So with the on trade of 50, it works out to:
OUT: Future 2nd
IN: a 5 pick upgrade to get our guy, 2 future 3rds and a future 4th.

Not bad in the end! How does that shake out for bidding points next year? Are two 3rds and a 4th worth about the same as a 2nd?

Since some projected Harrison to go as early as 21, I am happy to land him.

Between he, Gown and Zerk we hopefully have a good spine for 10+ year's.

Let's say we get 45, 50 and 68 it roughly translates to pick 28

moves well this kid and I'm very happy we got him for pick 30 - will need (and be given) time to develop in the reserves but could potentially play that 3rd tall forward role for the seniors in 2021

Already a story in the HUN about how Harry is the back up plan for Joe Daniher.

Has anyone in this club ever pondered the merits of not speaking to the media?

We also got pick 63 back this year for 50 which was used on Lachlan Johnson.

Sounds a little bit Jack Darling-esque to me?

Mobile, capable of playing a supporting ruck role, capable at ground level. If he can build his size and strength he's got plenty of attributes to work with.
