I reckon he corrected himself with his follow up comment
Immediately after he finishes talking about Worrell at 00:19
I think we are likely to see a few more names run through that midfield next year in order to build said depth. You'll have Smith, Jones, McHenry, Poholke, Milera, Schonenberg along with the Sloane and Crouch mix.To be honest I'm slightly disappointed with our direction right from when we traded pick 4. I even think we should have been more aggressive with the list this year to get another top 10.
I've said for a while now that without a good midfield we're going nowhere. We've got a solid midfield without the elite one or two players and this was our chance to take an Ash or Flanders (on the fence with Stephens). Alas we chose a kpd, who does look the goods.
I do really like the Schoenberg pick. Think he could be a very handy player.
Not questioning any of the picks per se. It's more the direction. I'm also getting bitter after the gf failure and the last couple of years.
Tom Hutchesson was 24 however moves better than Partington and missed 5 games through suspension plus also did his hammy at end of year and missed games plus finals . GWS picked him based on his speed n agility and he moves so well in traffic ala Tim Kelly. Toms never done an AFL preaseason and will Only get better. He was better than our AFL listed players in the SANFL this year especially Gallucci. GWS have a gun midfield and would not have chosen 24 yr old Tom if they didn’t see him playing next year.He's a known quantity and has already judged to have limited upside (seeing already have been delisted after spending 3 years on a list), and we don't need players for right now to protect youth.
I highly doubt Partington will get back into the AFL system. I especially doubt it'll be with us.
A lot of clubs were trying to move up ....and they were holding stronger hands than oursSounds like we tried but I feel, given what we hold next year, plus the fact we could’ve packaged 2 decent picks in the initial 37/45 to move up the order then we failed in that respect.
If we got preferably Rivers, or even Rantall with our 4th selection then O’Connor likely still there late we would’ve nailed the draft.
We came out short of the depth of quality we should’ve for a rebuild. Gollant could’ve been a rookie pick or if we missed him then could’ve easily picked Shute or Park instead.
Doubt it ....we have the mid-season Draft to cover Ruck injuriesDefinitely sounds like 2 rookie draft picks tomorrow
Hoping for a good prospect with the first one, still need more outside run I think. If we’re going down the SSP route we’ll probably get someone like Longer or Brooksby in, I’m assuming
Don’t know what else we might be going for then? I guess Nicks will pinpoint potential needs over the summer from what he sees in match simulation and our list and talent guys will find players to fill those needs?Doubt it ....we have the mid-season Draft to cover Ruck injuries
Speed ....which wasn't addressed in the DraftDon’t know what else we might be going for then? I guess Nicks will pinpoint potential needs over the summer from what he sees in match simulation and our list and talent guys will find players to fill those needs?
Schoenberg, Jones, Hamill, and to a lesser extent McHenry are all pretty speedy selections over the last 2 drafts combined.Speed needs to be addressed in the rookie draft, not one line breaker amongst that lot.
