Enjoy your debut Sam :)

“It is great to be able to bring another local boy into the team as it is really important for us to be able to foster that local talent,” Longmire said.
“Sam is a young player who came through the QBE Sydney Swans Academy system and will put some pressure on as a small forward.
“It is really exciting for him and we will just be looking for him to put pressure on in our front half.”

LRT is his manager :D

“I am super excited for the opportunity and just can’t wait to get out there with the boys,” Wicks said.
“The reason I am in the team is to bring my pressure and tackling, so I will be doing my best to bring that as much as I can.”

Hope he gets another chance at some point in the season. Did some nice things.

For our first goal of the match. He crumbed the ball and kicked the ball towards Thurlow in the goal square.

For Papley's goal in the 2nd quarter. He pressured two Collingwood defenders to cause the loose ball and then shepherded for Papley.

Liked his game a lot. Instantly provided more than Gray or Taylor have been. Powerful running, manic pressure, cracking tackles and some clever ball use in the forward line to kick a goal and set up another. Loved it and want to see a lot more of him.
