Not the slightest bit worried about our kids coming through. Excited even if hasn't worked this year.

Add 2 more firsts this draft, ideally quick mids with skills, it's a very good core to build from.

It's the 25year plus group we have major problems with.

I'm sure this only summarises what most on here think, but the club has got to move heaven and earth to keep the current U23 group together - TT, LDU, Bailey, Jy, Zurhaar, Larkey, WW, Curtis - that's a group you can build a flag side around. Make it happen, Eugene
Amazing call. From that batch you've mentioned, only Jy has proven he can play consistently at AFL level. My goodness. I've read posts like this on here for 15 years - Dylan Smith, Taylor Garner, Joel Tippet, Vickers-Willis, Ryan Clarke, Wagner, S Atley, K Harper, Bastinac, B Mckenzie.......were all players we could build a flag around......

Well on the wireless yesterday Westerns
very own Bob Murray said this was the most skilled side he’d ever seen North field .

And Bob was given a premiership medal without even playing , that’s how good he was.
WTF is wrong with you? Who listens to Rev Bob? In fairness I suppose there were five missing from the side that beat GW$.

Handy five at that. Cunners, JZ ( yeah I rate him) TT, Zurhaaar and Anderson who would improve us no doubt. Not premiership improve of course.

It's not even the best young group in 10 years. There's a bit of promise but haven't changed my mind that Goldstein, Thomas, Tarrant, Greenwood, Thompson, Ziebell, Cunnington, Daw, Wright, Hansen, Grima was a pretty handy 1-4 year group 10 years ago too.

So in the space of a month, Rev Bob has seen the most skillfull North side and potentially the least skillfull (assuming he has watched us since).

That is quite something.

yeah, nah, I'm standing by my original call (always look on the bright side, dee-dum, dee-dum, dee-dum etc); TT, Curtis, Zurhaar and Jy have all shown more X-factor at their stages of their careers than any of that group....I admit to some bias; I was at Thomas' debut game against the Pies when he kicked five points and we lost by less than a goal, some things you just can't forgive and forget

We are 2020.

I'm no mathematician but even I clearly suspect there's a huge hole there regarding 15 years Zondor......sorry Arthur.

Our juniors are much more exciting than our mid level seniors outside a couple.
