Welcome to Demonland Josh Schache

Have no idea if this will come to fruition or even come out in the media and I put it down to pure speculation.

Was just having coffee with a few mates who I hadn't seen for a while and one of them is heavily involved with the Murray Bushrangers under 18's as a development coach.

We were speaking about the junior talent and then got talking about this year's trade period.

Out of the blue he mentioned that apparently we've shown some interest in Josh Schache and have had chats to Josh and his management? 

I would like to think I can trust his word purely that he's got contacts within recruiting circles and Josh being an ex bushie.

I have own opinion on this and I honestly don't think it's the right fit even though we're lacking a key forward.

Reminds me so much of Weideman in terms of their AFL journey.

All the natural talent in the world (he's a beautiful kick) but can't put it together in the seniors for multiple weeks.

He did play an excellent game as a defender against us in one those COVID lock down games in 2021 so perhaps the club has a long memory.

If it's true it doesn't make sense to me.

We have Weideman and Brown who lack the physical presence imo and it doesn't make sense when Goodwin has a mantra of getting in players who are genuine competitors and compete.

Then again, at the time I thought we did the right thing by staying away from Peter Wright..

If Schache came in to fill the depth spot left by Mitch Brown then I don't absolutely hate it tbh.

He'd come in on minimum chips and would expect to play mostly VFL IMO.

They can't all be zingers...

True.

Probably good way to look at it.

Fair call, BUT if they did pull the trigger on Petty forward and JVR comes in too then all of a sudden we have a couple of absolute mongrels inside 50.

Yeah true. As you said as well he'd be some pretty talented depth if he came cheap, he just strikes me as a guy who would frustrate me often!

Didn't he play a couple of games down back for the Dogs? As I recall he was at least useful in that role.

As a forward ....... well he makes a good defender.

Haven't followed him closely, but he's definitely more of a swingman now.

In saying that, finished the year off in the VFL with a few big bags of goals.

Absolutely, we'd have to have very low expectations. I'd just see him as a younger Mitch Brown. Will be good for Casey, might play an AFL game or two, but that would be about it.

I'd really love to know if we put any work into Wright, because he has been an absolute steal by Essendon.

We were keen in his draft year.

When GCS let him go it was effectively a salary dump for a big contract.  Traded for a 4th round future pick.

Doubt we could have absorbed his salary.  Had TMc or ANB trades eventuated we may night have been able to.  Water under the bridge now.

He should have got that free in the GF. A sliding doors moment. I think we must only be looking at him as a possible replacement for Petty if Petty goes forward. I would not mind him as our third tall intercept mark down back.

I'm not entirely sure we were actually that keen?

One of Wright's weaknesses in his junior days was his perceived lack of competitiveness, in other words he was soft and we barely showed interest?

During this period Paul Roos and Todd Viney had a mantra of only drafting players who were highly competitive and driven. Which makes sense why we had Jake Lever rated as a potential top 3 talent.

    PICKET FENCE'S TRAINING REPORT REHAB  Clarry, Max, Farris-White, Melky, Matt Jefferson, Jakey Lever, Joel Smith & 1 Other I couldn't place. Glad to see the Club being ultra cautious with Clarry's thumb BUT the fact he is still troubled with it is worrying (God I hate Selwood) Got there at 10.50 to see Full match Simulation Game between the Blues and the Whites. Quite clearly the Blues were the A Team and the Whites were the possibles. Some interesting faces in the white Team h

    TOUGH KENT'S TRAINING REPORT I journeyed out to Casey today and was fortunate enough to watch two quarters of match simulation. Here is a brief rundown of random occurrences/thoughts. First of all, there was no Jake Lever (ankle) or Joel Smith involved. AMW is still in rehab and was running strongly. It was Blue (Probables) v Red (Possibles) JvR was in blue. Ben Brown, T-Mac, Hibbo and Tom Sparrow were in red. Gus Brayshaw started at half back for blue and stayed there all game.

He’s moving incredibly well.  Some observations from a match sim drill that lasted about 15-20 mins. The purpose se
