A while off yet and probably a big call but has the potential to be better than darling his contested marking is a thing of beauty
Agree but you can't have them all! Had Kelly still been available at our 3rd pick then I'm sure the Club would have snaffled him up no matter how much Geelong supporters like to say we didn't value him so we can now suck eggs!Oscar will be a star. Can’t recall being so bullish about a prospect before, but this guy seems to have it all. It was a shame we couldn’t get Kelly in last years draft, but I don’t think we’ll regret taking this guy at all.
Was head boy at his high school so he’s no dummy.And how good is he in the media? Was super impressed with his performance in the post-game interview in the room by the two dolts from Ch7.
Maybe it's because he is new and hasn't had to answer the same question a 100 times, but he just comes across as someone so humble. You could feel his excitement and disbelief at just having played at the 'G for the first time and to get the win.
Was effusive in his praise for the quality of talls (offensive and defensive) that he is learning so much from.
No stammering and stuttering. Can string a full sentence together without too many cliches and gives a bit of insight.
Also...I just love his goal celebrations. Nothing over the top, but that grin and a bit of a fist pump says so much.

I'd be extremely interested in these times if you have them.3.07 is pretty quick for a KPF, plus recorded times have gone down since they started using the new floating floorboard setup and measuring equipment.
Just look at Petch's best recorded time, taken during his stint as a basketballer v his Draft Camp time.
Petch's best official time was 2.78s, recorded during his time as a basketballer, though he has run faster unofficially.I'd be extremely interested in these times if you have them.
In n Allen for Rising star at 51-1. Has started really well.
Love the way he takes the ball cleanly and he seems to have excellent judgement, but I think he's a bit short to be that #1 KPP.JK 2.0 locked in. Loving the way this kid goes about it.
Pavlich seemed to go alright as number one KPF.Love the way he takes the ball cleanly and he seems to have excellent judgement, but I think he's a bit short to be that #1 KPP.
I can see a 2021 forward setup including Brander, Darling and OAllen. Sounds pretty good to me.
I see these guys (and the way WC set up their tall forwards) as the prototype forward line of the now/future. Big guys that on the surface may look like we play too tall, but are all mobile, strong and able to apply forward pressure as well as mark and kick.
And we finally have a few good small forwards, something we haven't had since Phil Matera.
These times are backed up by the fact that Mark Hutchings is actually faster than Petruccelle at football, but when they play basketball Petruccelle is much faster.Petch's best official time was 2.78s, recorded during his time as a basketballer, though he has run faster unofficially.
His AFL combine time was 2.87s.
