In addition to that, Reef has pace to burn, which should become evident when his tank improves, and Poulter seems to have some wheels on him too, while Nick Daicos has looked pretty quick in the NAB league this year. From a future midfield make up perspective, I think we’re actually looking pretty good for speed. That doesn’t help us short term unfortunately.
The word is that Nick is noticeably quicker than Josh.

I just really want to get the building blocks in place first, so that Nick can come in as Alan Didak rather than having to be Nathan Buckley (the player).

Saw Finlay Macare at the 2012 AFL Draft

View attachment 1109881

Imagine telling that little boy that, 8 years later, he'd be training alongside Brodie Grundy.

Furthermore, imagine telling Finlay that he'd actually play alongside Grundy.

Lastly, imagine telling Finlay that he and Jackson would have a mutual teammate and that the mutual teammate's name is Jordan Roughead.

Another thing TradeDraft.

Jackson Macrae's draft pick (6) + Finlay's (19) = 25.

Take away the 2 (mutual teammates of Roughead who happen to be half-brothers) and you get 23. (Jordan Roughead's career AFL guernsey number.)

You should take away the 3 though as Roughead should be included in the which nets you 22 so no coincidence here sorry

Nah.

I'm keeping it as a Venn diagram.

Of which, Finlay occupies one of the outside spaces.

Don't know how it's a coincidence when it's an observation anyway.

Mk - not everyone is a fan of the endless stream of mind numbingly irrelevant 'statistics' as you are.
Why you even bothered to record disagreement is mind boggling.
Anyway have a great day.

He looks very nervous out there. You can tell a player is nervous when they’re going for uncontested chest marks instead of meeting the ball with out stretched arms

only 62% game time...

Give him a rest. Rotate him out, bring Rantall back in

This is how we should introduce all the young players... 2-5 game blocks... depending on how well they hold up

Rotate them out, bring another one in
Yes but 4 games minimum. 2's not enough. They have to be given pressure free blocks of games enough to let the nerves settle and begin to show signs of what they can do.
He is slow as treacle. Needs to do burst sprint training next offseason.

Yes, agreed. Fin looked out on his feet in that last 10 mins, but he kept pushing himself and will strengthen with time. Blocks of games in the 1s will push the development of these kids and show what they are capable of.
