    Longergan was expected to go around 20 so I am surprised we took him at 13, however if he is a quality inside mid than so be it. I must admit that I am worried about the shear volume of mods we are compiling, they can't all fit in the side and as a result we may see plays leaving for better opportunities. Just as Hine has done

    Forgot to mention, there was someone else shooting around, forgot the name but I'm sure if I look at the profile pages I'll recognize him. Anyway, asked about the going home factor and all of them shook their head and said "Where else can you get weather like this"? Huge smile.

    Well, to be fair, Karmichael is from Brisbane so he is basically home and Aaron Hall is from Tasmania where they don't have a team. Would be interested to know who the third player was though...

    I'm quite happy with Sunny's output, but we'll need some back-up if Thermo goes down.

    Clayton on AFL website talking up Sumner's potential... Either can be used as a speedy half fwd or a rebounding defender. Time will tell.

    Good summary :) from my SANFL team and played some league football down here. He'll take some time to get up to the level required but could be anything... Hopefully adjusts better than his brother did when drafted to Sydney. I think it'll help with the young group you have all developing together. Will follow him with interest! Also, dibs on one of his jumpers next yr :cool:

    Lonergan is an extremely good pick up for the Suns. Had a feeling you would pass on Simpson for either him or Hrovat and in time, I think it will prove to be an excellent decision.

    Collingwood would of been VERY happy to take him at 18/19, I think with losing Caddy he is the perfect pick really. I don't think 13 is too early for him, rare to find a midfielder with his attributes who can just smash a pack kennedy style.

    Came here to check out thoughts on Sumner. Byron was exciting as anything and I was disappointed when he left. Hopefully Tim has a better time of it and doesn't have the same troubles Byron did.

    Not many know too much about him. Will probably have a couple of years to develop, but certainly looks an exciting prospect.

    Happy with Lonergan as our number 13 pick.

    Probably a little earlier than most expected. However, feels a hole that we have so have no problem with this. Also being from tassie the go home factor is smaller some what.

    Sumner, well why not? Might as well use that second pick, give him a a few years and then see where he is at.

    Lonergan is a straighy up, straight in replacement for Caddy. And from what I can tell from interviews and general enthusiasm to BE WITH SUNS, a waaaay better option!! Just 18 and 90kg frame already!

    Also sounded good when Sumner mentioned 'I wanted to head interstate', sounds like he wants to stick around.

    Smart by him. He spoke well in his interview on the Suns' website. Said all the right things and didn't um and ah about getting the boys' respect etc.

    Hopfully Tim doesnt move to the GC with the "uncle" that moved to Sydney with Byron. Not a help.

    Do the suns have a pick in the PSD or just rookie draft only? The list lodgement deadline passed so is it correct that they cannot delist anyone to take a pick in the PSD?
