Where have these players gone and also Darcy Ginever (later post).
Not sure where they have gone.

Kluske looked ok in the games I saw last season, but he didn't have much size about him, and according to the footy budget he is only 175 cm and 68 kg.

Ginever was also way undersized at 180 cm to be playing as a kpp, but he did look handy at times.

I was told Ortiz couldn't make the sturt magoos, and that is how we picked him up, he also looked handy at times, but at a listed 171 cm and 71 kg I'm not sure he has a future even at sanfl senior level.

Kluske was the type of kid that could well become a top line SANFL player if he keeps it going. Just had some Pendlebury like evasive ability, some ball winning talent, and just needed to find it more.

Ortiz is nowhere near 171. He's way shorter.

Ortiz was a little live wire, and made a real impact. I would've rated him as our 3rd best contracted player last year. Shame to lose him and not surprised another club pounced.

Can suck it!
Can he play even if we have 22 afl listed players available?

Smart to have such a versatile player as captain. It hasn’t been mentioned here but he was one of the fittest guys in the AFL. Freak endurance runner and presumably a very hard trainer.

AFL listed have priority. Happens occasionally but most weeks we have 4-5 injuries.

I think you are confusing him with someone else. Ortiz didn't debut until round 17 and only played 2 or 3 games.

Na there's no confusion, he was extremely impressive. I really, really liked what I saw from him.
Ok well he played 14 games for the Maggies reserves. Played well v north in the league side at the end there..

When I consider how do the Maggies ever win a flag, the answer is by finding 5 (Might be 4 now we have no Summo) Magpies listed players who can play a role. For me Ortiz was the type of kid you could chuck in a forward pocket and he could clearly do a role. He had lots of potential and if we surrounded him by the right Power players he could've easily been a good enough role player to help us go all the way.

Kluske, Ortiz and Proude were 3 players I thought could play those roles. Kluske and Ortiz were raw, but plenty of future SANFL gun level talent. So it is a shame we've lost 2 of them, however I'm not surprised they were taken. If I was another club I would've targeted them.

Hopefully young Jackson Mead might be the type that comes back from the U18 carnival and can play a role. If we can get something out of a kid like him, combined with Sutcliffe and Proude, then we at least have a pretty decent group there of SANFL listed players.

Jackson Mead can only play 4 games for us after the U18 carnival. And if he plays league for WWT before then he is ineligible. I wouldn't be banking on him being part of our core sanfl group in 2019.
