Heard a few weeks ago that Mathews is still being considered as a Rookie, bit of a shaky source though. Also I will keep throwing Alex Silvagni's name out there. The kid is a super talent, can hold down Key postion in defence and pinch hit up forward, could picture him in a Max Hudgton type role, but a bit of a stronger frame. How some of the talented players in the VFL miss out on an opportunity is beyond me. What is the obsession with 18 year olds anyway? gives them a 10% chance of playing 1 or 2 years longer...

I think you'll find Peter Summers is training with Melbourne...not the Kangaroos

Talking about rookie listings, what did everyone think of Valenti being picked up by Melbourne? Also, does anyone reckon that Neville was stiff not to be rookied or drafted by an AFL club?

I'm biased but I reckon Shane Valenti is a great pick up...his form this year has been exceptional....hopefully he'll promoted to the senior list at some stage...and the good thing is he'll still be playing for Sandy and Melbourne obviously saw the potential of Srefan Martin...hope he does well.. Suprised Neville didn't get drafted.....thought he would have been a good pick up.

Someone rang up SEN before saying that Neville should have been drafted/rookied over Stef, but I suspect that Melbourne must have seen something in from a development perspective. Zebraman, do you know what Daniel Hughes is doing football wise next year?
