    I recall Horse spinning their recruitment in terms of us needing some mature bodies on the ground to have a good mix of youth and experience. I can't see us retaining them (unless they have a hell of a year) beyond their contracts as that young pack should be mature enough to largely hold their own now.

    Having pick 3 in the Mid Season Draft is a bonus, sure to be some real talent available.
    I wonder, do they have to clear him to play in the East Coast VFL as well? Any level of footy carries risk for him.

    Ditto, got serious skills and is quick, but he just doesn't seem to get a lot of the ball. If it's fitness that's the issue, then he's a fool - for he and Grey, this year could be their last chance in the AFL saloon.

    The Tom Papley Backpack $39.99 from the RWO merchandise tab - if only!

    I'm not sure I agree with the beggar analogy in these circumstances - more like the indulgent side of chips.
