He went to our local high school Rowville SC as did Connor McDonald , soligo and Krueger , nothing at all to be concerned about , as I mentioned previous RFC is perfect environment for him . Let the kid play footy


Another Rowville person?

Gee I may've seen you out and about.

Was a little bit concerned about his attitude showing in the family vid when RFC picked him...his mate who also got picked on the night was all about how matey they were together...only thing was Sonsie was stoney faced about it...little bit disconcerting in my book...
Hope it's nothing. .
Humour me with Dusty’s reaction when he was drafted ,

I would suggest that was just pure embarrassment more than anything, it was a complete stuff up from the Fox broadcast.

His good mate who's joining him for draft night has been picked before him, Fox didn't do an interview with him like pretty much every other player selected before him and when they asked who it was he had to inform them it was Connor MacDonald. I would have been mortified.

Agree, it was like being hijacked and the kid didn't quite know what to think - all good - he's young and is now today's fish and chip wrapping!

You're getting carried away. Before Ward are you kidding? I'm not doubting Sonsie could be a gun but Ward was the most progressive player going around. Ward was averaging over 30 possessions and was a very good user also. Time will tell who ends up better but you'd be mad to select Sonsie over Ward if given a selection between the two now.

progressive?

WTF does that mean?

If you a plodding battling low impact B grade ceiling midfielder I would agree with you

Sonsie is an immature kid, with a questionable attitude with an A+ ceiling

Ward will never be an A grader, unless you rate Kane Lambert an A grader, that is best case scenario for Ward .

Sonsie at his best will be the best player taken in the 2021 draft

I dunno about best from the draft but I agree. I think tiger fans will be realising pretty quickly how good this kid is come practise matches. He’s going to be a top line midfielder at his peak.

Nothing official but he finished year 12 last year and apparently struggled for motivation during lockdown.

Everyone can probably relate to that. I bet being drafted by your fav club and a pre season with Dusty and Cotch will fix that up.
yep lockdown is bad enuff,lockdown in Roweville tho,that'd be next level :tearsofjoy: :tearsofjoy: :tearsofjoy:
ok :fire::fire::fire::fire::fire::fire::fire: away:mouse::mouse::mouse:

When they have a 'resting face,' that is, the sort of face one has when neither excited, happy or angry/annoyed, you can't tell if they're happy or not.

Same with Caleb Poulter.
Are they footballers?
