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.

indulge me a double post ....

My favourite part of his book was when his Freo coach detailing how he accelerates for 3 strides before impact and the astonishing brutality and uniqueness of the technique.

its was a piece of poetry.

ive seen it and heard it and recited it too.

It reads to me like he could go like4like in a mid rotation with our captain.

Yeh, you do think that physicality could be used around the ball more. He moves so gracefully its natural to assume he belongs in open space. But his brutality does demand he be where the contact is at its most effective.

I love Cotchin’s gears. Smoothest gear box in the country.
Marlion very similar without the core strength that Cotchin has.
Both lovely to watch

0It will be interesting to see Marlion with a proper pre-season under his belt. (assuming Dictator Dan doesn't ballz things up between now and round 1).

They should make a clause for the father / son that 2 premierships qualifies! Marlion is averaging a flag every 10 or so games!

By the time he reaches 100 games, the Tigers will be up to 20 flags!

Suck on that one Eddie...................... Eddie? Where are you Eddie?
