    Fair enough.

    I think as long as the draft age is so young, recruiters will get a lot wrong.

    Definitely a Jack Watts element to him which is why I was so excited when he collected Aliir Aliir in round 1
    If you kicked five goals and Tom Boyd kicked five goals, Tom Boyd kicked more goals than you.

    He didn’t in the quarter I watched and I haven’t read anywhere that he did.

    Thought I read the team sheet he was at CHB and someone mentioned for he was back in another forum.

For example, without Walker & Jenkins, the similarly hard running 193cm Tom Lynch, who also has neat disposal and good on the inside 50 and accurate when getting shots would not be useful as a first or second forward who is expected to ruck. But with the right mix around him, Adelaide get to focus on his strengthes and are a better side for his place in it. This kid has more than enough going for him to play a similar role, despite facing different sorts of challenges over his career.
    Yep. He's tracking OK. He's not going to be Wayne Carey (or Aaron Naughton) but he will have a decent AFL career as a KPD who averages more than a goal a game over 100+ games. He will increase his influence on games the more he plays AFL because he will learn to play more effectively at that level.

    I punched the air when I saw him barrel Alir Alir over the boundary line. It is a great sign.
