Got on the crabs over the off season ?.

It goes without saying but that wouldn't be hard.
He did scratch a couple of times in his highlight video...
He played on 98% of the time in his highlights package. Energetic and courageous. Put him on Balla for the match sims and watch the sparks fly!!! Training will draw a crowd like never before.
Well since Meds and Groves used to square off anyway.
I think he'll be more an Ibbo type player.
It means laughing in Thai PC slang !!
With his pace and mobility I think he'll play small. Both Balla and Walters have been closed down by 6'2+ players in the past.
I think his surname is an anglicised spelling of Aonghas which is the Scottish Gaelic spelling of Angus. My father-in- law is from Uist in Scotland and this was the spelling of his name as a child. Sort of pronounced new-iss.
To be fait to ibbo Im sure there are a few more loose targets at neafl level, bit easier.
Until proven otherwise Im going to assume his name is pronounced as a kath and kimesque noooice.
Commentators seem divided between nye-iss and nee-us.
if its not ny-house its niece ( they are the only ways I've heard it pronounced)
It's definitely pronounced Ny-House. Great pick up, super-dedicated (I think he has hardly touched alcohol in his entire life) and comes from a good family. Can play small or tall and will leave no stone unturned in getting the most out of his football ability.
Fascinating theory Bicco! But the name has more prosaic origins, I think. "Huis" is actually a Dutch word (pronounced "house" in Dutch) meaning "house". And "ny" is probably a shortened respelling of the Dutch word "nieuw" meaning "new". So the name means new-house, and is pronounced "nie-house".
Welcome to your new house, Mr Nyhuis
That sounds much better! Hopefully everyone has learnt a bit of Scottish Gaelic and Dutch.
If the name means new house,
& in Spanish house = casa, new = nova,
Is he the new Casanova?
Are we in Spain?
I just watched his highlights again. It seemed when he did most of his spoiling work he was playing on players significantly taller than him. Reminds me a bit of Shane Parker who was an awesome defender for us that excelled at playing on both talls and smalls. There is a run down tackle in the highlights which demonstrated fantastic pace. Highlights can obviously be misleading, but his kicking technique looks blood good too.
At training his skills look.as good as any of the new recruits. I think this is a good rookie pick. Fingers crossed.
Saw Parkes doing repeat bike climbs of Mount street on the weekend. Gave him a Freo shoutout. Still fit as a fiddle by the looks of him.

Coach's Comments (WAFL)
Rd 2 - First game of league and played on Brett Peake tough day for him but will learn a lot playing on ex-AFL players
Rd 3 - Played half-back on both small and medium sized players and did his job effectively. He continues to grow after his second game.
Rd 4 - Played on the wing and had only 12 touches. He continues to show signs of being a good player at the WAFL level.
Rd 6 - Played halfback and had a solid game. He held his own in one-on-one contests and was composed with the ball when coming out defence.
Rd 7 - Played back pocket against Perth and was reliable in defence. He continues to grow with each game and his use with the ball has been good.
Rd 8 - (N/A yet but was listed in the best players)
Nyhuis seems an ultra dependable back man for a rookie listed player and has some attributes that could become quite useful to Freo:
Leadership - captained the NT side in U18s
Accountable - defender that is athletic enough to play on both smalls and medium sized forwards
One-on-One - had some pretty impressive scalps when playing in the NEAFL (Stephen Milne, Jed Lamb)
Interceptor - seems to read the play quite well coming in and manages to position well to intercept or spoil
Kicking - has good skills on the rebound
It seems the only real knock on Ryan is his ability to win the ball. He doesn't rack up loads of possessions but he seems to be a relatively good decision maker and has quite a classy kick from what I have seen and heard. With Alex Pearce shoring-up as the key figure to Freo's defensive future and guys like Hughes and Tucker as other prospects, could Nyhuis continue his consistency and development at Peel and earn an upgrade and compete for a place in our back 6 at some point this season?
could be the kind of player we need to come good given the success mid-sized forwards have had against us. Smalls as well.
Have to bump this guys.
Nyhuis, in the middle of the Dome.
Nyhuis, where he'll make his AFL debut.
More importantly guys, HE'S THE DOCKERS' 200th PLAYER!
Plus kicked one with his first touch.
Ended up pantsing an established power rebounding backman with 4 snags.
Debutante humiliates established half star!!
That's the headline which will be spiked.
