With a higher vertical than Nic Nat?

Those party pies must have been baked by Dank
I think the pie habbit started after he tested at the combine. He tipped the scales at around 90kgs at one point but has gotten himself down to 80 odd now.

And after he was overlooked

I can’t see what relevance his post football habits have on things

Do you know or have a theory on why he was overlooked?
If we track backwards...

* Conditioning was magnificent
* Apparently has high footy IQ and talent I.e. knows how to play, not just athlete
*doesnt lack for pressure and defensiveness

Clubs got interested when he showed commitment and discipline at Sturt, despite there being little evidence going by his testing that he was anything but a physical specimen and a half

Let’s just say I wonder if a white player would’ve been overlooked in those circumstances?

But obviously I don’t know

Do we have a team rule that midfield type players don't leap until their third year on the list? Milera started to show signs of having a good leap last year, had a crack a few times. Never seen gooch even look like getting off the ground! Hopefully Jones and McAdam start a lot sooner than is normal.

At least Doedee started early, although he was a few seasons in anyway...and isn't a mid player.

On Rory Sloane: "Competitive defender who can also play in the midfield or forward. Wins his own ball, is strong overhead and is excellent in one-on-one situations. Vic Metro U18 representative in 2008 and won the Eastern Ranges Best and Fairest and the TAC Cup Coaches Award. His endurance featured at the NAB AFL Draft Camp where he ranked second in the beep test (14.5) and sixth in the 3km test. His 2.98secs for 20m also showed his all-round athletic excellence. From Upwey-Tecoma FC." See #23 by jo172 at https://www.bigfooty.com/forum/threads/nd-pick-44-rory-sloane-discussion.521433/page-2

they should redo the 20m sprint at the end of the beep test, that way we'd get a good understanding of how quick they're likely to look when playing AFL!

You're calling it now? Two games with 30+ possessions and 3+ goals in the SANFL suggests he has some talent.

Only because Im pissed we didn't get that guy that was a SA lad taken at pick 53 in the same draft, he seems to have achieved soooooooooo much more

His AFL achievements are a premiership? Perhaps we should draft Clay Sampson then...

AS opposed to Myles extensive achievements of 2 games and achieving nothing as a junior

That GF in itself was amazing for him booting 3 and putting Sloane in his back pocket, but forget the larke medal AA or captaining SA every year

MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM

It is what it is, hes part of a list that doesn't look like making finals for a few years wouldn't you say?

Woohoo Larke medal. It's a great achievement, but doesn't mean they're suited to AFL football .

Sometimes the Heismann trophy winner is drafted 1 overall, sometimes they're not drafted. Because juniors is not the same as professional sport.

Some people say you can set your watch to the opposite of whatever Marty says.

I disagree. I don’t think you can set your watch to the opposite of whatever Marty says.

In this case as things stand Graham is miles ahead of Poholke. Anything is still possible but any rational person would have to say the odds are well in favour of Graham having the much better career.

Even allowing for Poholke’s pretty good pace.
