Doesn't get that involved in games, general athleticism, he isn't skilful enough for that midsized forward role. Doesn't pressure enough for a small forward role.
He's a kid. It took his brother 5 years to look like a budding star of the competition and the majority of us love him around here.
He's young and has legitimate talent, that in itself makes him viable for our list.
I think if I was managing this list I'd want to keep as many forward positions open to dual position mids as possible. We will need to both blood kids and rotate the geriatrics. Same for defenders but I can only see Kroeger slotting in that way looking at the current listwould he be a good mid sized forward replacement for Rohan?
Jez, Neale, Henry, Miers, Close, Stengle. after Tomma calls it.
Then we need to trade somebody out to get extra picks. Who could that be?Watching blues tonight makes me think we are even more off a flag than we realise. It’s hard to fathom but there is a chance that not one player on our list will be there for our next flag.
I don’t think we’ll ever drop completely but we need a full list overhaul. Building premiership lists requires batches of elite young players rising together, over a few drafts. I’m talking 12 - 14 guns together over say 3 - 5 drafts. Topped up with a few trades snd FA’s.
We are so far off it’s not funny. Of our young list, I think SDK is the only future A grade superstar in the making. Stengle close Holmes look good… but we need about 8-10 more really good prospects coming through… they haven’t even been drafted yet.
I have no doubt we can do it… I think we have the best or top 3 off field structures, a good culture and some good heads at the top… but it is going to take a long time. A decade maybe to get back up and challenging legitimately.
Exciting times ahead. We MUST prioritise 4 picks within the top 30 the next 3-5 drafts.
