    Stats don't loom amazing, but looks like a tough little campaigner with plenty of excitement.

    Sorry for the intrusion just wanted to congratulate you guys on picking up young. You know the fox commentators had no idea who he was when they pronounced robert so formally when he is known as robbie young.

    Port adelaide had the pleasure of having him develop for a while in the SANFL and he was a fan favourtie. Regularly outperformed AFL listed players such ad Jake Neade and Karl Amon. Dont worry about the stats he is a low disposal high hurt factor type player.

    We're so incredibly proud he got a chance at AFL level on our board just wanted to wish you guys and Robbie the absolute best i know he will do you proud.

    Looks like an indigenous version of Milney. Imagine if he plays like the great man too!

    For anyone wondering, he only played 5 games for the Port Magpies in 2017 because the SANFL's stupid rules prevent us from playing non-AFL listed players ahead of AFL listed players in the SANFL league side, and we had a charmed injury run all season, so he spent most of the H&A season in the reserves, not because he wasn't good enough to play SANFL seniors but because the rules wouldn't allow us to play him anywhere else.

    He then came back for the SANFL finals and was one of our stronger performers over the 2017 finals series. This year he moved to North Adelaide and helped contribute to their SANFL premiership win.

    Thanks for that, nice to know. We’re all Robert Young who? :D
    Sounds like he could be a very handy pick up.

    I like him, fast, goal hungry tackling machine. At least we will be fun to watch.

    Best wishes to Robbie I think he'll do well he's a better prospect than a number of AFL listed players across the country IMO.

    Congrats on picking up Robbie, have seen him play for the Magpies for a few years, then he went to North Adelaide (the amount Pt Adelaide can pay top up players is pitiful). He is a great guy, have had a few chats with him at the club. He is a quick small forward with some good goal sense. I often thought he outperformed many players on the senior list, was keen for him to get a spot on the main/rookie list. Delighted he has the opportunity to play AFL. Think you might have a sneaky gem here.

    Yep congrats on getting Robbie, I was disappointed when Port didn't rookie him last year after a few good years at SANFL level. He then proceeded to have a ripper year with North and deserves his crack.

    Honestly his biggest weakness is his disposal. It is hit and miss. He is a kick across the body type player and that sorta kicking style and ball drop has always been problematic. Some kicks are outstanding, some are shanks. If his kicking was better he'd already be playing AFL. He has all the tools, speed, pressure, hardness, good mark, goal sneak, etc. He's also been outperforming other AFL listed small forwards for years.

    He will be in your best regularly at VFL level, and I'd be surprised if he didn't crack an AFL game at some stage.

    Really like this guy think will frighten a few backmen with his speed & aggression.

    Suprised hasn’t been given opportunity earlier.

    He has a good highlights reel but we've recruited a SANFL small forward who averages 10 disposals and 1 goal per game. I don't see how he's better than Minch in any way
