Yes you saved this players career and possily his life.

If Saints didnt pick him up, He might of ended up like most south Aussies spending most of the day smoking marijuana and Drinking West end beer. lol
He will be indebted to us for life.

Loved what I saw of him last night, both at the ground and then on the TV. Just attacks the contest with such energy and his kicking was damn impressive as well.

Looks like it will be him v Carlisle for a spot in R1.

Jamarra Ugle-Hagan kicked 2 goals in the VFL practice match vs. Box Hill. Showed a great leap and threw him slim frame around. However Beveridge recently flagged endurance issues with Marra which puts a debut any time soon in doubt. He also just needs to clean up a few things with timing and disposal. Might take longer than most no. 1 picks but it's hard to say before the VFL season starts.

Dominic Bedendo shows some similar signs as JUH. He's got a great leap and took a very nice pack mark in the forward pocket. Unfortunately went off early with an ankle complaint. Haven't heard anything since so hopefully just a precaution.

Lachie McNeil is the surprise from this group. Being a year older and having played SANFL in 2020 has him looking AFL ready. Easton Wood said he had clocked the fastest time during the preseason at around 35km/h. Not only fast but good endurance to cover the ground for all four quarters. Kicked 1 in the practice match against Hawthorn and was involved in a couple of other goals at half forward. Big chance for a round 1 debut.

Pretty damned happy with Campbell, McDonald and Gulden.

Campbell and Gulden should be in the team in 2 weeks time on pure output, Campbell showing amazing kicking ability and Gulden having a huge amount of footy smarts.

McDonald might not be best 22 yet but he could be in the team pretty early as well as he didn't look out of place today, and having him in the forward line improved our forward structure a lot.

Powell's 15 disposals in his first half was a big positive from Saturday

Spicer and Phillips showed good signs in the last quarter

Powell had 16 touches in a half playing much of it at half forward.

He had 17 in a half against the Saints the week before.

Fair to say his ball winning ability is going to translate to AFL level.

Harry Sharp has impressed the coaches and training watchers.

Certainly much further ahead of where many expected him to be. Much better kick than advertised, elite runner as you’d expect, and puts his body on the line, so not a typical soft outside type.

2 weeks off being in this years draft, and finishing year 12, so the club is taking a slow approach.

Nik Cox debuting.
Not sure if he'll slide back to cover the loss of our KPD's or we stick with him as a tall, athletic winger.

Perkins doesn't sound far off.
Doubt we take him to AO for the game v Port
Maybe rd 3 v Saints.
