    Welcome to the Western Bulldogs: Louis Butler

    https://draftprospects.prod.afl/prospect/1011992

    Medium defender who displays excellent use of the ball and decision making out of defence. He has good speed and impressed while representing Vic Metro in the 2019 NAB AFL Under-18Championships. He averaged 18 disposals in all four matches and was prolific with the Sandringham Dragons in the NAB League, averaging 20.6 disposals in eight matches.

    Taken with Pick 53.

    Ryan was a beautiful kick and could thump it long, so if he is better than that, great

    Yeah that’s what I thought - seriously underrated kick the shag

    Ryan was an excellent kick except for the one kick he'd butcher each game!

    I liked the look of his video, seems to know where to run to get it and use his leg which is a good sign, and doesn't always take an easy option. It's really hard to tell in the later rounds, but he looks fine and this is where the recruiters make their money.

    Ryan was a good long kick but not always a great decision maker. More a 'give it a roost' type IIRC (as most of our team was going I50 by the end of the Rocket years)

    I imagine we develop him on a wing. Elite endurance going by combine results.

    That's what I'm hoping for too. A wing partner to Hunter who also has elite endurance and good disposal is filling another piece of the puzzle.

    When was the last time we had a Louis play for us?

    According to AFL Tables, never! No Cody or Riley either (although John Riley played 1 game in 1984).

    Closest was Lou Barker who played 23 games from 1947-1949.

    Breaking new ground! There's another Cody next year and a Jamarra, to add to Louis, Cody & Riley.

    Did parents turn quickly on naming ever child the name Bailey about 18 years go?

    The shimmy, run, great kick, good overhead mark, takes aggressive options through the corridor, drops back to help defenders and ability to run and carry.

    From the clip, I actually see a little bit of Robert Murphy about him. If he grows a couple a cm's and puts on another 7-8kg (from his measurements taken earlier this year), had will be the identical height and weight to Bob too.
