Taken from BigFooty, a former teammate of Jeremy Howe in Tasmania, a very smooth mover, quick, strong hands and good disposal.

Worth a look.

I'm not usually a fan of highlights videos but that was superimpressive.

If he's 20 years old and playing in the main comp. in Tassie, then he can be traded for an uncontracted player pick from GWS. Well worth doing, especially if we can trade out a couple of players.

Agree WJ. Does look good. Can you arrange it.

Looks good doesn't he, hope the club have had a look at him.

His short/mid passes DO NOT MISS. Good hands, kicks plenty of goals, and is lightening quick ... get him.

Looks very impressive. Seems to have that speed that Sam Blease has, moves quick without knowing it. The way you can tell is by the blokes chasing him get the Cale Hooker head wobble. Video highlights and exactly what they are. Highlights. What's the back ground on him?

Kicked 34 goals in 17 games. And got named 5 times in the best.. Obviously was playing forward early then moved into the midfield because a lot of his goals were in rounds 1-5. Only being in the best 5 times shows that he didn't exactly set the world on fire. Also think he was named in the Tasmanian state team. Don't know if he played Tassie Under 18s.

This is the most impressive highlights video you will ever see! He has everything - pace, good mark, good kick, takes the game on etc.

Someone with a skill set like that should be tearing a Tassie competition apart. With only 5 times in the best he must have some serious work rate issues...

He looks far too fast for the guys he's playing against in Tassie. I do wonder what his pace would look like when he's facing some of the better running half backs and mids at AFL level, but it would be good to find out. One other thing I noted was that he seemed a little selfish in some of those passages, running loops around opponents rather than passing. It looks great, but it only takes one of those guys to get a grip and he's suddenly a dud.

All that being said, damn he looked impressive. He can kick, he hits the packs with pace and takes the ball cleanly and as has been noted, his short passing game is very good. He obviously plays all over the park, although I'd like to see us take him as a small forward. Certainly worth either dealing with GWS or just drafting him. Could we get lucky in the second round again?

What about WJ's suggestion of doing a pick swap with GWS to get him now. Sure it is speculative but he looks so exciting.

Interesting commentary on some of that footage. Just retired, handy cricketer, very good golfer and a nice bloke too. (Brett Geeves)

Highlights looked really good. Most so in matches at Bellerive Oval against Clarence because you know he would have had good opponents then.

What about Robbie Campbell to GWS for Hall picked by them and ontraded. They need a ruckman desperately and he is a Premiership ruckman and very good club man.If Hall didn't make it you haven't lost much. Alternatively a pick upgrade for GWS as trade. Our 72 for their 80.

As much as I'd like to help I'm in Frankston at the moment and can't work miracles although I might be able to duck down the road to Seaford and see what I can do with Brendan Goddard.

The complication is that GWS can activate ten uncontracted players under the rule and most are spoken for.

They signed James McDonald last month and have traded six so far this trade period (Steven Morris, Marty Clarke, Jamie Elliott, Ahmed Saad, Terry Milera and Luke Brown). They are expected to keep Western Jet Adam Kennedy and Casey defender Tim Mohr which leaves one spot open.

I understand that Sheedy would love to get Andrew Lovett into the club but he has to convince his board who aren't so keen.

And I'm not sure that the GWS are going to be easy to deal with over their last choice under the rule.

Still, we've just learned what perseverance can achieve.

GWS are not going to be easy to deal with, but it would be worth having a word to them. If we could get this guy on the cheap I think we'd be pretty happy.

I love this site but i don't post often. How do we get this bloke? Looks like he can run all day like scully, can kick better than scully, can mark and goal better than scully. I realise it's not the strongest league but geez there are worse running around in the AFL. This kid should get snapped up!

We've been wondering that very thing. GWS has one pick left to pre-list a player and possibly trade him on. We could get him that way. They've been trading guys from this set pretty cheaply to other clubs, so who knows what they'd ask of us? In a few cases they've given players for second and third round pick upgrades, and that would be an absolute bargain.

If we couldn't get him through GWS and he were still available, the National draft would be the way to go. We might get lucky and grab him with our first pick (round 2), but in a weak draft I can see him going quite early. I doubt he'd slip to the PSD or Rookie drafts, although you can never tell what will happen on the day.

This boy will be In demand. Gws may want him for themselves.

Good luck getting him.

Agreed on all fronts. So we ask for just a little more luck from the Football Gods and try to get our hands on him prior to the draft if at all possible. Give them Warnock and a third round pick. Hell, give them a second round pick. It'd be worth it.

He looks very good through traffic with speed as well + acceleration off the mark. Nice kick and thinks on his feet.

Looks great.

You can certainly get sucked in by highlight reels and I along with many other Demonlanders have been in this case.

    MUD HEAP by KC from Casey

    In the opening round of the 2018 VFL season, the Casey Demons enjoyed an emphatic 107 point victory over Coburg at Piranha Park. The team was loaded with Melbourne listed players (half a dozen of them were in the team that beat Fremantle on Saturday) and the side was in its way to a grand final appearance. A season and a half later, the club returned to the same venue in the hope of kick starting a season that had gone somewhat awry under new coach Sam Radford and while they tasted victory (as y

    PRETENDERS SENT PACKING by George on the Outer

    Fremantle, the Perth pretenders at sixth on the premiership table should have easily accounted for the Demons, sitting barely a game off the bottom of the ladder.   And for the majority of the game, it certainly looked that would be the case, until the final quarter, when the Demons stopped giving the Dockers easy chances, or making plain, dumb decisions. Not that their situation was helped by some simply appalling umpiring during the match, that kept gifting Fremantle easy scores.  Th

    ORWELLIAN by Whispering Jack

    Please permit me to begin this rather tragic pathetic preview of Melbourne’s forthcoming game against Fremantle with some personal reflections.   Two years ago, we had visitors staying with us who are all sports fans so we arranged tickets for the entire family for the Melbourne vs Fremantle game at the MCG. The Dockers were struggling at the time while the Demons were on the up and up so I was fairly confident about the outcome. Naturally, we all left the ground bitterly disappointed.

    PANTSED BY THE PIES by George on the Outer

    A 41 point loss to Collingwood, combined with yet another meagre output from the Melbourne forwards, saw the Demons pantsed by the Collingwood in the Queens Birthday match. For the nth week in a row, Melbourne failed to produce a score that would trouble most sides - it’s inaccuracy alone was again enough to seal the outcome. If that final score of 7.15 were 15.7, the game would have been very different. That sort of output was exactly a repeat of the previous week against Adelaide, when fo

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    It is truly amazing what a difference eight days can make in the life and times of a football club. It was a little over a week ago that the Casey Demons side were literally crushed into submission by the Werribee Tigers at Avalon Airport Oval. The losing margin in that game was not huge but the way they struggled to produce and cohesion in their play was obvious for all to see.  On Sunday at Casey Fields as part of heritage week, the team wore the Springvale FC jumper and made its own turn

    TEN YEARS AFTER by Whispering Jack

    There are many who would argue that Melbourne’s current woes go back a full decade to their Queens Birthday engagement of 2009 when the Demons selected a young VCE student Jack Watts to make his debut on the MCG in front of what was expected to be the club’s biggest crowd for a game described as the club’s “grand final in June”. That was the way of the world for the Dean Bailey coached Demons. The critics were skeptical of Melbourne’s decision to put a wet behind the ears schoolboy (albeit

    TOP END HEADING SOUTH by George on the Outer

    The Demons headed north for their annual game in Darwin, but the disappointing outcome could only mean they are heading south with the all too familiar failings happening again. A Sam Weideman mark and kick for goal with only 30 seconds remaining in the match could have won it for the Demons, but the kick slid sideways and the team went down by two points.  Sam may have been devastated, but the fact that the team could only kick 1 goal 8 behinds in the final quarter lays the blame at the fe

    MAYDAY by KC from Casey

    There’s not very much that can be said of the lacklustre performance of the Casey Demons at Avalon Airfield Oval against the Werribee Tigers on Saturday other than that it was woeful. There were however, a few small rays of hope for Demon fans, the main one being the display of defender Steven May from injury and to a lesser extent, Kade Kolodjashnij’s return after two months recovering from the effects of concussion. May was in stellar form down back, taking intercept marks, disposing of t

    POINT OF NO RETURN by the Oracle

    Conventional wisdom says that a club reaches the point of no return in the AFL competition if it has won less than four matches at the mid point of the season.  What this means for Melbourne is that in order for it to remain in the race for a top-eight position, it must start winning games now. Moreover, It's not enough to win the next game but it must also start stringing wins together to make up for its deficit in both wins and percentage.  With so much at stake there will be no excu

    A REAL DOWNER by KC from Casey

    When Sam Weideman kicked his third goal at the midpoint of the second quarter of Casey’s game at Downer Oval , Point Gellibrand on Sunday, he put his team 26 points ahead of the goalless Seagulls. Buoyed by the return from injury of Weideman and a number of other AFL-listed Melbourne players including Jordan Lewis, Mitch Hannan, and Jay Kennedy Harris and an impressive start to Jake Lever’s second game on return from his ACL surgery, the Demons were seemingly on top of the world. Lewis and

    ANOTHER GIANT PROBLEM by George on the Outer

    On top of its injury problems Melbourne ran into an “in-form” GWS Giants at the MCG in a game which, apart from a final quarter junk-time spree served to highlight the club’s current problems. There’s a virtually non-existent forward line; a plethora of VFL standard players, who might be getting plenty of game experience but most will simply not be up to AFL standard; an inability to kick straight and an ability to waste simple opportunities so that they mustered up only one goal in the fir

    GIANT HEADACHE by The Oracle

    It seems so long ago that Melbourne took an unchanged line up into a game on the MCG against the Greater Western Sydney Giants and cleaned them up to the tune of 45 points.  In truth, the event occurred literally half a season ago in the final home and away round of the 2018 season and marked the Demons’ return to the finals with more triumphs to come in the weeks ahead. Of course, back then, it was the Giants who were wracked with injuries as they stumbled into the finals series facing the
