i know it might be a little early to be making calls like these but Shane Edwards has got the tools! Other than his bad kicking at crucial stages but that will come with experience. He knows how to get to a contest and he knows were to go when he has got it, that is called vision and that is a rare comodity at Punt Road. We must fast track this kid and let him play the year out in the ones. Nice one TW!

Re: Shane Edwards is the real deal!!

Fingers crossed you are right, scotch finger. It would be good to have some positives on the radar. Edwards could be one of them. Maybe we'll see some more in coming weeks, if the Burgers boys' form holds.

I'll third that. I was very pleased to be able to nominate as his Vice President, and that he is one of PRE's sponsored players. Most impressed with the ball he managed to get out along the ground which resulted in a goal.

Re: Shane Edwards is the real deal!!

Chalk another one down here who is now a fan.

One passage of play I saw (Now having downloaded the game), Shane made the lead, gained space, and the player up the ground kicked the ball over his head, Shane kept his head, turned and got into the right position to put pressure on the opposition player who ended up with the ball.

Simply class. Will turn out to be a rare bargain (Given our drafting history) given where we picked him up.

Yeah until about round 13 by which time he will be one of the same old faces letting us down and you'll be calling for the dud to be sacked and for the 'youngsters' to come in.

In some ways it's good to be predicatable - no one is ever disapointed

Re: Shane Edwards is the real deal!!

He was much better at VFL, but that's what you'd expect of course.

He was originally projected to hit his straps in year 3 so I hope you guys don't bag the crap out of him if he takes as long as Tambling ::)

Re: Shane Edwards is the real deal!!

I reckon if we can get 12 games into him for the year that would be a good result for him and the club.

I thought he played well. I'm looking forward to seeing him develop.

Re: Shane Edwards is the real deal!!

His debut reminded me of Coughlan when he was just starting out. Like Coughlan back then, Shane didn't get a lot of it but read the play really well and was always near the contest. Shane will obviously play a different role but I just get the sense that something special is on the horizon. 8)

"missing my friends, missing Adelaide" ..........................these player thoughts should be taken into consideration when recruiting.

This is why Meyer doesn't show 100%.

Re: Shane Edwards is the real deal!!

I think it's natural enough, it's quite a change when you're 18 to come from Adelaide to Melbourne. He does say he's over the worst of it now.

I'll be even Chris Judd found life difficult at first when he moved to Perth!

They certainly aren't the first generation to have to move to play football.
