I must admit, even though it's a rubbish article, and has absolutely nothing to do with the actual sliding doors concept, it's a quick jab at each club (in most cases). I always look to see what he says about the swans, mainly so I can slag him off when he's wrong (which is quite often).

I must say, even though it's uninformed drivel, he's got a good thing going. It's the positive/negative dichotomy that really works with that.

Nah. He's just a knob.

What do you do? hire a secretary to pre read articles so you know you will like them

also many like me probably didn't read it
Can't afford one . I just see who writes the story and i don't read it . If it's someone like Mick McQuane i will , also Terry Wallace , but they're a so called footy journo i won't

Wow can’t say I’ve ever heard of someone playing with a known ACL injury before.

Crazy stuff
It happens a fair bit, Peter Wallace played for 2 years in the NRL with a torn ACL


Naismith has no lateral movement while healthy so he would have been less affected

Swans trained up at Port Douglas today, and Ollie Florent's little brother has been playing for them this year apparently, I guess he wanted to get a season of footy in rather than stay in VIC. Good on him for getting out of his comfort zone.

EDIT - Jai had originally signed with Frankston for 2020, so to move from one end of the country to the other in pursuit of footy shows a lot of desire. He might be worth another look this year via the Rookie draft or the SPP.

From memory Jai trained with the Swannies last year as well. We see him as a late bloomer so every chance he may get a rookie pick

Yeah I remember seeing him in some of the pre-season picks, he was skinny as hell. https://www.afl.com.au/news/148928/family-ties-could-see-another-speed-demon-land-at-swans

I'm really impressed that he moved to Port Douglass for a season of footy. That can't be an easy thing for a 19 year old to do, unless they're playing in the AFL of course, especially with the Florent family history. That can't have been easy to do. That's the sort of dedication that I hope goes rewarded, if not with us, then with some other club.

Apparently the Swans were never going to draft Jai and he knew that, but was invited to train with the club to experience training and playing at the highest level. He's gone back and gained 7kg and is going to continue trying to get drafted.

So he went into it knowing that and put in the effort and then moved to QLD when he couldn't play in VIC? Honestly, this just makes his effort even more impressive. Putting on 7kg, looking at his draft year weight of.......64kg. Wow. Dylan Stephen's draft weight was 69kg.
I'm guessing a year in the QAFL probably won't seriously help him get drafted this year, but it means his development won't have stalled either, he would have had another year to work on his game and the extra experience of living away from home and maturing. Maybe he gets back to the VEAFL next year and performs and gets picked up as a mature age prospect.
I don't have any idea how good he actually is other than the Swans announcement on him last year, but I'm blown away by his hunger and hope that his effort gets rewarded eventually.

The club basically told him and he told those around him. He was under no illusions about his chances but if you have a chance to train with an AFL club, and your brother is there anyway of course you'd take that opportunity. Seems driven and committed like his brother so good luck to him.

Do you know any about his actual ability, is he similar to his brother, or is it a completely different playstyle?
