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


#142

I wonder how he’d go as a big bodied mid.


#143

Dodoro thinks he can transition from the backline to the midfield.


#144

don’t even joke


#145

First chance to see him.
Attack on the ball, second and third efforts, good overhead, tries to be creative with his disposal.
Agree, we’ve got one.

Give him a run this year.


#146

Finally, a #30 that isn’t laconic


#147

Key defenders until 2030: Zerk Ridley and Fletcher
Next!


#148

As time adds a bit more beef to his frame, and a bit more experience to his game, this kid could be a serious steal. Shows real promise.


#149

Looks great! Love the way he throws himself at the contest. Reckon we’ve found a gem here.


#150

Already has that inate ability to know when to leave this man to spoil.

Great overhead mark,fights for balls on the ground,pretty quick decision maker.

A few kg’s and he will be a cracker.


#151

Yep :heavy_check_mark:


#152

Will be a star. Needs to bulk up


#153

Question…based on purely quality of football…who is the better KPD prospect from here on - Zerk or Francis?


#154

It’s always hard to say. I just remember the Pears vs Rance early discussions.

I’d say Francis has the higher ceiling. I’d say Zerk is the safer bet. There is room for both in our future.


#155

Mate, he’s played 3 VFL games!
This is getting ridiculous.


#156

You wouldn’t like being a recruiter.


#157

The biggest problem we face with this kid is another club trying to poach him while he is stuck behind our senior kpds. Extend his contract and don’t play brown ahead of him for Christ’s sake.


#158

Lot to look fwd to with this kid.


#159

Did a couple of lightning intercepts in front of us, he comes out of nowhere. Great hands too.


#160

Seems pretty fearless too.

Can’t wait til he gets his timing on the leaps sorted.


#161

He was pick 67 and has played 3 vfl games. And yet he’s being talked about as the next big thing and that every other team is looking to poach him. Teams that passed on him with 66 picks just 3 games ago. After 3 vfl games in which we lost 2. He looks very promising but a long way to go before he matches up to the hype on here.
