World Talent!

Goaner Tutlan, a refugee who has been in Australia for four years, has been training with Essendon's development squad for the past six weeks and may be named as a rookie next month.

Although he picked up a footy for the first time just six weeks ago, and is desperately shy of skill, his athletic ability has wowed Bombers staff.

A former player in the Ethiopian National Basketball League, Tutlan has broken the club's 20m sprint record, the agility test record and the vertical leap record.

I can see it now:

Tutlan leaps, he flys above all else, he streaks through the midfield, dodging all opponents, kicks long to LLLLOOOOOYDDDYYYY. Aaaand Goal.

Damn I miss football.
