Not if he's drafted by the Gold C*nts and then requests a trade to Hawthorn a couple of years later. I'm hoping like hell that they finish last again so it happens. It really will be the only way we can eventually snag him.
Dean is on the Saints board yeah? If anywhere, he’d be requesting Saints for mine.

Yeah but by all reports Dean Anderson still has close friendships within the HFC. He’s know first and foremost what we can offer that the Saints don’t.

Id be disappointed if he didn’t with the current picks we have, I thought that was his best game so far this year not counting practise matches. Might be the first Sandringham player picked this year which would be a great result considering the talent they have.
Where is he sitting in your top 30 after the first 3 rounds of the season?

I had him in the 20-25 range for round 1 and still sits there, I won’t be making any major changes until im able to see more of the interstate players and if those players have improved/stagnated.

I saw Finn play in his Under 15 year and got to admit I was a little underwhelmed. He has obviously improved. Has anyone on here seen him play recently. What style of mid is he. Inside/outside/hard, honest like his Dad/Speed/Size/Disposal/Reader/Game dense ???????
think Josh Kennedy(Syd) our last f/s, very similar build and play style

he is an inside mid that uses his strength in the contest to get a handball out or break away for a clearance, he doesnt have break away speed, similar to Josh Kennedy, he is tall and solidly built 187cm 80kg, his disposal is good, kicking and handball on point and a good kick at goal, his read of the game is ok, he doesnt read it as well as his other team mate Ryan Byrnes, but he is ok in that regard

one credit he has so far this year is last weekend he played better than some of his draft rivals in a big game against Oakleigh, in fact he outperformed Noah Anderson who has been on a tear so far this season, although Rowell was B.O.G. Finn was best for Sandringham(winning team), so in big games he performed, which is a point in his favour.

P.S. most of his poss are contested so he cops a lot of tackle or chopping of hands while disposing so in case his DE is a little low that might be the cause, but when he has space he has very good skill set.

I would just add to this, in junior footy he has been a ball magnet. So when you say his read of the game is ok, that's not how it played out against oppo teams in lower age football. He would just get it over and over and dispose at high level compared to other 'regular' kids. In this higher grade the step up may have taken him some time to find the confidence to hunt it in the same fashion, but I have a mate who's kid is the same age and played same grade comps and he has always told me how Finn just tears up gameday.
FWIW.

Ando their footy director. That might be changing soon, but he is tied up with the Saints, although I can assure you there remains a lot of the HFC in Dean Anderson.

Thanks so much Davo. Luv ya work. On your report Finn has definitely grown since I last saw him 2-3 seasons ago. Love the comparison to Josh K. That is the exact style we are looking for and might explain a consoling word on Cogs I heard last night. More on that later.

Disappointing to hear that Anderson is a potential #1 draft pick but just misses out on qualifying for F/S status with us. We finally get a really good one and it turns out we don't have him.

He played in the second Vic trial game on Saturday. So did Harry Pepper. Can't find any info on how they went though.

So knowing that we’re not getting Noah Anderson who else would we not want to get him? I don’t think I could handle him going to Sydney or worse Essendon. If Carlton keep on the course their at then he’s looking Adelaide bound.

At least if he goes interstate I think we would be a chance to get him back on day then if his at a Melbourne based club.
