I dunno.
Can Matt Crouch do this?





The other is a forward/midfield 190cm prototype
That kick on the 2nd clip was perfect to position. Something it seems none of our midfielders can manage...kicking the ball to the advantage of the forward.

The ability to be 30m clear close to goal is underrated
Not in SANFL against Port's 3rd division defence.
Did you see what Jenkins did to it?

There is no way based off that evidence that the kid is anywhere near the talent of the other two names here.

You can only beat who you're playing
Yeh but what did he actually DO?

From that video he managed to find space and finished a couple of goals.
That is literally it.

Not saying that's all he's got but that video evidence shows nothing to say he's a top pick.

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
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.

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
No use talking to Sanders bout footy issues, he's the most ignorant person on here.

I've got taheny at 5 at the moment, I'm a bit bias because he plays for my local team.:p

Ed Richards first year was last year, and he played 21 games.

Is 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

I have watched quite a bit of the under 18s and for me Rowell is easily the number one pick ahead of Anderson and young. In every big game Rowell has been awarded best on ground including exhibition game against vfl side, 2018 tac cup grand final etc. Rowell has explosive pace at stoppages (dare I say similar to dangerfield), very good at clearances,tackles well and spreads well from the contest. My only concern with Rowell would be he just needs to tidy up his kicking as it can be eratic at times.

Noah Anderson I like as he appears to be a mid who kicks goals but like Rowell his kicking needs to improve. He would be my second pick.


I really like Hayden young as well as I think he is the best user of the ball on the draft. I almost like him more than Anderson. I think his precision kicking will be very effective in the modern game. He tends to play more outside but once he spends motte time inside he will be a gem.
