The wests were triplets werent they? Would hate to be the brother that didnt make it
Naah pretty sure Cobi (Kobi?) and Cooper are twins. There's another one, Levi, who is only about 10 years old.
However if Rhylee kicks on and both twins get drafted there will certainly be pressure on poor ol' Levi!

We have an amazing amount of father sons. R West, Z Cordy, L Hunter, T Libratore, M Wallis as well as J Dunkley, Liam Picken, J Schache, and B Gowers. Add to them E Richards grandson of Ron Richards, Easton Wood son of champion athletes and Will Hayes from a high performance family too. Bevo is also from a legendary football family too. That’s a lot of family talent tha these players can hopefully draw from.

They both don't go alright from what I saw last year. Not the top of the draft pool but could fit into the mid to late draft quite easily.
We seem to have an abundance of picks in the 3rd round next year because of future trading, Gilbee and Grant likely to go around there or even later?

Any early-season impressions?
Haven't heard huge amounts other than the fact that they are nowhere near the standard of Tom Liberatore, Mitch Wallis, Rhylee West, etc.

Depending how they go this year, we may grab one or two of them late in the draft.

From the limited amount I know, Daniel Romero seemed to be the best of the group and could be a chance at being drafted (at least, he was for the last couple of years, may have changed since). Happy to be corrected on this

What kind of player is he?
Hero of the Day: Josh Kellett
The defender was superb at IKON Park. Most young backmen struggled in the strong Melbourne wind, but Kellett was impact in the air was huge, spiking them 20 meters into the grandstands at times. His work rate around the ground, as well as forward entries, made a real difference on Sunday's outcome, dpesite limited disposals.
This is from the Western Jets review.
