From fox:

PICK 17: OLIVER HENRY

Clubs:
Geelong Falcons/Vic Country

Position: Forward

Size: 188cm/79kg

Bio: There’s a lot to like about the brother of Geelong’s Jack, with the forward one of the lively options inside 50 for clubs inside the first round. He marks the ball well overhead close to goal and creates a spark around the ball. In the NAB League last year, Henry booted 18 goals from 15 matches, averaging 10 touches. At the moment, clubs will be picking Henry on potential, knowing he can develop into a good option in the attacking half of the ground. He does have the ability to move onto the wing, but appears likely to start his AFL life as a forward.

They said on the Fox call he’s basically a Jack Gunston clone.
The guy we were after all trade period and we picked him up in the draft as a slider. I am genuinely stoked with this pick. Should play Round 1.

Yeah I chuckled when I heard them mention Gunston.

Not sure he plays rd 1 though.

To be fair they compared about a dozen different players to Gunston on the coverage.

Great get. Love the fact he plays forward in a game and kicks 5, then plays back in another and takes 7 intercept marks. Looks a real talent. Can see him playing senior footy next year.

Is there any other teams?
Never really considered Hnery tbh as I never expected him to get to our first pick. Most had him top 12 so this seems a great get in the late teens.

I thought he was actually a bit taller than his 188cm but he looks to bring some real quality traits to the table. Great grab and hits the score board.

It looks like the Gunston comparisons have already been made; that was my first thought too when I watched his highlights and read his write ups.

We may not have been able to land the Hawk gun in trade but we've hopefully got a kid on our list now who can turn into something similar with age on his side.

Go well Oliver.
