Welcome to Essendon - Lewis Hayes

Pushed too hard and had a massive lactic acid build up. Good quality that he is willing to push himself so hard.

The pick makes sense to me. It’s an area of the field we need to look at. Reid is no certainty to be the player we hoped so we can’t just assume he will make it. Welcome Lewis!

Totally agree. We can always trade to bring in a key defender that has development under their belt. We really need dynamic players.

He’s a good player. If we didn’t already have Reid I would be really happy.

Reid looks like he’s got the physique to become a gorilla defender. I like having 2x 200cm backs. Just need to hope the new development focus works and our kids kick on.

What first year draftee doesn’t? He will add the necessary bulk, all in good time.

Welcome Lewis.

Looks the goods. Great kicking efficiency. Not hard to like.

Yes, he’s Victorian and spent 2 years in lockdown.

When it became clear we could use this pick on a ‘live’ selection my immediate thoughts were tall, KPD.

I think the intent is spot on with Lewis. Is he the best player for this role? Dunno
