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


#82

I thought Ozario was eaten by a dingo as a baby.


#83

Yeah, but then he ate his way out of the dingo. Finishes fights.


#84

Love his work as Chief Wiggum


#85

This pick has so much of Cale Hooker about it.

A few similarities…

  • Taken a year after they were draft eligible
  • Taken late in the draft
  • Skinny tall bean poles
  • Ridiculed on BBlitz when drafted
  • Can Clunk.

I will be watching Zerks first few years with real intrigue. Can see him taking up a Key Defence role in 3-4 years.

SANFL grand final with Houlihan and BZK.

From a HS article…

The 195cm Bomber was originally a ruck-forward, but Essendon’s recruiters were the ones who suggested he move into defence early last year, with great success

This is fascinating

Wonder what the rationale was there … genuinely thought he might be better as a defender or trying to have him slip perhaps as fwd/rucks seen as more valuable.

In any case the fact he can play both ends & pinch hit in ruck an added bonus


#88

Love that he is not a random pick but someone we’ve watched closely


#89

Can’t wait for the forward or back arguments.


#90

BZERKER WITH EXTRA CHEESE PLEASE.


#91

He was the selection we took the least time in making aswell, fair to say we rated him a lot higher than 66


#92

But not higher than 49…


#93

Why do you hate Jordan Houlahan so much?


#94

Or possibly we did rate him higher than 49, but were confident nobody else rated him higher than 66.


#95

Welcome Zerkel


#96

There are no ‘random picks’


#97

195cm is questionable based on that neck.

Think Langford might have a run for his money.

#98

McNernan make Langford look like Gladstone Small by comparison.


#99

Oh yeah, bring it Zerk!!

Zerk: Whoooaaah dude, that’s excellent!!!


#101

Looks like we will actually be developing him as a key forward
