Regarding the GCS priority pick, "They have a compelling case this year." Gil's own words today. Also said it's a matter for the commission but don't get too cosy watching Anderson's highlights vid just yet. We ain't getting pick 2.

I liked Buckenara's idea of letting them have 4-5 players above the age of 30 outside the cap for a couple of years.

EG Lewis, Jack, McVeigh etc
There are better things they can do for them to get a quicker result for the team, giving them another 18 year old isnt one but i like the idea that you have just posted, this helps them to get some leadership in to teach the kids how to train and gives them the oplortunity to actually develop their kids in the state league rather than throwing them straight in the deep end.

Understand the rationale, but it's not much use if they're out for half a season because of niggly injuries. Jack and McVeigh have both missed big chunks of the past couple of years through injury and Lewis is starting to get similar problems.
Also just gave me a horror flashback to Neeld's recruitment of Byrnes, Rodan, Dawes etc. for 'experience'. There's more quality in those you mention but when the end comes blokes can drop off rapidly.
