Highly athletic, and tries to move the ball forwards as often and as quickly as possible. Has good but not great kicking skills but is very good at weighting his kicks. Has some top tier AFL attributes.

Negatives and why he wasn't on my draft board is that he is very outside and whilst moving the ball forwards as quickly as possible isn't a bad thing it was at a level where I questioned whether or not he was up for the physical side of the game.

These highlights are much better than the one from YT.


Looks slippery, quick and lowers the eyes well / takes a bit off the kicks going into the 50. I really think there’s heaps to work with here as a wing / HF.

Also seems like a ripping character. This offsets missing Cooper Simpson, maybe we saw this guy (as Vic Metro guys can be at times) as a bit underexposed / underrated in this draft class and having great potential. I like this pick

Gonna be tough for him to break into our team on a wing, it'll take some time for him to learn how to stop kicking off both sides and start looking for options backwards and sideways first. Needs to reduce his maximum kicking distance down to about 40m too

In South West Australia born and raised
On the oval was where I spent most of my days
Chillin' out, maxin', relaxin', all cool
And all kickin' some foot-ball outside of the school
When a couple of guys who were up to some good
Started scouting players in my neighborhood
I got in one little draft and my mom got hyped
She said, "You're movin' in with your host family tonight!"
 


The kid is bloody pumped! Great to see that enthusiasm, hope the rest of the squad finds it infectious!


Clearly they thought ROB was going to visit

What a great kid - looks to have the same sort of infectious energy Long has

We’re building a group of kids that can really bond well together
