I hope John tells Dodo that we need mids no hbf thank you.

But we need half back flankers
Didn't we draft some last season? If we want hbf's it should be via a trade of FA imo this years picks should be used on mids.
My issue with this selection was that Riley Bonner was available and is clearly better than Morgan
McGrath is a mid mate.
McNiece is an unknown.
So tell him we need mids, we know what he will do.
People won't agree but I would be ok with Pittard if we got him.
Yep, at the price I would take him.
Both most likely end up playing the same number of senior games this year, zero.
Bonner has the potential to be a better player but until Port Adelaide actually play him we won't know.
There really wasn't much in it, I had Bonner one spot higher in my personal rankings. Both excellent, penetrating kicks off either foot. Both athletic, whilst Bonner had height on Morgan, the latter was quicker and had a better vertical leap. Both had their own injury struggles, with Morgan's more concerning. Bonner exclusively an outside player, whilst Morgan capable of winning his own ball on occasion. Both poor at defending, especially 1 one 1 and had some doubts on their overall 'toughness'. It wasn't an obvious choice as one might suggest, the real miss was Mathieson.
But Bonner did BFEAAK
I'm on board
Where'd that come from? Hangers, goals, breaking lines, winning the footy, hitting targets.
great time to get your mojo, pity that couldn't have culminated into solid final series of a few games
he had a good one? I was at kids cricket training
Did he earn himself another year today?
With retirements and other de-listings he may get another year by default.
He is exactly the type of player we need.
Not my type.
I don't rate him. Not hard enough for mine.
Should be delisted. Glad that he played well today, but it's been far too rare of a sight.
He might juuuust hold on if we lose McKenna
Biggest positive of today

It takes all sorts. I haven't rated him either but if he becomes the player we all hoped he would be when he was drafted it could only be seen as good thing. Today was the first time I have watched him and thought that he might actually be ok. We could do with a couple more bigger mids capable of winning the hard football and we need a couple of small/ medium sized creative back flankers to help out Bags and free up McGrath.
Yeah, I agree with that.
I go most weeks and today probably was his best game but I still didn't think it was that good.
In VFL you are afforded far more space and freedom to break lines and Morgan rarely does it.
If he were to make it it would be as a small lock down defender like Bags but Morgan is terrible overhead and lacks courage.
I hope I'm wrong but I don't see him making it.
Best game he's played for the club, no doubt. But does one good game in a final get you another contract?
A rookie contract.
