Delighted for Zach T , what an achievement on top of an already stellar career
give him the Freedom of portlaois ???
That’s a big move heading to the AFL champions
Chances of making it based on previous lads going down are not great. The vast majority don’t. Plus he’s trying to get a place on the best team. Good luck to him. But success is by no means guaranteed.
Didn’t read the article but category B rookie must mean he has a fair bit of a pecking order to work his way up. Wonder what sort of money that level is on can’t be great
It’s not much. And it’s a long climb upward alright. No better than 50/50 he makes it. Maybe even less.
Best of luck to the young fella. If life thought the poor chap anything this year its that its too short to have any regrets. Hope it goes well for him
He might get a year out down the track and come home to win Sam
You get to OZ, get paid to play sport , and all at 22, I’d take it, so what if you don’t make it, hate to see lads going, but I would have gone myself.
In saying that I hope these lads have some back up education wise etc… to fall back on .
