Recruits like Jordan Clark, Ed Richards and even Duursma look great in their first year but they are playing much easier positions than a midfield or forward position.It’s difficult to watch some of the selections we could have had running around playing well, when out top pick hasn’t really looked like holding down a spot.
But it’s a long game, just have to be patient.
Gallucci a classic example - taking a while but I think he will add some real class to our midfield as time goes on
No use talking to Sanders bout footy issues, he's the most ignorant person on here.I have and he looks good - I would like him at the crows next year for sure but I don't think he will be there at our Carlton 2nd rounder
Ed Richards first year was last year, and he played 21 games.Recruits like Jordan Clark, Ed Richards and even Duursma look great in their first year but they are playing much easier positions than a midfield or forward position.
Hate to bring him up but Liam Stocker was put into the AFL side as a back pocket and has no opponent half the time being used as switch kick getting easy touches.
If thats their way of developing the kids then thats fine. My point is some draftees get to play much easier positions. Crows will never give such a role to a draftee.
He is in the SA U18 squad - not sure if he is guaranteed a game from there thoughIs Sladojevic the South lad in our NGA program, will we need a 2nd rounder for him? Or likely a late pick?
We have nothing till the 5th round after our 2nd
