Georgiou recruited with third choice

Rookie draft: Alex Georgiou highlights Rookie draft: Alex Georgiou highlights
Norwood coach Nathan Bassett thinks Georgiou has been overlooked by AFL clubs in recent drafts because "he looks like Mr Bean and he runs like he's running on broken glass and his kick looks awkward". Gangly he may be, but Georgiou has carved a reputation as one of the SANFL's leading defenders. A key contributor to Norwood's 2012 flag, he can shut down tall and small forwards and is clean with the ball.
