Its funny... out of all the players we have picked up tonight and these two guys..

Its Tariek that I am excited the most about.

There has been such a cloud hanging over his game this year with his effort questioned and most of the criticism was probably well warranted...

Can the club turn it around and help him make the required changes he needs to?..

Because if they can, with his speed, talent and x factor.. he could easily become anything and possibly the best pick up out of all the players we got today..

I really hope Nicksy and the new team can help the kid make the necessary changes. Given they have taken him on I think they know they can.

Agreed. Been a lot of talk about what he didn't do well this year. He's now on our list, he's a cat b rookie, we develop him.

Let's get excited, expectations will rise, let's keep an eye on his areas that need improving but plenty to be excited about here.

I happy both got through. Newchurch could be anything (and that anything extends to lighting it up for North Adelaide in 5 years) and Borlace looks like a solid player.

Its also nice to go through with a fully stocked list.
