Pub summary
Exciting ruckman who is incredibility athletic for a ruckman, can rack up a decent amount of disposals for a player of his size and can use the footy well.


  • Athleticism
  • Foot skills
  • Ground level work


  • Physicality
  • Contested marking


English made his senior debut in the WAFL this season and performed well, capping a brilliant season at under age level.

He is not necessarily the most gifted tap ruckman, however, his athleticism, ground work and ability to hit a target is elite for someone of his size, playing like an extra onballer, making recruiters take notice.

He lacks the physicality and strength needed to play the ruck position at AFL level at the moment, however, his recent growth suggests that will come with a few pre-seasons in the gym.

Will need to add the ability to go forward and kick goals to his bow at AFL level.
