    Can this thread be retitled 'Blakey!!'?
    We've already got "McCartin!!"

    Anyway, really enjoyed this piece which includes some thoughtful quotes from Blakey on the players he learns from.

    Particularly liked this bit

    "After a round has concluded, recruit Daniel Menzel will watch clips of various forwards who played well on that given weekend with Blakey to see if they can add different aspects to the young Swan's game."

    The article shows the amount of work Blakey has put in from a young age to hone his skills. He looks so exciting already, a draft steal at pick 10?
