one of Taranto or Hopper is gettable.. yep, no cash at GWS.Hooper is 100 gettable , gws non money apparently unless there having a crack at dusty
I bet hooper ends up at Adelaide highly paid
both about the same height and weight. both ready to play a leading role inside the midfield.I don't understand Hopper would be EXACTLY what we need why do some prefer Taranto over him?
Untill he says he doesn't wanna stay in Sydney then i will be pursuing him fully.
Massimo D’Ambrossio has been spoken to by us. I spend a bit of time w Richmond VFL and the word is he will be picked up by someone. Can play a role in defence but more midfield and a very goood ball user. Is small though….19 years old played a few VFL games and done well. Richmond are looking to take him as well I believe, if he is there. Very different player to El Noyr but a better pick up imo as his consistency is very good.From AFL website..
Ballenden is one of 14 players who will this week undergo medical testing in each prospect's state, with the group a strong indicator of club interest ahead of next Wednesday's mid-season draft.
Players needed to have more than one club nomination for them to undergo a medical that will be distributed to AFL club doctors ahead of the draft.

El Nour is the only player from this list on our covid top up list. Makes sense that we were one of the clubs who nominated him for a medical. Heres a couple of write ups of him
2021 Victorian Under 23 Young Guns#23 Mutaz El Nour (Northern Bullants VFL) 14/08/2001 | 192cm | 83kg
Somewhat a surprise packet on the day, El Nour was ultra impressive in Country’s backline. The Western Bulldogs NGA graduate proved as consistent and reliable as anyone afield in his role, constantly getting into good positions to intercept before using the ball with wonderful composure on the rebound. His short kicking game was sound, as was his decision making by hand when working out of tight spots. The VFL-listed talent also made smart runs to receive and relieve others of pressure, working the percentages well as his side became increasingly besieged. El Nour was also able to use his height to compete aerially when needed, mostly bring the ball to ground or spoiling, but also taking a couple of nice intercept marks. Overall, he could well have been the player who looked most comfortable at the level, putting his name on the radar from seemingly nowhere.
Every AFL club's best top-up player option and mid-season draft considerations (ESPN)
A tall and athletic intercept marking defender, Mutaz El Nour is going from strength to strength in the VFL and has found another level to his play this year. While a few centremetres shorter than Aliir Aliir at 192cm, El Nour possesses similar capabilities as an intercept marking defender who does his best work aerially, while regularly negating the influence of opposition forwards.
I was just reading the NM board's thread on their list management team's departure and someone said SEN, a matter of minutes ago, reported that Dalrymple was to take over at NM in "the next few months".
Anyone hear it?
Oooookay, he also selected Rowbottom, McInerney, Warner, who are all best 22.Well he can go, he selected Stephens
Reckon we'll miss out on him, given the level of interest. It's either a matter of us missing something and not drafting him, or his start this year being a flash in the pan, so can't complain too much.Reportedly interested in Jacob Bauer, former Swans Academy player.
most credible rumor they've had in years. Wouldn't surprise me if Dalrymple moves to North but I'd expect it to be for a bigger role than what he currently is. From memory he's not actually living in Sydney but I could be wrong on that oneNorth Board is agog at some wild rumour Dalrymple is heading to Arden St.
I like the sound of Casey Voss. Has been killing it as a small / medium defender in SANFL and has been described as having extremely high footy intelligence. Endorsed by Marty Mattner no less. Could be just what we need.
He lives in Melbourne. Mate of mine played golf with him last weekmost credible rumor they've had in years. Wouldn't surprise me if Dalrymple moves to North but I'd expect it to be for a bigger role than what he currently is. From memory he's not actually living in Sydney but I could be wrong on that one
If he does leave he is 100% bound to SA heck there is already a thread on the Adelaide board lmao.
He is selected to play VFL this Friday v Swans in Sydney if anyone wants to take a look.Massimo D’Ambrossio has been spoken to by us.

I struggle to get excited by the mid season draft.
Jai Newcombe is an outlier. The chance of finding a legitimate AFL standard player has proven to be remote.
But I suppose there’s always a (slim) chance…..
