Mature aged recruits hidden gem longshots


#321

Nick. HIND.


#322

Aaron Heppell is a definite for me, should have rookies him last year. At worst would be a good replacement small defender for Baguely, have a feeling he’d offer a lot more than that though.
Nick Hind is also a good shout, and maybe Boyse.


#323

A Hepp didn’t even play the full vfl season, and I’m not sure what exactly he offers anyway.
Smallish, slowish, poor skills. Reasonably good in a contest. There’d be 5 guys I’d take first from our vfl side


#324

Yep.

Hepp A’s window was last year.

Sadly he missed.

Then got injured.

And I think the moment has passed.


#325

Fark, you’ve been a busy boy on here of late L2L :joy:
Have you even slept since Saturday??


#326

I think this year and how the game is currently played had proven az would’ve been a bad pick


#327

Not really sure what you mean there. So long as there are small forwards, there will be a need for small defenders.
Plus, didn’t his Rookie spot go to Yestin Eades? Can’t have ended any worse than that.

McGrath will move into the midfield and Baguely is 30, we will need someone to take over that role. Yes he was injured this year, that does happen on occasion, but I saw enough in his B&F year last year.
He’s only 22, wants it, has shown lots of improvement over his time. Don’t get the slow claims either. May not be Usain Bolt, but he’s no plodder. Showed some ability as a midfielder at the end of 2016 as well.

SEAN GREGORY made VFL team of the year I see!

Much underrated player when he was with us.

< I think I was his only supporter, and that because I felt sorry for him>

As a small defender Ben McNiece would be ahead of him on attributes that transalte to AFL level. If we were going to get another mature aged small defender in the lock down mold they would want to at least project as good as McNiece if not better. And if we are drafting him as a midfielder he would want to have shown more than “some ability” given there are guys who regularly tear it up at state level (which he may if he plays as a mid next VFL season).

To be honest this sounds like romanticism on your part (and while I’m not against giving family of players and past players a little leeway they still need look like they have that next step).

Asthma attack all last night bro. Sick as a dog.

Blitz and the Package are getting me through…


#331

Bound to be some bias, granted. I’ve only really seen Bombers VFL games and I was very impressed with him in 2016.


#332

Take good care of yourself, that is pretty frightening stuff.


#333

Thanks very much


#334

I don’t know he was ever a thing other than on Blitz.


#335

He’s been pretty poor in 2017, albeit coming off a long injury lay-off.

Interesting that Holmes has also been poor.


#336

He hardly played all year due to quite a serious injury IIRC. Navicular maybe? He was only right to play in the back end of the year.


#337

Mitch Grigg won the Magarey tonight


#338

Is he still a sh.it-head?


#339

Never was


#340

Forgive my ignorance Aceman but what sorta player is he? I’d assume you’ll know a bit about him being from Norwood?
