Have to say, Marsh sounds very promising and it's a shame he didn't get a run in the JLT. Absolutely one to keep an eye on, and hopefully there'll be more to update the thread on soon.Marsh was another beacon for the Sharks in 2018. His on-field presence as a leader and dominant player have been evident all year. Playing predominately down back this year, Marsh has held some of the competition’s best scoreless – his skills evident with his selection in the WAFL State side.
Always like the long sleeve look lol .
Most of you will have seen this by now but a great first interview from Marsh - he appears to be very well spoken and absolutely stoked to have been given another crack. I think his enthusiasm will be infectious amongst the playing group and will hopefully lift the spirits after this morning's dreadful news about Robbo.
Marsh is extremely quick, running the 20 metre sprint in 2.78 seconds at the draft combine in 2013. This is the equal second fastest time ever recorded, something made all the more impressive by the fact that he is almost 4 inches taller than only player to ever run it quicker (Joel Wilkinson 2010, 2.75sec). This will surely give us some wonderful rebound pace off half back. At 194cm and 87kg, Marsh should be able to hold his own against many KPFs, but may be out of his depth against the larger forwards. Of course, barring significant injury to the likes of Brown, Austin and Joyce, I don't think it will really be his role as he seems much more suited to a third/loose intercepting defender role.
Unfortunately, the WAFL don't seem to post detailed stats beyond the basic ones, so his impact for East Freo last season is difficult to quantify statistically. In saying that, during his 10 game stint Collingwood in 2016, Marsh ended the season 3rd among rising stars for both one percenters per game and intercepts per game, with his season average for these stats 37th and 45th overall in the league, respectively. Not a bad effort for a

One last thing, he appears to be rocking a long sleeved guernsey in heaps of his Pies highlights. Would love to have a regular long-sleeve guernsey back at the Saints, it's been a few years since Milney!
