JKH signs on for another year

Recommended Posts

Well done lad.

Might be a reflection of the sheer amount of list turnover we're experiencing this season, but still, congratulations to the kid. Hopefully he can get even better from here on in.

Well done!  He fully earned it with his second half of the year.

Has the ability. We need to keep some mature bodied depth players. He is not best 22 but best 30 so likely will get game time in 2019 and must take chances  

Next step is to move from very good VFL player to week after week AFL standard. Big preseason. Bring it on Jkh

good on him for sticking with it. not my fave by a long shot, but i admire his tenacity and how he's managed to add to his game with forward pressure and improved foot skills.

Glad he’s staying but his second half of the vfl grand final was really not encouraging 

Here’s hoping he continues to improve

JkH well done and deserving a one year contract  after you battled hard to break into the line up  only to be unlucky not to hold your spot. However you are still young, talented and have a chance to take the next step to become a very good consistent player. I believe that you will be our most improved player in 2019.  You have the capabilities.

With the delistings, retirements and rumors swirling about vanders, Hogan and Kent it makes food sense to lock him up. He could be in the mix for round 1 given the potential list turnover.

I'm hoping he has a massive 2019

He looked gone for all money early in the year but really turned it around.

All credit to him...

Certainly getting most out of himself and won’t retire wondering what could have been.

I wonder if he might be trialled down back next year?  Doesn’t have the speed or smarts to be an AFL small forward, struggles with the pace and skills in the midfield... could he be trialled as a small defender in the mould of Neville Jetta..?

One year contact to see how he goes. FD still unsure so prudent thinking.

Didn’t rate him, dropped the ball way too often, was a deer in headlights, this year tho, he seemed to be a bit more settled, seemed t9 concentrate on tackling and the defensive side of things.

A one year deal seems the right amount.

Well earned indeed 

He worked hard on those defensive aspects as well as his tank,  but was also reliable user of the ball albeit not often in damaging positions

I hope he continues to improve and gets to play ~10 games next year

One year contract yells "cant let everyone go in one season"...need someone to play in the VFL and provide options ( some depth )

If he has anything more to show...nows the time.

He must be well regarded to have avoided the scythe cutting a swathe.

Will have to really improve his composure with ball in hand if he's not going to be delisted at the end of 2019.

With Tyson, Kent and AVB going, Vince retiring and Lewis and Jones probably in their last year, this is a very strategic decision. Perhaps he elevates from fringe to bottom 5 or 6 in 2019?

I was pleasantly surprised with his form in those last few games he played. That might be at least in part because my expectations for him were rock-bottom, but still, I think this is a good call.

He really surprised me this year.  He showed some real energy and grunt, and fully earned this 1 year contract. He might really surprise in 2019.
