Some serious hindsight bias occurring in here RE drafting; recruiters do there best would’ve genuinely rated someone like Poholke over Graham, but sometimes these kids just have something intangible going on in their head that can be the difference between them making it or not - and that is extremely tough to judge when they are 17 or 18.

Probably but Graham was u16 u18 state captain u18 AA and Larke medalist his old man played SANFL footy

Its not as though he hasn't shown anything

Graham is still in and out of Richmond’s side

He’s better than poholke but he’s no star, just a good ordinary player

And def not someone to give a crap about missing out on

Crow till I die chazwazza

I see the Double blues have "pinched" one of our development players Jy Farrar for season 2020...

Bloody SANFL clubs at it again pinching all our good players.......... ;) :p

Be funny now if the AFC or one of the AFL clubs swoop now and draft/rookie him after his impressive showing at the SA State Combine. :fire:

I spoke with a young Sturt lad recently that happened to go quite well in the recent combine, Sturt have recruited very well so far - Abe Davis, Jordan Houlahan (back from Essendon) and Dean Gore!! - THE Dean Gore. Apparently Rose from Sydney is also on the Radar....Now young Farrar. This particular lad i spoke with was quite excited about things at Sturt. Hoping the AFL give the Blues a miss this year come draft night, although if the crows are looking the young lad i spoke with I think could be a real x factor player - looks very talented

Yeh, I’m amazed how well and how early we’re recruiting players so far, it’s pretty impressive. I was going to ask on here about Farrar and what the thoughts were of his couple of games.
Mutineer, what’s the background of Day, cousin of Sam Day. What’s he like and where has he been playing, club and position?

Will Day [Blood 'n' Tars] played mainly across half back at the U18's Championships but still very immature body wise but more upside than most youngsters in this draft. 188cm 70 kg with a lot of development to come, athletic, quick, extremely good in the air with X factor off the charts. Think he could play in all areas of the ground personally with his talent base.

Does Will hail from the Robert/Ian family?

Ah thanks - so grandson of Robert, great nephew of Ian.

Hmmm now where does Sam fit in...cousin?
Yep , Will mentioned that in an interview a while back he'd had a few chats with cuz since he's had plenty of AFL clubs come knocking in recent times.

Sam is Ian’s grandson. Will and Sam second cousins.

I remember seeing Robert play for West and SA but I never saw Ian play even though I was a Panthers barracker as a kid and he played for them and West but he was just before I really got serious about my football...I do remember him being on the Sunday SA footy show on telly back then, reckon his nick name on there was Daisy. Wally May and Pat Hall a couple of others I vaguely remember from that show. And a Warhurst bloke I reckon had a son that played for Norwood I think?

You're correct it was Ian "Daisy" Day. Tom Warhurst was the Norwood player. IIRC correctly Daisy's go to call was "with a leap like a startled gazelle." KG's was "Strike me pink."
