Super happy with this one.

Turner essentially missed the entire year, prior to that he was as big a whipping boy on here as anyone.

Mahoney isn't a nippy small forward.

There's a role and position for the taking if he continues to develop.

It probably enables us to concentrate on a few other positions on draft day.
Yep, the forward structure is going to be interesting when you consider the likely candidates who can apply pressure. Atu, Jaidyn, Garner (when fit), Turner, TT, Zurhaar, Curt, Mahony, JZ. Would hope more than a few of those see some midfield rotations.

Meanwhile, 20-year-old Bosenavulagi will bring tackling pressure and power to the Roos’ line-up.

“Atu’s speed and power will be beneficial to us in the front half of the ground,” Luff said.

“He comes from a rugby background so he is tough at the ball and possesses great tackling pressure.

“We see a role for Atu in our forward line and believe his best footy is ahead of him.”

Quick, hits hard, clean hands. That tackle in the highlights video is very impressive - a light bloke but he comes from nowhere with great technique. Even if his kicking lacks penetration he could be very handy buzzing around F50. Like this trade.

Taylor Larkey Zurharr
Stevenson Walker/Comben Thomas

Garner Turner Ziebell Hall
Mahony Atu

Some significant upgrades on Hosie and Wood it's fair to say. Good forward depth. Shame about Browny :(
