I know worpel is in a form slump at the second. But i believe he can be a leader in time, just needs to sort out his form slump.

It's 95% above the shoulders with Worps. He just needs to learn how to make good decisions and execute under pressure.

And it must be a real conundrum for Sam, as that can't be learnt in the twos.

Reckon we missed a chance of taking another rioli in 2020, could of picked him as a late pick pressure forward which would of slotted in nicely with butler in time

I'm just as disappointed / frustrated with Worpel's form slump as any Hawk fan but it's important to remember that we don't know what is going on in these guys personal lives. The players are human just like us and could be going through any number of things that has contributed to where he is now. The most important thing he can do now is put his head down and start playing good footy wether that be at BH on the training track or in the 1s.

SEN had a great example with Finlayson and what was going on with him earlier in the year.
Just gotta throw our support behind him and back our club to support him out of it, however that looks!

We're an exciting young team with a good young coach.

If I'm a midfielder at another club who isn't getting enough midfield minutes, then the Hawks are an appealing option.

Thinking guys like Hopper at GWS. Plenty of others.
Hopper is injured otherwise he is a lock for bulk midfield minutes at GWS.

An article came out yesterday suggesting GWS can only keep one of him and Taranto due to salary cap pressure. If Hopper stays on ice for the rest of the season it may soften his value a touch and we could get him for cheap considering his talent.

They are still going to want at least one first for him.

I shouldn't have mentioned it because this isn't the hypothetical trade thread.

I'll just say that if club X has a salary squeeze then player Y may be available for cheaper if they requested to move to us.

That was Tom Browne Tom Browne so very very generous to call it an article
