Just because it will not happen does not mean it could not happen:D
Physically I would say he is least likely to play. All the other new draftees looked a good size. Ready to go. The whole AFL career is harder for the less developed players, still growing into their bodies but in the spotlight. RCD seems like it's coming together. Footy skills, his body. Just got to slug it out in the VFL again.

skinny players have got a game before, its possible

can see him slotting next to Grimes, Vlastuin, Astbury, Broad etc.

Yes. It does.

Dude, go back and read what Metoric Rise said a page or so ago. Then, read it again and stop being silly.
Stack was said to be no where near AFL ready and played in R4 or whatever

Garthwaite gets thrown around like a ragdoll and has been give senior chances

I stand by my bet. You want $1000 on Bigoa playing on Patrick Cripps in R1 in the AFL? I'll even extend it as far as Bigoa won't touch Patrick Cripps in an AFL game in 2020.

he probable wont play, so i wont bet on it but there is a chance

JON played

the midget melbourne drafted is said to play round 1 and hes about 50kg. menadue played a game or two when there was nothing of him.

It would be one of the more easy jobs in footy to play back pocket next to Vlastuin, Grimes, Astbury etc. whoever gets a go should do well

Marcel Proust, I love everything about you but the above post you wrote is extremely optimistic
As a guess, no it won't happen this year

So I see the biggy was quietly brought up to Qld along with Edwards. Presumably the club wouldn't have bothered if they didn't think he could play. With the possibility of Chol having to replace Lynch up forward, do we think he is likely to support nank in the ruck? Admittedly I know nothing about him.

Id be surprised. I reckon its more so he can get a feel for what's involved in finals footy prep.

Yeah, I believe he’s not even at full fitness with his shoulder. If you look at all of the footage from the hub he wasn’t involved with and of the physical training.

I would’ve thought it’s the clubs way of ensuring he feels apart of the team and getting him involved with the squad.

It’s what they’ve done with Noah Cumberland who’s recovering from an ACL, he won’t play this year but the club has still flown him up to the hub.

They're bringing all the players up for the premiership celebrations
