Well placed on our quest for a 'Hundy Jacks'Leads well and is a good kick for a tall, but will need to keep growing however to hold down a key forward position at the next level against the new generation of AFL defenders.
Looks like he gets involved quite a bit for a tall forward, could potentially develop as a Gunston type that could prove a handful to defend against.
95kg already as well - going to become a unit after a few preseasons.
Probably will start to come into the side as the third tall up forward in 2023 after Kennedy has retired.
Either way, his recruitment asks questions over the future of Waterman (is he about to be repurposed to the Brander role?)
Welcome to the Eagles.
We now have x4 Jacks on our list - the sponsors will be happy.
I was just noting that about his and Hough's field kicking. Hit them with a really nice trajectory.His field kicking looks good for a ruck/kpf, has a very balanced technique.
and he is 17Welcome aboard Willo. Here's hoping to a successful career playing as a defensive winger in Simmo's system
Don't hate the pick at all, but you'd be open the big fella continues growing or you can put a line straight through the ruck component of his game.
Definitely some "Big ol 'Orse Fraser" vibes, but he seems an intelligent footballer.
Won't be able to bully his opponent at AFL level due to his size like he does in the JNR's.
Liked what i saw of him in the final U18's game vs SA though, he impressed many being the best big man on the ground. At both ends as well.
