Wing. He's not really a forward. Can easily kick 30 goals a season from the wing. Everyone wins..
I got hounded down by a few for calling him our best raw talent and saying he was on the way to be one of the best half backs in the league.Did they ever?
I did see an Insta Story with Connor and Ross having a cold one in Ireland recently. no doubt the Irish boys are instant-brothersWonder how much influence he's had on the new Irish blokes joining us. I mean obviously him transitioning successfully and the club supporting him, allowing him to go home mid-season for his brother's wedding and whatever else is attractive.
But in terms of what he might have personally done, I know one of them stayed with him in Melbourne during some testing and such. I think it was in an article from an Irish website but I forget which. I believe McKenna has been in Ireland over the off-season though, so perhaps he'd have linked up with them over there as well, particularly McBride who only apparently committed to us/us to him a couple of weeks ago.
McKenna scored a second-half goal to help Eglish defeat Edendork, 2-9 (15) to 1-10 (13), and maintain its Division One spot.Oh no....request to move to Eglish coming....
Conor McKenna has returned to his Gaelic football roots to play a relegation playoff game for a club near where he grew upm.afl.com.au
