It Wouldn't hurt having 3 guys over 195cm with ability...he might play as the ruck.Surely not, Lewis, Patton and Wright would leave us way too tall and slow up forward.
I understand what your saying but really you’d think that the only way all 3 play in the same side is if that one of them is the number one ruck. Can’t see it happening when we have Big BoyWouldn't hurt having 3 guys over 195cm with ability...he might play 2nd ruck.
We currently have m.lewis thats it
Why would the suns be looking to let him go considering the haven’t signed up king long term yet and have an injury prone day as their no 1 forward target they’d need to have another kpf in line for a trade in or they’ve lost the plot.Ceglar, Mcevoy, Lewis , O’Brien- if peter is coming than one or more are going considering also Patton!!
Or, it reeks of dees going after Preuss without putting much thought into it.
I don't like it, but it's well thought outPeople keep talking up Gunston-to-Dogs rumours lately (potentially making way for multiple Hawks trade ins, don't believe it but whatever) but had this thought for a hypothetical 3-way trade
Pick 9 + Pick 41 + Pick 43
Gunston + Pick 25
This gives the Hawks extra draft points to help match Maginness (assuming 25 is swallowed by a bid, it's basically just upgrading it's worth in points) while also leaving them two firsts to play with. This could mean they can trade with Melbourne:
Pick 7 + Pick 9 + Pick 41 <--> Pick 2 + Pick 20
This means Melbourne gets currency to trade for Brad Hill (if that happens) plus still remain in the top 10 of the draft. Hawks get to bring in Cogs + whoever else, draft Anderson while having more than enough points to match an early bird on Maginness. This ultimately values Gunston at Pick ~8
I don’t mind this at all.Trade, watch this space
I rather not go for the ginger verison of Vickery. Wright is utter sh*t no thanks.I don’t mind this at all.
If this is actually happening I would be inclined to think we are moving on from Cegs & preparing for the end of McEvoy.
If 2mP comes to Hawthorn as the primary ruck that can rotate with Patton & Lewis up forward he would be a fantastic inclusion. Farley mobile marking ruck that can roll up the ground as a dangerous forward.
I can’t honestly comment on his ruck work but given Monkey is a ruck whisper, 2mP would only need to break even rucking & then expose his opponent around the ground, it looks like a Clarko play.
On the trade front...
Gunston To GC with 2mP & pick 16(Brisbane pick)... sold.
It would certainly give us some added trade currency for another 25 year old or hit the draft.
Draft pick at 6
*insert player (pick 16 or trade)
That is a rather significant off season when you still have the supposed Smith trade, possible Cegs trade, a second & third rd draft selection.
2MP was one of the best marks I’ve seen in his draft year. It’s such a shame GC have stunted his development and he’s become a shell of the player he could have been.I rather not go for the ginger verison of Vickery. Wright is utter s**t no thanks.
To be a starting caliber ruck at AFL level you gotta be able to rest up forward and clunk marks and kick goals. This is why Pitto is a t Box Hill and why Cegs is in and out of the team.All this talk of trading out Ceglar, is very speculative.
He's are only decent back up ruck as proved Friday night- he was huge. Had he pulled in the the 6+ marks he just missed he may of been Bog.
reeves is too young & Pittonet is not AFL standard.
Seen Pitts at Box Hill, he's a very good VFL Ruck but can't cut it with the big boys!
So if we do trade out Cegs, we need to top up with a player of similar standard.
Is peter wright that player maybe?
