    Brander showed some promise at CHF yesterday.

    Ryan has been off so far. Rushing his disposal and fumbly.

    Ainsworth looks like he will make it as an AFL b-grader IMO. Doesn't look out of place.

    Brayshaw didn't play much. But gov in an interview said he was so full of confidence that he has nicknamed himself Sugar (as in SugarBray).

    I thought he was the Best Fit for Collingwood but we went with a Lesser Need in X-Factor and Pace with Stephenson

    So did I actually.

    I wanted us to take Stephenson. I know he can't kick but the rest of him is exciting.

    His kicking has actually been not too bad. Definitely thought it was going to be a lot worse.

    Heaven. I mean Victoria.
    Yeah they certainly showed the other night why they were getting such big wraps internally, and they continued last week, with Newnes saying they'd looked as good and comfortable in their first preseasons as anyone had since he got to the club.

    Coffield with 20 disposals and 6 intercepts (2nd-best for us, 2 of them intercept marks) from just 71% of the shortened game, and Clark just oozed class, skill and poise with pretty much every touch (hence going at 92% efficiency).

    He already looks incredibly comfortable and proficient on his left and his technique there looks better than plenty who kick predominantly on that side. The fact he's really hard at it, tackles a heap and is versatile just adds to the mix.

    If they perform to a similar standard on Thurs it will be extremely hard to not have both of the in the team from R1, especially since they bring some skills/attributes to the table which we need.

    You guys would be very happy with Fritsch I imagine?

    Bailey Williams missed his flight and rocked in looking like a mix of Karl Langdon in his playing days and Slim Shady.

    Not the ideal first impression but like all draftees he is saying all the right things to make up for it.

    There’s a buzz in the air at Tulla though and it’s not low flying aircraft.

    :)Jackson Hately's dad used to be Phil Davis's biology teacher. We'll be watching closely if Phil looks harassed to push for his inclusion.

    :( Taking on the cursed no 11 jumper was considered to much for the teenagers and the mature Tommy Sheridan gets a huge task.

    Previously held by Chad Cornes,Taylor Adam's, Jed Lamb, Jack Steele and Will Setterfield.

    :DIf he turns it around the might be a life membership in it.

    Quaynor and Bosenvulangi both have AFL ready bodies, and Quaynor was amongst the best in our 2k TT. Kelly unsighted as yet, still recovering from a foot injury.

    Ely Smith cracked the barest of smiles, then headbutted and ate the camera after promising to bury every draftee that went before him.

    Both Tom Berry and Tom Joyce were seen throwing up as Ely ate the camera.
