Good get imo. another Sharks product, they are the club who just keep on giving when it comes to recruits.
I can see why he got picked up, i liked McQuilkin as well who i thought would also get picked.

This is a bit of a theme with me but imo i think we take small players because they are safer bets than the mediums and talls after a certain point.

Glad to get Smith but just a bit disappointed that we didnt see fit to climb up the draft order a few spots to have a go at Lemmy.
It seems we just can"t identify talls late in drafts.

I dont get the best available output these are picks in the 50's and small or tall they all have shortcomings and are a bit of a punt.
If we fail to not take any talls regularly then we have no chance of finding any decent ones.

Family probably thought at pick 49 he might not get selected at all.

And probably thrilled that it wasn't Norf or Essendrug haha

Kaleb Smith put on the Long-Term Injury List (RFC)
« Reply #21 on: May 26, 2023, 05:21:08 PM »
Richmond youngster Kaleb Smith will be placed on the Club’s inactive list, ruling him out for the remainder of the 2023 season.

The West Australian suffered a bone stress injury to his right navicular bone in early February, with the delicate rehabilitation program’s timeline now pushing beyond the season.

Richmond General Manager- Football Talent Blair Hartley said that Smith had approached the “tricky” injury and rehabilitation with great professionalism.

“We are very disappointed for Kaleb and the Club that he will not play any football in his debut season, particularly after how much he impressed us with his pre-season match play,” he said.

“He has fitted into the group well, worked diligently with our medical staff, and been very positive throughout his time on the sidelines.

“Unfortunately, after seeing some specialists outside the Club and with a stagnating recovery timeline, we have decided to place him as inactive with a view to his long-term future.

“We will continue to treat Kaleb’s injury carefully through this period.”

Not gonna lie, I forgot this fella was on our list.

Does he have the potential to be a decent player?

A real unknown given his long injury.

Physique looks good though which is nice, otherwise he's just another small, skinny HBF.

Let's hope that's wrong.

Sure does plenty of pace good ball user takes the game on and is not afraid of contact.
