Bring him in right away to play on Jamie Cripps or Flyin' Ryan.
I’d say no but not against it...

Think just about everyone on here has bemoaned our inability to lock down oppo small forwards for what feels like an eternity, let’s hope we might’ve finally addressed this

Hope he gets his opportunity soon and grabs it. Best of luck, Jordan...

I haven't been able to find his height but my understanding is hee is more mid size than small, excellent pace and disposal by foot. Played as a mid at Spotswood, and previously a forward at VFL level, this year being tried down back to good effect.

So all the hard work has been done for us then.

:think: :p

My thorough armchair recruiting, which involved watching 2mins of highlights, suggests the kid can play.

Has a good kicking action, penetrating kick, composed running style, decent pace, degree of physicality and purpose to his actions. Definitely not the worst pick.

As has been stated above, at a minimum he improves our 2s.

Welcome Boyd.

Bit reminiscent of Jayden Short, or (dare I say it) Zach Tuohy...?

Definitely has been playing off the half back flank.

Looks pretty similar to Ramsay, was hoping he'd be a wingman but still looks great in his tape off the HBF.

Welcome Jordan!
Dylan Buckley sans foot/ankle issues, so he actually nails his passes.

Spitting image of how he played the game, maybe a hair less pace and agility, but the same read and intent.

This is a very astute pick.
