Is he any good?
We would have won the vfl premiership had he played. Unfortunately a young rfc vfl staff member in fitness told us he was going to be hidden away as we wanted him badly. Has a serious leap and some wheels from the games I saw him play in. Get excited

If that’s true, I like the way the club is going about it’s business! Smart and effective.

Derek came from nowhere, as in never made Pioneers squads/ B & F's etc, to a breakout year at 17 playing a running half back at Wentworth seniors. 3 way tie winner of the league B & F in Mildura league. Very confident with ball in hand, very quiet guy normally. About 183cm and lean, but has natural endurance and kicks beautifully. Classy. In close will be his challenge, but has done so well so far so why not. Great to see players coming through our academy system, without which I doubt he would have been noticed. (outside of Sunraysia)

Took a couple of days, now his tyres are being pumped. Hope Dekkers can live up to it. But given the nature of what people are saying it sounds like we might have a freebie of high quality. I like it that it is people that have seen him or talked to RFC staff about him. Rather than 2nd hand rumour base on Cousin Beevis' Uncle Knuckles friend with benefits pillow talk.

Nice pick up. By reports improved a heap over the season. Lightning fast, decent skills and good attitude. Great size if we can add some meat to him.

Lot to work with young Dekker.

Welcome to Tigerland, and long may you thrive here.
Was overlooked as a Cat B rookie last year by the club. Great reward for his hard work in pursuing his AFL dream.

I think we would have won the VFL flag if Lennon had given more of a stuff

Ran into a rfc vfl bloke in recent days , yep they'd most definitely seen enough of him, however so had a few others as he had 5 req to attend draft screening
