    Welcome to the Doggies Arthur, here’s hoping for an electrifying carrier with us.

    Re: Welcome to the Western Bulldogs - Arthur Jones

    Listening to the podcast, he sounds like a really grounded, switched on kid.

    Some interesting takeaways:
    -He had at least three clubs in contact with him
    -He gets compared to Bradley Hill
    -He would have been in the West Coast NGA programme, but decided not to sign the contract- two other boys signed, but he didn't understand the contract so took it home. He and his mum couldn't make sense of it, so opened not to sign.
    -Wesley College student- has been involved in Indigenous programmes, including designing an Indigenous tie as an awareness/fundraising idea (closing the gap initiative). He also designed their indigenous Guernsey with a few other boys.
    -Is indeed related to the Krakouers
    -Sounds like he has some leadership qualities- and is keen to play a leadership role.

    A good listen, including a nice story at the end. The kid sounds like an absolute gem.

    The rig on this kid once he's done a few preseasons will be completely out of control.

    Arthur. The once and Future king!



    The Lady of the Lake-- her arm clad in the purest shimmering samite,
    held aloft Excalibur from the bosom of the water, signifying by
    divine providence that I, Arthur, was to carry Excalibur
    Now is the winter of our discontent

    Welcome, King.
    Our 1954 premiership players are our heroes, and it has to be said that Charlie was their hero.

    thanks for posting. A good listen. The host does a really good job in bringing Arthur out of his shell.

    I love this kid already.

    Thanks TAC for summarising this.
    Really gives an insight into the type of player and person aspects we like to bring together when determining who to draft. It really does seem that we place a high value on personal attributes.

    I am really looking forward to seeing Arthur develop. He looks to have a lot to work with.
