Yes on Scully. Don't know about Trengrove but he's doing well in the SANFL.

I believe so.

Scully will play just as many as a Rich this year IMO. He's that good.

Trengove will be ready, he's been playing for Sturt of late and playing well. Becoming accustomed to 'hard bodies' in at Senior level.

Others may have different opinions.

Thanks Guys i saw a lot of WAFL games last year through work at the ABC, but we don't get the interstate Feeds this year.

Last year i watched Rich Nik Nat (freak Talent) & Taylor walker all evolve-was great. I can't hate 'em!!!

Our young must be that good & Better.....

Are Scully & Trengove as "ready made" as Daniel Rich.

The difference between Rich and both Trengove and Scully is that Rich has an unbelievable physique. He has such a huge amount of muscle bulked onto his frame for an 18/19 year old, that even people who train 10 years might struggle to achieve. He is just lucky that his body has the genes to easily put on muscle. Morton on the other hand, has a body type that really struggles to put on muscle. He'd have to eat a horse to put on any weight.

Question i need answering as best as possible.

Are Scully & Trengove as "ready made" as Daniel Rich. I saw a lot of Rich on TV. I haven't seen the 2 Boys for this year, only go on what i read.

Are they Ready for senior AFL straight away??

Yes and no. Rich is ridiculously overdeveloped, and has the skill set to make an impact immediately... including a loooong, flat, accurate kick, which is something that is as useful at 18 as it is at 32.

Scully isn't that kind of player necessarily. And neither he nor Trengove have the big body of Rich right now. But then, who does? In terms of work ethic, skills, and engines... I can say at least in Scully's case, he could play a lot of footy next year. Trengove has also been playing amongst men all year too.

The only thing will be how their bodies handle the physical stuff. I'd have said the same as all of this about Grimes, but his first season was ruined by a back injury. Scully is fairly slight... Trengove less so, but still just a teenager. There's a reason they call Rich Bam Bam.

I heard at the weekend from a "source" very loosely associated with the club that Shaun Burgoyne will request a trade.

Same source also added a bit of background to what Rucci alluded to as the "cliques" among the players which is affecting their playing as a team and may be part of the reason Shaun wants out. Not surprising both Burgoynes and Pearce are supposedly members of the same clique with Senior Burgoyne being the prime "agitator", as also alluded to by Rucci when mentioning "off field issues" affecting his on field performance.

All is not well down in Alberton it would seem.

thats for sure.. seems to be a pigs breakfast of 'affection and love' pmsl !! I geta few bottles from a SA wino mate..he an avid Crow boy..he thinks its hilarious. They seem on the point of implosion .

Pearce is more than handy. I say it again ..trade week 2009 is going to be very intereting..ought to be a lot more 'interests with weight"

I'm not surprised if this is all true. I'm glad you mentioned Pearce, it confirms what I heard. I wonder how Bailey got along with these blokes. :)

Food for thought.

Probably why they're scrambling to get Hardwick back even though he's been knocked back by North and now probably the Tiges.

Don't blame the tiges either for choosing Hinkley.

Anyone seen the speech at 3/4 time in the GFL grand final?

That was against my team.

The bastard got them up that's for sure - they wouldn't have had a chance without him pulling the strings.

Yes, it seems it's Hinkley to Tigers, Hardwick to Port Adelaide like the Buckley/Malthouse and Roos/Longmire set-ups. Stuey Dew to replace Hardwick at Hawks?

I think with these sorts of developments Bailey will really be in the gun next year, re: media speculation as to his demise.

Same with Clarkson at Hawthorn.

Let's hope we can win enough games to keep this from happening. Let another club be the story

point 1 - you dont have to be involved in trade week

2 - DB is building a list of kids to grow learn and play together

3 - for the last time ,Rich was playing against men for two years before entering the AFL system, Scully , like Watts will be a star but MAY need time

    GALLANT by KC from Casey

    The world “gallant” is not one that is readily acceptable to losing teams in our game of football so when it was used in the context of the Casey Demons’ loss to Sandringham in yesterday’s match at Casey Fields, it left a bitter taste in the mouth.  The Demons went into the game against the St Kilda affiliated Zebras with the advantage of playing on their home turf (not that this has been a major asset in 2024) and with very little else going in their favour. The Saints have close to a full

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w

    It's Game Day and after 2 losses on the trot the Dees must win against the Saints today at the MCG to keep in touch with the Top 4. A loss today will see them drop out of the Top 8 for the first time since 2020.
