Settle down .
Hes played in a backline tonight that had the ball coming in quicker than Usain Bolt.
Will be a good player for us .

I’m still wanting to invest in him. We just need to get 50 games into his ASAP.

Worth persisting. Some things he did smacked of inexperience, our backline was not functioning as well as it can and the delivery from unpressured GWS centreline players makes defence damned difficult.

Agree. And think he’ll be one of the odd men out particularly if Stack and Rioli stay down back.
Wouldn't complain if Stacka had a big pre season n had a runaround in the midfield. That'd leave a little hole in the backline for Nigel to fill.

Broad replaces Mansell.
Then there is Balta. Takes Garthwaite.
We need a replacement for Astbury.
Should we looking at Daniel Talia for a couple of seasons until we can find or develop another long term KPD or two. Grimes and Astbury on wrong side of 30. Balta is all we have otherwise.

Garthwaite is no good and Miller hasn’t played a game in 4 years so that tells you all you need to know. Biggie is a rookie and extreme long shot you’d think. Regardless we need to get something coming through in this area.

I would have no problem with getting Talia. Will be cheap and fills a need.

Worked for the Hawks with Brian Lake. Would come cheapish as well.

Man, we jump off our youngsters so quickly these days.

Kid was playing SANFL less than a year ago. Yeah, he had a *smile* game, but so did everyone else.

Another preseason and see how he goes.

Playing in a hopelessly out of from team makes it hard to shine especially when at best you are a blue collar worker bee. Worth persevering with next season

Just signed for two years. This is very good news as I thought he did very this season.
