Tulla 17/10/16 - coach upbeat

Not sure if this is the right place or not, but lucky enough to tour the facilities at Tulla after Essendon got us over for a mini-combine/testing on Sunday afternoon (looked to be about 20 VFL footballers/alternative talent prospects). The place is amazing! But mostly, it is the people! Everyone we met (Adrian Dodoro, Merv Keane and the recruitment and strength & conditioning staff) could not have been more accommodating.

As we had come from interstate, they were more than happy to take us on a tour after the testing, gave us some souvenirs, and dropped us at the airport. I for one hope my boy ends up at Essendon, it was an amazing experience. Maybe, as a 30 year+ supporter, I am biased, but I’d find it difficult to believe that other clubs would be able to make us feel as comfortable as Essendon did on Sunday! An awesome experience.

Can your son play KPF and kick straight?

202cm, and can bowl quick and straight, he’s a cricketer! Probably a ruck prospect.
