tess craven looks nice from the falcons, but surely they would have to take prespakis or rowbottom first depending who they like most, and then hope that stk then don't draft craven and then they can take her with their priority picks
Think Stan might have been the one to raise this but Geelong would be a hard sell for Prespakis or Rowbottom if they didn't want to move there. Doesn't help their cause that they finished stone motherless last on the ladder.

Craven does look the best of the Falcon girls so they might pick her.

I read that we’re included with a r2 priority and if I understand rightly, we re prohibited from trading r1-5 picks , wtf
Yeah Stan and Tigers Time mentioned it in another thread. Teams below with priority picks in bold below have to use their first pick in the draft and not trade it otherwise they lose those priority picks. Makes sense I guess.

Question is how will Geelong use their #1 Vic pick. I'm not sure using their picks on Geelong falcon girls does them any favours.


Your club's picks

Adelaide

St Kilda: 4, 22, 25*, 39

West Coast: 3, 21, 24*, 38, 41*

From the RFC website
"Richmond currently hold four picks in the 2021 NAB AFL Women's Draft, after receiving a priority selection in the second round last Friday.
The Tigers are unable to trade their first four selections as a condition of receiving the priority pick."
So GC, Geelong, WC, Saints and Tigers have to go to the Draft??????
WOW we can't trade any of our picks even if we wanted to

The Cats surely have got an answer from the players and their mangers by now?
Is that why Cats got ridiculous assistance for finishing 2nd last (not last like us last year and only got pick 15) because Prespakis and Rowbottom said no thanks, i'm not playing down sleepy hollow?
I wonder :cool:

With pick 5 (Vic pick 3) we sure can get class on outside with speed
Stella Reid OC, Tara Slender BP & Ella Friend GWV, any of these types, who play on the outside (wing/half fwd) would be straight into our best team
So you reckon Geelong and St Kilda go with Prespakis and Rowbottom and we go Reid?

Just read this on Draft Central from June 7



Richmond’s Trade and Draft selection period will be one to watch, holding the third pick which could shape how the draft forms. With Vic Metro duo Charlie Rowbottom and Georgie Prespakis likely to land in the opening couple of selections, the Tigers will have the chance to pick between talls or smalls, with some AFL Women’s Academy members such as Tara Slender and Ella Friend providing the height, or potentially look to spoil the party for Geelong who hold the next two Victorian selections, with Falcons inside midfielder Tess Craven, or one of the Oakleigh Chargers standout midfielders in Stella Reid or Amanda Ling.


It will be interesting to see which draft prospects play the rest of VFLW.

I know that Amanda Ling who took out the BOG medal in the U19 NAB Grand Final is playing for Port Melbourne and a good showing against top age players might give her draft prospects a boost. That's the question that is in a recruiters head, yes they can perform against fellow U19's but can they do it consistently at senior level.

The Geesook assistance package was a stuffen joke. HTF the AFL justified that given what we got last year for not winning a game is beyond me? If that's not a compelling case of the 'boys club' at work then I don't know what is.

It would be justice if both Rowbottom and Presparkis told them we aren't interested.

If Rowbottom and Prespakis are gone then our pick will either be Slender and Reid. Slender would have been a standout 3rd pick a few months back but she had a quiet finish to the year and at the same time Reid was going really well. Line ball decision. Personally I'd take Slender as we need a key forward badly, they are rare as hens teeth in AFLW and I think she has a little more class than Reid. I'd be happy with either though

ATM don't know for sure what Geelong will do, in so far as whether they pick Prespakis or Rowbottom
I do know that our 1st pick will shape the next 5 or 6 picks after us
Tara Slender has been touted as the 3rd best player all year with Stella Reid 4-5th best only by the end of year
Slender is a 176cm tall utility where as Reid is a 173cm general utility, meaning Slender can play KPP and mid, Reid more a def/fwd and mid
Having got McKenzie last year a 176cm mid & J.Hosking (mid) & Shevlin (will be a def) this year, sort of answers the question on who we draft
I was leaning towards Reid, but i think now it'll be Slender with a view of replacing Wakefield when she retires
Given the next 2 drafts are going to be severely compromised, we have to nail our 2 x 1st Rd picks this year

Yeah i'm leaning towards Slender for the same reason as you Lord of the Wings
She can play KPP and midfield, where as Reid is a non KPP, who plays thru the flanks and midfield
Slender lost 5 games due to injury, that's why her numbers are lowish, but her averages are very good & she was a big influence for VIC Country in the U/18 champ's games
We can get someone similar to Reid with our 2nd 1st pick, like Amanda Ling, Aurora Smith, Brooke Vickers & Eliza James
Slender is a jet with a good history for top performances, KPP or thru the midfield.
She's versatile, tall, good mark, good ball user and smooth as butter through traffic, has great AFLW traits
Wakefield's replacement when she retires.

Cheers LotW and Stan.

Sounds like we will get a good one regardless which way we go. Good point about Slender playing forward. Imagine Slender and McKenzie rotating mid/forward for the next 10 years. That's a deadly combo.

I like that Reid is also into the 170cms if we pick her. We were badly out bodied in the midfield last year which was partly addressed this year with the additions of Hosking (through sheer aggression rather than size) and McKenzie. Helps Conti heaps too.
