    Nugget!

    Didn't realise he played as a defender in the WAFL. Wonder if he spends time back over summer

    While he's best as a midfielder he rotated through the forward line a lot as well so I could see him playing forward minutes and then pinch hitting in the middle.

    Congrats Rory. Good news story. Hope you push for senior selection. I like his tenacity and tackling at VFL level, let’s hope it translates well to AFL.

    Robbie also won our VFL B&F and a VFL trainers award so clearly the club loves him as a leader.

    Whatever they are doing down at Footscray keep it going.

    I thought he looked a long way off a year or so back but hasn't he kicked on superbly.

    Good luck Robbie.
    We pass it to Charlie, Charlie onto Jones, Arthur to Jamarra and Marra puts it through. Aren't we good, Aren't we good....

    He was awesome for Footscray in the limited opportunities he got. An absolute bull.
    Our 1954 premiership players are our heroes, and it has to be said that Charlie was their hero.

    Does he have the ability to lockdown on opposition mids? That is probably his best bet of getting a game

    He was one of our main production guys in the middle so didn’t really tag but he seems the type to just do any job asked of him.

    Really happy that we have been able to provide another opportunity for one of our Footscray listed boys. McComb's form deserved a chance with us.

    The development coaches will have plenty of work to do.

    Coming originally from WA with a surname like McComb his nickname has to be Triffid (after WA band Triffids member David McComb) doesn't it.


    I loved the Triffids

    Just FYI my solo acoustic version of that song is SOOO much better than the original.

    But please don't ask anyone in my family for validation of that fact!
