An article in the AGE today about Maurice JNR for those that want to go check it out. Positive article, they did say he is no speed Demon, (are they being polite and mean slow?). Anyway we have a 3 year wait to see if he makes it. Don't think SNR was quick by the way, he just weaved his magic and they couldn't touch him.

enjoyed the article immensely ;D

15 disposals as a 14 yo, against the best kids a year older is pretty impressive.

The kid would be under some pressure/expectation given his old man's CV.

go son.

Must have only 6-7 when his dad sadly passed away in 2010. 2020 isn't that far away. Will only be 3-4 yeas behind the current young mosquito fleet. Long way to go but possibly some father sons to shine in the yellow and black with Naish almost certain to be picked up in this years draft.

I read that last night. Good to see they've deleted the reference to Maurice being a "pivotal" part of the 1980 flag. ::)

Poor kid. Is this a PRE record? A dedicated thread for a 14yo ?

I don't think so.
FS qualification under the old rules ran out for Freo as from 31st October 2015. 20 years from the expansion clubs inception.
Then a FS must qualify for games played for Freo (not the affiliated clubs prior to this 20 year rule)
Maurice didn't play any games for Freo so Jr is ours if he sees fit to nominate us

*Until 31 October 2015, Fremantle could select any player whose father has made 150 WAFL appearances prior to 1995 for East Fremantle, South Fremantle, Perth or Swan Districts.*

Get more Riolis, Richos, Rances and Riewoldt. Basically, use every second draft pick on guys whose surname begins with R.
