    I guess in the short term Acres might have made sense but I'm hopeful the way that Gallagher finished off the season for both Vic Country and the Bendigo Pioneers it transitions into a fast start for us. While it's obviously very early but based on his running yesterday and the way he uses the ball it might still be a long shot but he could come into the selection mix early for us.

    Re: Welcome to the Kennel - Harvey Gallagher

    So a year (and a bit) on, what do we all think?

    Training reports suggest he's trained with the mids which points to his tank being up to scratch, but his flexibility means he could well develop into a 'coach's favourite' type. Is he getting games this year and is he the next 'Mr Fixit' / Anthony Scott play anywhere type, or will he settle into a single position?

    Good to see him get his chance at last. Has been impressive in the preseason.

    Re: Welcome to the Kennel - Harvey Gallagher

    I've always been very supportive of new blood being introduced to the team, but in this case I'm a little conflicted because I've always been a Jacko and Daniel sexboy.

    So to me this is a highly pressurised situation where someone who hasn't got an amazing track record of recent good performances possibly replacing (one is a given) two AA players and stalwarts of our team.

    I completely get the on paper reasoning, but I do hold trepidation toward to how it pans out. It's almost the prefect set up for a style over substance statement. Melbourne one game in and hardened, are a chance to rip him apart mercilessly. Especially after a loss. His inclusion has flattened me.

    And I know this kinda sounds cheap, but go well Gags. I really do hope you nail it.

    Maybe the time has come were players are picked on performance and not reputation.
    It's going to be an interesting season.

    They must have some high expectations internally as to Gag's capabilities, to have selected him in a pretty important and high pressure game.

    Re: Welcome to the Kennel - Harvey Gallagher

    I've been a fan, but I'm a little surprised. Thought he showed signs in the games v Hawthorn but not enough to play R1.

    Excited to see how he goes because our list has looked stale for a while so we need some fresh faces and energy, but I just hope this isn't a case of 'we knew he wasn't quite ready'.

    Go well Gags!

    Performance, and specific structure/role with a clear objective for that match.

    If the thinking is Jacko is an inside mid and that's it, or Daniel is a HBF, then Harvey isn't necessarily the one replacing them.

    I thought the same against Hawthron, but I also thought he had too much talent to not be picked. There's a little bit of early Ryan Griffen in the pace, strong hips and ability to win a one-on-one contest. In no way am I saying he'll be as good a player as Ryan was, but I really liked some of the little glimpses. There was a contest win on the wing in the third term where he got it moving to Bont that I really liked.
