The word re our delisted players seems to be Walker to North Melbourne, Archie Smith to Sydney and maybe Nick Robertson to Fremantle. Wonder if anyone is interested in Ben Keays who deserves another go in my opinion.
Late draft or rookie draft. Or post draft as an unsigned free agent?

That would be good for those players, I think Walker has something to add and Nic Nobbo is a good tagger for teams that play that style and Freementle used to like to have a tagger but now a new coach now. Given Archie is still contracted we do kinda need him to be picked up and his full salary covered. Benny Keays has been trying hard all his life, he played juniors with my son. Cant see him as a good player but a little sniff somewhere would be nice. Skinner's social media has him still firmly in Brisbane, do we know is any of the others are doing pre-seasons anywhere else? on a permission to train list anywhere?

Still is. And every application stays current for up to five (?) years after lodging.
From memory there was some random who had never played footy who nominated either last year or the year before?

Be hilarious if they got the number mixed up and drafted an overweight unfit 50 year old who put their name in on a lark.

*puts in application at work for 2 years special leave without pay*
*gets asked on what basis*
*advises been drafted by Collingwood*
*Ok - why are you *really* wanting time off / you realise there are penalties for lying on government leave application forms right?*
Here’s an article from the AFL website that runs through the process and who’s eligible.

Think it dashes the hopes of an unfit 40 something making on to a list in number punching mix up.

With regards to a Stef replacement I remember reading somewhere that our academy has a young Sudanese kid 16 years old I think in there that is already 200cm tall. Anybody else see that ? He may be our future ruck option if that’s the case.

Haven’t heard that or seen any correspondence but like the sound of that

A Sudanese ‘Eel’ no doubt?

Looks like the Walker to North is a go according to today's article on AFL site with heading "Eagles weighing up bold move for former no 4 draft pick"
Hope it happens like to see our guys get another chance.

Part of the article
A number of 2019 delisted players have nominated for the draft in the hope of securing another chance, however several others have opted not to with their futures all but secured elsewhere.
Harley Bennell and Mitch Brown (Melbourne), Jacob Townsend (Essendon) and Josh Walker (North Melbourne) are among delisted players set to find new homes via the SSP from December 3.
