Had a good crack and a good debut for the lad showed some signs.

Won't be an easier game than that for him .

Well done Dekka or is that Degga

Great debut. Looks an AFL player. Groom him as Bachar’s replacement :)

Very clean by foot but like others have said against a very very very **** team.
I would play him again

Extremely encouraging game. Went when he had to go and very clean with the ball. Just love him as an option as it releases Stacky to play elsewhere.

Replacing Short.

An upgrade in every skill, especially overhead.

It’s only one senior game and against poor opposition however DES played just as he has in the VFL all season, which gives hope to finding a replacement for Houli in time, players like Markov and Menadue haven’t come as we would have liked to replace Houli, however now it appears that Des and Naish May have the tools to be at least competent across half back.

Always a good sign when a player gets as many disposals in AFL as he has averaged in VFL. His game translates well.

I saw Luke Murray at the golf club after the game last night. He was rapt with Egg's game. He was so happy for him and I guess gave himself some endorsement given Egg is our first academy player to make it so far
