Good Pick must have got word another club was going to take him so we had to use the Pre Season draft instead of the rookie draft.

Does that mean he automatically gets a 2 year deal instead of a a one year rookie deal?

Must have, I thought it might have been because we wanted Ned Long as well, round out with another genuine big bodied mid, but alas I suspect we were concerned Collingwood or Essendon (in PSD) may have grabbed him.

The time spent in the gym provided the opportunity to work through the complications of Osgood-Schlatter syndrome, a growth injury developed in teenage years causing pain and swelling around the knee.

“It came on around year six, and it would be an aching pain after I’d run or if I’d jump on it,” he said. “Getting into the under 13/14/15/16s, that’s when it really became a problem where I wouldn’t be able to train most nights at footy, and by the third quarter I would be sore, struggling to run.

“It’s not a really horrible injury that will do much damage but it’s just an injury that’s hard to fix.
