There is but do we have any more players out of contract? Who would we delist from here?

Crocker and Wills would have been my choices but both contracted for next season. Could always pay them out if we were desperate; don't see it happening though.
It is possible to delist players in contract (not recommended)
Crocker? Wills? yep, both possible
My point was more about our list is not necessarily final

I haven't read or seen much mentioned about Bailey Wraith. What is his expected draft range?

Not sure we are going to have the list space to take all of IQ, Kelly, Atu B and Wraith. In terms of list needs Wraith probably misses out.
Wraith would be well down the pecking order in terms of players we're chasing by the looks of things, and we'd probably have no interest in him as a senior list or even (Cat. A) rookie list pick-up. But we could add him to our list as a Cat. B Rookie if he's not snapped up in the National Draft, as we should have the one vacant Cat. B spot. Most likely that would be his best/only chance.

With Kirby forced into retirement and Blair de-listed you feel Atu is every chance to be taken by us late in the draft.

I don't pretend to know much about him but he looks to have a lot of the attributes a player requires to fill that small crumbing/pressure forward successfully at AFL level.

From the pictures of him he looks pretty cut physically already, is said to have a burst of speed, tackles strongly and if his 4 goal game (in a final?) is any indication has some ability in front of goals.

I hope we take him.

Come from a Rugby Background so you think Tackling be a Strong Point

Agreed. Need some small forward depth with Blair, Kirby and Fasolo all leaving.

The Collingwood Football Club and the Yarra Junior Football League have recently formed a partnership to deliver the club’s Next Generation Academy and Representative Programs.

Through this partnership, the Yarra Magpies Program (a combined Yarra Junior Football League and Collingwood Next Generation Academy) is seeking expressions of interest from Level Two or Three Accredited coaches or significantly experienced Foundation coaches to join the coaching panel in 2019.

Recently the YJFL announced to presidents of its member clubs the upcoming formation of an exciting partnership with Collingwood Football Club in the delivery of its Next Generation Academy and Representative programs.

Together, we look to harness and develop talent at under 12, 13, 14 and 15 Boys and Girls to improve their fundamental skill base and compete against other Metropolitan leagues in mid 2019.

Applications may be accepted from coaches currently engaged at Club level, in other representative teams, in TAC Cup, other NGAs, leagues or school programs if their credentials are well developed.

We are seeking exceptionally committed, self-controlled, player-centric coaches, proficient in fundamental skill development, team development and individual player feedback. An ability to incorporate game sense drills and activities is vital.

Please note; We will not seek to make appointments of coaches in the year level of their own child’s involvement. As a preference, appointments will be made at the year level above, below or other gender. We do this to avoid any perception of conflict of interest.
