I think we took Goldie in that same draft too. At pick 50 or something.Jeez, it would have been great to have gotten Selwood. However, Lachie was a good pick all in all. Unfortunately, injuries really messed his career, ironically. For a short period, he was shaping up as the best floating interceptor in the business. I think the day he did the splits and “landed on his penis” was the beginning of the end for him.

For me, Lachie didn’t have the natural footy smarts to be a premier defender. He was a better pick than Gumbleton, but was also injury riddled.
Also, we struggled to really find a settled spot for Lachie......But he never really grasped one totally either.
He’d take great marks but his disposal would be ordinary, or vice versa.......just never put it all together.
