Great pickup. You would think that UFTG would be really disappointed. That said I have heard that South are having some difficulty with their salary cap. I believe that Smith is being really well paid for the season,
I’ve also found out that things are changing down at Mulgrave....I don’t speak to hitman much these days, but I’m told he’s head of footy down there, yet the committee has gone and appointed a coaching panel that has a connection to Craig Kelly’s company. AFL life member and former grand final umpire, and head of maroondah council sports field, is an assistant. Spent some time with him recently and he tells me this is a bit of an experiment by kelly. Gets a crew together, goes to a struggling club and brings in IP on and off the field. Again I guess we’ll see what happens. Good luck to them I guess.
