Genuine question. What happens if we don't fill our list?

I can't see what our plan is with only 4 half-decent picks and not a lot of decent delisted FA out there.

You can run a primary of 38 and a rookie list of 6. Could very well be what happens.

That said I think that our 5th pick will be either Corey or Lockhart.

Pretty sure you can still sign delisted free agents, and then the pre season draft as well.

Sydney have often run with a primary list with open slots and taken extra rookies. It has created a strong culture up there of pushing to get promoted and they have a strong track record of developing their rookies into very good best 22 players (Grundy, Rampe, Smith, Jack, Papley, Lloyd, Ronke for example).

Must be on the same plane PJ, I also very much like the looks of O'Halloran and Sturt
What seat number are you in?!?! Haha.

But in all seriousness, I think it is simply needs-basis - they sound like the outside midfielders, with pace and good foot skills, that we need.

If there was a key fwd in the 15-30 range, I'd be interested there too.

Hill, and the potential of the go-home factor, is a bit raw for me post-losing Jesse...

With where he goes pick 54 might cover it with a discount

You can go into a points deficit for the following year if you don't have enough points to match a bid. I don't think he's likely to attract a bid until a bit later on, so we'll be able to use 23 and 28 on whoever we want to, and can worry about matching points from 54 onwards.

I'm not 100% sure how the deficit things works, but I think its something like, if he gets a bid in the 4th round, and we don't have the points to pay for him, the shortfall of points will come off our 4th rounder the next year, and shift it back in the order accordingly

Also, 73 is the last pick that has points attached, so 91 is no good in that regard.

They were taking about Ian Hill on the radio yesterday.

Apparently he’s 175cm and 65kg. Would rather we find another Spargo than a guy who will take years to prep and probably goes home anyway.

What’s the deal with Toby Bedford?

Have you seen him play though? Would be better than Spargo immediately and ALOT faster.

Can add 5 kgs in one pre season easy! Bayley Fritsch did! Lyam Ryan is 72kgs.

If we could get him and Bedford Id be wrapped.
