Ratten is doing a bevo trying to reinvent the game.

Battle was great in 2020(?) as a key back from memory. Think he’s just a victim of his own versatility
I think he is attainable just not seen enough of him to know IF he is capable of being a FB. Ideally we want a FB not a CHB.

Note:
I actually don’t mind the prospect of playing talls that mostly run between the arks, like wingmen. They do provide a good outlet option. As we have both English & Naughton who can do that well, I don’t want Battle for that ability.

Yeah not sure if he’d have the genuine size for FB but definitely fits Bevo’s versatility mantra and would be great in our zone.

Its official now. Bailey Williams re-signs until 2023.
Great news, loving the way our small backs are coming on for the way the games going.

When Croz comes back him, Williams and Docs great long kicks are going to be so damaging in getting us rolling from half back.

"General Manager of List Management and Football Projects, Sam Power, said it was pleasing to have Williams recommit."

We look to have changed Power's 'official title'. It might be a duplication of some roles given the Covid impacts.

Wasn’t Collier-Dawkins a dogs fan growing up? Could be a handy addition for further midfield depth (rather than Hayes or Roarke etc) and could come cheap, seems to have really fallen down the pecking order at the tiges. Waste of what appeared to be a real talent.

With West and Jong playing VFL, and McLean currently out injured, I think we have more than enough midfield depth. I'd hate to go chasing more, and would prefer we focused our efforts on finding ruck and KPD depth

His mum told me who they support, fairly sure it was sydney, though could be remembering wrong. Definitely not the dogs though

Wonder if we can dislodge Robbie Tarrant or Michael Hurley from their clubs

On VOG-L09 using BigFooty.com mobile app
Both are cooked with a capital C my dude.

Although so was Brian Lake when he went to win three flags with the Hawks so wtf do I know. Would prefer Tarrant.
