He is the logical choice to come in for Cotch, let's hope he grabs the opportunity as there certainly is one boith now and in the future. He is only 21 and appears too good for VFL. Personally I have hiogher hopes for Dow, and Sonsie also appears to have much greater long term scope but Ross has size and experience on those two.

As others suggest I hope its not a wing that he plays despite wanting to see Marlkion in the guts. Against the Cats I think we need KMac and Marlion controlling the wings. Isaac Smith has always troubled us.
I'm a Ross fan when he's inside mid and with cotch out, Ross is a great replacement. Dusty IN for Clarke.
I'm not sure about kpd. Miller in good form in the VFL so should reward that. I mean KPFs have been doing well against us lately and we still find a way to win.

True TF but he looked a lot better than RCD.
Looks like a bust to me unfortunately. For his size he's just not strong enough at the ball. Out of contract, will be interesting to see what we do. He starts next year as a 23yo.

I think we all had such high hopes of him being our big bodied midfielder but not to be by the look of it

The way many on here apply the ruler on Ross is ridiculous. He was pick 43, last pick of the 2nd round and is performing better than most players taken around that pick and is basically what you would expect for a kid taken at that pick.
Is starting to dominate at VFL which is the stepping stone to being a solid contributor at AFL. You don’t just throw kids like him away.

Especially considering the path a number of our revered premiership heroes have taken

Born Feb 2000, so starts next year's season as a 23yo, unless my info is wrong.
Edit: I think I see the confusion, I was referring to RCD, not obvious in my initial reply.

I thought Dow, RCD would overtake him this year. Not so. I'd like to retain Dow and Ross. RCD just hasn't developed to an AFL level

Any chance that the club can play him onball, rather than on the wing or half back if they bring him into the seniors?

Pretty sure that's where he's been playing in the seconds.

A lad who has the goods to be a steady AFL player if only consistently picked to play in a position he can grow into instead of moving him all over the ground.

Hope he plays midfield. He has the body to help Prestia.
I also want to see Pickett in there to ‘hurt’ some bodies.

The next month will be the biggest in his career. If he has a good month he will get a very decent contract. And Cotchin might see the writing on the wall.

If he is poor will be getting a one year deal on basic pay with incentives.

I doubt he'll get more than a shade beyond the minimum and unless he somehow goes up 2 or 3 levels, I can't imagine his play forcing any decision on Cotchin's future. Ross has a lot of ground to make up and not a lot of time.
