Yeah eagles have great depth. I won’t be surprised to see him play round 1, we have to start playing this bloke as way too talented to ignore. I still Give brander probably more chance than some of these other rookies people think are going to play.

I reckon he plays round 1 for sure but would wanna have a cracker otherwise he’s first out.
Gotta remember this is a guy they refused to give up in trades for Tim Kelly as they valued him greater than a single first round draft pick either this/next year.

Note- might be my bias talking but I absolutely love this bloke and think he will be not only a handy player but a future star of the competition
As a WCE supporter I agree but unless he is on ground this year that equals ZERO SC points
They will need to give him a taste, more than a taste soon - But where does he play???

He is 195cm (21yo) listed as a key forward - 2 games for 35 SC points a game

While touted as a successor for JK (196 cm 32 yo going 33) others such as Waterman (191cm, 21yo, 13 games) and Allen (191cm 20yo, 23 matches) have taken their chances when given

Can not see him in the forward line, unless forbid, injury or JK is "rested". Too big and will upset the balance

Not as a backman either IMO - depending on injury/match-ups Schofield & Rotham cover the talls at the moment and Frankie & Cole cover the others

Maybe the Midfield as a Patrick Cripps doppelganger :D :D

Even if named round 1 the question is will he play 3 games - IMO he is not a SC option for 2020
(May he prove me wrong ... please)

Yeah man I am not sure where he plays either. Can’t play forward given we will rest hickey/nicnat there at times as well.
Don’t be surprised to see Allen go to defense instead of say Schofield though.
Brander was initially drafted as a player that could play forward or back. He has high footy IQ.
His 2 games thus far were against the cats at gmhba and lions at the Gabba so he hasn’t had much opportunity at all.

My initial feeling on brander was that by round 8-10 when the loyalty novelty to Kennedy wore off that brander would step in for him but given the strength of Kennedy and branders preseasons I’m pretty sure they looking to play both. Branders only possible spot is the wing rotation imo with sheed/redden rotating with our power mids from
The bench.

That's what they are saying on the AFL site today the exact words " Brander has impressed over the summer and looks set to be used as a big bodied wingman " don't know if that means just for the preseason comp or the season proper.

Haha well there ya go. I don’t mind it at all. I seriously think he will line up round 1 for sure and if that’s the case the eagles will definitely give him 3 games in a row so that he can find his feet.

I reckon we can lock him in folks.

"We're taking (the) Marsh (Series) pretty seriously because we've only got two hitouts before the start of the season," Fagan said.

"We're probably going to play 22-24 in those games so that makes it harder to play some of our young guys. By and large we'll be playing what we think our best team is in both games."

Based off those comments, if the likes of Starcevich and Skinner play in Marsh that makes them high chances to play Round 1

Put a line through DevRob - hopefully a nice downgrade target

The Lions' first pick at last year's NAB AFL Draft Deven Robertson is expected to miss at least the first Marsh Series match after a quad setback in recent weeks that has put him behind back in the pecking order for round one.

Rookie small forward Brad Close will push his case to become Geelong's fourth consecutive mature-age debutant in a season-opener when he faces Gold Coast on Saturday.

He'll be joined by second-year pair Ben Jarvis and Jacob Kennerley and the Cats' first pick in last year's NAB AFL Draft Cooper Stephens for the trip north.

Following the success of Tom Stewart (2017), Tim Kelly (2018) and Tom Atkins (2019) in securing round one debuts, the Cats are contemplating Close for the clash against Greater Western Sydney on March 21.

Just read that Brander was playing on the wing and pushing to half back in the teams intra today

He also kicked the first goal of the match, and "looked lively"

Don’t think he will be a big scorer but this budarick looks pretty good. Maybe a chance of a guernsey

He's been touted as a chance for Round 1 even before tonight

Would be an absolute gift for us if he lines up, and should be a decent scorer too I reckon, for a rookie

Tom Williamson was in the best for Carlton in the practice match the other day. From what I read he played a lot of the wing which could be interesting. It looks like he could push Newman for a spot, but in reality it could be Simmo that gets squeezed out. Doc also was in the best and had a nice little spin which showed the knee was 100%.

IMO, Simmo and Newman both comfortably locked in Carltons 22.
