Not quite right , I recall wacko jacko being very much a project player when he arrived , was a ball magnet , b&f winner in the wash up , Shane tuck overlooked by hawthorn , debuted at Richmond 23yo . RCD has afl qualities that you can’t teach with, his attack on the footy. He’s wet behind the ears , if he has an appetite to want be a good afl player , he ll get there . Interestingly, the next half doz players drafted past rfc have done fa to date

RCD averaged 18 disposals a game in U/18 playing mainly as a forward with occasional runs through the middle. Averaging about the same now as a first year kid playing in the midfield. Don't forget there are others playing through there as well that are just as handy.

8 disposals and only 2 more than Garth from the middle is underwhelming in anyones language.
Do NoT make a call on a first year player 5min into their career that’s armchair nuffy stuff. I made that mistake once thinking Pettifer was destined to be a star after his first game and have probably only made one bad call since ,,,,,when I said the 2017 GF would be close

Can’t believe you lot.
18 year old kid’s played 12 games of professional football and you want to write him off as a dud!!
Our recruiters got it wrong all of a sudden have they?
We’ve got him for another 12 months so pass judgment then.
Talls need more time to develop.

With the greatest respect to your uncle, it sounds like a comparision explaining a real person and, what shall we call it, a fortune teller or a Damien Barrett?

It amazes me how good Towner is at vfl but is so **** at afl.
Hopefully he gets a gig at gc next year if he wants it that is
I reckon he could end up on a list. Have to remember the role he plays with us in the ones is pretty much self sacrificing but that’s what he had to do to get a game here. Pretty sure he’s happy he did!
But I could see him easily play the mid/forward role he plays at VFL Level for quite a few teams.

Our 5 genuine forwards - Lynch, Caddy, Rioli, Bolton, Castagna- have a pathetic 10 disposals between them. Mostly handballs.

Rioli has 2 handballs for the game. How he’s playing ahead of Baker is a disgrace.

It’s because we enter F50 the same way we won a flag, but we don’t have an aerial beast marking it or bringing it to ground in Jack. Can’t kick it to Lynch the same way.
