Nahas performs well in Richmond hit-out

Apparently Robin had a good game, kicked a goal, and set a couple up. A bit of discussion on BF about his mark going into a pack.

With a bit of luck he'll do well in the NAB cup and be promoted... I don't want to see him lining up for Coburg against us.

I think he's going to need more than "a bit" of luck.

Polak wont stay on the senior list so Id probably call that "abit of luck" and a huge chance for Robin to get promoted.

Not forgetting that all rookie's can be freely promoted after round 11 of the AFL season, too. Great news, love stories such as these.

No one at North Ballarat wanted to see Jeremy Clayton in a Port jumper either, just as the Frankston faithful would hate seeing Aaron Edwards in a Rooster jumper against them.
There are many others.We all know the system.

Apparently he had 28 touches in the first half! He might create his own luck if he keeps that sort of form up!

It's the same for those at Werribee, it will be hard seeing Podsiadly running around in a Geelong jumper.

[quote]RICHMOND is looking to place Graham Polak on its long-term injury list on the eve of the 2009 season and promote its VFL rookie Robin Nahas, whose progress since he came to Tigerland has been likened to that of Aaron Davey at Melbourne.

The prevailing view regarding Polak, who sustained a severe brain injury when he was hit by a tram last year, is that the 24-year-old defender remains unable to play competitive elite football other than in a controlled situation.

Richmond had sought, but was refused, special permission from the AFL Commission to rookie-list Polak in the manner that Essendon had with Adam Ramanauskas while the wingman was recovering from cancer. Although he has progressed better than expected, Polak faces a massive challenge to return even to the Coburg side.

The Tigers' dilemma is that an eight-week stint on the long-term injury list would prevent Polak from even contesting a VFL reserves game. The other obvious choice remains Kayne Pettifer who is recovering from a serious knee injury, but the club believes Pettifer is progressing well and could be available in the opening quartile of 2009.

Nahas, 21, was the player the Tigers had planned to take in the pre-season draft — not rookie David Gourdis as most other clubs believed — before it controversially took a plunge on Ben Cousins. Coach Terry Wallace and his team were quietly elated when the speedy midfielder-forward remained available for the club in the rookie draft.

He came to the club with a groin problem but his quick recovery and impressive pre-season ensured Nahas was selected for Sunday night's NAB Cup clash against Fremantle, in which the Port Melbourne recruit levelled the scores during the third quarter at Subiaco with a running goal from his first kick.

Winner of the Fothergill-Round Medal — the award for the best young player in the VFL — Nahas came heavily recommended to Wallace from his Hawthorn premiership teammate Gary Ayres.

So impressed has Wallace been by the youngster, that Nahas remains a chance for selection in the round one season-opener against Carlton at the MCG on March 26.

Polak began training in November last year after the accident, which saw him placed in an induced coma. He was in hospital for more than a month and remains under weekly scrutiny by Epworth Hospital medical staff.

Although his progress has been remarkable since then — Polak contested an intra-club practice match at Gosch's Paddock earlier this month — his ability to recover from an intense workout remains an issue and significant doubt prevails as to whether he could contest a senior VFL game this year.

Polak flew to Perth with the Tigers for their NAB Cup opener and spoke at the club's function there on Friday night where he received an emotional welcome and more applause than any other player including Matthew Richardson or Ben Cousins.

AFL boss Andrew Demetriou had backed the Tigers' bid to place Polak on the rookie list during the lead-up to the Cousins drafting, but the bid was rejected by the commission and the clubs.

Polak's manager, Paul Connors, would not comment on situation last night.
