West Coast superstar Josh Kennedy four AFL goals away from 700 ahead of Richmond clash

The man that drafted Josh Kennedy to Carlton in 2005 says he initially feared his kicking would be his weakness as the dual Coleman medallist edges closer to 700 career goals.

Kennedy, 34, needs just four majors to become the first Eagle to reach the milestone, which could come as soon as West Coast’s game against Richmond on Friday night at Optus Stadium.

Former Carlton recruiting manager Wayne Hughes said it didn’t surprise him the former Blue went on to have a decorated career with West Coast, although there was one thing he was concerned about early on.

“I thought his kicking was going to let him down for a little while,” Hughes told The West Australian. “But he managed to sort it all out – I just know he would have worked on it as hard as anybody.”
