Acres

Postby KingSaint » Wed 13 Sep 2017 8:41pm

Listening to 6PR on the commute to work this morning and Kim Hagdorn was spouting that Blake Acres was on Freo's list of players they want to bring back to WA. Apparently their plan is to target ex WA boys. I know Blake grew up following the Eagle's but I have chatted to his parents a few times and they say he loves it at the Saints.

I know he is contracted for next year and i hope the Saints keep him as he has enormous up side.

Will be interesting

What, so Rosco can "develop" him like he did with St Kilda's young talent during his tenure.

The name is Kim Hackdorn. Had some s*** site called Footy First or something to that effect. Obviously no one read it.

Apparently he will extend his contract with us before next season starts.

Good call, Moods. Extend his contract now. I was under the impression we had him stitched up until 2020. Don't want the purple puke and West Coke to get in his ear. Will be a gun if he puts in the work.

somebody on here said he has a girlfriend in Melbourne...I went to Perth this year to see us play the WCE and caught up with his folks
at the Captain's Run, they said he's very settled in Melb and loves the Saints immensely
Con Gorozides isn't a troll, he has opinions like we all do.
If you disagree with him and attack personally
rather than use logic and facts,
you're either lazy or your comment can be viewed as trolling.

Perhaps he was thinking about heading west when he infamously wandered away from Robbie Gray?

There are some nut cases who post on this site.

And perhaps Longer contesting a boundary throw in could have changed the outcome - but never make the mistake of putting the horse before the cart.

Look at the job WCE did on Ryder including the planning that went into Ryder.

TWO (2) mobile rucks who went with Ryder all game, denying him space and presence except in the tap contest and keeping him to just 2 or 3 disposals.

And they contested for the taps.

Yes, contested every tap.

If you choose to play a dinosaur you get what Ryder and others have done to St Kilda.

And not even in September when the opposition analysis really steps up.

Acres is an absolute requirement with every prospect of developing into our most influential player for a generation

Seb Ross should have been on Robbie Gray's heels but got caught napping
