Buddy, I know what the championships are. He was no chance of getting picked up to talk it up as if he was just a hair away from playing AFL is bull ****....?
The STATE CHAMPIONSHIPS.
Learn to read.
I.E against NT, QLD, NSW etc.
He didn't play TAC Cup he's from Lauderdale in Tasmania, he played TSL football.
His father played for Hawthrorn, and he was Vice Captain of the STATE team, he finished third in the voting for the second division MVP.
And yes, he nominated for the draft.
I'd say that qualifies
Jono calling it AFL instead of Aussie Rules *shakes head*
He lives in Sydney now tbf.
Yeah, was going to say.
Has often made the point that people don't say 'I'm going in the backyard to play some English Premier League' so they shouldn't say they play AFL.
Horrible stuff all round here.
Haha so true. Sydney is ruining meYeah, being a pedantic bastard it's always annoyed me too; I even had to change the name of "AFLSim" on CS to ARS because it was pissing me off. Near enough everyone does it in Sydney though.
Yeah he has a pretty major technical flaw against the pace bowling in general, as I said in this thread before. He stays leg side of the ball and ends up just poking at it rooted to the crease when it's back of a length outside off, so if it moves away from him or bounces he's in trouble. It's a bit like an even worse, more exaggerated version of "Hughes ct Guptill b Martin", but obviously it was never going to be a major issue in India.How good is Smith against swing?
