Barracked for the Pies as a kid. Brother of Port Adelaide’s Sam Hayes.

Is he a lockdown defender??

Good luck, son.

Nah more of an interceptor but most good young key defenders aren’t drafted as stoppers

Fabulous selection.
This guy prior to COVID was flying and a likely top 3 pick and due to a few development/body issues/covid impact his 16s year was underwhelming.
He is consistent and reads the play well with excellent depth in his kicking and high efficiency.
VFL defence with Reid and Hayes will be fabulous to witness in their development together.

Can’t recall ever seeing this kid play, but I’m gonna get behind him. Good to see a new tall, lanky, ranga KPD in the sash.

A bit of an odd selection for mine, but welcome aboard Lewis. May you have a long career in the red & black which is full of personal and team success.

So why couldn’t he finish the 2km time trial?

How is 88% kicking efficiency not elite, the bar graph must have got stuck.
