Are we trying to win a VFL premiership though? Trying to get someone who can replace Roughead in time (perhaps that is Kelly) and a decent key forward is a primary list need. We're not going to be too worried about (lack of) midfield depth in the VFL nor half back flankers because we've got a tonne of them in the senior team. Given we have Cox, Cameron and Lynch, i can't imagine us drafting a ruck-type who can pinch hit forward. We'd much rather a genuine key forward like Riccardi if available I imagine.Snoop are you hearing something re our interest in talls or just your take? Because I’m scratching my head at it personally.
if we take Dunn via the SSP we’re on track to have give or take 10 guys at VFL level capable of playing a KP role in 2020. The question is quality of course, but after adding Wilson, Kelly, Keane, Cameron and Tohill over 18-19 I’m not seeing it. Especially when you compare it to our midfield profile which will sit at maybe 5-6 options at VFL level next year or small defensive with 1-2.
I'm not convinced that Wilson, Tohill, Dunn, Keane, Lynch, Cameron etc are going to be in our next premiership side. So supplementing them with another key position player isn't the worst idea.
I'm not convinced about Atu either, so a crumbing forward to push Josh Thomas out of the senior team would be welcome.
