How the fu** am I supposed to know? I'm just posting what I saw. I have not seen or heard anything from the club that suggests he has been trialled as a forward and subsequently deemed s**thouse enough that he was pigeonholed as a backman. As early as a pre season game on a suburban ground, he was playing on a HBF and didn't go near the forward lineWho was his development coach at North for the preseason?
That’s an option or we could have elevated Zurhaar rather than keep him on the Rookie list for 3 years. Reckon after breaking his ankle trying to ruck for us he’s earned it.But if we took him as a rookie, someone else would’ve been taken in the main draft in his place. So net effect on $ would be zero?
Or are you saying we should’ve gone for a 38/6 list this year?
I get that this is your schtick, but stop hacking other people's accounts.Apologies to those that hate this stuff, but...meh.

Three first round picks, with a couple around the 50 mark which would be well placed for live trading.
With the extra pick next year, well placed to get a second first round pick next year too.
Rookies: Out: Zurhaar and Wilkinson. In: Hosie and picks 5 & 23. Go with a 38/6 senior/rookie list next year. With a handy rookie list of T Murphy, Hosie, McKenzie, Hayden & 2 x picks, aiming for at least a couple of the rookies to improve enough next year to be promoted at end 2020.
