Bayanda is named in the forward pocket for GWS this Sunday against North Ballarat Rebels in Ballarat. Ballarat could turn on some traditional chilly weather for him.

Someone suggested this week that the country rounds of the IC next year be played in Ballarat, if you though Warrnambool was cold and wet you aint' seen nothin'.

including:

"Bayanda has very good skills but doesn't come with a significant football background, so he's still developing an understanding of the game,'' McConnell said.

"He played centre forward for his team back home but being six feet tall [183 centimetres], he's not big enough".

"We'll make him feel comfortable and settle him into another position.''
