Hopefully they stream (or even put on YouTube) the scratch matches they play in hubs.It’s a shame we won’t see Burgman in the SANFL this year but I’m far from concerned about his development at this stage. He was drafted for his athleticism and upside and has a relatively late birthday. Give him time.
I think we’ve been a little spoiled with the readiness of our early picks in recent years. Hopefully they broadcast some reserves games.
I thought they were trying to make him a high half forward? Guess that didnt pan out as expected.Just heard Bergman is playing off half back and suiting the role well. Reckon he could end up a replacement for Bonner given his speed and kicking skills if Bonner continues to stagnate.
don’t think I ever saw them suggest they would play him there, just in his draft year played a lot as a hff.
Grant Birchall was pick 14 thanks from us giving Hawks 14 for Motlop trade, as one of two first rounders the Hawks wanted for dumping a doped up Jonathan Hay on North. Lonie was the steak knives in the deal.don’t think I ever saw them suggest they would play him there, just in his draft year played a lot as a hff.
happy to pay pick 14 for a hbf if they’re good enough. I think it’s the best spot to develop him in, has elite tools for the position.
we also are very very light in that department. Especially for guys who can intercept mark at a high level.
Voss stated he still expects him to move back forward at some point in the future, but for now he's doing well in defence. Seems like standard 'learn your craft in defence, then move into the midfield/forward line after a couple years'. No issues here especially if he's playing the role well enough to be in the mix for selection.
I think he’s grown since his was drafted originally he was at 186cm now he’s listed at 189 that’s 1 cm off FyfeI see a smaller version of Fyfe, with his versatility, capabilities above his head, attack at the ball, tackling and evasiveness.
He could be a real gem!
