Great news! i used to hate this guy in the past as a backman with his poor foot skills and decision making, now I love him as a forward for his straight kicking. I love the turn around! 

It makes me wonder why he wasn't trialled as a forward earlier in his career. He was a forward as a junior, and whether we needed key position defender is irrelevant when he is a lot better as a forward. 

Last week at the dogs game, I noticed Oscar Mcdonald having shots for goal and he was slotting them beautifully with great technique. I wonder whether he could go forward in the same manner. On the other side, I wonder if Weideman could play back. He has the speed  and aerial prowess but he wouldn't need to mark it. Simply bring it to ground. Food for thought.

Not sure he is ready yet but under the right circumstances i wouldn't mind seeing this trialed either.   Worth a look when the timing's right and might become a solid tall defender for us.

Another "happening"" that reflects well on the Club and the player. 

Deal done quietly and quickly, not allowing rumour mongers to spin their web of deceit.

Honesty and goodwill on both sides.

Brilliant, brilliant news. Tom is an absolute gun and four years is the minimum contract length I was hoping for. That will see him right through the prime of his career, and will hopefully ensure he is a Demon for life. Well done to all involved.

Now for Oscar and Gus.

Who in their right mind would want to leave this club anyway?

The place is buzzing and we’re on the cusp of something special

I'd gladly give it all up for a Premiership. This signing brings us one step closer. 😛

Its hard to disagree with this point. His flexibility to play multiple roles as required to an elite standard is potentially the difference between us being good or great. Making up the numbers or having a serious shot.

We got better as soon as he went forward 

he takes grabs and rarely misses

I suspect he wanted to play with Gaff next season, hence the re-signing.

 

Great news. Thanks Tom.

Interesting. What do you base that on? Are they school chums?

The senior players at this club are leading by example and buying in. You could see the delight on the skipper as he was chaired off the ground last week.  And a week earlier Pedo was a great team mate cheering and clapping every player as they came off the ground at Alice.

Fantastic.
Was pretty confident he'd stay to play with his brother now we're on the rise.
Absolutely stoked to have his name on the dotted line.
