Re: Georgia Patrikios

We were in uncharted territory with this virus. Unlike the flu virus, we didn't have vaccines to deal with it. We didn't know how it would evolve and mutate - all we knew was that it could mutate into something very virulent and become even more contagious over time. The Delta variant showed this t...

Re: Summary/wash up

Please let's have a look at Schlensog.
Adams will take a little longer to come through. This guy has at least done a lot of training and playing at senior level.
And with a name like that, it would be sensational if he came good.

Re: Lonie

Sorry for Lonie.
He was consistently not quite up to it, but Jeez he tried, and he kicked some absolute genius goals that I won't ever forget.
Thanks for those memories, and for being a committed Saint, Jack Lonie

Nathan Kreuger?

An Age article has St Kilda chasing Geelong key defender Nathan Kreuger. I've never heard of him. Stats say 2 career games, both this year. Ave tackles 4.0 (elite), intercept marks 0.0 (not very elite) But have a look at his 2019 highlights reel. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hGHKrtJx_8E&ab_ch...

Re: Saints looking for running power

and effective disposal, a bit more height and good decision makers. Perhaps everyone get a little stronger and do the 1%ers for your mates. Make tackles stick. We have a few prospects in mind for our 9th, 10th or 11th pick or whatever it turns out to be on the AFL draft algorithm. Might also go for...

Re: What will Saints do with their first pick 2021 draft

After watching lighlights of mac Andrew wow I won’t him plays like a young Nic Nate jumps and runs like him from center bounce and a similar build at same age. He turned out ok. Was Nic Nat a project player as his family were from Fiji. From that pretty amazing highlights reel, he's playing like a ...

Re: Alabakis delisted

I thought Clavarino really looked like he had the makings. I think he only needed experience and confidence -- more games and I felt sure he would emerge. I'm very sad about that one. Was a bit sad about losing Austin the year before too. Now our succession order of promising tall defenders has stop...

Re: Cooper aka Barrel must get the Rising Star nom

He'll be able to take any one of 2, 7, 13, 24, 27, ... and more.
George Young took incredible screamer pack marks too -- so Coops will have to do quite a lot of practice to live up the the #27, if that's what he gets.
But from the little we've seen so far, it's not impossible.

Re: Team v Dockers

Lonie kicked at least two genius goals I'll always remember -- one this year from the pocket and one quite a few years ago against Essendon at the dome -- from almost at the behind post. You could see the premeditation in it and the almost impossible execution. Unfortunately, he didn't do it very of...

Re: St KFC v Freo : Preview

I'm hoping for a victory of about 10 points or less. We end on a high note, yet slip just under Freo on percentage for the draft.

Matthew Hardy's I've read twice -- just for the sheer pleasure of it. To add to the list here there's also Yvette Wroby's Siren's Call. It's really her own person...
