Frail and weak is a bit stiff, as an 18yr old after 3 games.

Having said that, I would expect he does go back to the VFL next week in order to get his hands on the pill and build some confidence.
He is for all intents and purposes the same size as Mccreery

One has the tennacity to attack the ball, man and contest and one doesn’t.

You can’t teach that, you have it or you don’t

I’m not sold on him.

Frail and weak, lacks courage.

not sure he will grow into the player we expect...
Lacks courage?? Wtf are you watching? He's also a kid, so being weaker than others is a surprise to nobody

I’m watching the same game as you.

The kid has played more games than he had tackles laid. Let that sink in.

On the contrary, our own Mccreery and Poulter are more than happy to throw their weight around.

I watch the Essendon game too, Perkins was a standout, putting his body on the line.

I get that you’re trying to support a kid, fine. But don’t let it cloud your judgement.

Let's be honest in a good team his playing VFL until ready ..
Nah in a good team he would get minutes in the midfield with support from our senior players and our forwards will have a role in a game plan that actually gives them a chance to make an impact rather than just chase around trying to play zone defence.

I'd do that if Macrae has a couple of decent games on the wing. Confidence is king and Macrae looked really lacking in it on the weekend.
Think a rotation of Murphy, poulter, macrae etc on wings couldn’t hurt, which is why I’m against Mayne being selected. I’m 100% in development mode. We are 1/6, it’s basically 2022 pre season for us

Rantall is NOT a Wingman
Moore came to the club as a forward - we moved him to the backline and lookey lookey we made an AA backman.

Peter Daicos was a sensational, generational centre man but injuries forced him to the forward line where he proceeded to reinvent the forward game.

No one's career is set in stone TD.
