Steven Gaertner (Dandenong Stingrays/Vic Metro) - Draft Profile

Height: 199.3cm
Weight: 88.6kg
Preferred foot: Right
Playing Style: Outside Running Ruckman/3rd tall

Potential: 5-7/10


> Athletic freak – excellent agility (awesome sidestep – turns players inside out regularly), vertical jump, endurance and pace for his height – pace, endurance and agility both elite

> Very mobile around the ground


> Woeful disposal skills – poor DM, poor execution and poor technique – needs a complete makeover

> Poor footy smarts – couldn’t hold down a key position – only suited to mobile ruck at AFL

> Reach disadvantage for his height


Far too much bust potential for a national draft pick, but worth a rookie pick if rucks are a need as that’s his only shot of making it at AFL (doesn’t have the nous to play KPP). Big WIP - needs a massive amount of development to make AFL – if he responds well it should be worth it.
