What I like about this pick is the upside. We clearly had him ranked higher, but he's had a few injuries and slid down rankings and I think some have pigeon holed him as a flanker, but he had a number of games in the high 20's, and can kick off both feet, can kick short as well as roost it.

Tel Aviv
The aim will be to put some weight on him, develop his inside/contested game a bit more, his sideways movement in traffic, and eventually have him play through the middle where at 186cm with very neat foot skills he could be of significant value. He played largely as a mid at junior level before finding a role as a clearance specialist for the Devils off half back, but as Armstrong says, he projects him to be an AFL midfielder.

I think young Banks said on SEN radio with Loin Chop and Whisper that his nicname was 'banger'.

Good looking rooster. Will break a few hearts before his AFL career is over.
