    Awesome.

    Welcome Marra!

    It's sinking in a bit now, actually knowing this kid is ours is the business.

    He moves so well, can't wait to see him in action. The Buddy comparisons would be fair, if Buddy could mark overhead!

    Re: Welcome Jamarra Ugle-Hagan to the Western Bulldogs

    It’s probably not in his highlights, but watching his games last year he not only loves to tackles, he’s good a good technique and he loves to hurt anyone silly enough to be holding a ball within his closing speed. This will hopefully add to holding the ball forward more often and/or pressure to force turnovers. That’s also something I assume we are still missing that is a great ‘bonus’ to everything else he offers.

    Our two best pressure forwards could be two of our three tallest forwards, given defenders fill their pantaloons any time Naughton is roaming and in a bit of a mood.

    I was staggered to learn Jamarra is only the second ever indigenous Number 1. I thought there was more than just Des Headland, without thinking too much about it. Breaking down another barrier tonight as the first indigenous player to go at Pick 1 in 22 years, on top of second only ever. I’m glad our club is one of just 2 clubs to ever do it.

    Yep. Hopefully Weightman & Vandermeer (both sub 3 seconds over 20m) can start to fill out a more aggressive pressure forward group up front.

    Yeah, Vander putting pressure on the outlet in particular - as I think our defence really breaks down on that second line when teams are moving it out of our forward line. I like him playing high and running at the defenders, occasionally burning into space to get ahead of the footy for a score.

    Heard the Crows will flick him $10k under the table. Plays like Tippett. Gets paid like Tippett.
    Woof.

    Some good interviews up on our website.

    Seems like a really good character and infectious. Can't wait to see his development!

    The interview on afl.com.au he gave a fair old clip to Paddy McCartin! It was completely inadvertent and unintentional. But he was responding to a question on whether there was added pressure being the number 1 pick. He said it's just a number and part of his response was that his coach asked him who was drafted no 1 6 years ago. He said he didn't know, hence why it doesn't really matter where you get drafted. Well he picked a convenient year to not remember! Poor old Paddy!

    I was doing the math in my head making sure it wasn't Tom Boyd he was referencing.

    I heard Jamarra on ABC early morning radio with Sammy J. Relaxed, articulate, natural, unaffected. Just ticks all the boxes

    2016 - thankfully Franklin likes to go for a second touch and Dale Morris knew it. I love watching Buddy play.

    The 2008 qualifying final was peak Buddy, pity it was against us. As for the 2016 GF, it was a shame Buddy was hampered a bit but in the last he seemed to be moving OK after the jabs to his ankle set in however, while I think we still would have beaten anyone that day it would have been good for him to have a bit more of an impact on the game.
