Great to hear the Dixon is back at full training.
Hopefully he can get back to the form he was showing before his injury and pushing his way into the team.
A few more big bags of goals in the wafl should do the trick.... no pressure

Quality young man. Met him at a game function. Spoke well, big guy for an 18 yo but still looked like a kid (ala Darcy) plenty of strength/ growth next few years. He was still progressing and keen to get going and make his mark second half of season.

Looking forward to seeing him later in the year hopefully.

Bit sad that our line of Tassy players in recent years (AP, Dixon, Grey) who hopefully have less go home factor than Vic kids will end soon with North having first dibs.

I’d bid on Tarryn Thomas with our first pick.
If he keeps tracking like he is a the moment North are going to get a top 10 pick for a 3rd rounder? Is that how the points work?
I agree

He's playing such good footy at the moment. If North match then they will pay far closer to what he's worth than later in the draft. Having said that I'd only bid if he's the best available at our pick otherwise I'd chose actual best available.

I'm not 100% with the whole bidding system

You'd only bid on any player if they are the player you want. North could very well be happy with another player at pick 10 (Hill for example). No point bluffing.

I wouldn't be bluffing. He looks an absolute gun. Mind you so do a few other players at the moment.

No excuses but to absolutely nail the first pick

Nah he will get market value. If freo rate him as top 5 on their board and is available they will bid for sure.

Well if he's the guy they want, they should bid.

For North, they could be in a trading situation where they want to get their first pick ahead of where realistically bids may come for him.

Probably. But I think clubs more have a draft range where player ratings may overlap than a strict hierarchy.

Great to hear both Hugh and Sean are making progress at training and not too far away from being back at full training and Peel.



Strongly recommend anyone interested goes to either training or Peel game when Hugh is back - he's looked impressive every time I've watched him. He's nowhere near the full package for a KPF yet but you get the glimpses of what he can become. Still think he will quickly become the best leading target we have on our list. We may joke about having nothing but contested markers in our f50 but if we are going to be competitive in future years we need some strong leading targets and force our mids to start lowering their eyes. It's why I've also been keen on O'Reilly - because he is an exceptional leading target. These guys are who we need playing the role McCarthy has been playing, so he can get back to doing what he is good at.

I still remember him kicking 6 in a practice match the start of this season, may have been playing AFL by now.

The service at Peel has gone downhill since then so hopefully when he gets back we also get some players who can deliver it to him.

We’ll know more over the next month of u18 championship games. SA at Alberton this Sunday I think. On Foxfooty??
No, not this game. Late June they will televise live on Fox. Get to see WA vs Vic Country and WA vs Allies. plus later rounds of other teams. Might be on Youtube later.

Wish I had Fox

Very interested with the SA guys. Probably because them and Tassie boys seem to fit in well at Freo.
Not sure if you know but if you have broadband you can stream by the month for $44.00. Come and go as you please. I'm going back on mid June for the under 18's and the cricket in England. Aust vs Eng.

You could use the foxtel go login details of a friend with foxtel to stream the content at your place.

Or they could stream the content when they are at your place with their foxtel go details.

Whichever way you want to justify it.
