hes a category b rookie....you know, a project player. it costs us stuff all, and he doesnt take a spot on our main list. hes a low risk/high reward spot.
This, has 2 more years after this where he can still be cat B

After the 3rd year we have to make a decision but should know more by then

Now we just hope he keeps improving over the next few years to the point where we decide to elevate him

For this guy to be playing Suburben football is nothing but a joke this the AFL not some 2nd string competition must delist at the end of the year I feel sorry for him but this is a business now a suburban competition like the VFL of the 60,70 and 80s where you can carry guys like this for up to 5 years
Do you know anything of his background?

His ruck work was decent. But AFL he looks a long way off it. Needs a lot of work on the track, diet and weights.

And needs to put his body in around packs. Only his 2nd game so.

I was about to say "wow" then remembered that the Wallabies are now comparatively worse than the Australian Cricket Team.
