Everyone has a story about Visentini’s aggression on the footy field. Even at training, he brings that unflinching attack.


Forwards coach Danny Byrne remembers several sessions where he was “almost punching on in the goal square” with teammate Ben Andrews during match simulation.


“When he’s challenged physically, he gets in that mode and is really hard to stop,” Byrne said.

Vincentini on Frampton in the SANFL showdown could be fun.

Do you know much about him and his potential as an AFL player in the future. Love what they report about his aggression but doesn't really say much else about him in terms of rucking.
I know next to nothing about him. Only saw 1 game he played this year and don't have any notes on him. His profile reads alright though.

Interesting to see that it mentions he is capable of playing a key position role across the ground. Perhaps he could be developed into a key defender.

At 201 cm he would be a good size down back but slightly unders for a ruckman.

Riley Beveridge said he is 1 of 8 from the Vic U/12 team of 2015 that was drafted this year. That's the first think I learned about him after being told he was a ruckman.

A guy that may cause a punch on at training once in a while is important hopefully a Frampton upgrade.

Watching his Highlights I don’t really see the comparison to Ladhams. Dente looks far more physical, Ladhams is more of a accumulator and athletic ruckman. Dente looks like a grunt tap utility
