To me Bauer has good agility maybe not necessarily pace?, will need to apply more pressure when ball is on the ground and apply a tackle or two.
All in all an ok first up effort, was poor for three quarters made the most of his chances and took some grabs in the last. Our midfield's inept effort to win the clearances and delivery into the forward-line wouldn't have helped him overall

Only jumped on a plane on Thursday night and has had just the one training session with us so plenty to learn.

Hopefully Bauer has AFL standard pace and agility, I've read a few different articles saying that he has good pace.



Men’s Round 17 Rising Star nominee

Name: Jacob Bauer

Nickname: Jacob

AFL Sydney Club: Inner West Magpies

Position: Wing/Half Fwd

Junior Club: Western Suburbs

Favourite activity to do outside of football: Hang with his mates, play X-Box

What is one thing that we don’t know about this Rising Star that they are well known for around the club? Having the longest arms in the team

What role do they play for the club both on and off the field? Lead up forward or winger with exceptional marking skills.

The night before the game what will they most likely be doing? Watching the footy and loading up with some carbs.

Do they have any pre-game superstitions? Both boots need to be tied up twice, with right boot tighter than the left.

Reason for nomination this round:

“Played massive role in the team on a day that the team didn’t perform that well, with some telling grabs.”

Coach quote on Performance:

“Jacob has only just turned 17 and has played 8 senior games this year. He is very coachable and always puts the team first. In some crunch times including last week’s Manly game and previously against Pennant Hills and East Coast he has taken telling contested marks.

His competitive nature means he never gets beaten for the ball and his pace and agility are a real asset.

We have organised Jacob to get invited by the Swans Academy to do benchmark in the upcoming off season and know he will acquit himself well.

Just a great kid.”

In my eyes yes, the 3 goals all came in the last and before that i thought there was a few softish chase & tackle efforts but hey, only his first game so no biggy and he was recruited to score goals which he showed he could do in the last.

Coming in cold, with very little training with the other players let alone the game style, we should expect a slow start... well at least for 24 hours

Hard to be sure watching on the tv, did he play closer to goal in the last quarter?

Forwards are there to kick goals and Bauer did just that
Very good effort first up with 3 goals

Listed as 192cm 85kg on RFC site
If you compare his height weight to Bailey Frisch 188cm 84 kg or Jack Gunston 193cm 86kg
Bauer doesn’t have to put on much weight to play that elusive tall forward role

We need to use Turk-d-tiger’s weights and measures system on him.
He’ll come in at 197cm and 97kg

No wonder he can grip the footy in his marking, look at the long fingers on him! Like Tom Lynch. Jacob Bauer.jpg

You'd reckon the club could get his picture added to the website?

Come on Tiger Media!

Very nice shoe on him.
Goals on the run under pressure from + 50m on a damp track.
Impressive
