I have thought about the Richmond / South Freo relationship too and also think it is a wonderful thing in more ways than one.
What a supply of quality, in particular, indigenous players it provides. The club has along history and is revered over there.
It gives us an eye and access to WA talent and I think our new found quality of care and support for indigenous youth and players will put us foremost in young players and their managers thoughts.
It is a win/ win deal.
I really hope the RFC continues this way and a long and strong bond is kept between the two clubs.

How good is it that this bloke is now a 2 time Premiership Hero forever etched in RFC and AFL history, when just 2 years ago he was playing WAFL unheralded.

His story is a remarkable one but his success even moreso.

And to think he could be in a position to make it 3 medals.

A significant role or career beckons him with youth counselling / mentoring if he wants to go that way when his career is over.

He is gonna have more cred than nearly anyone else especially amongst the young Aboriginal lads and lasses.

3 Medal Marlion has a nice sounding edge to it.

Who was that other WAFL bloke again? The super star that played for Geelol n then cost Wet Coke a fortune to poach.

Amazing what right place right time can do for your career resume.

Marlions mate TK.

I'd be expecting a big season from TK this year also, now settled back in Perth.

The Eagles become bigger threats to the top 4 if Tim brings his Geesook form to 2021.

Read the Pickett and new Yellow and Black books last week and highly recommend the Pickett story, engrossing and very well written.

As for the new Yellow and Black however, :vomit. Alarm bells started ringing at the beginning when it said it should be seen as a companion to the Amazon documentary.
