    That's done nice and early, comes out of contract same time as Buddy :-)

    What other big names need re-signing during 2019?

    I believe that Zac Jones will come out of contract at the end of this coming season.

    Zac Jones is to get his wish & play midfield next season. It's his chance to shine and take that next step with his development. If he has good season, I personally think he'll re-sign and stay because he now has a greater opportunity to develop further with us as a midfielder than if he went join his brother at Melbourne, as they now bat deep in that department.

    This is a video of the Suns’s room during draft night. It shows that they strongly suspected, even possibly knew for sure, that the Swans were going to select McLennan with the second round pick we got from West Coast. Is explains why they gave up so much to move ahead of us

    I noticed someone (I think it was Dew) question (sensibly) whether they wanted McLennan because they wanted him, or just because they thought another club (ie Sydney) was ultra keen on him. He got the answer he was looking for, but it was good to see him challenging the group.

    As I said earlier in this thread, I have no idea whether Sydney were as keen on McLennan as the Suns were convinced we were, and none of knows how the careers of the players will pan out. But I'm pretty happy we used that second pick on an inside midfielder (a major list need) rather than a medium sized half-back flanker. Especially as we picked up a few of that type later in the drafts, and we drafted two last year. And many of the other reasonably well-regarded ( in the media, at least) inside midfielders were picked soon after we chose Rowbottom, so there's no guarantee the club could have used their next pick to draft a player of that ilk that they rated.
