Between Jai Newcombe and Blankety Blanck, you could not have asked for a better outcome from the MSD over the past 2 seasons. Neither have skipped a beat. Next best thing to Sydney's Gift Horse Academy.

Typical Hawthorn - Rorting the system by picking blokes that had been overlooked/rejected by every other club already.

And the Swans get direct, discounted access to these chumps.

Ours have all been available to every club, over mulitple drafts

So impressed with Blanck and how hard is at every contest. Goes 100% at everything and only played 6 games vs arguably the best moving forward in the game (cannot kick to save himself though).

He will take a huge amount away from that and will go up a new level.

Imagine how he (& the intercept crew) will go when we can break even in the midfield & apply defensive pressure to opposition midfields?

Is our backline set? I'm not sure we need to draft any more defenders now, just time and patience eh?

Blanck, DGB, Sicily, Scrimshaw, Hardwick, Morris, CJ, Impey, Day and Frost has us set for the short term and long-term - provided Blanck and DGB develop into the players they promise to be.

They'll definitely be testing out an opposition forward line's ability and desire to chase - every single one of them can attack and use it pretty much - Blanck no exception.
