#45 Conor McKenna - ELITE


#3144

So it’s your contention that without McKenna in the team we would have the best defense in the league?


#3145

Clearly struggling with the modern concept that attack is the best form of defence out of the back line.

Where are my highlights!


#3148

In the Dyson Heppell thread.


#3149

By the way this thread should be pinned as a reminder to all those who rush to stick the boots into a young developing player finding his way


#3150

Dayle Garlett 30 year contract?


#3151

I do not know what his ceiling is and I love it

Could see him gaining more size and spending time on the wing/middle

Likes to get in the opponents face which we need more of


#3152

#3153

Hird rated him a potential top 10 draft pick. ln Hird we trust for talent assessment.


#3154

Source?


#3155

Circular reference? :smirk:


#3156

Where the fark are my highlights


#3157

Clubs ■■■■■■, no wonder no player wants to come to it.


#3158

all the likes


#3159

sometimes he looks like he is completely out of touch with our game plan

this is what makes him a great addition to the list.

good job lad

I think he’s still very attached to Erin’s green valleys. Four years might have been a limit he put on the club.

But he revealed yesterday that he could be back to boost the Red Hands before he reaches his mid-20s.

“I would love to come back home and play for Tyrone,” said McKenna.

“I’ll maybe have five or six years here, but 100 per cent I want to play for Tyrone.

“I’ll have to see what happens over the next few years, but that’s’ the plan.”


#3161

Four years puts him at 25 years old so that sounds about right. We just need to find him a nice Aussie girl and we’ll keep him forever.


#3162

Depends what were paying him. Gaelic football wages are insanely low compared to afl. Would be hard for a kid of his talent to turn down the kind of money that could set him up for life. And yeah, get a Melbourne bird on his arm to seal it

Glad he’s been signed again, and i really hope he can prove he was worth the 4 years. He is on a good trajectory, I didnt think he was a lock for 4 years though given 4 years is usually reserved for only a handfull of the most reliable/marquee players. I thought Parish only signed for 3 but he might have demanded more cash or be gambling he will be worth heaps more in 3.
