Would you think any other sanfl side wouldn't want him in their team? Not that it was an option or not. Yes, no afl team was keen to give him more than a rookie spot but at sanfl level he is a fair player!

But not as easy as making unsubstantiated claims from behind your keyboard.

I'm not a fan of Sturt or the crows but I think he's a very good get for them and I'd rather play against a Sturt team without Tambling.


Sorry, I'll clarify my stance.

BP said it was a "Good get for Sturt"......they already had him, and it seems nobody else wanted him enough to lure him away from Unley.

Ok. True, but I think it wasn't a slam dunk...maybe we got him a job? Not sure but either way, glad he has committed.

Fair enough. Sturt were always in the prime position to secure his services. He just seems to be the sort of guy that immediately attracts criticism and not always justified. At SANFL he is definitely a decent footballer and from the couple times I've heard him speak I think he'd offer good leadership to the younger guys.

Anyway, I'm more interested in the supposedly imminent announcement (late this afternoon) on the NAFC website about new recruits. Given the number of players lost the recruiters do have their work cut out for them.

I was suprised he signed with Sturt, I thought he was going to play with West too.

That is the first I have heard of another sanfl club showing interest and by the sounds of it getting close? What made west ppl think he was considering a move?

I believe Tamblings in laws are heavily connected with West hence the interest was shown both ways.
Say what you like about him but he is a terrific player at SANFL level and will be a good fit in any team.

A couple of very good pick ups for the Roosters, there...

Obst is a risk, both physically and mentally, but if he can stay sound in these areas, he could be pretty handy in attack for North...

Very good player

Don't really like how he alludes to the fact that he signed with Collingwood VFL because he was very keen to play 'under the nose of a professional AFL organisation' on a weekly basis. I wonder how many other players take this attitude and don't sign with stand-alone clubs for this very reason.
