    Bit of an odd choice. Kid is tiny.

    I Only saw about 8 or 9 NYC Games this year - he played a few games late last year after going ok in SGBall - Clarke is good worker but as you alluded to very small frame for a forward, seems to lack the speed to be a back. Cant think of a standout in this grade this year.

    I'm suprised he didn't win "Loose Canon of the Year" as well.

    There's a lot to like about Joey Tramontana... decent player with the sort of mongrel Joel Romelo had.

    After watching the Manly Sharks Holden Cup match -amazing how well former dogs players who were at best ordinary, thrive in a different development system - both Bilal Maabahni (spelling ???) and Jade Anderson such better players now.Suppose dogs have a system other clubs hav development systems

    Harper should also nab a development spot.

    Keighran possibly removed because if Cleeland is promoted to first grade, then Keighran and Lewis will be in NSW Cup alongside Frawley.

    Keep your out for Wakeham next year at halfback, great ball skills with a very smart kicking game. Ashcroft is a lock forward, workhorse with skill.

    Agree re Wakeham Ashcroft seems to be in the Tolman mold. Zac Saddler (believe it was him) I only saw for half a trial game last season before injuring his knee and missing the season - he stood out everytime he was involved. The club has kept him and had him training with the fg squad as well.

    Zac Saddler is very highly rated. Only 18 and retained in the top squad. The youngest in that squad and he has good size about him too.

    Wakeham is very small and will need plenty of time in lower grades.
