Not here til January which is a bit disappointing.
Christmas with the family is huge in Ireland. That’s when most of the Irish living in Australia start to get really homesick. I wouldn’t expect him to be playing seniors for awhile anyway. Looks like a pretty professional kid already. Sure Nash will show him what’s expected until January

Seems to have a cool head, good leg speed and lateral moment as well as good decision making. Looks like a similar type to Glass but an upgrade. Glass was not far away from making it. I reckon O'Hara has to be a chance to debut in 2022. We are accumulating a lot of run outside the draft which has to make Gibcus, Andrew and Rochele possible first picks in the draft.

Hoping he develops into a mix of Tom Mitchell & Dusty Martin, with a touch of Max Gawn & Cyril Rioli.

Let's be honest.

We have know idea what this kid will be.

We know he can run. That's about it.

Fingers crossed, we need a few more rolls of the dice come up. Bramble, Newcome, Reeves, CJ maybe this Irish kid.

Looking forward to seeing him at Box Hill. He's coming from a long way back but It's been done before. I'd like to know the ratio of Irish imports who have played 100 plus games of AFL.

Did you watch the footage? Know's where to run to, direct other players, hits up targets in good positions, is evasive and has good game sense. We just have to translate that to AFL.

I also saw him fumble and put team mates under the pump with poor hand passes. They would have been crunched in AFL.

Good stuff as well, but no one knows if he will make it. Good luck to him, seems a good kid.

Honest scepticism on your part. Have to agree.
He is an athlete who appears to make good decisions. My spy tells me Geelong are crowing about their Irish win but reckons our bloke will be as good.
