    Still looks about 12. Had hoped that he may have put on a few more kg's by now.

    Esava is one we should keep an eye on....he might be raw, but he's one good athlete. Checked his combine stats the other day...they are really impressive.

    He seems to be able to take a contested mark at the pointy end of his reach, so I'm keen to see how he develops too.

    On the plus side, it looks like his counterpart Simpson has added a bit of size.

    Effectively he was in the same position at Adelaide as Hamling was at Geelong. Behind Rutten/Talia and then Talia/Lever. Very fine line in being picked up by another club as a delisted free agent and heading home to play state league.

    I didn't realise about the Reilly stuff, that has to really shake a young guy, then the Phil Walsh murder to top it off.

    I'm really bullish about Siggins and would have liked to have rookied him instead.

    Gore I think will find it tough with GHS and Constable similar players that will get selection and positional preference as listed players over a top up.

    Hard to glean too much from a highlights package but he certainly appears to have some useful attributes to work with. I wonder if he settles well in Geelong and is regarded as draft worthy next year, that, given his mental health history, clubs will allow us to pick him up either in the ND or as a rookie without much fuss?

    Huge lad, isn't he? Height: 196cm Weight: 93kg - Siggins looks so agile for his size + a lovely kick, plays forward, back + ruck.

    Dubious hairstyle choices though :p

    O'Bree said something to the effect that the strategy to recruit players with senior experience + leadership qualities was to help develop + mentor the Kittens.

    I've been wondering why we recruited him, if Crows delisted him? ???

    Perhaps he played badly, on purpose, to return to Geelong ;)

    IIRC Gore got popped pretty good in a preseason game v. Cats. Could that have had effect on his playing?

    This is BF turbo. Development is a dirty word among some who frequent this portal.

    Doubt they would deliberately overlook him in that scenario. It would be good if mature age top ups in aligned reserve teams could go through a nomination/bidding system like father son and academy players. Put a couple of rules in place to stop shenanigans like the player must be 21 or over to stop clubs warehousing elite 18 year olds and make it so it only applies to former AFL players if the players were eligible as delisted free agents when they left the AFL system ie someone uncontracted can't just walk to feeder club of their choice and get picked up by the senior team in 12 months, they would only be eligible for the system if the original club didn't offer them a contract before they were delisted. Rewards the clubs for putting the effort into developing non listed players and would improve the overall talent pool which is needed with 18 clubs.

    Also Tsitas does well at VFL level, but i reckon Gore might be better than him... You can play Gore on the Wing or a Flank, he's reasonably strong in the air and at ground level for a 183cm guy. So rapt we have Gore back, I like him.
