Batten Down The Hatches
- Sep 21, 2007
Right here, right now, that result would be the envy of a lot of clubs if it eventuated that way.GWS with three picks feel like they added at least 2 A graders, maybe three. All come with elite kicking skills, all elite footy IQ and the ability to provide run and carry.
Finn Callaghan - when GWS asked the Lord to deliver the perfect prototypical physical specimen for a midfielder after the trade with Collingwood, he parted the clouds and delivered a 190cm, 85 kg with off the charts agility and a booming left foot. More to smite Collingwood than to please GWS but what is clear is the Lord isn't a Pies supporter.
Tyler Sonsie- The coolest Tyler since Durden. Worships at the feet of Trent Cotchin. That's enough to draft him. Add in he has forgotten what foot he kicks with and loves a goal he's the perfect foil for Finn, Tom Green and Tim Taranto. Top 5 talent in this draft.
Josh Fahey- We take him despite those Southern clubs trying to kidnap him. And we take him to remind everyone that our Academy will annoy you forever. Run and carry, he's not too dissimilar to Lachie Ash who was a top 5 pick. We take him and laugh.
This is a draft that we will look back on and consider it a cornerstone of the next ten years. A++.
