Yes Saints traded for him years ago... :lol: :wink:


Though on a more serious note with Carlisle and Brown in the key defensive spots it may mean that all of Robbo, Gilbert and Demspter cannot play.

I was wrong
Dempster and Holmes both played 3rd qu
And Dempster has started the last
And Holmes looks like he is going back out too

I agree -I would prefer to have Acres playing in the seniors ahead of
Lonie.
We have Gresham or Billing who can play small forward.

Perhaps punishment for a poor off season?

Sounds like he's a lock for the VFL come right round 1.

It hasn't been reported anywhere that he had a poor off-season.
He wasn't prominent in the intra club practice match but otherwise has performed well.

Ventured down to watch the game, my observations were as follows.


Acres was everywhere is a class above this level, held onto the ball a few times due to no options further afield. kicking a bit hit and miss when in heavy traffic . But he is just a beast in the contest and at clearances , worked hard both ways.

Longer better than he was at Sandy last year, did not get a heap of the ball, took a nice mark inside fifty and was physical around the contest and rucked okay.

Long was impressive with his tackling he seriously hits them hard. Really hunts the player in his area. Think he needs to develop some endurance, looked stuffed in the last and did not work hard enough off the ball. Was goal side in the last quarter as we ran the ball down the wing he jogged inside fifty if he had of worked harder I think we would have strolled into an open goal but his opponent caught up with him and we ended up kicking to a contest with Minchington. Has real pace and ran a few down from behind so think it is an endurance issue rather than a willing to work issue.

Dempster just does the job, typical Dempster game tacklers hard spoiled took some marks. Dropped a mark he would usually take and had his knee heavily taped but I have no idea why he was ya Sandy and not playing tomorrow.

Battle played his best when on the move as a third forward type, was beaten when one on one. He is a beautiful field kick and kicked a nice goal. Has got some impressive tools with his skills and endurance.

Phillips was impressive moves well and looks to use the ball well, clearly has outstanding endurance and played on a wing. Drifted out a bit after quarter time . Was really impressed with his composur.

White carried on from what I saw at Sandy last year, strong in the air , tough and a lovely kick. He is an impressive player but in a long line of back flankers.

Sinclair is another who is a class above this level, got plenty of the ball won clearances used the ball well and is so composed with the footy in his hands. Played on the ball and that is what i see him as , he is not a small forward.

Mckenzie for me was up and down, got a bit of the ball and is courageous but tried to do too much a few times. Would like to see him lower his eyes a bit more kicking long is not always the best option. He is another who I believe is above this level.

Connellan, the boy is a jet seriously quick. Intercepted a ball on the edge of the centre square due to his pace ran round on to his left and had a shot from fifty but missed would have been a great goal. Obviously still still learning the reading of the play was impressed by him. Looks an okay kick, bar one turn over and dropped a few marks.

Joyce unfortunately got injured in the last, looks like a lower leg or ankle. Was impressed by him, super courageous in the air, needs to learn when to try and mark and when to punch but was super impressive.

I would say both the irish lads are ahead of where Tommy Walsh was at the same stage,

Minchington played on ball and was okay without dominating he is another who is above this level. Did not win enough the ball but used it well when he had it.

Pierce was for me the best ruckman on the ground, played forward and rucked as well. He has filled out well, he presented well took a few grabs and is quite physical now. A better bet as a ruck forward than either Holmes or Longer.

Marshall kicked a couple, nice kick and moves well, he could definitely okay as a forward who chops out in the ruck. Competes well at ground level, does not appear a huge pack mark but moves well so can get on the end of it.

Holmes played the best all round game I have seen from him, kicked a goal and was better around the ground, kicking has improved and he was very competitive at ground level if the pass did not hit him. Admire his efforts but I would have him behind all of the other ruckman as well as Marshall.

Miller looked to have clean skills and is a nice size for a kid.

Overall a bit to like and a few things to work on, but definitely some talent to work with.

As for the result Willaimstown are a good side and have topped up with a few of the better Frankston players, they team together very well.

Thanks Junior.

If 8cres played in the midfield today and racked up 38 touches (the same as Fyfe by the way - I know, i know in a lower level) then I don't understand why they didn't give the kid a full game in the centre in one of these JLT games to see how he goes for a full game in the big league rather then one or two goes in the centre for a match like they normally do.

You notice Richo loves putting on a gun show? He's huge on training and fitness - remember he came out of the Port system that was trying to take AFL fitness to a new level. Not sure that worked that well for them long term though as it seemed to burn them out a bit.

I respect Richo's ability to enforce standards and do what he thinks it takes to get players to their highest level. But I also hope he understands that not every player will be a "train the house down" type. You want some different types including those who are on slightly different wavelengths. Billings and Acres have a more play reading style where they might like to stay a kick behind play or place themselves where the play will break rather than just chasing the ball all over the field like a dog. You need the mercurial types who may seem a bit lazy but they are letting things percolate away in the back of their brains ready to strike a huge play opening move. I hope he doesn't try and turn cavier into fish paste.

ps great write up Junior.
