As well as having a terrible tank 8 min 2 klms and 3.4 seconds 20mtr time. I certainly think Ryan is a better ruck option but Smith is a very good over head mark
Turk can you clarify - who has such a remarkable athletic profile? Is it our man Samson?

Samson tested 3.08 for 20m? I think that's it. Not bad.

I guess the tank will be the issue. We can work on that.

Thats my take
Enduro the knock
Strength an improvement on his 18yo self.

Its a BIG step up from the Queensland amateur snorkeling league. He was the big fish, but will be up against real monsters.
Time will tell

Yer, but Sampson's marking is also a real feature of his short highlights Vid, so pretty content there. I presume you quoted Smith's 'terrible tank' there.

Ryan looked to be a good overhead mark too, will know more against VFL quality but he really clunked them so I expect he ll go well , fitness will be his biggest hurdle

Definitely some tools to work with.
Good mark and very good at ground level for his size.

Not sure of his fitness but needs to put some more muscle on.

Who is our QLD recruiter? The team must rate his opinion highly. We snared Martyn and Cumberland from the academy last year.

The kids still growing too, was mentioned he was 206 at the draft. He mentioned on an insta story today that he's currently 207 and hoping to grow a bit more.

Great reports on the young bloke by our intrepid PRE reporters.

Looking forward to Ryno giving us a lot of joy in the upcoming years.

LOL seems like the lad has a bit about him.

Admitedly his highlights showed some promise.

Play him against the Maggots solely to play on Lurch that elite Key Forward and negate the wankers height advantage cos thats all he's got on us.

Tell Ryan to stand in front of him all day and then Lurch is done.

Then Grimes Tigga, Broad and Dave can concentrate on towelling the rest of em.

Balta runs amok all over the ground.

Good times.
