The Zac Bailey thread

Recommended Posts

This article says we have shown interest in Zac Bailey and may use one of our first 3 picks on him. Adelaide and Port have picks after these. Other clubs could be eyeing him off too.

Anyone know much about him?

Strong around the ball, good pace, looks to release team mates with solid handballs while drawing contact from opponents. Only query at this stage is his kicking. It's inconsistent, but I don't think it's a skill issue, I think it's a composure issue where he hasn't learnt to slow down the last step or two to steady for the kick. I think it's due to inexperience and not knowing his limits yet. Could be fixed and would be a good option with any of our picks if he's available.

Yes a definite chance.  I see him as a 25-35 draft pick and he would be a good choice at our picks (any one of 29,31,36).

Not worried. We'll bring him in for a late pick in 2 years when he wants to come home (We're the NT Dees right?)

The last bolter we got (Oliver) turned out to be pretty good.

If we get this kid lets hope for a similar result...

Given the state of our list that's a pretty big red flag.

Just spent quite a while watching through some of his games and highlights. The best thing I like about this kid, is that he has willingness to take the game on, and loves to hold the ball and draws a defender for him to tackle which allows a team mate last second to be released and fires off a handball. Oliver does this very well also, and those traits have class written all over them.

Would be stoked for this guy, will be a player. Watch this space.
