From the MFC website:

Rory Taggert

Height: 188cm

Weight: 87kg

DOB: 22/6/93

Club: North Ballarat Rebels

A versatile player, Taggert is capable of playing forward, back or in the midfield. He is strong overhead, good one-on-one, and an impressive decision maker. He is solid on the right foot.

"Taggert a medium forward. Elite mark and kick, knocks were endurance and work ethic but improving. From North Ballarat. Now a Dee"

From Snoop's BF Phantom:

"Terrific sized midfielder who can play a few different roles and has the ability to push fwd and kick goals. Got a guernsey for VC but not sure he ran out (certainly not the games i saw). Has reasonable pace but terrific agility and endurance. Skills are very good"

The 187-centimetre midfielder-cum-forward impressed at AFL Draft Combine in October after he was invited following strong performances for TAC Cup club North Ballarat Rebels.

"I'd never broken three seconds in the 20 metres and I did that for the first time and I had run 14.1 before the camp and I run a 14.8 beep test, so I was happy with that," Taggert said.

"I got third overall in vertical leap and fourth in the handball test."

Taggert reached his goals in those tests but was disappointed with his result in the Nathan Buckley-designed kicking test.

Having prided himself on his precise kicking, the former St Brigid's College student felt he wiltered under the pressure.

Barry Prendergast interviewed on SEN.

Mentioned that having filled a lot of holes in the list in the last 2-3 drafts, so were looking at best available.

Described Taggart as a really talented big-bodied midfielder
