#30 B. Zerk-Thatcher - Carlisle minus the tatts and the sooking


#182

Question for anyone - How many kids have we lost to another club through lack of opportunities? And have actually gone on to make it?

Ted Richards was 22/23 when he left for Sydney. Been on EFC list for 5 years. Played 33 games.


#183

Bachar Houli… would Jenkins qualify??

Ummm … :thinking:


#184

I reckon he’ll be behind Francis all things being equal.


#185

Yep as would Stephen Milne and Adam Kingsley.


#186

Alex Morgan


#187

No they wouldn’t.


#188

Edwards


#189

get him in, cant see what he couldnt offer that Mitch Brown does.


#190

People overrate kids time and time again

Mitch Brown did a superb job on Josh Jenkins rd1 who then went and pantsed Alex Rance

When our entire side was playing rubbish footy rd2 & rd3 it left our defence under pump. Also pretty sure his opponent was goalless however vs Dogs.

Zerk looks a talent but they aren’t going to put him in ahead of his time against the big boys at AFL level just yet. But hopefully he can push up over the next few years.


#191

playstyle looks like carlisle but with the work ethic and couragoeusness of future captian andy mcg and no tattoos or whiney attitude.

Needs another year and another pre-season

KP stocks looking good again.


#192

Yes, you’re right of course ! It’s 6’4.77", which is near enough to 6’5". Don’t know where I got the extra 4 inches. Inflation…


#193

About 20kg.


#194

How big was Hurley when he debuted and did the number on Tredrea?


#195

Different body types. Hurly was chunkier.


#196

Gleeson has become a regular and surely isn’t much bigger


#197

Gleeson is supposedly 86kg which makes him 5 cm shorter but 8kg heavier


#198

Moves a bit like Peter Berbakov. I like the look of him, but he is obviously a few years away with that body shape and kicking action.


#199

True. Hurley is listed as 190cm 90kg according to 2008 draft info.

Zerk is 195, 78kg. That’s quite a difference.


#200

Closer to Fletch. And not far from Mason.


#201

Personally he reminds me of a young Paddy Ryder when Sheeds was playing him CHB. A few cm’s shorter obviously. Might be just the number 30 and physique thats doing it.
