I think we will find Alex Pearce can play as a small forward.
We've got to get a little more realistic about the level of his talent.
If he plays down back he will be very good, anywhere else he will be run of the mill.

Obviously don't rate him. Other than back? Let's move him on then ? We're in great position at the moment. Might as well send Weller back to tassie with him. 14 game player who has had to play back, ruck and forward. Agree would like to see him settle but he's doing what the team needs. His effort and will to contest should be wake up call to others who look like they can't give a stuff or aren't up to it? ?

I'm not sure where u get all that from mate? I rate him very highly, I just think he looks so comfortable down back and that's where he should be settled. I Think he's ab AA defender in time & if thats he helps the team most long term that's where we should be seeing him play.

Guy is a 200cm utility. Freakishly good for his size. Needs to start holding a few more marks & tidy the kicking but he is a gem.

Easily our most exciting draftee since Fyfe. Size, speed, skill, nous, temperament, raw athleticism- he's the real deal. Would prefer for him to stick to the one craft for the time being (defender) but eventually he's going to be a potent swingman, will make guys like Carlisle and Westhoff look like chumps.

Run of the mill if not playing back. Better than Tabs because Tabs apparently hopeless, and his ball drop awful. Anything positive about the kid ? Put him up for trade then. Betcha plenty interested.
Are you even reading his posts?

Alex deserves alllll the toast threads. He's been thrown in the deep end so much for Freo in his short career so far, and it's super impressive to see how he shouldered the load over the weekend after Sandi went down. Loved seeing this photo too: AP > NN
