Nice set of dukes and good seize ……let’s hope he gets a chance
This explains where Rhett’s rookie vacancy came from.
Welcome to the team, I hope you have a long and successful career in the red & black.
@aceman, what do you think of this pick? Can he defend? Can he play small, or is he only a 3rd tall defender?
Someone knew we were interested.
Brett Montgomery will never get welcomed to Essendon
Big bodied midfielder that everyone wanted. Dodoro strikes with the last pick…192cm too.
Is that question rhettorical?
I’ve seen very little evidence that he can play a lockdown role. He is a rebounding third man type but that’s not to say he can’t be given a different role
How would you rate him generally? Happy we drafted him?
If he can translate this to the AFL we could have a player here
In all honesty I’m not super excited. He is a good kid and has some good traits but I’m not 100% he can translate that form to the AFL. I think he will be backup only but if he can add a few more strings to his bow then perhaps he could end up as a decent role player
To be fair, sometimes that move from part time to full time training can make a large difference to performance.

I guess the Rhett-tension is over … or just begun
Wow EFC actually goes back to using the rookie draft to give a mature player a chance at the big time. Like a few before him, they can work out well. Pig Hibberd and Baggers were a couple of notable examples . Nic Martin, a PSSS rookie last year was a revalation.
Not a lot of hype for Rhett so far. Reckon he could play some games next year though.
