Alex Johnson? Another KPD? WTF!

KCollins, Johnson, Macreadie, BSilvagni, Goddard, Schumacher and then possibly Plowman? Not a player under 190cm

What are we thinking? How does this work for the development of our tall KPD's through the NB's?
I don't get it..........again. Does the left hand know what the right hand is doing?

EDIT: So a bit of a development coach, whilst playing. That's a little bit different. Welcome Alex

The earliest he's coming back is August, so he plays at most a couple of games.

How could Johnson not be excited to be part of the environment at Carlton? Just walking in the front door at Princes Park is exciting by itself.

Easy to forget just how big an impact our injury issues would have had on the Northern Blues in 2018.

With a bit of luck on that front, they could be a real surprise packet in 2019.

That's because they're both flat-footed.

Hey Jimm, do you know what happened to Jordan Johnson during the 2018 season? In the pre season games he looked really exciting as a medium size forward, but didn't see his name appear on the team sheet a lot during the home and away.

He was still only 18 during the home and away, so I just assumed he may have been in a 'development team'?

All VFL-listed players were linked to an amateur club last season.

It would seem his fitness levels didn't progress well enough over the pre-season.

Cheers Jimm, gotcha. If he can get his fitness levels up to the required standards, he may be one to keep an eye on in 2019 (if he's on the NB's list).
