    If that's the case, he's a very expensive decoy forward.

    Nothing decoy about it. He'll kick goals. He'll keep the ball in forward 50. He'll tackle. He'll take marks and bring the ball to ground. You wait.

    Article on the Swans website, Fox being groomed as an attacking HBF. Wonder which group Mills is training with?

    Any first hand training reports from RWO'ers much appreciated.

    "Decoy". Haven't heard that word applied to a footballer since Barry Bourke was playing for Melbourne.

    RWO needs a generational change.

    Is a troll a decoy?

    Fox did really well when thrown in the deep end early last season. Would be a bonus if he kept improving. Is he super quick? Know he played a fair bit down back in VFL.

    Not first hand but from what I can gather he has tremendously quick early speed (well under 3.0 sec for 20m) but not a huge top speed. Probably suits the midfield more than defense from that point of view actually.
    We have them where we want them, everything is going according to plan!

    I recall that I was excited at the prospect (?4 years ago?) of Rohan and Jetta both playing on half back flank with a role to receive from the "real" defenders and take off up the wing and delivering to a Franklin and Goodes. Real speed and versatile enough to kick goals as well.

    Didn't happen but Lloyd became the link man from defence, and played this important role.

    Jetta gone, and, methinks, Rohan better as forward. Perhaps still a chance for a Fox type to assist in a fast but controlled transition.

    Except in finals.
