    I know nothing about him, but a quick search suggests he has been playing in defence, is he a lockdown or rebounding type?

    Quick look at the Hawks BF board and it seems he's much more of a running player (half back or mid) than a lockdown small. If he can add that to his game there's a spot there for him. Sounds like his run and ball use is good though.

    Happy with picking him up, he came to the Hawks as a mid but I've primarily seen him in defence. Was great against Footscray in the VFL finals.

    I'm really pleased with selection. He can play in a variety of positions and is ready to go

    Just based on the VFL final against Footscray he seems a better break glass option for a BP or HBF than VDM so I’m on board.

    Re: WOOF Welcomes Lachlan Bramble to the Kennel

    I think he is a winger, and am surprised we have grabbed him considering we just drafted 2 and he is a similiar level to Poulter and Baker.

    I do rate him though, good runner, breaks the lines and finds the ball a bit easier than Baker.

    Not sure about his one on one work in defence.
    I should leave it alone but you're not right

    I think we will use him out of defence and he is a safe guard for Duryea.

    Me too I guess, it's just he's always struck as more of the Ed Langdon type. Hard runner and long kicker who plays pretty wide.

    I think this is an astute decision in isolation, but I am mystified by the 3 years given to VDM and 2 years to Baker (and to a lesser extent the 2 years given to Poulter).

    These 4 have taken up a lot of space on the list for 2024-2025 (and 2026 in the case of VDM), and if we're being kind the jury is still out on all of them as viable and bankable medium to long-term AFL standard players.

    This is a good pick up. He was amazing in that semi v the Dogs at Box Hill. He ran and ran and ran and had a ton of the ball. From memory decent disposal too.
    Half back/wing I think.

    Here's the mini of the vfl semi, I'm sure he will pop up regularly you probably don't need to watch the entire thing.

    Cant believe I posted a thread on this thinking I was first to the punch and had outplayed BAD

    Interesting selection - decisively quick from the listen management team - competition for spots on a wing

    I don't mind the money ball selections but like you said it's a long term investment for a ceiling that already looks to have been reached by all. All these guys as well as Scott are good VFL players and one their day are ok at AFL level. Not sure on this guy, I doubt his best football is in front of him or there are many new tricks available.
