Barty returns; Serena no threat? Osaka to exit early?
ThisNot 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
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 close8 disposals and only 2 more than Garth from the middle is underwhelming in anyones language.
An old guru quote from my uncle guru ranjit eopleCan’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?An old guru quote from my uncle guru ranjit eople

Others see what has yet to be seen and look to see more"
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!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
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.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.
