James WORPEL

24-Jan-99 | 185.1cm | 85.5kg | Geelong Falcons

“James’s strength is to win the contested ball and does that better than anyone I’ve coached. He’s just a beast on the inside and is super explosive with repeat efforts. If you get tackled by him – which he’ll lay seven or eight a game – you’ll know about it. Super leader and had all the accolades this year with Vic Country captain and Falcons captain. Just a wonderful person to have around the club.” Geelong Falcons coach Dan O’Keefe.

Need some bulls for the midfield so not unhappy with him as a pick if Wrighty and co. think he's worth it.

I just hope he doesn't become known as "the player we passed up Joel Garner for".

Looks a pretty good pick-up to me. Strong, good in the clutches, takes the game on and not afraid to use the 'don't argue'. Anyone want to shed light on what some of his weaknesses are?

The guys on SEN said the knock on him is his disposal. He's not a bad kick technically but can make bad decisions
