Any word yet on Rising Star nominee for the weekend. Sam Sturt would have to be a chance unless they give it to one of the Gold Coast kids for a merit award, or Pickett from Melbourne. Sam reminded me of a young Nat Fyfe when he was a scrawny kid in his first season.

I think Fyfe was a scrawny kid with big hands for his first two seasons. Then he went to Sean Darcy's folks place for a Sunday roast - he never looked back.

Using that logic, maybe Sean Darcy should spend some time at the Fyfes to trim down a bit.

Some sports journo, in an article somewhere has attributed Darcy's lack of form this season to losing 10 or 15 kgs. Can't find it again to link on here.

Naah, Polly, he saw that vidoe clip of Scotty Cummings kicking 11 goals, but the next year Lyon shifted him to the midfield. Bloody Lyon.

That's stupid - sure, 10 or 15kgs on most people is a lot of weight to lose. But on Hodor it roughly equates to less swelling on one ankle.

Don't know if Darcy is up to wrangling sheep and driving DoubleBs at Fyfe's place.

As this season's only likely nominee, I reckon he has this in the bag

Nah, more likely to cancel it for the year, like the AFLW.
Then make him ineligible for 2021 as he’d already been nominated.

You are a bloody cynic.

Or you are trying to get Shane to throw away his chance at a JFS.

On Talking Footy, Wayne Carey made mention of Sturt's great performance.

Luke Darcy said "Yep, Sam Sturt from North Melbourne did well".........

At the presentation ceremony later in the year:

‘Sam, congratulations on winning the NAB Rising Star, here’s your prize of a NAB share portfolio worth ten thou... err.. four thousand dollars”

Matebe, you forgot the intro.

" NAB Rising Star Sam Sturt, welcome to AFL house, so tell me, how was the trip from Arden Street?"
