    Rating our list 2020 Josh Schache 13

    Well number 5 is back so we'll continue on. Anyway the list rating still goes on as we continue to evaluate each player on our list starting with the highest number Lin Jong down to Matthew Suckling.
    The poll will run for a week and when your post in the poll if you can give a reason on your thoughts so we can share your insights.
    At the end we'll see how our list looks in the eyes of WOOF members.
    There are plenty of talented people in the world. As you already know, talent is not enough. Some of the athletes with the most potential never pan out. What separates the good from the great is determination and work ethic.

    A few stats:
    Age : 23
    Height: 199cm
    Weight: 94Kg
    Games: 56

    Josh Schache joined the Western Bulldogs as part of a deadline deal in the 2017 NAB AFL Trade Period, after the Club sent picks 25 and 40 to the Brisbane Lions in exchange for the 20-year old key forward. A highly-touted junior, Schache joined the Bulldogs after 27 games and two seasons at the Lions after he was taken with the second overall pick at the 2015 NAB AFL Draft. The former Murray Bushranger won the Larke Medal as the best player in Division 1 of the 2015 NAB AFL Under-18 championships, on the back of kicking 24 goals across the tournament. After settling back in Victoria, Schache has worked to establish himself as a strong forward option for the emerging Bulldogs attack. Schache played 10 of the last 11 games of the 2019 AFL Premiership Season, including making his AFL Finals debut. Schache has inked a contract extension in November, 2019 to ensure he remains at VU Whitten Oval until at least the end of 2022.

    I like Josh but I marked him at VFL because I think he just lacks consistency and just doesn't get involved enough.
    May be modern football doesn't suit him as he reminds me of a skinny Dunstall and if he was leading out of the box with a midfield that looks for him he could prosper.

    He surely can be AFL quality. Not sure what the conditions are to unlock that though. It it purely on him and his mentality? Does the coaching need to do something to allow for him to play consistently at a level appropriate for his talent? Tough one to answer. Right now he's in no-mans land.

    It’s simple. MC wants him to be more desperate and physical. If he can’t, then he’s playing VFL until he’s out of contract.
    I will never see #16 the same!!

    Wouldn't mind seeing him get an Ayce Cordy six week window at half forward.

    Fairly or otherwise, he will struggle to get a look-in behind Bruce. Clearly he showed better synergy up forward with Naughts in late 2019 than Bruce did in 2020.

    He needs to get crazy fit to be able to run and repeat effort up and down the arcs - that is well and truly in his control. He also needs to become so much more aggressive and competitive in marking contests - I'm not confident he has this in his demeanor to be able to do this. If he can't drastically improve both aspects, his AFL career is done at the end of this contract.

    I think he has the required skills and ability to be a regular and effective senior player. I still rate his potential but he needs to become a hungry for the football player and be harder at the man

    It's up to Josh to lift his intensity now

    I think everyone has summed him up pretty well. One thing I can say is he is a beautiful set shot kick at goal.

    For the love of the fans Josh, show some urgency, show some desire for physical contest at the man, at the ball and at the contest.

    Has all the tools to make it he just needs to show some damn urgency.

    Yeah at the end of 2018 I was all the way in, but I’m ready to move on. I’ve got a Jamarra now.

    I want him to get bigger and stronger, so he can help out in the ruck from the year after next as Martin winds his career down.

    With Naughton and JUH as our long term forwards, I only see a role as a forward who can help out in the ruck for Josh long term with our club.

    Has a lot of talent, just needs to find a way to match that with some aggression and authority within a game.

    Tbh I thought he was crashing packs and bringing the ball to ground in 2019.
