I think it can be a good thing for him if its used the right way.A small midfielder who can drift forward and kick goals, the younger Daicos has been likened to Western Bulldogs star Caleb Daniel for his clean hands and intelligent ball use.But while hes determined to forge his own identity as a footballer, hes no stranger to his dads boundary line heroics.Id be lying if I didnt show him a couple of the tricks, sitting off the boundaries, Daicos Sr said with a grin.Its like any of the kids growing up, they want to take the big mark, take the speccy and run to the boundary and kick that goal.I think hes more in tune with football today, contemporary football, and thats centering the ball. Thats something I didnt think about too much.Neither Daicos nor Brown will wear the same guernsey number as their famous fathers - in line with their requests.Daicos will wear Gavin Browns No.26, while Callum Brown will wear No.17.The Magpies were forced to take Brown a little earlier than they might have hoped at pick No.35 after a bid from North Melbourne, ironically the club where his father works as a development coach.When I left work (on Friday) they sort of didnt give me any inclination at all, Brown Sr said.I thought hang on a minute, thats North. It was a bit of a shock to be honest.The Magpies used pick No.30 to take utility Sam McLarty, who was born profoundly deaf and wears a bionic ear implant.Collingwood also drafted small forward Kayle Kirby, who says he was inspired by the success of other Aboriginal footballers.I didnt just do it for myself, I did it for my family and my mob, he said.Theyre more proud than I am, to be honest.

Match factsAugust 20, 2016 Start time 10.45am local (0945GMT)Big PictureWell, at least things can only get better for Ireland. It would be hard to go worse than a 255-run shellacking and they will be aiming to narrow the appreciable gap between the sides when the rematch gets underway with only 48 hours in which to recover their composure.Pakistan have had their difficulties against Ireland in the past but, on the back of Sharjeel Khans mighty hitting, they breezed to a confidence-boosting victory to start off the limited-overs leg of their tour. There is not much to be gained in the way of rankings points by beating Ireland but winning has yet to become a habit for Azhar Alis ODI side.Azhar did not gain any respite from his own trough of 50-over form but Pakistan appear to have a better balance to their side, with several allrounders and a blend of youth and experience.

The long-serving Ireland captain moved down to No. 3 for the first match against Pakistan - though he was at the crease inside the first over after Paul Stirlings two-ball duck - and he will need to draw on a decade of experience to lift a side that has just posted its lowest total at home.Sharjeel Khan became the seventh opening partner for Azhar Ali since he was made ODI captain after the World Cup and, at a stroke, the most succcessful.
