Getting mentioned by Dimma,So he's getting closer which is great to hear.
Be great but could you imagine if all our indigenous players on our list all played in the seniors which may happen.:thumbsu:

Do you rate him?? I haven’t seen much of him
He's a good mover. Covers the ground really well and is very balanced. Has always had a fair bit of confidence in his agility to get himself out of tight spots, ie not a panic merchant, and has a very sweet left foot. Seems to have added a fair bit of aggression which he needed to. I remember watching him play basketball as a kid and his balance and agility really stood out.

Yes. He’s basically lost a year in his development, but signs were there in 17. Looks to have come back faster and stronger so I’m on his side to pounce on Menadue if he fails again. This is a perfect year to look at your list to see who will make it and who will not .Fortunately the Egg is not hard boiled yet.

Guru and other regular VFL watchers- how quick is this dude? Are we taking Rioli/ Stack like speed?
I’ve watched him a bit but haven’t really noticed.
Reason I ask is that it’ll be a big bonus at AFL level if he’s got that extra yard to go with that long left foot (and improved contested ball).

Has great hands, an accurate kick and great balance combined with good pace. Has come on in leaps and bounds since he was first drafted. Should be in line for a senior birth this year IMHO. A keeper.

Is he competing for the same spot as Markov?.... Cos atm it's starting to sound like Eggmolesse-smith is becoming the player I think they thought Markov may have become> Having said that markov has had a rotten run with injuries & consistent game time...

From what I’ve seen of him that’s not how he plays , more evasive than using his leg speed , like Maurice Rioli gets clear and uses that piercing left foot

All Hail The Egg. Good luck young fella for never giving up and fighting your way back from a long road of injuries.
Can’t wait to see you crack the opposition with your speed leap and poise. A real Tiger is one that never stops fighting and continues to believe.

Hoping the Egg kicks 3..... He's a defender View attachment 703411
Well at least he was honest. When I saw the team yesterday I nearly fell off my chair. I've been a huge fan of eggy ever since he walked in and I reckon if he plays well on the weekend its inevitable that he becomes a cult figure with a name like that.
