Hs anyone got any updates on the progress of these boys?
Was wondering how Nick Daicos was coming along.

Always heard that he was immensely talented.

Daicos missed selection for the Oakleigh under 16’s this year so might not be draftable quality

Did he trial though?

Players physically develop at different rates or can lose interest for a period of time in the sport.

Perhaps concentrating solely on schooling or hanging with his mates is more important this year for Nick.

I wouldn't be to concerned at present as what he achieves or doesn't at U18 level is all that will matter.

P.S-Of course I wouldn't put it entirely past clubs to start doctoring the exposure level of highly touted father sons from this point onwards either to try and drive down the eventual asking price.

Didn't Tyler Brown and/or Josh only play school football up until their draft year when they finally competed in the now named NAB league?

I’m sure I heard somewhere along the line that Nick was being held out of rep footy, and was just going to play for school/APS.

Either way, you don’t go from all-world to can’t make the Oakleigh U16’s squad that quickly. Something doesn’t add up there.
Peter told me last week at a function that he had been held back.

Not making the U16’s means very little anyway.

It’s genius, don’t play rep footy so his draft stick doesn’t rise. All part of the plan so we only have to use pick 50 on him than pick 10

Out of curiosity I wonder which side has had the most father sons in at one time, in one game?

Geelong must have been thereabouts.

We have had Moore Daicos Brown in a game.

Geelong must have been thereabouts, Essendon with Danihers...

Danihers werent father sons, except for the latest one. Cats may have had 2 Abletts, Scarlett and Hawkins - but not sure.
