    I thought the same to. It may be the lack of padding/taping that we've been used to seeing as some have suggested. This was his first session with the Saints which was a meet & greet rather than any intense training, which may explain their absence.

    Three time all Australian in his prime years, he'll be massive.

    Disgraceful trading on our part. Pick 38 was it?
    I've heard St.Kilda are not really expecting Hannebery to return to his elite best, but rather producing serviceable performances & parting much needed leadership/experience to the team. If so, this makes me think St Kilda know they were taking a risk having to fork out $800k contract for him and demanded our 2nd round pick (28) in return to get the trade done, as it seems BOTH clubs don't really think Hanners will return to his elite best.

    That's a lot of $$'s and a long contract for a bit of leadership and experience!!

    Given the Saints had missed out on their other targets, they were desperate to land a player of note, if only to give them something to sell to their members,

    and potential members, in the form of hope for the future. I reckon, and it's only my opinion,

    they would of caved had we stood firm on the trade being their 2nd rounder and future 2nd rounder, and maybe a 3rd rounder back from us.

    They needed this trade to happen, or they would have virtually nothing to show from the trade period...Which would mean treading water at best to their supporters.
    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it's time to pause and reflect... MT

    So Menzel has had his second medical, lets hope he passed it as we desperately need quality alternatives to Bud up forward

    AFL site also reports that we are one of the clubs to have interviewed former Pie rookie and Sandover medallist Jye Bolton

    We were ripped off.
    Wild speculation, unsubstantiated rumours, silly jokes and opposition delight in another's failures is what makes an internet forum fun.
    Blessed are the cracked for they are the ones who let in the light.

    Boltons have generally gone ok for us in recent history so he'd be worth a look...

    LOL good point

    The other thing it shows (whether we draft him or not), is that mature age talent to assist our midfield is on our radar

    From US to Sydney: Delisted Cat has medical with Swans - AFL.com.au

    This article from the AFL site gives some information about the progress of the Menzel potential recruitment, the likely time frame for the club making a decision, and explains why it might be slower than some on here seem to want.

    Part of me loves that we're a professional organisation who like to keep our cards close to our chest (we even drag out our delistings), but on the other hand it does make for a frustrating trade/draft period!
