I think the obvious 3 are Moore, Bennell and Webb considering we have/had links in the past.We are lacking back up in three areas:
Who should we target...
- small forward
Billy Longer has not managed to get on the park consistently for 2yrs, this is mainly due to significant concussion injuries and has therefore retired.I remember we were going after Billy Longer. Ended up Shane Savage traded to Saints & getting big boy.
We should go for Billy Longer
Not sure we have zero KPD depth although we could do with more. We need to bolster a number of areas after reducing our squad to 39.We have ZERO key position depth. Get Jack Leslie, Callum Moore and one ruck for depth who can support Reeves in the VFL.
Thought the Swans were big into Bennell.Also remember when we were after Longer. Also remember people being a bit confused when we got McEvoy instead. Somehow we actually managed to pull off the bunch of mid-low range picks and a fringe player for a gun trade. I do recall thinking the only downside would probably be that Longer would have been a better long term prospect. Well, perish that thought!
Worth a punt on Bennell, IMO. Assuming he's got his issues reasonably well sorted out. I think the risk with those sorts of acquisitions is over-stated.
He had meetings with ‘5 or 6’ Melbourne clubs as well according to his manager. There must be a fair bit of confidence that his injuries and behaviour are both manageable in the right environment.Thought the Swans were big into Bennell.
I find it hard to believe he has sorted himself
agree with this.So if you add Lewis, Patton and Frost to that list we are totally fine for height and KP depth. Lots of f
To this end - I'm not keen on getting a DFA key position player. Total waste.
He had a short hot streak that coincided with their late season form and finals run. It was never going to be sustainable.Why has Jacob Townsend fallen out of favour with Richmond? Surplus to needs. Its not often a premiership player get delisted!...and I thought he was really one of the group of first Richmond finals players of 2017 that set the tone of manic hard forward pressure they adopted and have since carried through.
Is there a spot for him at the Hawks?
