Back our drafting to get the replacements hopefully. Drafting late bloomers / overagers which could provide that age balance. Answerth was a good pick this year, need more of them.
We are developing a tremendous record of taking draft sliders that come good ie. kids who drop down the order due to injury in their draft year.

Keeping tabs on x-academy would be a nice option too, to get mature rookies in our list.
Wylie Buzza and Declan Watson are out of contract this year, could be rookie'd if either of them get delisted.

Mabior Chol looking quite good as well. I haven't seen anything of Watson but Buzza looked handy when in the Cats side.

One I was thinking about last night.

We’ll probably have a better balance in our NEAFL list next season, where our kids can play more often in their “natural” positions. And

How’s this sort of recruiting beneficial culturally for our club? Clogging up our list with failed rookies from other clubs at the expense of drafting on talent. There was a reason why bids were not matched on these players and being delisted provides an element of vindication for our recruiters.
Talent should be the primary measure for being on our list, not being an ex academy guy.

Archie nailed a GWS lad in a tackle in the first minute.... Mummy like.... Could that be the strength of Archie in the future? Physicality?

This is fantastic pressure by both sides. Looks like AFL pressure, this is exactly what our reserves sides need, some genuine pressure and competition not a mountain of time to dispose of the ball like every other week

Joyce moves very nicely... Boy oh Boy wowed!
It'll be interesting to see how he goes because he's always going to be on the smaller side as a midfielder. Hopefully he's learning heaps from Neale and Zorko about how to work his way through traffic
