    Yep.

    201cm
    94kg
    Athletically gifted
    Usually good disposal
    56 games experience

    Worth seeing if he’s that very tall KPD option we need before looking to trade one.

    The only issue is his lack of intensity and being a bit soft.

    But whats to lose as hes not making it as a forward.

    He is way softer than Jones. Doesn’t have upper body strength and doesn’t like the hard stuff. He would make a good golfer.

    Been saying it for ages.
    Our 1954 premiership players are our heroes, and it has to be said that Charlie was their hero.

    Really can’t see it. He just isn’t AFL standard.

    Cant hurt to try though.

    He's AFL skill standard, but in everything else he's not.

    I had high hopes for him, but it's time to put a line through.

    He rushed a contest near the line in the third (Cordy should watch how that’s done) and just after got an intercept spoil over the line. I just can’t see the MC sticking fat right now, so he plays forward in the vfl as we all look for a trade, or he moves back and we see what happens. I still like the attributes he has in the abstract, but maligned forwards like Prestagiacomo & Jones played/will play 150-200 games more as defenders. Once the JUH hype explodes his 5th in the pecking order. With Gardner still raw, Young out of favour and Cordy putrid, its time.

    Re: Time to pull the Liam Jones move.

    It's so far off the radar it's not funny. Has not played at CHB, like, ever.

    He would be horrible there.

    They said that about Liam Jones. Three games later he’s never been dropped from the seniors. Having him kick 40 in the vfl only marginally increases his trade value. If he can play a defensive role, maybe we don’t need to mortgage the farm to goy buy one. I see nothing to lose at this point.

    It's his only hope, there is no place for him in the forward half. He's just not good enough though, I'm willing to call it now personally. CHB is our hole, I can't fathom why we have not given Lewis more time there.

    I don’t think intensity can be Taught. He seems a second too late to the contest or just gets too easily nudged out

    He reminds me a lot of the Rocca brothers when they first came into the scene . At least collingwood had sense to bring in a chf to teach them from brisbane ( can’t remember his name of TOP of my head ) , but they became really good players for the pies
    Even at backline your need to be pest and petulant with your opponents
