    Wow no Markworth surprise at that, but hes a nice outside player that suits us well. Hopefully get someone good at 59 like Murdoch, Nelson or a ruck (Bolger Downie)

    Need a line breaking mid. Sounds like a good pick.

    Excited about this kid. Any kid who gets up at 4am, does schooling and has training in evening gets a tick in my book.

    Well he is from Cobden so chances are he will be somehow associated with a butter factory. :D

    Re: National Draft Pick # 31 -Jackson Merrett

    Not that theres anything wrong with that


    I'm happy with tonights draft as I was last year. Was more confused last year with not getting mids but hey they were right.

    Looks like we have a policy of getting good kicks of the pill. I like this policy ;)
