Will we look at another merrett

Post by patoman » Fri Sep 13, 2013 4:21 pm

Wonder if his brother is any good
And if so will he get through to our picks
Zach Merrett
Club: Sandringham Dragons
D.O.B.: 3.10.95
Height: 179cm
Weight: 76kg
Left-footed small midfielder/forward with elite burst of speed and deadly delivery by hand and foot. Has excellent awareness and decision-making ability which can cause significant damage to opposition teams. Played consistently for Victoria Country in NAB AFL Under-18s averaging 18.4 disposals. His stand out game of the season came in round six against North Ballarat where he gathered 33 disposals. Brother Jackson is playing with Essendon.

Also would love to get a look at Christensen from geelongs brother
But think he'd be gone by our picks as well
Aaron Christensen
Club: Geelong Falcons
D.O.B.: 9.4.95
Height: 174cm
Weight: 66kg
Small forward with elite disposal by both hand and foot. A creative player who has an innate ability to put the game into slow motion when the ball is in his hands. His decision-making and ability to create something out of nothing is a real feature of his game. His balance and ability to read the game allows him to always be a step ahead of his opponent. Has been limited to seven games for the Falcons due to injury however he has kicked multiple goals in three of them. Brother of Geelong's Allen.

Zach Merrett sounds really good. Would like to see footage of him.

It worries me these summaries. I would how much of it is 'inflated". It would be good to see some of the summaries of players who have been on the list for 5 years or so and see how that all translates.

I bet Kepler Bradley sounded fantastic too...
Unfortunately, you can't drown a witch!

Bradley was very highly rated. He played on the wing as a mobile tall and took a lot of marks. Played some good games for us in that role too early on. When he started playing KPP and bulked up, he struggled.

Yeah, you never see a pre-draft summary that says "this guy is no good". Everyone sounds like the next big thing.
Aaron Francis is the Messiah.
