A summary of Archi's game today:
1st Quarter: poor positioning meant he didn't get to dangerous positions or become an option for his teammates. A poor forward structure for the Jets wasn't helping.

2nd Quarter: the ball hardly found its way inside the Jets F50. Late in the quarter Archi took a good mark about 15m from goal. He proceeded to walk back to the 50m line, strolled into about 35 from goal, had a quick skip (ala Josh Kennedy), stabbed at the ball & kicked it out of bounds on the full, the ball barely carrying the boundary line.

3rd Quarter: positioning was much better, involved in a number of marking contests but couldn't quite clunk them. A nice smother resulted in a quick snap for goal which missed to the left.

4th Quarter: took a nice contested mark out on the Gardiner Stand wing. Took a further mark about 30m out, directly in front of goal. As he was walking in to kick for goal I noticed his left arm was a fair bit higher than his right arm as he was holding onto the ball, not unlike Fev, but the ball drop reflected this unorthodox technique, resulting in the kick missing to the left. Got a free kick in the goal square for high contact & pretty well played on as soon as he got the ball in hand. Clearly his previous missed shots on goal had knocked his confidence. He did kick the goal, so all good. Very late in the quarter he kicked a nice soccer goal.

2.2 & one out of bounds on the full was the sum total of Archi's work, both goals coming in the last quarter when the game was done & dusted. I have noticed in a lot of games this season his goals seem to come late in the game. I'm not sure this actually means anything, but is a definite trend.

One thing I will say that Archi has going for him is that when he gets his body in front his opponent has a hard time shifting him, or spoiling the ball.

Having only changed back to footy this year, I'm of the belief that Archi would probably benefit from another season in the NAB League as an over-age player, or perhaps a spot on the Northern Blues' supplementary list as was the case this year with his brother Oskar & Kye Quirk.

Thanks for the report! Just wish the news was more positive

Great analysis MSR ! Probably the best going round.

Hey guys do we now if any other father sons kids have kicked on besides SOS? Was just checking out this list from when we opened our fathers son academy back in 2015
Oskar and Jake wound up on Northern supplementary lists, Jake wasn't up to the grade unfortunately. Archi is in the mix this year, as mentioned.

Bailey is obviously now with the Saints, but not much chop. Jack & Ben look like great prospects, and Dylan goes alright, and honestly could have been a good player under better development and injury management programs than the ones he copped coming to the club with ankle issues.

Will Hickmott probably would have wound up on the Northern list last season if he wasn't WA-based... aside from Liam Hickmott, I'm not sure any other names have reached under 18s yet?

The system is a joke Chris Johnson's son is in Essendon's academy. Farcical from the AFL once again.
Well the exact same thing happened with Blakey to the Swans. Father played 100+ games with two clubs. But ended up in the Swans academy based on the fact he is from a rugby state :/

The AFL is an amature run competition that's the reality.

So this officially states that Cameron Wild and Sunny Brazier are our 2019 NGA prospects.
Great news!
How did Wild go towards the end of the season, he was progressing ell at the start but then the reports dried up.
I suspect the reason for this is that he stopped getting tagged as 'Cameron Wild' and was instead tagged as 'Cam Wild' by AFL Draft Central. :p

I can't understand how wild qualifies anyway, didn't his dad play for Collingwood?
Not enough games for F/S.

Not sure where your issue lies, Johnson is a part of the Bombers academy based on where he lives.
The issue is this isn't supposed to be zone recruiting.

Officially it's supposed to attract kids, families and communities that wouldn't have found their way into the elite football pathway. Spreading the good word of Aussie Rules so to speak.

I hardly think the son of Chris Johnson needs that kind of encouragement to play AFL.

Unofficially the whole NGA system only exists to stop teams bitching about the Northern States' academies.

Just like everything with the AFL, it's complete horeshit. And everyone knows it's horeshit. And the AFL knows that everyone knows. And everyone knows the AFL knows..... But they just sweep it under the carpet and pretend everything is legit.
