Some interesting insights here.

"In between the Pies' picks was Angwin, a hard-running wingman who had been on Melbourne's radar before the Giants called his name."

"Adelaide had been trying to engineer a pre-draft trade with the Demons – pick 18 and 28 for 22 and 23 – but Melbourne stuck at its spot and took Jake Bowey and Laurie."

"Laurie had become something of an 'it' player at this stage of the draft. Had the Crows moved up the board, they would have selected him ahead of the Demons."

"The final selection of the first round came down to St Kilda, another club who had Laurie in their sights."

Interesting. Just from the limited vision I've seen of both I'd have thought Bowey would be the far more popular out of he and Laurie.

Recruiters obviously seen a !of more of them than me though. Good signs that Laurie was popular amongst a few clubs all the same.

Hopefully we are past the point of needing some random kids in the team to improve us. Oh and btw , Melk on last years form is not best 22 , he better pull his finger out , lucky for him the coach picks his favourites.

Yep Melk and AVB were liability’s last season, combined they would be lucky to have 3 good games to their name since the end of 2018

That Adelaide deal would have gotten us Macrae but probably neither of Laurie or Bowey at 28. Not sure if it would have been worth it, clubs seems happy with what they did.

We clearly aren’t though. We’re desperate for high IQ and highly skilled players around the wings and HFF. Whether they’re random kids or not is irrelevant when they don’t exist on the list currently.

I think you might've gotten a little confused, we had picks 18 and 28, Adelaide had 22 and 23, these picks looked different at the end of the night because of picks sliding back due to academy bids. Nevertheless sounds like neither of Laurie or Bowey would've been there at 22 and 23 anyway as the Giants and Saints were keen on both.

Right. It’s confusing bc journos seem to change between using original pick numbers and post-draft pick numbers within the same article.
