    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.

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.

    After speaking to Obie for about fourty-five minutes on the telephone we
    Finally arrived at the truth of the matter and said that we had to go down
    And pick up the garbage, and also had to go down and speak to him at the
    Police officer's station. So we got in the red vw microbus with the
    Shovels and rakes and implements of destruction and headed on toward the
    Police officer's station.
    Now friends, there was only one or two things that Obie coulda done at
    The police station, and the first was he could have given us a medal for
    Being so brave and honest on the telephone, which wasn't very likely, and
    We didn't expect it, and the other thing was he could have bawled us out
    And told us never to be seen driving garbage around the vicinity again,
    Which is what we expected, but when we got to the police officer's station
    There was a third possibility that we hadn't even counted upon, and we was
    Both immediately arrested. Handcuffed.
    And I said "Obie, I don't think I can pick up the garbage with these handcuffs on. "
    "He said, "Shut up, kid. Get in the back of the patrol car. "

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