That's going to be a really interesting game.

We have WCE in Perth. An acid test to get things underway. R2 is GWS at MCG.
I reckon the Saints are going to find out what we did Round 1 this year - going out and recruiting five or six players and cramming them all into the same team has significant issues for a while.

All banter aside, Thomas will be an absolute star. Top 10 player in the league kind of talents in 4-5 years.
possibly but most likely not.

Meanwhile Oliver has already been AA, won 2 b&fs, won an AFLCA best young player award and had 2 top 10 finishes in the AFLCA award in his 4 years of AFL football. If Thomas has those accolades at the end of his career he will be doing well

Oliver’s done well. Thing about TT, he can actually kick and run. Look forward to looking back at his career and comparing the two

Oliver absolute gun in my eyes. So what are your reasons for not thinking Thomas will be elite He has played 1 season what is he lacking in your opinion.

Never said he couldn't/wouldn't be elite. I think he looks extremely promising.

Just pointed out he could possibly be a top 10 player in 4-5 years but that is unlikely as it is bloody hard to be a top 10 player. There are plenty of elite players who aren't in the top 10 players in the league

Looking forward to discussing in 4-5 years. Because, you know, his stats right now (whilst playing as a forward in his first year of footy) have nothing to with what his output would be in 4-5 years.
