    I have no idea what GC strategy will be or which players are a flight risk, but purely on whether I think they will be quality players in the afl, the twins are better prospects than luko for me.

    OK. Ignoring my personal views, let’s take this a little further and accept everything you’re saying as gospel

    If that’s the case, why wouldn’t those who hold the picks be doubly keen to trade out their high picks for more chances?

    Surely Gold Coast would be beating down our door?

    Gary Buckenara has him as his no.1 pick and one of the best prospects in years

    whereas you just want attention

    Where do you rate him Sando, and what picks would you trade for him?

    Yes, If I were Gold Coast, reckon I would pick the twins & Rozee with the 1st 3 picks, with a view to the long term.

    I'd just take the best 3 players and concentrate on changing the culture

    Do you think we would have lost Brad Crouch if it were not for Matt Crouch?

    Personally I think there would have been a good chance after screwing up his injury management.

    If we had rodney eade as head coach I'd think we would have lost both of them injuries or no injuries

    I would be taking Luko and Rozee, then trading down to 8 or 9 for Hately and using their picks in the twenties for Valente and McLennan.

    A core group of South Australians to build the future around, all who know each other and have been part of a winning setup. Hately and Rozee are ready to go and with Valente, potentially great leaders.

    If that happens, will the Saints be willing to trade pick 8 and 13 or 18 for pick 4 given they don't have an early 2nd rounder and their target M.King is gone, I think they would.

    That's up with your trade JJ for Vickery or don't threaten to match Danger & just take the FA compo.

    You claim to be a good negotiator, but this is difficult if you are a poor decision maker...

    Then we make sure the Crows have a treasure trove of draft picks in 2 years time. ;)

    +1

    Its a great point you raised.

    Shiel is a blue chip elite mid. He only 2 1sts. How the f**k can we pay three 1sts for unproven talent at AFL level.

    FFS Look at what Danger cost the Cats. Beans.

    Well at the moment we only have two spots available on our list so unless we decide to move on Cheney or Signarello then four picks inside 21 holds no real value for us.

    It also depends too on how much they rate those SA boys, I would have no problem with the club taking a risk if they club felt that one of the SA boys were worth it.

    Being conservative is great if the list requires it, but the club's stance at the moment with the list seems to indicate that the club might be looking for quality more than quantity.

    Reckon Gold Coast will go on an SA raid, They will take Luko, Rankine, Rozee (as Port will take Smith) and McLennan

    I'd be happy with Hatley. He seems to have lots of upside, doesn't appear to be as trained as Rozee, so might have more upside

    Those in the know, keen to hear your thoughts

    Yup, it's very much make or break for Poholke, hopefully the AFL taster he got has given him an idea of the level he needs to be at. Then just hope the extra fitness allows his tools to develop into something usable at the bottom end of a midfield rotation.

    I wouldn't say those odds are in his favor either. Probably odds on to be delisted if anything currently.

    Knows how to get the ball and is a Goal Kicker. I like his off the ball work both defensive and attacking side of the ball along with his instinctive positioning/leading when playing Forward. Give him a few years/preseason and he will break the lines from the centre and kick goals in the AFL
    I like him But I am biased being from the Barossa and a Centrals supporter. Also seen him play live more than the Other 3
