I'm not opposed to giving him another look at AFL level against the bottom-placed team this week - it'll be much easier for the lad than a red-hot debut against the Dogs. Structure-wise we get an excuse to put Moore back and JDG a longer stint in the middle.

I also think he'll be well-served in putting together a block of performances like these in the VFL and really earning his trip back after the halfway mark.

You're all welcome for this post.

I think we are looking for a priority pick.
Love some draft concessions. Netted GCS Davies and Jeffrey last draft, Rowell and a heap of other draft capital in 2019, and Corbett, Collins, and Burgess in 2018. And their list is now capped at 53 players. Still hasn't finished playing out. Can you organise something like that?

You make a very compelling argument.

He's still simply got a boy's body, has the attributes but not yet developed enough to hold his ground or position in a marking duel.
So why was he played? Most posters agreed he should not get a game on the strength of a couple of good VFL quarters. He will again be back in the VFL though the concussion injuries we suffered may gift him another game. The Swans will destroy him.

Having to compete with McKay was definitely not ideal. But agree that he doesn't look ready for seniors. Doesn't offer a lot of forward defensive pressure either.

I wouldn't complain if they give him another week. But I'm starting to think developing in the VFL might be best for him this year
