Andrew Brayshaw

Recommended Posts

We need as many uncompromising mids that we can get our hands on. Too many on our list pick and choose when they want to perform.

If people want more of what you saw in the first quarter against Collingwood as well as numerous other games this year then sure, let's draft him.

Foot-skills and pace are not his strong points. 

Forget the romanticism, we wouldn't go near him with pick 10.

Do the pundits think he will be there round pick 30 (our 2nd pick), last I heard he was a late 1st round prospect

Really good foot skills and has pace. He is not his brother, he doesn't find it like Gus does but a great kick and good acceleration out of a pack. Is what we need plain and simple. Hoping we pick him up. Right now draft range 10-20

Will need pick 10 for Lever anyway 'steve'...

it'll be interesting to see where he sits - seems like a player that has rocketed into the top 5, with brisbane and freo (both interstate sides) seemingly keen

for underage watchers, is he better than gus?

my biggest criticism of gus (other than his unfortunate inability to stay on the park) is that he misses those 'dolly' kicks from 35m that should scythe through the air to a teammate - too often they go wide, high or short

it's funny really, cos he seems fine kicking it long

And Juddy

The post I replied to was about players returning home to play at the same club as a sibling, or so I thought. Don't think Pendles or Juddy come into that category.

Andy seems fitter, faster and a more penetrating kick that Gus. He's fitting the mould of how the game has swung back towards pace and running the ball with the Dogs and this Richmond team.

Gus is bigger, stronger and more suited to the style that was in vogue when he was drafted of big bodied mids. I am hoping that with a strong fitness base and consistent game time that Gus will mature and get sharper in his ball use and quicker on his feet. That's been true of a lot of players over the years, like a Josh Kennedy at Sydney.

The other thing I think recruiters are picking up on is that with the number 1 pick especially but also with top 3, top 5 or top 10 even you have to pick a player who will thrive under scrutiny. That can be a Dusty or Clarry who outwardly look like lads but have inner determination or it can be an Andy McGrath super professional type but they have to be resilient. Andy Brayshaw seems like that.

At the very least we should make enquiries and kick up rumours every single year for the rest of his career. At best we get a gun player, at worst we push up Freo's salary cap and give the Brayshaw family a little extra cash.

You overthink things.

I've twice seen Andrew squib incidents this year, but he's a first year player, so you cut him slack.  One was a really bad moment. 

He may turn out to be a star but I didn't see a lot to be overly enthused by. 

Cerra on the other hand...

That post was from Nov last year and with a good run of games Gus got right back to being a star.

Was I wrong?
