Sure was. Started in goal but moved to centre back for a couple years I think before he switched to footy.

Thank god we've got him, bloke is a freak
Sounds like the perfect preparation as far as playing soccer goes. Good with ball in hand and using to running around the midfield.

Be nice to see some diving smothers from him as well.

"Having acquired Brendon Goddard in 2012, James Gwilt in 2014 and Matthew Leuenberger a year later, the Bombers can lay claim to being free agency's most successful team to date."

Hawkes & Dees the biggest losers so far.

That table is meaningless given it includes DFA. I bet those clubs are really devastated to lose blokes to free agency that they've already delisted! Furthermore, not even sure it's accurate, why is Gwilt included as a dfa, but Green was not?
Why is it so hard for a journalist to put forward something meaningful?

Essendon is the only team that hasn’t had a free agent depart, so I guess that’s a good sign.

We also overpaid our best players to get them to re-sign post supplements saga.

Looks like we have gotten through it because of the attrition of the rest of the top end talent on the list due to the supplements saga and the lag period following the rebuilding of the list via the draft.

Not being critical of anything in particular, just highlighting that our "success" with FA is virtually meaningless in the context of the rest of list management.

Frang the most important. Then parish. I think mainly because there would be other clubs targeting them while they're still young and have so much upside. Tippa i couldnt picture going anywhere. He's essendon to the core.

I doubt that we will delist more than one mature KPP who is good depth.

Clarke looms as the most interesting player on that list.

With a squeeze for spots at the end of the year I'd say he starts as a 30/70 chance of staying. That's based on his ability to sort out his kicking.

If he can sort it out, like get it to VFL standard, he could be a really good player with more tricks than the ordinary soldier.
