Hately not once in any of his games for GWS has been played in his best role, he's a big bodied inside midfielder, the role he lit up the SANFL U18's and the role he played so well for SA at the Nationals....and unlike Macrae, Powell and Poulter who have played only at the U18 level Hately played extremely well at SANFL League level after the Nationals.I really don’t understand why we would be so keen on Hately. We apparently had no interest 2 years ago, passed on him in the draft and he has had 2 very underwhelming seasons since. With midfielders like Finn Macrae, Tom Powell And Caleb Poulter likely to be available to us in the 15 - 25 band where we should have several picks then I just don’t see the value for us.
Edit : And most likely unlike Macrae, Poulter and Powell he's a plug and play from round 1 2021.
