Deven Robertson (Drafted by Brisbane)



Recommended Posts

Jason Taylor mentioned him as a candidate for pick 8 but I couldn't find a thread for him.

He has very strong connections to WCE.  He barracked for them in his youth, his uncle Darren Glass captained them and is now at the Eagles as their List Manager. Robertson and WCE

Very highly regarded in this draft but WCE don't have a high pick to get him nor did they try to get one.  Maybe they are happy to bide their time, let him do his early development elsewhere and 'bring him home' when ready to replace Hurn.

WA has good draft representation this year with 3 likely top 10 prospects: Jackson, Henry and Robertson.  If recruited interstate I wonder how many will be back in WA in a few years...

I've been away for a while and thought of posting a 'Deven Robertson' thread for quite some time, better late than never with this post. I genuinely find it astounding that he's not more regularl

Is his name really Deven? Is that even a name?  

Can’t believe the afl hasn’t matured from the go home factor. Professional footballers wanting to go home.  Getting paid half a mill a year and you miss your mates and mum? Grow up!

Why would he be understudy to Nic Nat?  He's only 182cm tall.  I believe Luke Jackson might be the one you're thinking of there.

But I'd be skittish about taking him.  Sounds like he has plenty of links to the Eagles and would be a prime candidate to go home.  I think we can look elsewhere at our picks.

A typo - I meant Hurn and edited the post a minute or two after it went up.

Are there stats on how many top liners do return home to WA?

I'm not aware of any stats.  Some recent examples are B Hill, Kelly, Hogan and McCarthy when he was thought to be a top liner.

While it may not be a draftees intention, these days clubs seem to lobby hard to get top players back to their 'home state' if not in the early part of their career as per those above, then as their Free Agency date arrives and they get them for free.  Lynch to Tigers but one example.

Depends if West Coast want them or not.  I reckon if WCE chase a player they will get them 7 out of 10 times.  Freo take what they can get

It really degrades the pick when weighing up the player. Good for WA clubs in particular with the tyranny of their 4 hour trip each way. It must make it harder to go home for a weekend if the club physios and doctors tell them they dont want them on a plane for 8 hours.

Wish there was some packaged vision.  I couldn't find a scerick last time i searched.

Maybe Freo are after him and have stolen all footage!

i think the thing is that a lot of players aren't drafted out of wa that much anymore - only 14 across national, psd, rookie, and mid-season draft in 2019 (and four of those to wa-based clubs) 

if a player is good - see kelly, hogan, yeo - then they often do return 'home'

I reckon it's closer to 6.7 times out of 10.

Certainly a decent chunk of WA's best players either play in the state or return home. 

From that team: Hamling, Jetta, Hill*, Kelly, Jamie Cripps, Josh Kennedy, Yeo have all gone home. 

The first 4 names there are Indigenous players who I think it's fair to say have stronger community/family links than most players. 

Cripps and Yeo were at very ordinary clubs when they went home. Kennedy didn't want to leave Carlton and was packed up for Judd. 

O'Meara moved to Victoria, Coniglio came close to doing the same, Buddy went to Sydney and Charlie Cameron went to one of his original homes.

Deven Robertson looks tough, resilient and no fuss, the type of kid who will stay loyal if you give him a strong club. Shuey, Gaff, Hurn..plenty of non West Aussies stick it out in Perth. I wouldn't be too worried even with uncle Darren at the Eagles. In fact I reckon it would be hard if not impossible for Glass to excuse himself from list management decisions involved in trading for his nephew, in many ways it makes a trade less likely.

So forget about the go home factor and just ask if this kid is the next Joel Selwood or the next Andrew Swallow. That's the likely range of his talents and if he's the next Selwood then sign him up, if he's the next Swallow then thanks but no thanks.

From the little I've seen (watched the u18 grand final in a game where Henry, Jackson, Kemp, young, serong, flanders and ash all played), I would be happy to pick him up at 8. His performance that day was outstanding - all I could see was Selwood in terms of his toughness, leadership, and defensive acts. Seems to know his limitations, doesn't try too much. Can kick, but not brilliantly. Good distributor by hand. Would question whether he is a need for us given our inside mids but irrespective I would be very surprised if he doesn't hit the ground running for whatever club drafts him next year. 

Also thought Henry and Jeremy Sharp were very impressive in that game. Sharp in particular could be the best player from this draft in 5 years. Young, ash and serong all underwhelming (Serong will bust IMO, looks like the type to have peaked as a teenager).

I was sold on Young until I watched this game. Only one game but definitely showed his weaknesses and in comparison to Ash, lack of run. 

Would LOVE Henry as he is everything we need. Such a shame he is academy tied. I could also see the bones of Jackson as a fwd ruck, but not a gamble I would take at 3. 

Would love Kemp at 3 or 8. Could be anything. 

Do not understand the fascination with Flanders. Might have some tricks one day but an all around meh package at the moment. 

Would encourage you all to watch it on the AFL website, just google Vic country vs WA.

I watched the game too, and can't disagree too much with your summary.

Really liked the look of Robertson and Sharp, he will be a player and so will Jackson.

I wouldn't write Young off just on that game, he's better than that. Some of the other ones you mentioned were indeed underwhelming and I wonder if it was because it was the end go the finals and they were all knackered.

If we picked up any of Robertson, Young, Kemp, Sharp or Jackson I'd be happy.

Freo should grab him at pick 10.


We’d be developing him to package up for the Eagles.   No from me.

After watching that grand final I believe Young is a certainty for pick 3. That kick of his in the dying minutes of the game showed his real class. All players were dead on their feet but he played on after a superb tackle and drilled a 40m pass to his team mate on the run. 

I would not be surprised if we split pick 8. There were many good players that might be still around in the teens. I agree with the ones fr-ap have mentioned. Sharp was very very good as was Robertson. Loved Kemp's second half. Jackson's ground work is excellent for a big man but his kicking sucks.

You wouldn't pay pick 8 for Andrew Swallow's career? You have got to be kidding. 

If that was actually the range of his talent there is now way he would last to pick 8.

Swallow had an excellent career but he never had the talent of an elite mid, hence was never AA. We have plenty of guys right now with a similar skill set. Brayshaw, Oliver, Viney etc

Unless he has injuries/awful development I'd say the floor on Robertson's talents - Larke medalist, by all reports excellent leader and hard worker is about the Swallow level in terms of talent. Might not captain a club, win B+F's and play 190 odd games but that's about the level and if he's a scrubby kicker and lacks athleticism like Swallow did then no thanks.

3 best and fairests and 224 games, I think you might need to lower your expectations for a pick 8 (likely to slide out to 9 or 10). We have drafted Salem and Weideman around that mark with Taylor in charge. 

Back to Robertson, from what I've seen his kicking is definitely his weakness but he didn't seem to lack anything athletically.

Finally got around to watching this game and whilst it's wrong to draw conclusions from one game my thoughts were:

Robertson - in everything but his best plays were smothers or clearances when Jackson put it down his throat, probably would've liked to have seen more creativity and class with the ball

Jackson - had some lovely taps and moves really well, but stands or walks around packs which I hate and then just doesn't get down the line to useful spots to get marks - both ahead of the ball and behind the ball. Marking in general looks suspect. Can get outreached at ball ups when he bodies up rather than jumps. 

Young - rough first half when he was caught inbetween defensively and under the pump with the ball but his kicking really looked great in the second half and he broke open the game

Kemp - similar to Young, nothing early then in everything in the 2nd half up forward

Serong - has some special moments with quick hands and quick feat and a nasty tackler

Henry - pure class as a mid, I think we'd bid for him with pick 8

Sharp - the combination of size (height/strength) and athleticism make him a lock on the wing, but kicking is hot/cold and contested game does not look strong. 2nd round pick.

Elijah Taylor - wow. Didn't touch it often but when he did it resulted in scores. So much class. Would be a huge gamble at pick 8 but you could talk me in to it. He cuts through traffic like a hot knife through butter and is a beautiful kick.

Trent Rivers - thought he was best on ground, particularly for the first half. Impeccable half back ball winner and user. Should he be in the conversation for top 10?

Just one thing to keep in mind with this game is he injured his shoulder in the 2nd quarter and played through it. His kicking did seem rushed (specifically in the 3rd quarter), so I am not sure how much this may have had to do with it. Didn't play again for the year after this game due to this injury. 

Also, you missed Flanders, what did you think of his game?

Was mostly watching Robertson and Jackson at the stoppages but nothing really leapt out at me. 

The other thing I noticed was Weightman is an animal with his chase down tackles, should've had 2 or 3 holding the balls. Flies in to tackles with great intensity.

    WASH, RINSE, SPIN, REPEAT! by George On The Outer

    Although the Demons got over the line in their must win final round game against the hapless Bombers, they ensured it was Groundhog Day for their supporters who well remember what happened three years ago (although, this time they at least enjoyed the success of victory). Melbourne had its customary start dominating play and having plenty of chances in front of goal, only to find itself down on the scoreboard at the first change. Inaccurate kicking, particularly from set shots would have pu

    THE LUCK OF THE DRAW by Whispering Jack

    The long awaited clash between Melbourne and Essendon is almost upon us. Thirty-seven rounds of AFL football have passed by since the two clubs met on a balmy early April night last year in a game that produced a high scoring shootout at the MCG with the Bombers prevailing by 18 points. It was their only meeting for 2019 and happened at a time when the pandemic was something on the far distant horizon. Several months later when the 2019 season ended, the AFL issued the first of its fixtures

    THERE’S STILL A HEARTBEAT by George on the Outer

    When bottom side Adelaide scrapped together a win over the Giants last week, a tiny glimmer of hope opened up for the Demons’ finals chances. The patient was in intensive care but not quite finished — there was a faint pulse, a heart beating ever so slightly but was it enough when two more wins and other results were needed to fall their way? The first step was the resuscitation of a team that had lost its last two matches against sides then sitting fifteenth and sixteenth on the ladder. On

    On Sunday, the Melbourne Football Club that won three consecutive games by in excess of 50 points last month returns to the Gabba, the scene of the last of those victories which was a 56 point drubbing of Collingwood. The Demons got off to a good start and won every quarter with a ruthless and powerful brand of football. They kicked 16 goals that day, their accuracy in front of goal a tribute to the skills the put on display throughout the afternoon and evening. In the four matches playe

    Fremantle gave Melbourne the old heave ho’ from playing finals in 2020, in conditions that the Demons yet again failed to handle.   With the whole season on the line and the need to win to stay in contention for finals, what the fans saw was much the same as they have been witnessing so many times before — a complete debacle and capitulation against a side that sat 15th on the ladder before the game.     Promises made after the loss to the 16th placed Sydney Swans were rendered h

    A CLANGER IN CAIRNS by George on the Outer

    Having fought back into finals contention, the Demons had it all before them when facing a lowly Sydney in Cairns.  But in typical Melbourne fashion, they threw away the opportunity to cement their spot in the eight with a clanger of a game.  Right from the start, there was little to enthuse from the Melbourne players, who appeared to think that they only had to turn up, enjoy the North Queensland sun, and take away the four points.  Compared with the furious ground wide pressure of the

    TEN MINUTES LATE by Whispering Jack

    The late Norm Smith, who played in four Melbourne premierships and coached another six, was a strong disciplinarian. Known as the Red Fox for his auburn hair and his cunning, Smith was a man of a different age to the here and now. Born during the Great War, he survived the Spanish Flu Pandemic, grew up in depression times, played mostly through the Second World War and its aftermath and coached in a period of rebuilding and recovery to a time of prosperity.

    The last of this year’s indigenous games was played in the red heart of the country and could well have determined Melbourne’s finals aspirations but it was St Kilda that had its top four hopes dashed after a nail-biting finish in Alice Springs which saw them unceremoniously marched out of the position in football heaven occupied by them for much of this season.

    DO OR DIE by The Oracle

    Melbourne is, not for the first time, paying for lapses in matches whereby the club leaks multiple goals without answer and which usually cost the club in those all-important eight point games as it did last week against the Western Bulldogs which replaced the Demons in the AFL top eight. And this week, they come up against a team that reputedly plays in the same mode as the Bulldogs but has been able to prevail over better opponents than Melbourne.

    GIVE THE DOGS A BONE by George on the Outer

    The winner of the game is in the top eight and the loser out. Had Melbourne won, it would have consigned the Bulldogs season to the scrapheap given their remaining fixture which still includes a bye. The Demons led at half-time but they gave the Dogs a bone which was willingly accepted — they notched 6 goals in the third quarter and dumped the Demons out of the eight. This game simply saw all the bad habits return for Melbourne players.  When they serve up dinky kicks, dinky handballs, litt

    The Melbourne Football Club should hand out an award to the person who came up with the concept of the 20 day football frenzy the football world experienced from Round 9 to the completion of Round 12 on Monday. When the AFL fixture was moved into a state of perpetual motion, things changed so quickly that it was difficult to fathom exactly what was happening to the competition but the Demons have been one of the beneficiaries to date.
