A former basketballer ! :)

Scouting notes: WAFL vs. SANFL State Game

#33 Michael Knoll
The former basketballer was a deserving winner of the Foss Williams Medal (South Australia’s Best on Ground medal) in the Croweater’s victory over the Sandgropers. He finished with 15 possessions, 31 hitouts, five marks, four tackles and three inside 50s.

BOG in a state game would be pretty rare for a ruck you would think. Well over 200cm, only ruckman to go in the draft. I honestly think we got the best possible outcome for us here with this one given what was available.
