It is paywall

37. Melbourne – Sam Gilbey (Claremont/WA)

Defender, 187cm, 73kg

Jordan says: The Demons got their young forward earlier and now, given the star power and balance of its list, they can afford to take a slight risk. A risk because he is recovering from a broken leg, not because of his talent. Battled injury and Covid earlier in the year, too, but Gilbey has more class and composure than plenty of others in the draft. Reads the play so well in defence but, given the time he gives himself with ball in hand, has shown glimpses of the tall midfielder he could become.

A huge NO to anyone from W.A!!

Gruzewski will be at GWS with one of their late teen picks.

@IvanBartul13 HS phantom is the second phantom that has Sydney taking your man Josh Weddle the pick after ours. You think we are a chance to pick him up in front of them?

i trained with weddle last night, hes quick and has good size but he needs to get stronger through his arms and probably legs to become more explosive, we were in runners on a soggy track due to cricket season and it was a genuine slip and slide but he didn't seem to be hitting the deck as often as others were, didnt get to see any of his arial/contested work or much of his tight contested stuff but his general kicking skill and composure with ball in hand was clear

 Elijah Hewett plays like a Melbourne player as well

What does this mean anyway?

After a point against, he kicks out to the left to the pack and when going forward, he bombs it in to the left pocket boundary.

And then afterwards he likes to dine at a certain French Restaurant in Prahran.

Impressive determination to push through the pain barrier of decapitation. Kids made of tough stuff. Well, except his neck I guess.

Just watched the highlights of Hewett and looks like a ready made recruit who has all the tools to become a good player in the near future, pace, good sense of awareness, size and has depth in his kicking. 

The only thing I hate is he played in Collingwood colours in the West.

Also played in Brissy colours for Scotch College, Suns colours for community club Caversham and Tigers colours for WA, either way wouldn’t mind seeing him in the red and blue

There’s some character concerns stuff floating around, would you say that’s usually WA teams dropping a prospect back? Or is there something there?

I don’t know of anything and don’t think any AFL side falls for such character flaw rumours in order for local sides to have a player fall back.

The Jack Darling claims are a myth, he dropped back because he was poor in his draft year and struggled to deal with more experienced opponents.

He really didn’t interview well, for some clubs, at the combine. And I’m probably understating it.

So the top 6 seems mostly settled. 

Let's assume Jefferson to the Eagles is legit.

To me, that means Ed Allan has already been picked, let's put him to Geelong for the sake of the argument (could easily be St Kilda or Dogs):

So we've got:

7. Hawthorn: ?
8. Geel: Allan
9. WC: Ginbey
10-12: St Kilda, Carl, WB ???
13: WC: Jefferson

So 4 picks and the following 5 guys: Clark, Tsatas, McKenzie, Hollands, Busslinger.

We might have some extra homework to do if one of those guys are available. JT would've done the work on McKenzie and Hollands and be pretty happy I reckon. Probably wouldn't need to do anything on Clark, you'd just take him.

Eagles need key forwards over key backs but it would be a surprise if they pass a local tall at ground zero of a rebuild. Saints, Dogs or Blues might've pounced on Busslinger anyway.

Tsatas would be interesting, a very non Melbourne player. Trade out of the pick for a team willing to pay up, then trade back in at 19 for Barnett or George? I can see that.

    BLINK OF AN EYE by The Oracle

    In the year 2022, we learned that the fine between ultimate success in sport and failure can be measured in the blink of an eye. The Melbourne Football Club began the year where it had left off in 2021 - as the powerhouse of the AFL men’s competition.  They steamed towards the halfway mark of the season taking all before them until their winning streak of ten in a row (17 overall since the latter part of the premiership season) came to a crushing end with consecutive losses at the hands of

    CHANGES 2022 Part 03 by The Oracle

    Part Three - Comparing apples with pomegranates by The Oracle One of the truly pointless exercises after each year’s draft is the game over which club “won” the period in question. The reality is that there is no winner or loser at the time and it’s only years further down the track when a full assessment of how the picks turn out can be made, that the winning hand is revealed. And the draft results cannot be considered in isolation; you need to look at where each club stood before the

    GRAND NEW FLAG by Meggs

    Daisy was at pains to tell everyone who asked that the grand final story was NOT the Daisy Pearce story.  She wanted people to focus on the Melbourne Football Club, our wonderful players and non-playing teammates, her legacy buddy head coach Mick Stinear, the assistant coaches, the Club volunteers, the Board, the administrators, #DeeArmy, all supporters, in fact anyone who bleeds for the red and the blue.  But it is also a bit about the pioneer, role model, mother who is Daisy Pearce

    EYES ON THE PRIZE by Meggs

    The Stinear/Pearce partnership has evolved over the 7 AFLW seasons and they have built a team with talented, committed footballers who play for each other and execute a highly entertaining brand of footy. On Sunday can a premiership be added to this legacy? This may well be the last time we see Daisy in the mighty red and blue as she contemplates her start date for a coaching role ‘Down at Kardinia Park’.  Last week’s sensational sealer in the Prelim showed everybody that Daisy could s

    DAISY’S DEMON DRIVE by Meggs

    On a blustery Saturday afternoon when the conditions affected marking skills and the ball bounced unpredictably, the Mighty Dees stuck fat against a determined Kangaroos outfit to break away with two final quarter goals to none to win AFLW Preliminary Final 2 by 17 points — an all-time high winning margin between these two teams.  From the outset it was a fiercely fought contest with Melbourne unable to find the ball in space. North really amped up their one-percenters an

    NOT A MOMENT TO MISS by Meggs

    The AFLW Season 7 fixture was carefully crafted to purposely handicap the better teams and give the expansion and developing sides an easier draw.  Nonetheless, this weekend’s Preliminary Finals will showcase the Lions, Demons, Crows and Roos, teams widely accepted as the best 4 in the competition.   In Friday night’s Prelim 1 the minor premiers, Brisbane, will start warm favourites at home against Adelaide.   On Saturday afternoon at Ikon Park, Prelim 2 between Melbourne and North is

    STICK TO YOUR GUNS by Meggs

    The Dees convincingly overcome the fast-starting reigning-premiers Adelaide to win by 21 points in a fiery Qualifying Final match at Ikon Park on Friday evening.     In that first quarter Adelaide jumped out of the blocks kicking their first goal inside 20 seconds finishing with 3 goals to nil. All was quiet at Ikon Park.     Melbourne, having easily outplayed lesser opponents over the past six weeks took time to ratchet up their intensity.  But, by mid to late first quarter, the Dees be

    HEAVYWEIGHTS by Meggs

    AFLW heavyweights Melbourne and Adelaide kick off the AFLW Season 7 Final Series with a massive Qualifying Final clash at Ikon Park this Friday night at 7:10pm.  The game promises to be a cracker.   Last season’s Grand Final combatants last met in Round 1where Melbourne came away with a strong 18-point victory at Glenelg Oval. The Dees will be hoping to replicate the result and move directly to the Preliminary Final.    While Adelaide may not have been as intimidating this season as in p

    MISSED IT BY THAT MUCH by Meggs

    Congratulations to Daisy’s Dees on a huge 78-point one-sided win against West Coast in challenging windy and wet conditions at Casey Fields.     The banner celebrating Sarah Lampard’s 50 games was a victim of the wind, but nonetheless Lampy received a warm round of applause from the parochial crowd in attendance.   Melbourne has the double-chance and is excited about its chances in the Season 7 AFLW finals. If this means the Grand Final is played at Metricon and the Demond make it, then
