A strong inside bull for the Geelong Falcons this season, Ted Clohesy is a Geelong Next-Generation Academy prospect, and played with an incredible level of consistency in the NAB League through 2022. Clohesy dropped below the 20-disposal mark only once in his 10 games, displaying his hunger to win every contest he was around, and make his opposition earn every touch they managed.
Early on, Clohesy rarely left the centre square rotation for the Falcons, but was forced to show his wares up forward in patches for Vic Country, where he continued to show that same determination and hunger at the ball. When he did play more outside at times, Clohesy still played more like an inside midfielder where he would go in and attack the ball fiercely rather than wait for the handball receive, showing his clear strengths, but also where he could develop more.
With the reigning premiers appearing in the box seat to pick Clohesy, they, or anyone else who selects him, will be looking to iron out his kicking at this level, and develop his impact away from the contested part of his game. If he can improve those areas to be a bit more polished, then Clohesy already has the determination and aggression to step up.
