We have 15 listed players in that squad and I’d be confident about 3 of them could play a role if called upon. I don’t know what to make of it.
Is a bit thin given that the 15 players includes Daicos and the senior emergencies. Take the positive, that's 15 players we've got developing which should hold us in good stead going forward.

We've loaded up on speculative talls. If you're not in the habit of using early draft picks on talls, you've really got to unbalance the bottom end of your list with a fair few punts that are a long way off.

No I still find it surprising, there's others there you would automatically have before him, and he's been injured just like them and hasn't been back very long either

Tyler can do some freakish things but is very light ATM. I remember his dad was very light when he first started but on some serious size quite quickly, Callum is starting to fill out nicely so i reckon tyler will put on a bit over summer and then watch out next year.

He has some chunky legs. He’ll definitely fill out quickly imo.

Both boys are like junior Gavin’s. (Genes and all that.)

But both throw to their dad look wise, behaviour wise, work ethic wise.
So they have a lot going for them.

Good young men.

Be fun watching them blossom.

They'd know what sort of coverage they want and who is best placed to provide it. He'd be 1 of the few they'd think could be dropped forward, midfield or back

Is he contracted for next year? He'll want to start playing some good vfl footy soon.
Tyler Brown?

Yes he is. Up until end of 2020.
He’s progressing from what I gather, shoulder injury notwithstanding.
I think he’s viewed quite highly.

Has another strong pre-season to further consolidate and we’ll see him and where he stands next season.

Anything this year is a bonus in my view.
Taller than his brother but gee they look alike (which shouldn’t surprise).

Interesting factoid: Gavin Brown is a twin (sister so obviously not identical).

Maybe, but 2 years on the list and still only a solid vfl player. Hopefully there's a big development spike soon.
The kid is progressing fine. He started a long way back and has had some injury issues but the club will be patient.

Personally I think there is more upside to him over his brother or Josh Daicos. He is taller and quicker, although Callum is improving in this area.

Taking far too long to have an impact. All this talk in preseason about improving a lot, hasn't resulted in dominating displays. Package him with Daicos and others and try to get a draft pick for him.

Well seeing as he has been injured for a large chunk of the season that’s a pretty ludicrous call. The kid has a lot of filling out to do but he is only 19. He’s not someone that’s going to go out and get give you 25 touches but with his limited impact he has shown glipses. One to persist with imo.

Fwiw he was the carry over emergency for the weekend so he must be impressing someone.

Look at the poster. Pretty sure he was taking the piss

Wish we got to see him debut this year but it’s looking pretty unlikely at this stage. Excited to see what he’s going to bring near year with another pre season under his belt.
