PORT ADELAIDE has taken Mitchell Georgiades with its second selection in the 2019 NAB AFL Draft.
CLUB: Subiaco



DATE OF BIRTH: 28th September 2001

HEIGHT: 191cm

WEIGHT: 78kg

POSITION: Forward

BIO


Tall forward who has missed the entire season due to a quad injury but has now made a complete recovery. He showed strong promise as a bottom aged player in 2018, representing his state in all four NAB AFL Under-18 Championship matches averaging 10 disposals and four marks. He also gave a glimpse of his outstanding contested marking ability when playing for team Bartel in the 2018 NAB AFL All-Stars Futures game on Toyota AFL Grand Final day. He is a very competitive player overall who reads the game exceptionally well and uses the ball effectively by hand and foot. He is the son of former Western Bulldogs player John Georgiades, who famously kicked eight goals on debut in 1989 against Carlton.

The only thing I know about Mitchell is that his old man John kicked 8 on debut Rd 1 1989 for Footscray v Carlton after transferring from Subiaco. I had just come back from a year in North America and wondered WTF John Georgiadis was as he had never played state footy.

John was a short forward for the 3rd tall behind Beasley and the resting ruck.

Not disappointed to get him, but that was too early. In any case, welcome to the club Mitch - hope you kill it for us!

Very interesting selection. Already reminds me of Mason Shaw/Mitch Harvey but of course, I welcome him to the PAFC and wish all the best for him.

Response to my question on the main board, who the fu** is Mitch Georgiades ?

"If he was 195cm and had played all year he would've been pick 1. Instead he's 191cm and missed the year with a corkie, but he lit up a game at the champs last year as a 17 year old. Great speed and hands on the lead. If Port look to play Dixon as the gorilla and a roaming lead up forward like Marshall or a 2nd ruck then Georgiades could make a really nice lead up option. Some DeGoey ish traits as a forward."

"If he had played all year he would've been pick 1
This I like.

"If he was 195cm he would've been pick 1
But this I don't get. Like, if I was 18 and played like Buddy Franklin mixed with Gary Ablett I'd go at pick 1 too. I'm none of those things though.
