Cheers! Was hard to see from the other end of the ground.
Can be a cruel game sometimes.
I thought Banks was by far the best player on the ground until he got injured, daylight 2nd. Wasn’t real impressed with what I saw of Sonsie tbh. Can’t believe Banks isn’t rated higher on various draft boards.
What do you think?

How long banks expected be out for?
Not sure. Think it was a bad break. Knocked off balance in a marking contest (took the grab) and instinctively put his hand down to break his fall. His wrist took the full brunt of his weight coming down, so looks like a clean break. Was on the magic whistle waiting for the ambulance ☹

Exactly this. Banks is a spitting image of Lachlan Sholl but even better in the air and probably has more speed.

Correct. The best thing about him is his disposal and decision making. He’s at a high AFL level with his kicking on left and right foot right now, short kicking and 50-60 mtr bullets. With how the game is played now, he would be a real weapon for any side in the comp.

I really like Josh Sinn.

Do you think he could be one of our targets this year eDPS or do you think Essendon will go a bigger midfielder like Johnson?

We need tall midfield depth and more defenders who can play small so it’s a hard choice to make. Sinn can play midfield but perhaps is the contested type that we need. I’d lean to Johnson but would be happy with either.

Any thoughts on Lukas Cooke Key forward from Woodville West. Kicked 7.1 in the under 18's on the weekend against a good side. A mate watching the game said he has come on in leaps and bounds over the past 6-8 months. Really good work rate and natural forward craft.

Was a great game and looked very promising, would like to see how he goes against a very good defender as the South Adelaide backline is rather short.

I would love to know a little more about McInnes out of Glenelg. Tracked him a bit over the preseason where he had 16 goals in three games coming off a big season last year in a shortened fixture. What are the initial takeaways from him?

He is a strong and smart forward, a bit undersized and perhaps a bit like Tim Membrey in a way. I’d like to see him push up the ground more as he gets a lot of the ball deep inside 50 which won’t happen at the next level
