Okay all - Luke72 has kindly arranged a zoom chat tomorrow with Flynn Perez and the player sponsors. Take your minds off yesterday's loss for a sec, and think of a question for our young future superstar! I'm already going to ask him if he'll wear the long sleeves when he makes the team (if I can figure out Zoom!), so that IMPORTANT one is taken.

All in here, if there's a question you would like asked...:think::footy:

The obvious when’s he back in full training?

Then some inside knowledge stuff
Whose the best trainer at the club?
Who does he look up to the most at the club?
Any lads he played against last year who are draft eligible this year that he would want north to take?

Is he growing his hair back?

Those are great questions! I'm curious too as to who he looks up to most. Was thinking of asking that.

The one question I'd really like answered is "Where does the club see you playing your best footy?"...

The glaring hole in our list from my perspective is a good user off Half Back. I was absolutely shocked that we didn't take one with one of our 3x 2nd round picks in 2019. Is Flynn being groomed as a HB distributor or more as a wingman.

If this hasn’t happened yet, few more
Who is he closest to at the club?
Who lifts the least?
Pound for pound who is the strongest?
His goals for the rest of the year?

sorry the Z., just missed you on these. I don't think anyone asked about his (or anyone else's) strength, but he did say that he thought L Mac was the funniest guy at the club, and that he enjoyed hanging out with him a fair bit. Also, that Jasper is his best mentor! :heart:

Also, the player he compares himself most to is Jason Johanissen, which I thought was pretty awesome. He says he's not quite as fast, but he's got some good burst speed.

Rehab is going well, he's pleased with his progress. I think he said he hoped to be back out there at the end of the season, but who knows - I mean, define "season" at this point.

Coping okay with the whole Covid thing - wishes he didn't have to be isolated so much, but he's got a very level-headed attitude about it all - it just is what it is sort of thing.

Best takeaway - Larkey's nick name for him is "Rezidue" !! Love it.


(oh, and BFAAK - Richmond. Bloody hell. I guess we'll just have to overlook it. On the upside, he says he's definitely a Kanga now, from the second he joined!)

Brilliant Sopwiths North ....Thanks for the update...
Rez is a great nickname for him. Easy.
really excited about what this kid could bring. His skills, particularly kicking, look sensational in the limited vids of him.

Back at the end of the season?

He did his ACL very early last year, that would essentially be 2 years out of the game.

Has he had a setback of some kind?

From memory he mentioned there was some soreness on the knee when he started to ramp up his training so they backed him off for a while.

There's no rush with this kid. He's 18 with an enormous 10 + years ahead if we look after him now.

Sorry I missed this thread. I think he said he wasn’t far off fully training but it’s kind of 4 weeks to build enough fitness to be available for the scratch matches and then trying to break into the team after that.

He will play off the half back which is what he did as a junior. He is more of a line breaking play maker than an aerialist but is hoping Jasper will help him improve that part of his game. He did say he was pretty good defensively too.

Jack Mahoney gets called Wayne Rooney which is pretty funny.

Was hoping that if he had to go to a hub it’s somewhere warm. If it was a short term thing they probably take 30 players but if it’s longer term then probably the whole squad go.

He is not planning on growing the hair back as it’s less of a distraction when playing (good man!)

Arguably the greatest non football thread ever posted on this forum.

Tell Flynn that half of these joints have shut down, so we'll be having 2 x pots in each pub.
