Probably the player I’ve least followed on our list.

Anyone here really keen on him?
Where do we see him playing if he were to push into the A’s?
Big fan of his

imo best kick at the club going by training, effortless left foot

I like him more as the intercepting hbf setting us up back there but the coaches seem to like him as a forward flanker

Anyone between 170-200cms is seen as a HFF at the mighty NMFC!

Matt McGuinness was another player that was in line to return to the VFL in the coming weeks, but unfortunately re-injured his foot on Thursday at training and an expected return date is still to be determined.

Very sad for the boy. Clearly doesn't have a body that is up for the rigours of AFL football. A real shame as he apparently has great foot skills on him.

Cat B Rookie, May aswell give him another year.

Feel for the kid, he hasn’t had much of a crack over the last two years with covid last year and the foot injury this year.
Yep exactly can still keep him as a cat b rookie for 1 more year so seems worth it. His kicking impressed me during the training sessions I’ve been to

hope we sign another second cat b rookie also we’ve kept that spot vacant for a long time

I hope they persist, I have seen a couple of VFL games where I thought he looked good. He seems to get to smart positions and is tall with good marking skills. I think it’s a type of player we need. I reckon he has built up a bit, he just started so damn skinny.
