Very similar to the name he got from his father.

Does anyone know what the Matthew Lloyd connection is, as he was at his jumper presentation?

That was a tough initiation for a first gamer and I thought he showed some promise.
That was a lightning quick game, and the step up from school boy to VFL level would have seemed nothing compared to the step up to AFL.
Seriously, our senior blokes looked flustered and under the pump....what do you expect of the kid?
Finished with a goal and ran hard and showed good speed and endurance.
Nee!

Bombers and Geelong are my least favourite teams

I think Josh deserves another go. His first game was probably better than Paddy''s.
If he does get another game, and kicks three, where does that leave Paddy?

It was good to see him fight hard despite limited opportunities.

It got the attention of this reviewer too.

Josh Battle will have a tale to tell his class mates at Haileybury College next week after the Year 12 student made his AFL debut for St Kilda. With his Haileybury football coach Matthew Lloyd on hand, Battle was presented his first AFL jumper by former Saint Austinn Jones.
