Seem to recall him having a good old chat with a couple of dees players after sunday's game, and then with Shannon Burns on the way to the rooms

Edit - he is a future gun. Would love to have him
Worked with Ash at the Murray Bushrangers. Great lad and his old man is a country footy legend.

He has a connections with Oliver both being from around the Shepparton region area. Ash being from Katandra and Oliver from Dookie. Everyone knows everyone. Byrne's is also a Shepparton boy and his old man did some work with the school boys level there.

Ash is also related to Chris Connelly and was a Melbourne supporter until he changed teams to Geelong after 2013.

I don’t think we’ll have much wriggle room in the cap. From what I’ve read anyway.
Ash would be great on a back flank if we can somehow get him.

I see we have a couple of NGA prospects. Both from Stingrays.
Mac Andrew - Ruck forward. Played quiet well apparently on weekend.
Kobi George - Small defender. Also apparently played well on weekend. Quick and a good kick.
Not sure if they are both draft eligible this year. As mentioned in another thread the top 20 picks are protected from NGA. And 2022 the top 40 picks are protected. Basically NGA being phased out.

Will depend how much we pay Oliver and Petracca, club would know they can't really bring in anyone before they lock in those two.

Ash would be really hard to get, GWS look destined for some kind of rebuild and can't see them trading out one of their future stars. Would need an early first and early second at least.

Polec ******* ew.
McIntosh a very good player but doubt he'd leave Richmond for us. I don't think spending that much of the salary cap on the wings makes any sense.
Agree, but I'd be willing to fork out a bit more for Hunter who looks to have been really pushed out by Bevo, he could be that elite kick inside 50 for us, doesn't matter what position.

Hunter rolls through centre bounces aswell though so he's not like Langdon or McIntosh.
Someone might get squeezed out with Treloar coming in and Bont about to be re-signed

Both eligible this year, was there for the game v Gippy and both performed well, with Andrew really impressing a few around the ground as such a mobile tall prospect. He'll need to work on his forward craft as I don't reckon he'll have the height for a full time ruck at afl level (not that we have heights out yet, but I'd be guessing that 195-198 range). George was really smooth through traffic, handballing elite but kicking needs some work

I'm really happy with our list TBH. I think it's important to continue to get kids in rather than top up with established players. I'd trust our recruiting team to find some diamonds with what picks we currently have.

Can only see us targeting the first round or a good player if Oliver walks. I do think that is a strong chance of happening.

Maybe if we lose oliver
otherwise we won't have the cash to compete with offers from North, Essendon, Geelong etc
No-one decent is going to North for starters. And we’ll certainly have some cash with a few retirements pending end of 2021, TMac’s big contract ending in 2022 and so on. There’s always a way although we’d likely have to give up a decent player (Brayshaw) to balance it all out.

If Gus likes the idea of playing alongside his brother and returning close in family in WA I’d be making calls to Cerra’s manager. Pronto.

Gawn Oliver CP5 Viney Cerra Langdon has a very nice balance to it. Better balance than the current starting midfield, which still looks a little too “bull heavy” to me.

“Gawn palms it to Oliver who dishes off to the running Cerra. Cerra evades the tackler and lace out to the Weid if you don’t mind!”

Brayshaw out for Cerra doesn't really change anything. I am a Brayshaw critic but Cerra doesn't even play on the wing. Not worth the trade capital for what won't really be an upgrade.
