Our track record with Glenelg juniors has been average.

Geez we have a serious love affair with half back flankers at the West Coast Eagles don't we!

That said, as fair as speculative picks go, its not a bad one. Have seen a bit of this kid and I can see the potential

Redden and Rioli played for Glenelg so it's been ok as long as they stay away from Gatorade and weed. Pretty happy to take a chance on him given his pedigree. There are no guarantees but I hope he performs well.
we didn't draft Redden and Rioli wasn't a Glenelg junior.

This is but the beginning of a cunning plan by the Eagles brains trust. Progressively they will recruit an entire backline of players with the surname Edwards. Opposition forward planning will be near impossible as they try and work out in advance and on game day which Edwards is playing where. Ultimately, if one Edwards doesn't get you, another one will.

A midfielder from South Australia named Luke?

You son of a gun, I’m in.
