Geelong Recruiting and List Manager Stephen Wells has outlined what Cats fans can expect from father-son draftee Oscar Brownless.

Brownless was taken with pick 74 in last week’s National Draft and will follow in father Bill’s footsteps, who played 198 games and booted 441 goals for the blue and white hoops.

“Oscar’s very different to Billy as a player. Billy was the big marking tall forward with a booming kick,” Wells told SEN.

“Oscar’s not as tall as Billy but he’s a really good running player, will be able to play midfielder roles and flanker roles at either end of the ground.


“He’s a very good mark in his own right for his size, but he’ll bring a lot of character, endurance and spirit to the team and hopefully develop well in those other roles.”

Geelong also added Jordan Clark (selection 15), Ben Jarvis (48), Jacob Kennerley (50), Darcy Fort (65) and Jake Tarca (68) via the draft.
