Post subject: The Shane Wakelin 2007 Thread (Player President)Reply with quote

Wakes dosnt seem to have a player president... any takers??

Alot of people had Wakelin written off at the end of season 2006. He had a solid game against the Roos (and in his practice matches). I know there is still 20 games to go but im confident that he will have a solid year and be as reliable as ever.

Shane was drafted in 1992 and played his first AFL game with St Kilda in 1994. During his opening season Shane recieved an AFL Rising Star nomination.

Shane, along with twin brother Darryl, was de-listed after season 2000 as the Saints wanted to make way for younger players. Seen by many as the less talented of the twins, Shane was picked up (selection 49) by Collingwood where he proved to be one of the most agile and most effective defenders in the game. (Twin brother Darryl was drafted by Port Adelaide).

In 2005 Wakelin finished 3rd in the club best and fairest and equal 4th in 2002.

Shane has been a quality defender and a major part of our team over the past 7 years. He is yet to kick a goal in the black and white. He will be 33 in August.


St Kilda (1994-2000)
94 games (2 Finals), 19 goals

Collingwood (2001-)
121 games (6 Finals), 0 goals (to end of 2006 season).

TOTAL: 215 Games (8 Finals), 19 Goals (to end of 2006 season).

note: Shane did not play in the 1997 Grand Final loss with St Kilda as his wikipedia page says he did.

As soon as the Pies ran out onto the field i noticed Wakelin. His red shoes stood out like a saw thumb! I knew there must have been a late change as he wasnt named in the side earlier in the week. (Dispite the anouncer and people around me saying there was no change!) Just before the toss of the coin the announcement was made that Wakelin was in for Clement.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Didnt have a big impact last night against the Tigers. Started the game in defence against Jay Schultz (who started the game on fire).

In the second half Wakelin was playing full forward which was very interesting to see. (I remember last year Wakes was in the forward line against Richmond).

He made alot of leads but the ball kept ending up in the hands of Rocca, Medhurst and co.

Coming into the side as a late change for Clement and with only 7 possestions, it might be hard for him to hold his spot for the Port Adelaide game.

Well Well Well,

Wakes you are a champion!! You played like a young man last night against Barry Hall.
You had his measure all night. He may have kiced 2 goals in the second half, but they didnt count, you had already done your job.

13 disposals, 4 outofD50, 5 marks, 1 free for and 1 free against and 3 tackles!!

Well done Wakes, I think you have totally earned your spot this week!!!
