Good on him. I love that he has learnt from his mistakes and is having a red hot crack! go for it mate! he has some serious talent and should be really proud of how he has turned his life around. I cannot wait to see Marlion play. just one thing left to do and that is to pick a nickname!

Not having missed 12w of footy , he d be a long shot of playing seniors , more likely he ll play ok and show signs that we can look forward to him playing 2020 . Good luck to him
Do not agree. He has an injury to his index finger so they can still get the miles and training into him to hit the ground running.
Just needs to regain his touch and he’ll be a gem imo

Just how good was this bloke in the WAFL? Tim Kelly good? Why hasn't Freo or Eagles drafted him in the last couple seasons if he's that good?

Any word on how he is fitting in? Would be a great story if he could break into the senior team before the season finishes to give him a taste of what he can look forward to if he decides to hang around.

He has been to jail, it’s a massive red flag. I think Dayle Garlett has scared a lot of clubs off and that’s probably evidenced by the fact Sydney Stack went undrafted. There’s a rumour going round that Hawthorn players take the piss out of duds they have drafted in the past but Dayle Garlett is completely off limits, and not because he wasn’t talented. I think they got a first hand insight into how troubled that kid actually was.

I also think recruiters have underestimated the talent going round in the WAFL. Tim Kelly went undrafted for a while then Geelong finally took a punt on him and he turned out to be a star. Once Kelly left, Pickett was shifted midfield and was dominant. He’s also a bit older than Kelly so that probably rules out a lot of rebuilding teams.

I wish we pulled the trigger earlier on him instead of drafting a vanilla VFL small forward like Jake Aarts.
