Clearly has what it takes at AFL level. The problem? He plays for the Bulldogs. He will have to wait for Liberatore to retire before he gets a spot in that midfield.

Can easily see him and Lipinski exploring their opportunities in the off-season. Who would be interested?

I think plenty of teams would be interested in both. West is our natural Libba replacement but I doubt he waits that long.

I can honestly say i have never seen him play a AFL game and not sure how good he is at the level

But surprised he has not been given more games since being drafted to get a good look before trading him

His few opportunities have been as a small forward.

I love Libba, but West can also play a role forward better than he can. I'd have West playing seniors now.
I really want us to keep Rhylee.

West would be best 22 in most teams imo he probably should be Dogs side.
Don't get how they picking Lin Jong over him.

I think Beveridge is one of those coaches that likes to make his young players earn a spot 10x over.

Wouldn't read too much into the Friday game. Awful performance on his behalf but 20 years old, 8th (actual) game, against a side that has won 3 of the last 4 flags and playing a difficult small forward role.

I'd be very interested in North asking the question.
