    He's 196cm, I doubt he'll grow another 5cm to get over 200.

    A comparison that will excite all crows fans, we have drafted a Shaun McKernan sized FWD/Ruck (if he grows another 2cm).

    I say forget the ruck, these days ruckman need to be 205cm. Develop him as full time forward or back. Don't create another half and half, not great at either.

    Jeez, that could be dangerous if you got a text from your missus after a fight thinking it was makeup time, but it wasn't....

    By the sounds of Hamish, Himmelberg will be groomed to replace Jenkins (198cm) .....there's strong suggestion that at 196cm, Himmelberg will still grow a bit more ......love the pick, sounding like a Tippett type pick ......aggressive Pack Mark :thumbsu:

    Absolutely love that he's aggressive at the packs, and can clunk marks. Is athletic, too. Personally reckon he's more a KPD at this stage, but it sounds like Hamish wants him as a KPF. Another pick that we've pretty much nailed, we needed one KPP prospect at around the 50 mark and we got a good one.

    Minimal height difference. I think I heard somewhere that he is still growing and possibly grown since his height was recorded.

    What really disturbs me about this tweet is that Himmelburg had black hair and now that Jacobs has touched him...boom sauce mop

    Our collection of younger brothers will soon rival our collection of Rorys.

    Harrison was pick 15ish. Elliott pick 51.

    By the draft Harrison is the better prospect.
