Yeh, they are not VFL standard. Its why a guy like Eggs is doing so well, the pressure is just not there. This is not a strong tigers VFL side and we haven't exactly been tearing the opposition apart.This looks a pretty ordinary GWS reserves side.
The best off the ground was the guy who selected our bench. Henderson, Elliot, Soligo and Durham would be very pleased if this was a draft result.
Give the man/woman some praise.
Elliot plays in the NAB for Oakleigh, very reminiscent of Melbourne's Oliver and a strong big bodied mid a great prospect. (15 handballs from inside mid).
Durham beautiful mover, fast who attacks the ball and is a very good mark, aggression I like, good sized HBF.
Henderson, back who finds the ball, some speed and got better as the game went on.
Soligo small fast who was good early, not sure of stamina and may be too small.
GWS had a lot of less than mature bodies so our youngsters could play like for like and did very well.
Is Elliot available for mid season draft??Elliot is a very good player, would slot in, but different type of player. Doesnt have the same explosiveness as Oliver, and is more versatile in that he can go forward. Also doesnt stage for free kicks haha
Elliot is one of those players who has always been physically more mature, and needed to grow into his body a bit. Recruiters felt he didnt have much upside because he was bigger than the players in his age group despite consistently putting in good performances at NAB level
