Another one we missed, from Swan Districts, pick 28 in 2017. This kid's game tonight was outstanding and helped get GWS over the line.

Yep, covered for Davis very well and has only played 29 games.

That's hard to believe! Talk about fast tracking.

Here they go again.. How did we miss him gumnut? blah blah blah
Im sure he would have been highly rated but would you have used pick 2 or 5??
Our next pick was 44 in which we got Hugh Dixon so he was well and truly gone by then.
We forcibly removed Gold Coast of their pick 2 (well Ross did actually) - we should be happy with that..

What we should be doing is trying to steal GWS WA talent ID scout.
He regularly picks WA players out and recruits them ahead of the curve...well done

You would have to be Blind Freddy to miss some of those kids, but you need a bloody good set of binoculars to spot one from your armchair at Moss Street.

There's no chairs with arms at Moss Street, Polly. Used them for firewood.

Gee aren't we touchy this week, yes our picks at 2 and 5 couldnt really be faulted but the fact is we did miss out on Sam Taylor. No other way to 'look at this situation. We didn't draft him so we missed out on drafting him, nothing more nothing less. The problem we have though, and many on this site suffer from the same problem is that once we have missed out on a local talent whether it be Sam Taylor, Tim Kelly, Cam McCarthy, Rory Lobb or Patrick Cripps we then covet those players and become obsessed with getting them home to Fremantle whatever the cost. In doing so we tend to lose sight of the other great talent that may be available in the draft or even the talent that exists on our own list and by doing this we fail to grow as a club and get the best results from what is available to us. We can't pick every great local talent as we only have a maximum of 5 or 6 picks. That's a fact and the sooner we get over it the better. Sometimes we get a gun other times a lemon but once these kids establish themselves in the East we invariably pay overs to bring them home.

I see Nic Nat is texting that 'Cogs must be selected for the GF'! SD has been a source of many good AFL players in recent years one must say. I hope Cogs does play (is fit enough to play), he deserves it.

Sydney Stack is another miss? I still think SPP is worth a shot. Marlon Pickett yet to play but will be worth watching in the future.

Pickett named as best in Richmond's VFL win.

You fellas all think we are the eagles back in '85, and can take as many WA stars as we like. It doesn't work like that any more. We only have 5 or so draft picks, not an open invitation to grab the entire U/18 squad.

I hope Marlon gets a crack at the big dance. Unlikely but here's hoping.
