Hope Mrs Davey has some taller genes than her husband!
Quiet week this week. NeitherNeagle or Thompson played, not sure why.
Clothier 17 touches at 53% effective, 3 marks, 2 tackles, kicked 1.1 in a win against a Boyd-less Eastern. Pretty low-possession game as a whole, not many guys reached the 20 touch mark, so probably better than it sounds. And it was at ■■■■■■ Craigieburn so I'm sure it was a howling gale which absolutely destroys everyone's kicking. Stupid place to build a footy ground.
Both Calder and Murray made the finals, so all three of the TAC guys (assuming Thompson and Neagle come back from wherever it is they were this week...) will be playing at Pricefixer Park on the weekend for anyone who wants to take a look.
Bit of Harvey Daniher news - played 14 games in the Riverina u17s this year for 18 goals and 5 times in the best. As a Riverina kid he might be zoned to the Bushrangers and get some TAC Cup time that way - he's got another 2 years before he's draftable though. Just going from memory though, if the stats are to be believed he's currently doing better than Neagle did at the same age in a similar country league.
Matthew Neagle is playing seniors at Walla at the moment, at age I think 15 or 16. 4 games for 2 goals and once in the best in the seniors, 2 games for 2 goals and once in the best in the reserves, 14 games for 2 goals and 3 times in the best in the u17s.
Nathan Neagle (who I think is 16-17 at the moment) has played 15 u17 games for 3 goals and 3 times in the best. Played one senior game too.
Jaxon Neagle (yes, with an 'x') is 14 or so, and has played 18 u17 games for 5 goals and 6 times in the best plus 4 u14 games for 3 goals.
(I haven't sat down and matched up all the dates of the games the Neagles' have played, but I suspect they're playing 2 games a weekend each at least some of the time, which will affect their performance. If they get into the Murray system then the Bushrangers fitness staff will soon put a stop to that nonsense...)
