  1. The segment highlighted that we are ranked 6th for i50's but 18th score per i50. The stats haven't changed last year, even though it's something the club has publicly stated would be addressed. The footage is pretty damning, rather than finding the free player inside our forward line, players are opting to go long to a contest. The two examples shown are from our leaders being Gawn and Viney. Every team in the league knows this and plans accordingly.
  2. Too many players with no impact Spargo and ANB (even though he kicked a lucky goal). Brayshaw is probably the most disappointing doesn't provide any defensive running and doesn't want to lay a tackle. TMAC's move him to the backline. On a positive note, Langdon is exactly what we were missing and Lockhart has a future.
  3. Could the mystery kid be one of: Melbourne: Ollie Lord, Will Phillips 2020 eligible draftees training with Melbourne from an AFL article a couple weeks ago. Lord is 195cm key forward and Phillips is a midfielder.
  4. Grundy the most comparable player, played 7 games in his debut year. Pre-season games will give us a good indication whether he's going to be pushing for an early debut. I think you have written off Pruess too early, from training reports he appears to have slimmed down remarkably and coaches have him working on his forward craft.
  5. Freo massive winners with Young, Serong and Henry. Two top 5 rated players leading up to the draft and Henry who looks pretty special. GC with Rowell, Anderson and Flanders also big winners. Again three top 5 players leading up to the draft.
  6. Wouldn't mind us taking a punt on a KPF i.e. Mitch Georgiades or Charlie Dean.
  7. True Footy's Phantom Draft Pick 1: Gold Coast Suns Matthew Rowell (VIC) Pick 2: Gold Coast Suns Noah Anderson (VIC) Pick 3: Melbourne Luke Jackson (WA) Pick 4: GWS Giants Lachie Ash (VIC) Pick 5: GWS Giants (MATCHING SYD BID) Tom Green (NSW) Pick 6: Sydney Swans Deven Robertson (WA) Pick 7: Adelaide Crows Fisher McAsey (SA) Pick 8: Fremantle Hayden Young (VIC) Pick 9: Fremantle Dylan Stephens (SA) Pick 10: Carlton Sam Flanders (VIC) Pick 11: Fremantle (MATCHING MELB BID) Liam Henry (WA) Pick 12: Melbourne Kysaiah Pickett (SA) Pick 13: Hawthorn Brodie Kemp (VIC) Pick 14: Port Adelaide Caleb Serong (VIC) Pick 15: Western Bulldogs Cody Weightman (VIC) Pick 16: Geelong Miles Bergman (VIC) Pick 17: Gold Coast Suns Will Day (SA) Pick 18: Port Adelaide Trent Bianco (VIC) Pick 19: Geelong Josh Worrell (VIC) Pick 20: Port Adelaide Jeremy Sharp (WA)
  8. I think the bolded is what worries most on here. It's appears from us armchair experts to be a big risk. Our track record of developing draftees has been mostly miss over the past decade. I'm still in the Young camp because he appears reliable, driven and will probably make an immediate impact. Jackson on the other hand is an unknown quantity, he's still developing and has massive potential but can he develop into a KPF? will his height hamper him becoming a 1st ruck? Will he want to return to WA down the track?
  9. Regarding his height, Nankervis, Martin and Ryder are all -199cm, they go alright. I still prefer Young at 3.
  10. Hope he can bounce back. Kicked 22 goals in 2018, if he can recapture that form he's in our best 22.
  11. Don't think those stats are very flattering. Avg 7 disposals and 0.5 goals in SANFL albeit only playing 2 games. His SANFL reserves goals average is boosted by his 6 goal effort. 2 goals in 3 games at the U18 championships. I think he's exciting and would be a crowd favourite but no way would we select him at 3 or 8.
  12. What does that matter? The draft is still weeks away. Anyway, watching these videos on YouTube with this young kid who interviews draft hopefuls, Stephens is a Victorian and only been in SA for the past 3 years on a scholarship.
  13. BigFooty are running their Phantom Draft at the moment, top 10 is: 1 - GC Rowell, 2 - GC Anderson, 3 - MEL Young, 4 - GWS Green (matched bid), 5 - ADE Flanders, 6 - SYD Jackson, 7 - FRE Stephens, 8 - MEL Serong, 9 - CAR Ash, 10 - FRE Robertson. With this in mind, if Serong/Ash are still available at pick 8, do they get selected before Kemp?
  14. https://afl.draftcentral.com.au/2019/11/04/2019-afl-draft-guide-released/ AFL draft central have released their draft guide. Profiles on 130+ players and includes stats for U18 champs plus NAB/State leagues.
  15. On Monday I believe the AFL draft central website will release their Draft Guide which is a 130+ page document with expanded draft profiles and statistics for all combine invitees.
