Debutant to hold spot

Geelong Falcons officials expect Colac Imperials’ Bailey Scott to hold his spot in the TAC Cup team following his impressive debut on the weekend.

Geelong Falcons coach Dan O’Keefe says debutant Bailey Scott “will play a lot of TAC Cup football this year”.

The Colac Imperials young gun impressed in his first game for the Falcons, racking up about 16 disposals in the team’s 9.9 (63) to 15.6 (96) loss to the Greater Western Victoria Rebels.

The result continued a disappointing start to the season for the reigning premiers, but O’Keefe said Scott was a shining light swapping between the forward line and midfield.

“Bailey was fantastic, he found the footy and when he was forward he found space and created opportunities,” he said.

“He adapted to TAC Cup footy quite quickly which is probably where a couple of others have struggled.

“We played him forward and a little on the ball in the second half to create spread.

“We really liked his speed and agility on the outside of the contest, I think he’ll play a lot of TAC Cup football this year.”

O’Keefe said Scott, the cousin of former Falcons Andrew and Tim Scott, had earned his spot following an impressive pre-season with the Falcons.
