We were talking to him in 2017 I hope we’re still in contact.

I’d give him 850k and 5 years and give up this years first as well as an ameet special.

I rate him higher than Oliver.

Not sure about Oliver yet but he's gone to a new level this year and would be cheaper than Taranto or any of their other good players. He's got the low profile high output thing which is ideal.

FMD another half back flanker. No thanks.

“Jacob Hopper no matter what”.
I haven't been watching him but he's 5th in the league for average inside 50s, so either he gets on his bike from half back and bombs it into the forward line a lot or he's playing more midfield these days. Either way, would like to see how Hind goes in the seniors, I reckon he could offer something pretty similar to Jones but with better kicking.

If we are actually in the market for hopper then absolutely Hopper over Jones.

Surely GWS couldn’t keep Kelly, Coniglio and Hopper...

Bloody gun, would love to get him in, as for Jones if it’s not paying ridiculous overs then sure?!

HBF'er? Every time I've seen him he has been playing in the mids.
He is gradually turning himself into a midfielder now he has more opportunity. Averages 4 clearances a game and a whopping 6 inside 50's this year.

I actually think he's be a good fit for us, at the right price of course.

There was an article on Jones in the HUN the other day and he's been playing big minutes in the guts and had a 31 disposal (14 contested), 7 clearance game there a week or two ago.

You'd think if he continues to go well there they'll be loathe to lose him, as they need his midfield speed as much if not more than us.

If he has a good year in the middle and our first is around 8 or worse I'd likely prefer him over someone 18yo who might take years to really take off if at all.

We've already got Hunter, Coff and Bytel for that.

Hopper was the one I said we should throw a $500K PA offer at in his first year or two. Was just a machine in the juniors and has had a ridiculous run with injuries (and apparently lost over 10kg last preseason with glandular fever that they kept quiet), but is now doing what he always had the talent to do.

Had like 30 and 10 clearances in his debut year when he got rising star NOM. about to hit 50 games this year, if we get him, he'll just hit his prime in a season or two. 750k 5 years, get it done.
