David Hale coaches 1 game for us, and the take away from his press conference was that our skills are terrible but SPP is somehow part of the solution to our list problems? - I hope not.

Go to the Eagles, they can easily afford to carry a butcher as most of their players can kick.

Loves a 40 meter up-and-under snap kick out of congestion to the opposition's well set-up defence.

Needs a LOT of work. Figure he's worth persisting with at Port because of other strengths, but really a club would only want him for peanuts at the trade table and Port would be at least asking for his draft value I reckon (around pick 18) which is way too much in my opinion.

I got the impression he would be heading to Victoria, not WA, if he moves. You'd think Essendon would be interested. I reckon StK came up a few months ago but I don't know how they can get him in with 10 other players on their radar.

Doesnt he have serious off-field concerns? GC hasnt exactly been a great place for players with extensive extra-curricular activites...
He has a questionable friend circle I believe, but from all accounts has a good attitude and has just been dealing with family/personal problems this year. GC need mature bodies, and I think they could offer him enough $$ to get him up there. Plus i think Dew and Evans have turned around that party boy culture up there.

I guess the Catch 22 is he would be vastly in front development wise if he was at any club other than ours. So he would need to be De-Hinkley’d which will be a process. But I think it’s well worth it.....he has huge upside

Couldn't disagree more. He's incredibly undisciplined on and off the field, which does not bode well for a Suns team trying to learn good habits to set up a positive future.
Yeah I probably meant more in terms of the type of player, but yeah ur right, probably not the role model they need. Maybe getting traded could be the kick up the arse he needs
