#35 Matt Guelfi - Welcome to the Midfield


#62

Couple of big goals from outside 50 that went a fair distance beyond the target.

Could he be a shut down mid that can score as well.

I like it when persistance is rewarded.


#63

well let’s hope Guelfi doesn’t play on from a set shot out in front


#64

Imagine the population of Nutsland. What a dump state.


#65

Looks like the next Howlett, hope he can become a solid contributor just like bobcat.


#66

As pointed out above looks the ideal replacement for Bags.

Looks decent overhead and doesn’t take his eye off the ball, nice disposal without being outstanding and looks to be a one touch player below his knees which gives him time.

Good solid pick.


#67

Getting the sense he would be a direct Bags replacement. Focused, tough, elite skills and speed off the mark, and extremely strong defensively and in the air. I can see him running off his opponent and slotting one from 60!


#68

Dont understand the Bags tag, I think he is midfielder like Parish


#69

His highlights were super impressive on the AFL website.

Then I find out that those were from the WAFL… WOW.


#70

Ready to go


#71

Not a lot of those highlights were in traffic like he will see at AFL level.

He looks a clean player but at WAFL level you are going to get time to dispose of it, much the same as VFL level.

He looks a little vanilla to be considered any more than a part time mid but could become a very valuable role player.


#72

You might be right but it can sometimes be easier for kids like this with AFL experienced players like Myers and Heppell helping him out


#73

Automatically becomes the longest kick on our team.
(with JoeDan)


#74

Sides have about ten or more rotations so he only has to be able to play a role which is just what we want.

I like him. Just not going to get expectations up on him being anything more than serviceable.

I think he’s a good pick.


#75

And Myers.


#76

Seems like Myersey has lost a bit of that that long kick action.


#77

Yeah, didn’t see it much in the seniors but given an opportunity at VFL level he was having a ping from outside 50.

It’s probably more team instructions that we don’t see much of it any more. Probably a good thing.


#78

Findow in our premiership window?


#79

Looks very good. Very nice kick.


#80

Yep put on some muscle, Bags replacement.Quicker witg a longer kick.


#81

What I take from his highlights is that he never misses a target, never makes a poor decision, has elite disposal, can win his own ball, can defend and do the 1%ers and go forward and kick a goal.

Based on that, Hep has a lot of work to do to win back the captaincy and his spot in the team from Guelfi.
