Wonder if we’ll look to off load our 2020 draft pick because of him.https://afl.draftcentral.com.au/tag/reef-mcinnes/
#21 Reef McInnes (Oakleigh Chargers)
The Collingwood NGA prospect looks to be another great find for the Magpies, and he had some sort of start to the game. McInnes was strong from the get-go, winning the very first clearance and working hard to impact a number of contests around the ground – he was involved in just about everything. His clean hands, strength in the contest, and tackling made him the dominant inside midfielder, but his spread and props in traffic bode well for a well-balanced game. McInnes was a little quieter as the game wore on, but racked up 24 disposals, nine tackles, six clearances, and four inside 50s.
Regardless of who the other clubs end up with, it's hard not to be cynical and worry that if too many Quaynor-standard types end up "ours for the taking" that the system will be changed quite a bit!This whole NGA system seems like the sort of thing the AFL could just neuter on a whim. Don't want to get too attached to a future prospect.
His dad is at the Swans and Nick had been in Sydney for a long time. There was never any chance of going to North so I’m not too sure why people would be upset?Went to Swans when North had him Father Son and shows how the North Acadmies are Unfair Advantage for Northern State Teams
He would of had the choice of playing for either Brisbane or North Melbourne as a F/S so I don't have a problem with that one. It's just lucky for Sydney he chose them.Went to Swans when North had him Father Son and shows how the North Acadmies are Unfair Advantage for Northern State Teams
If he is possibly anywhere in top 20 next year, it would make sense to trade next years first rounder into the 2019 national draft
Reef has another year of development to come. We'll see where he is at in 12 months time. Things change. Sometimes for the better. Other times not. He's in my top 20 for now and his play during the finals will tell us more about where he is at. So I wouldn't be trading a first round pick on the basis of Reef. If anything with that thought process in mind you hold and wait because of him and then deal next year more ideally during the trade period to suit what you want to do in the leadup to the draft.
