Bully if your out there, is Balta the one you believe is a better forward ? On the small vision I just saw I like him as a defender, though I’m happy to go with your judgement

My favourite pick. Agree with Colombo. I see some Rancey traits, but he could be a ruck or CHF or some Richo type wingman.

If he has some ego, all the better coz the great ones often ooze it.

I was thinking that too. Seems to have the dash and style of a young Alex, not as hard at it as Rancey (not many are though) and for self preservation not necessarily a bad thing as long as he's willing to go when it's his turn

I can only assume that the club were not too concerned about his headspace then...
Really moves well and doesn't look timid.
Actually, one of the things I find pleasing about all of the talls in this crop is that they appear confident in the air.
It should be a given for big guys, but is a trait that has not be present often enough in our picks for these types over the years.
Looks like he will be handy at either end in time. I don't know what it is, but have a good feeling about this kid

Good luck Noah

The boys on the junior footballers thread were all over this. This is why we trawl PRE for insight above all else.

Well done, lads. :clap

Good attack on the footy and run out of defence.

Can roost the ball too and has pace.

Love this selection, Really has a massive upside and even though most are saying Defender - I like him as a foward

Natural forward, lucky to get him at 25, been stuffed around by clueless state coaches. With his athletic specs the sky's the limit.

Thanks Bully. Do you think the rumoured non love of the game is the reason he was available at 25 ? Watching him now gee he moves well.
