Casey coach Taylor Whitford has confirmed that Campbell Hustwaite has joined the Casey Demons for the 2024 season.

Hustwaite was with Collingwood VFL for five seasons and co-captained the Pies for the last three years with another Magpie VFL stalwart, Lachlan Tardrew.

He came from the Dandenong Stingrays and is still only 23 years of age. Standing at 184cm, he has been highly regarded as a midfielder and for his leadership going all the way back to his TAC Cup days.

“He is the type of player who bleeds for the club he represents and if you want midfielders with grunt and tenacity, Hustwaite seems a great value option. He might not be flashy like some others, but his contested work and leadership is something clubs should take into account when considering players who could improve the culture of a club.”  - Campbell Hustwaite

He trained with the Magpies for an AFL opportunity during this summer’s pre-season supplemental selection period (SSP) and, from all accounts, was close to winning a place on their list. 

I think it’s a great selection for Casey given the loss of such a great VFL campaigner in Jimmy Munro. Hustwaite should go a long way towards filling the immense void of talent and experience left by Munro’s departure and by playing with one of the competition’s strengths should do his AFL aspirations no harm.

Its a double win as if melbourne are looking for a inside mid depth/replacement come midseason draft time he would already be in the system and know many of the players.

I watched Caleb Lewis in the ammo's last year. The kid is a serious talent. Beveridge borrowed him for 5 games in the VFL which cost St Bedes a spot in the finals. That is such a good pick up

Agree @Older demon a smart pickup. I think he’s one to watch this year. Played juniors at Sandy Dragons and was impressive. Key defender who also can go forward and kick goals.  Had 2 years at amateur level and building up his frame.

With Gus' list spot likely to be taken via an additional pick at the mid season draft (?), could Roan Steele get a look in? 

Has always impressed me - has composure by the bucket load and seems to consistently be a player who gets them going when they're down

Agree. Definitely not a downhill skier. Judging by his game against the VFL Bulldogs in the Elimination final last season. Kicking 5 goals out of a team total of ten was an impressive performance. Considering most of momentum was going the opposite way.

Would like to know the body weight too. Gives an idea of the physical stature of the player. 

Newton’s laws of the motion can’t be applied without the mass. Maybe the people who are running ‘the show’ should supply sideshow mirrors.

Roan Steele. Absolutely would be on a list of players for addition in mid season draft.  His improvement is great to see. He is young, smart, fit and loves a goal.  Would already be ahead of Chandler, Spargo etc in my eyes.

The AFL has adopted a policy of not releasing the body weights of individual players. Apparently, this has something to do with not body shaming fat or thin footballers so the media only gets supplied with height figures. Please don’t get me started on this one.

    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
