Out of contract at years end and would be due for a pay rise and salary cap at dogs would be starting to be an issue.

smith has also just taken a leave of absence preXmas break so maybe a change of scenery could help be it a different state or even just a different club where he has close mates

regardless one to watch next year

Of all the possible scenarios, I think a change of state is the least likely

Most likely would be another team being able to offer him a huge pay rise. Otherwise I don't think he has compelling reason to leave, he's playing every game in a contending side.

Highly doubt he will leave us when we are contending for a premiership

The only way would be if he got a significantly better $ offer elsewhere and he felt he could also get more opportunity at that club.

I highly doubt it happens and expect him to get more opportunity this year, but he is going to have some ridiculous money thrown at him.

Really don't want to lose him but would be rude of a club like Hawks not to go absolutely balls to the wall hard to get him.
He’d fit in as well there as I would at a Vegan Restaurant.

Dogs are perfect for him. He’s perfect for the Dogs.

What do you mean by more opportunity? As in a favoured position? He’s literally played every game since being drafted.

Yeah more time in the centre square. He is so good on a wing and half forward so it make sense from the Dogs to use him elsewhere to fit in the other star mids.

Could be the main guy at a lot of teams though. Expect we will see him get more time in the guts this year though and it won’t be an issue
