Showing why we tried to pry him out of Geelong last year. How's the pace, disposal efficiency, metres gained and general influence on the game now?
Have you changed your opinion on him now hes injury free Biz?

He’s playing for Geelong..... there’s a good chance that he would be TBA on our extended injuriy list

Geelong were also able to develop him in the seconds, we would have thrown him to the wolves in his first season.

I like Clark and i'd like him at Freo. I selected him in my DuFFLe side on draft night a month ago which means I've kept a very close eye on him but he's been terrible so far this year.

He isn't getting the pure mid time he needs and it's showed so far as he's struggled to find and use the ball. He kicked a good goal on Monday but that's about all he's done in 3 games. Averaging 12 touches with just the 1 goal for the season is hopefully sending his asking price in a trade plummeting while frustrating him enough to open up to a return to WA with more opportunity.

When he's sitting behind Danger, Duncan, Guthrie, Selwood, Menegola, Parfitt, Smith and Higgins for midfield minutes, I don't see him getting much of a go in the next year or two. Come back to Freo.

It probably would have cost us a first round pick to get him back last offseason, and I really like what I'm seeing from Chapman, so I'm glad it ended the way it did.

It's a tough gig being a young mid in a team chasing a premiership. If he bides his time I'm sure he'll get his shot, but it might be when Geelong is on the downslide. Freo will be able to make the pitch that his prime might better overlap with our young core, but it's a big ask for a young kid to leave from a team that has been consistently playing finals for a decade to come back to Freo, who hasn't had a sniff in 5 years.

"It probably would have cost us a first round pick to get him back last offseason, and I really like what I'm seeing from Chapman" - this was my entire argument for not getting Clark. I'd like Clark in the future but when the asking price is better and we are in proper contention for a flag, not a young side establishing themselves as a potential finalist.

At the end of this season or next is a more likely time frame to grab Clark assuming his contract status and asking price work in our favour.

So Jordan Clark is going to be our next big bodied forward then? Or just a part time Ruck / Forward?

Yeah I reckon we use our first pick this year on the best key forward available.. Hopefully there is a couple around.. Be nice if we could get Clark for our second pick but I reckon that might be a pipe dream

It's a midfield heavy draft coming up however there's a few key position players from WA coming through who should fall somewhere in the first or second round.

Jacob Van Rooyen (claremont) kicked 2 good goals in his league debut last weekend and will likely be a top 10 pick (fingers crossed he lasts to wherever our pick is). Jack Williams had a day out for East Freo colts as he transitions to the forwardline, kicking 4.4 while also playing as the back up ruckman for 19 touches and 6 marks. Rhett Bazzo (swans) started well with 2.4 before fading as he also makes the transition to the forwardline. All 3 are above 195cm and along with 191cm midfielder Matt Johnson (who should return from injury this weekend) are the only AFL Academy players selected from WA. Each should get a taste of league footy this year but will be part of the academy team that takes on Geelong's VFL side in a couple weeks.

From our academy, Jesse Motlop started the season well looking quite lively for souths. He only kicked the 2 goals but could have had more as he pushed up the ground to finish with the third most touches for the Dogs to go with 6 tackles. His teammate and fellow academy member Riley Colborne was relatively quiet but did some good things and will be pushing for a category B spot. I also noted Jasper Scaife kicked a couple goals for West Perth's futures side. He's a 195cm kid who isn't available till next years draft but is looking very promising and will hopefully get some colts games this year.
