Looks like a very promising kid! Great size.
Is it pronounced like freesia the flower or like Frasier? Commentators in his highlights have gone with both.

Free jah is the pronunciation I reckon.

I thought Frayah...poor kid, as long as he knows who he is!

Checked with former fellow and current students today, it's closest to freesia like the flower. At least that was the pronunciation by him, teachers and friends at school the last 2 years.

Edit: haha, also just spoke to a teacher who made it sound like freesia, but it's closer to Frasier according to the young man himself. Good to know his school had no idea either!

Hopefully he will be making such an impact, that the commentators will correctly name him numerous times, and we will all be in the know... Mind you, how many times have we heard the 'commentators' butcher somebody's name 🙄

Good move shifting in with Libba. Might get invited over to Nonnas place for an Italian feast. God bless her.
He looks like he needs to improve his tackling and physical work so hope he follows Libba around at training too.

Really excited about this one, he has a hell of a build for an 18yo winger - not just height but already solid & not far off his playing weight at 88kg. Just looks like a broad build too, he’s going to be huge.

Get the feeling we were genuinely stoked to get him too. Might turn out a blessing we missed on Lual which would have wiped out this pick and who knows if he would have gone before our next.
