wow - cheers, msr, had no idea..........does he get 32? sorry fazz - bryan rang the bell at the g last week............



The grandson of Carlton premiership player Bryan, Kye Quirk arrives at the Northern Blues as part of its latest influx of talent from the NAB League (formerly TAC Cup). Quirk was the runner-up in the Eastern Ranges’ best-and-fairest count in 2018, proving himself to be a midfield accumulator. Eclipsing the 30-disposal mark on five occasions, Quirk averaged over 25 disposals a game for the Ranges last season. With Blue in his blood, he’ll be hoping to make an impression in his first season in the VFL system.
God speed young Quirky and get a haircut of some sort...ffs ;)

What kind of build is manton?

Fairly solid build, seems to be a bit of a power type player from the little I've seen. Didn't see the game so I don't know how he got his goals, just reporting the stats and making a semi-educated guess as to whether he is draft worthy.

Certainly a different build to his old man & is not the most mobile forward going around. Maybe being on an AFL list would see him develop a body shape more suitable to AFL footy. I would suggest he would be a rookie selection at best, but more likely to find his way onto the Northern Blues' list if the club want to keep a close eye on him.

The only problem with that is he would then be up for grabs for any AFL club, as far as I'm aware, and the club might think the power side to his game was too good to risk. He seems to be mobile enough in bursts, when directly contesting the footy, but seems flatfooted at the moment when he has to chase.

True, but I don't think he has done enough to get onto an AFL list yet. One would love to know how much interest, if any, our recruiters have in Manton.

Can't outline the Manton article, but here's the next best thing


The son of a former AFL defender showcased his ability in the attacking half for Western Jets on Saturday. Archi Manton, the son of ex-Carlton and Essendon player Glenn, booted a season-best haul of five goals in the Jets’ NAB League loss to Oakleigh Chargers.

The 193cm forward had just seven kicks and three marks, but was particularly influential in the final term of his side’s 22-point loss. The 18-year-old Williamstown CYMS product has 25 goals from 14 games in 2019, kicking three majors against Northern Knights and Tasmania Devils earlier this season.
“He started the game the little slowly, but he was quite pivotal in the last quarter,” Western Jets talent manager Luke Williams said of Manton.

It's pretty good consistency to only be held goalless twice in the season. I'd prefer that than someone who kicks 5 then hardly sees it the next 4 weeks then kicks 5 again. If he kicks 1.5 goals a game while still building the rest of his game he's worth his spot in the team, in fact it's where I think Silvagni was a few weeks back. A goal or so a game and pressure was about all that kept him in the team, now he's seemingly worked out the rest of it and his having a real impact.

Confirming Carlton have spoken to Archi Manton. We aren’t the only clubs - there have been another 3.

I’m assuming clubs are just doing their due dilligence at this time of year with many young players and plenty could change between now and the draft. But there’s definitely interest there.

I know it isn’t technically the right thread but for those in the know, how is Wild from the NGA coming along? He started the season well and there was concerns he was no longer eligible.

Looks like he sat out a couple of weeks after the U18 champs, then resumed 3 weeks ago, played 2 games and had another week off. He may have school footy to contend with as well in his schedule.

Still putting up great numbers.

Not invited to any combines though.

Is he still part of our academy?
