You mean the player who has had two years on the list and played, what, 2 games after being a late pick?

Us having confidence in Stengle developing in a niche role is a vastly different thing to Stengle having any true value whatsoever. If Stengle fails, we lose nothing bar time from this.
You can’t be serious. First off you blow it off as it’s only a fifth rounder, when you find out it’s a fourth rounder then that’s no big deal either. Now handing out 3 year contracts is also no big deal. Richmond wouldn’t trade him apparently unless we improved our fourth round pick, but again that means nothing.

I have serious doubts we will use a late pick next year

We will have 2 picks within 23 and maybe use one more job done

We are slowly building our list with picks from pointy end

Will be interesting to see how this lad develops - I don't think he will play a game of AFL - hope I am wrong.

What do you think would stop him playing a few games for us?
He seems to be a clever goal sneak, and seems also a goid substitute if Betts needs some rest from injury/managed.

Kids as natural a small forward as you will come across and will be mentored by the best.

Maybe a bit more of a competitive SANFL team too!

Whether he’s good enough
Richmond has a plethora of small forwards so would have been hard to break into that side. Mind you we’re starting to accumulate them too so he needs to get fit pretty soon to make his mark before they overtake him.

Do we know he’s not fit?

Played with him for 2/3 years, you wont see many players that get more 'out the back' goals and goals which just seem to fall in his lap but that's his gift, he gets in the right spots and looks alive around ground balls
Any thoughts on his fitness and defensive game?

I’m gonna say we were a little to young to judge the fitness base but you can tell he takes much more serious than he once did. Defensive game is good, tackles well (pretty sure he played rugby in school) and makes defenders nervous!

Because Eddie doesn't like to party?
Maybe in his younger days and he saw the impact on his footy. Eddie has developed into a leader of our Aboriginal players so I cannot see him partying with them nor can I see him not teaching them what they need to do to be the best they can be.

I’m expecting a Menzel type result out of this kid, just much less expensive. Still, I trust the talent ID guys to have seen something worth getting him across for.
I agree with this....like Menzel I think we have recruited him on potential X factor that may well not materialise.
20% chance of being a master stroke, elite player.....80% chance a complete bust IMO
