Yeah they can't when they've been training with them.Surely Sydney would be wanting to reconsider the two mature-age girls now. The potential to walk away with Ham, Hurley, C.Hamilton, Goldsworthy and Fleur sounds too good. In saying that I don't know much about Beruldsen and Mitchell. Obviously, they won't backtrack on those girls now, but they may well be punching the air knowing what could have been.
Honestly I think it's not so much them, but the overall signing tons of players to ensure they had the list. I think if they knew this level of quality was going to be available, then they could have held back a touch and waited for it to unfold. End of the day they had the high picks, so if this didn't eventuate, they could fall back and take two mature-agers.
I actually look forward to when it becomes a national draft because fair enough this happens, it's equalisation, but when it's national (and FT wages) then teams can back their own departments rather than have to do convincing/rely on some extra incentives to draft players.
