We are very unlikely to draft another player like Dusty. Especially with finishing high on the ladder and lack of early draft picks as a result. What the club needs to do as far as replacing Dusty when he retires in the future is to do via Free Agency or trade.1) you're not gunna find a replacement for dusty, he's a freak
2) Rance is arguably best full back ever, it's hardly a knock on Garth that he isn't at that level, noone else is either
3) Lynch is the reiwoldt replacement, and I wouldn't be shocked if Chol takes the gig as second forward when Jack leaves (needs to improve his marking, but his accuracy is bang on)
4) vlastuin is next captain imo, and we have plenty of mids coming through to replace Cotch as we saw this year
Regardless I think Dusty has another 3-4 years before his form drops noticably and about 5-6 before he retires.
