  1. CHANGES 2017 - PART TWO

    I noticed that the draftee height and weight stats in this post are the same as those given on the AFL draft hub page with one exception, Fritsch. As above, from Inside Football -187cm, 80kg. AFL draft hub page - 186cm 74kg. That’s a fair difference in his weight. Given that he will probably (hopefully) be bulking up from his current physique, it’d be interesting to know what the starting point actually is. MFC website is yet to include the latest draftees on their list of senior players, so can’t access their height and weight stats for Fritsch. May have to wait and see what reading their scales give.
  2. Passing on Stefan Giro

    Thanks for that.
  3. Passing on Stefan Giro

    How is it that we didn’t have a rookie draft pick? We currently have four rookies but are allowed up to six.
  4. Does anyone know why we didn't select Stefan Giro as a rookie? I don’t know much about him other than what I’ve read on the net. Prior to the rookie draft there was an article suggesting we were one of three clubs (including Freo) who had in-depth talks with him. He has great possession stats, apparently had an excellent game against Vic Country in the U18 champs, has elite endurance and 2.93 secs for 20m. His highlights package shows an accurate left foot kick, but no right foot disposal on display. Is this his main weakness? Or he doesn’t tackle enough? Or is it that he’s only 175cm and MFC think they have enough young prospects of that size? But Dion Johnstone doesn’t seem to have shown much, and who knows with Spargo, given his shoulder issue. JKH may or may not make it. I thought the rookie draft is supposed to be a relatively low cost punt, and was surprised we ‘passed’ on our one rookie pick.
