So you are saying Bauer would make a decent intercept defender (maybe in the Howe mold)??
I think we're planning to use Bauer forward, TP. So any wild ideas I might have about playing Bauer back in the future are out of step with the club's.

Bauer doesn't seem to get the air that Broad got but is equally hard at it at the same age. Howe's classy, as I see it, brother. Bauer and Broad aint. It's the attack on the contest that young Broad and young Bauer have in common from my POV.

Bauer has kicked 16:12 in VFL this year plus the one today he didn't make the distance from 20 m and the one he passed off from 30m out. Not sure yet if I would call him a lovely shot for goal but despite some brain fades today he had 10 marks and led up high to the wing late to take a down the line mark that was crucial in our win.
A pre-season should do him wonders and learning not to fly against Samson Ryan when Samson has position would be beneficial too, but you can't knock a bloke who wants to attack the footy in the air at all cost.
16.6 in his 6 SANFL games before we took him on.
I think a full pre season and structure of a professional environment will do him good.
Kid lived in 3 different states within the last 8 months. Hopefully some continuity can bring out the best in him. Feel like he’s the type of player who we will know by mid next year if he will make it or not.

I reckon he has plenty to work with and offer as a youngster.

Hopefully JR8 goes around again and takes him to school for the pre season.

I see a fair bit in him too, and think the year he has had chopping and changing between teams and still doing pretty well as such a young guy is a good sign. Also coming from a state that doesn’t have the development yet that others have.

We didn’t get to see as much of it with us than what he has shown before, and not sure if it makes sense to others as much as it does to me but he marks the ball at the highest point. I’m not sure why I rate that so much.

Jack could be great for him. It makes me feel old because I remember a young Jack running around for the allies before he was drafted, then Coburg VFL.

The best take the ball at its highest point Checkers, its a great trait to possess.

Tommy has been doing it more recently its a sign of confidence too.

Jack is the smartest campaigner in the business, he still runs the Tigers front third and 18 months alongside him will do Bauer a huge amount of good.

Plus he lived in Adelaide. Will take a few months to recover from that.
