Impressive kicking in his highlights, looks solid and has ability to impose himself on the play. Call him "Fulla"if you like but I'm keen to see him take the field. Last season his nickname was "plugger" so he must have quite a love life too :D

Talked about as the 'steal' of the draft...

Hope it turns out to be so, but wondering who he would/could replace, Walla?, Fantasia?...

Thoughts?

Would love to buy into this “steal of the draft” thinking but let’s be honest, you could throw a blanket over dozens of non-heralded players and surely one will emerge as a gun footballer. A steal, is more likely a highly touted player who slides from early to late selection. I am not sure if Cahill was ever seen as a first or second rounder? I may be wrong. Either way, it is encouraging to hear that he does in fact possess the qualities that will place him in good stead going forward.

You need to take all the pre-draft hype with a more than a grain of salt (apart from the obvious top 5-8).

Cahill was tipped to go anywhere between 40 and 55. We snared him with pick 56. Conversely, Harrison Jones was widely tipped to go pick 20-25 and we got him with pick 30.

Chirgwin (a big bodied midfielder some in here found interesting) was tipped to be selected around pick 43-55. He was not sleected in either the main or rookie drafts.

So how do we know if we got a steal? Well, we check just how his is going in 5 to 8 years time...

Club should change its nickname to "The Paper Boys". Because the only thing we are good at is selling newspapers
