Worth a look in the real stuff at some stage.
Physically, he looks a year away from it. Not sure how much longer we'll persist if he doesn't want to get his conditioning right for football and tidy up his kicking.Can't hurt. Has the tank. Does he have aggression? Could do with someone who plays the pill on its merits.
FTFY.Waste of a temporary list spot
Which is true but to a point.Don't get why people are so emotional about this.
Kemp is injured. Charlie is injured. We get to pick up a delisted/state league/undrafted player at pretty much no cost.
List is already full of talented youth who we need to be developing. Forward stocks are injury affected. 23yo, athletic, tall-ish forward to bolster the bottom of the depth stocks is a natural conclusion.
Allows us to retain a forward presence if Curnow and McKay are missing, Levi and Gov are playing seniors...and TDK maybe gets a look-in at senior level.
Which - in context - was because we were up against the wall and looked for "immediate impact"...which we got, given the player we selected played more games than anyone else taken in the mid season draft.Which is true but to a point.
Every opportunity that presents has to be considered seriously and executed properly.
e.g. Last years mid-year draft.
We have the first pick in that draft and are the only club that has quit that player.....and we finished third last.
.....and badly.Again - given the context right now, Moore (or, subtract the name, a delisted 23yo versatile forward with a >1 goal per game average at VFL level) makes sense. More sense than another kid who will probably languish behind all the first round draftees we've been stockpiling. The VFL side needs to improve for our development program, and that doesn't happen if we keep forcing them to play 10 teenagers every week.
Or we may have already done so with Honey and Phillips?.....and badly.
On profile alone, Moore makes for the best fit even if only for our VFL side.
We don't need more HBF's, MOR midfielders etc.
Put if forward here earlier, I would have liked for us to have taken a chance by identifying a small forward and put him under the tutelage of Betts.
It's all too late for that now, but we may look back and find an opportunity missed.
Maybe, but they're not exactly elusive, crumbing types. Maybe they don't have to be. I don't know.Or we may have already done so with Honey and Phillips?
And there's still the mid season draft ahead of us, and a better than even chance that someone on the list cops a significant injury by that stage. Could even see one of these cheeky "encouraged" retirements by mid season.
Shows great speed in kicking that goal and his first goal shows he is a good mark overhead.
The 2nd goal shows what he can do - be a tall HFF with pace.Shows great speed in kicking that goal and his first goal shows he is a good mark overhead.
Also, nice tap down that resulted in Owies' goal.
Because he probably won't be playing in the AFLThe 2nd goal shows what he can do - be a tall HFF with pace.
First goal came from poor defending where his man got lost and allowed him to mark just about uncontested. He won't get that luxury in the AFL
He is not going to give us a target up forward.
