2017 SC Ranking - 2827

« on: January 11, 2018, 05:40:40 PM »

Now I know it is strange to have a thread about a bloke who has only played 9 games of football, but this guy is some talent.

Across his first 9 games he scored:
76  91  74  109  86  103  69 (missed last quarter)  72  104 = 87.1 average

Now with a second full pre-season under his belt and under the guidance of Hodge and the gradual improvement of the Brisbane team as a whole surely the signs are that he will continue to improve.

I think we all agree he will no doubt become a serious option as an elite defender prem at some stage, but will anyone be starting from Rd.1 in 2018?

$478,900

9 games is not enough to spend that much money if he actually somehow manages to become a top 6 back can always get him later but Lloyd for 1K more is way safer

Not even considering starting him, price is way to awkward for the unknown.

Laird, Hibberd and Willams for me.

Yeah I wouldn't think of starting him but will of course consider him as an upgrade target if he performs well

Even as a Lions supporter not starting him - Bit pricey when you consider others around the same price. No doubt he will be favourite for the Rising Star.

For sure. Him and Jack Graham from last years crop will be right up there

Definitely a star of the future, I think it's reasonable to assume he'll be one of our first picked premiums in a couple of years.
However, we've seen second year blues strike a few up and comers so I'll give him a miss, in my starting team at least.

Not starting him either but might look to bring him in later in the season if he is scoring well.

To be a premium defender, needs to average 90+ and to get that score will need to score 100ā€™s semi regularly to make up for the occasional 80ā€™s. Can he do that - 2 from 9 not bad, but probably not quite there yet. More solid backs in SC imo

Have looked at him, but I concur with others. 9 games is too small a sample size given his price. If he continues to develop look at him as a POD upgrade target.

Menegola and Witherden in a similar boat for me.

Would rather get players that have proven them selves over at least one whole season and preferably more.

Locked in him for 2018 after his 3rd game last year.

Committed to sticking with my gut on this one.

Certainly tempted and had him earmarked until his price was released. Expensive for a guy that only played 2 regular season games. Think he could average 85-90 though
