Taken from BigFooty, a former teammate of Jeremy Howe in Tasmania, a very smooth mover, quick, strong hands and good disposal.

Worth a look.

I'm not usually a fan of highlights videos but that was superimpressive.

If he's 20 years old and playing in the main comp. in Tassie, then he can be traded for an uncontracted player pick from GWS. Well worth doing, especially if we can trade out a couple of players.

Agree WJ. Does look good. Can you arrange it.

Looks good doesn't he, hope the club have had a look at him.

His short/mid passes DO NOT MISS. Good hands, kicks plenty of goals, and is lightening quick ... get him.

Looks very impressive. Seems to have that speed that Sam Blease has, moves quick without knowing it. The way you can tell is by the blokes chasing him get the Cale Hooker head wobble. Video highlights and exactly what they are. Highlights. What's the back ground on him?

Kicked 34 goals in 17 games. And got named 5 times in the best.. Obviously was playing forward early then moved into the midfield because a lot of his goals were in rounds 1-5. Only being in the best 5 times shows that he didn't exactly set the world on fire. Also think he was named in the Tasmanian state team. Don't know if he played Tassie Under 18s.

This is the most impressive highlights video you will ever see! He has everything - pace, good mark, good kick, takes the game on etc.

Someone with a skill set like that should be tearing a Tassie competition apart. With only 5 times in the best he must have some serious work rate issues...

He looks far too fast for the guys he's playing against in Tassie. I do wonder what his pace would look like when he's facing some of the better running half backs and mids at AFL level, but it would be good to find out. One other thing I noted was that he seemed a little selfish in some of those passages, running loops around opponents rather than passing. It looks great, but it only takes one of those guys to get a grip and he's suddenly a dud.

All that being said, damn he looked impressive. He can kick, he hits the packs with pace and takes the ball cleanly and as has been noted, his short passing game is very good. He obviously plays all over the park, although I'd like to see us take him as a small forward. Certainly worth either dealing with GWS or just drafting him. Could we get lucky in the second round again?

What about WJ's suggestion of doing a pick swap with GWS to get him now. Sure it is speculative but he looks so exciting.

Interesting commentary on some of that footage. Just retired, handy cricketer, very good golfer and a nice bloke too. (Brett Geeves)

Highlights looked really good. Most so in matches at Bellerive Oval against Clarence because you know he would have had good opponents then.

What about Robbie Campbell to GWS for Hall picked by them and ontraded. They need a ruckman desperately and he is a Premiership ruckman and very good club man.If Hall didn't make it you haven't lost much. Alternatively a pick upgrade for GWS as trade. Our 72 for their 80.

As much as I'd like to help I'm in Frankston at the moment and can't work miracles although I might be able to duck down the road to Seaford and see what I can do with Brendan Goddard.

The complication is that GWS can activate ten uncontracted players under the rule and most are spoken for.

They signed James McDonald last month and have traded six so far this trade period (Steven Morris, Marty Clarke, Jamie Elliott, Ahmed Saad, Terry Milera and Luke Brown). They are expected to keep Western Jet Adam Kennedy and Casey defender Tim Mohr which leaves one spot open.

I understand that Sheedy would love to get Andrew Lovett into the club but he has to convince his board who aren't so keen.

And I'm not sure that the GWS are going to be easy to deal with over their last choice under the rule.

Still, we've just learned what perseverance can achieve.

GWS are not going to be easy to deal with, but it would be worth having a word to them. If we could get this guy on the cheap I think we'd be pretty happy.

I love this site but i don't post often. How do we get this bloke? Looks like he can run all day like scully, can kick better than scully, can mark and goal better than scully. I realise it's not the strongest league but geez there are worse running around in the AFL. This kid should get snapped up!

We've been wondering that very thing. GWS has one pick left to pre-list a player and possibly trade him on. We could get him that way. They've been trading guys from this set pretty cheaply to other clubs, so who knows what they'd ask of us? In a few cases they've given players for second and third round pick upgrades, and that would be an absolute bargain.

If we couldn't get him through GWS and he were still available, the National draft would be the way to go. We might get lucky and grab him with our first pick (round 2), but in a weak draft I can see him going quite early. I doubt he'd slip to the PSD or Rookie drafts, although you can never tell what will happen on the day.

This boy will be In demand. Gws may want him for themselves.

Good luck getting him.

Agreed on all fronts. So we ask for just a little more luck from the Football Gods and try to get our hands on him prior to the draft if at all possible. Give them Warnock and a third round pick. Hell, give them a second round pick. It'd be worth it.

Could they, I haven't kept up with these GWS rules.

He looks very good through traffic with speed as well + acceleration off the mark. Nice kick and thinks on his feet.

Looks great.

You can certainly get sucked in by highlight reels and I along with many other Demonlanders have been in this case.

    OVERPOWERED by George on the Outer

    If there was ever a prime example of a team of players not ready for the new Football season it was Melbourne in the opening round of 2019.   Throughout the field there was just too much evidence of players who haven’t had sufficient pre-season or players who ordinarily wouldn’t have even graced the field at this early stage.  The Demons also got a lesson on selection with Port Adelaide showing that 2 ruckmen on the field is an essential for this season.  It was a lesson that should have be

    THE WELCOME GAME by Whispering Jack

    The Melbourne Football Club has moved forward in leaps and bounds since it last met Port Adelaide in a totally forgettable (for Demon fans) season opener on the MCG.  That game, played on Sunday, 31 March, 2013 before a crowd of 22,924, was supposed to be a close encounter between two of the competition’s lesser lights from the previous season when the Power had finished 14th and the Demons 16th (ahead only of AFL newbies Gold Coast and GWS). It turned into a slaughter with Port taking the

    THE WALKING WOUNDED by Paddy Gosch

    Forget the fact that Melbourne narrowly missed out on getting the four JLT points on offer for a second consecutive week and the blow to the ego of a supposed top four contender losing ... well almost at home ... to a team that has recently dwelt in the AFL cellar and won a mere five games in 2018. The things that emerged from the horror final JLT outing was that the Demons are a long way from being prepared to take on the rigours of a long tough season in which they have one of the hardest fixt

    PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons have named a star studded line up in it’s final practice match before the season proper. They take on the emerging Brisbane Lions out at Casey which is the second of three matches at the ground on Saturday. Many of the Dees best 22 have been recalled including Vice Captains Max Gawn and Neville Jetta whilst Captains Nathan Jones and Jack Viney will play restricted minutes in the VFL curtain raiser. Former Gold Coast co-captain Steven May will play his first official game for Melb

    HIT OUT by Paddy Gosch

    As far as preseason hit outs go, the Demons’ first JLT Community Series fixture against the Tigers in the blistering heat at Shepparton, was instructive of a number of things but not really conclusive as to how each team will fare in the regular season against the competition's big guns (which includes against each other). That’s the way these practice match hit outs go. Neither of the teams was at full strength, particularly Melbourne but if you were looking for the reason for the 12 point

    HOT OUT OF THE CITY by Paddy Gosch

    The Dees travel out of the city for game one of two JLT Community Series practice matches before the season proper. Our first match takes us to the floodplains of the Goldburn River in Northern Victoria to the city of Shepparton. We take on the Tigers for the first of at least 3 encounters with the 2017 Premiers this year. The game will be played in scorching temperatures so expect plenty of rotations, ice vests, fans running overtime and extra water carriers. The Demons are coming off a wi

    GAME, SET & SCRATCH by Paddy Gosch

    I always believe in starting off any report by accentuating the positive and in that regard, as at the time of writing, the Demons have not reported any injuries so that’s my major positive from today’s practice game v the Magpies (albeit that we know the club is somewhat lax in reporting these things so my best wishes go out if any of today’s participants are in intensive care at the Alfred).  Another positive was that Razor Ray performed his umpiring duties admirably which is more than I

    SCRATCH by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons are set to take on the old enemy Collingwood in a good old fashioned Scratch Match on Friday Morning. It is unknown what form the match will take, how many quarters there will be, their length, the amount of rotations or even whether they'll keep score. One thing we do know for sure is that both coaching staffs will be keeping their cards close to their chests to ensure neither will glean too much from their competition. The Dees will likely be without some of their stars as Tom

    IMAGINE by Whispering Jack

    The Demons made their official return to the training track for 2019 on a sunny Saturday morning at Goschs Paddock with most of the interest initially centred on a small patch of ground in one of the pockets where the rehab group was going through the paces. Some good pieces of news on that score. The  rehab group is considerably smaller than it was prior to the Christmas break with Christian Petracca (knee), James Harmes (shoulder), Jayden Hunt (shoulder), Neville Jetta (shoulder), Oscar M
