Rookie Draft pick #6 – Jarvis Pina

DOB:
30/10/2000
POSITION: Small defender
HEIGHT: 178cm
WEIGHT: 72kg
DRAFTED FROM: Peel Thunder


Jarvis Pina is a rebounding defender from Peel Thunder.

He has impressive speed and agility and his ability to break the lines coming out of defence is terrific.

He had a really strong year at Colts level where he ranked elite for ranking points (120), disposals (21.8), marks (5.5), tackles (4.6) and score involvements (4.4).

He was rewarded with state selection at the National Carnival and was a part of WA's leadership group.

He also played four WAFL League games and acquitted himself really well at that level.

Pina attended the WA State Combine, where he impressed with a 21.4 Yo-Yo.

#2 small defender in the draft behind Budarick on the AFL's ratings

Have liked him for a while, he gets plenty of the pill and has really good rebound ability. Next season, I'd love to see him work even harder on the defensive side of his game and on keeping dynamite AFL-level small forwards accountable while hurting them on the counter (we have plenty of them for him to train with). If he can do it, he's the first player we've had with that ability since Roger Hayden. Backing him in to slog his guts out in the pre-season.

Welcome Jarvis!

Sharks. Anyone playing West Coast.
This has got to be one of my favourite picks of our draft haul. Pina is such a clever player and so balanced. He reminds me a bit of Caleb Daniel in that respect, just such a high footy IQ. Stoked.

Wow. Beautiful leg on him & has some acceleration & evasive skills.
Seems like everyone we drafted can kick well & has good basic football skills. Really like where this is going.

Agree, there is certainly a common denominator/pattern amongst our draftees and in some cases it is both speed and skill

Our first four picks can also kick left and right really well. Young the best non preferred kick for a while.
