This is what I want from the draft. Nasiah Wanganeen-Milera at 12 then Jase Burgoyne father-son, then Tex Wanganeen with a late pick.
Dont worry about form, or videos or if they have played any football recently. Get these boys in and the magic will happen.

I could probably find some more with famous last names in the phonebook, solid recruiting strategy.

Didn't Essendon put a lot of effort into getting Tex including assisting with his schooling in Victoria?
Its odd. I'm sure Tex was at PAC (almost definitely on a scholarship) up to year 10.
PAC has pushed out as many AFL recruits over the last 5-10 years as anyone. Its odd that Gavin has pushed him down this path. Maybe Mike Sheahan was right?

Tex apparently wanted to live/spend more time with his mother and her parents who all live in Melbourne. Wangas remarried in 2012. Essendon have been watching Tex closely for years, and I think they organised the Aboriginal student scholarship with Xavier College, and they pump out more draftees than PAC.

He has been in the JHA at Essendon and Gavin is moving to Melbourne so I thought it would be a foregone conclusion that we would pick him up especially with us having an interest in Nasiah and also having the Davey twins next year. I’m guessing both clubs are probably looking at taking him as a rookie and not at the main draft?
I hope we don’t botch this one, I’d rather put Tex on the list than some of the other spuds we have kept for years

I don't think Gav will move to Melbourne if he is head coach of this mob in 2022. Pauly V helped set up the Tjindu Foundation. This is what Gav was talking about at the start and end of interview with 5AA this arvo.

The footy stuff is run in conjunction with James Podsiadly's AFL Max.

Pretty sure the family expectation is Tex being rookied by the Bombers.
If not we might want to have a chat with the Bombers about their plans with their last pick before we use our last?

Would we be looking at Tex Wanganeen for even a second if he wasn't the son of a gun?

The father son pick shouldn't really be for someone who we have to beg to come here. It'd be totally different if he was a top 10 pick and we could use the FS rule as a tool to get a star here but a potential rookie lister doesn't fill me with excitement.

Be nice to get a Daicos type hyped F/S rather than seeming to get the 'live in hope' F/S types.

We wouldn’t on form but being gavins son with a footy in his hand since he was born is a pretty big factor. If he has the body capable of playing afl then I would take a chance on him. We only have late picks anyway we’re not going to find anyone with more potential. He is a potential Gavin wanganeen ffs they don’t grow on trees.

I bet Sheedy is agitating for Tex to be picked for 'romantic' reasons, while Dodo may be swayed if he thinks he can screw PAFC a couple of years down the line.

I don't want us to pick him up because he is a wanganeen... But if the scouts think there is something in him and he could one day be good enough... That's fine by me.

Guess we will know by 17th November about Tex. That date is key for a lot of things.
