Not sure he gets a go anytime soon.

Have Crisp, Quaynor, Maynard, Noble as rebounding and run with defenders.

And have Aish and Greenwood as general defenders... which is probably the role Appleby would most likely come in and play.

And unlike those other mentioned defenders Appleby doesn't have the versatility to play other parts of the ground. Offering less flexibility to the coaches come game day.

Can't see him seniors playing in 2019. Don't think he is on the list long term.

I’ve like what i’ve Seen with him. Isn’t particularly the prototype player in terms of stature but seems to be athletic enough to compete at afl level. If we’ve kept Crocker on the list for three years then I’d be inclined to give him another 2.

Correct me if i'm wrong but Crocker is also contracted next year too?

After a promising start his season has been derailed by injury and he is now trying to get it going again; very hard to push into the back 6 at the moment unless you are a KPP.

Was on the cusp of senior selection before the injury, and that was at a time when we had all our defenders bar Duny and Schaz available, so I wouldn't write him off for 2019 just yet.

It's hard not to imagine Appleby is still somewhat underdone after a long injury lay off but I don't see any pressure on him at all in terms of list retention.

Only 20, played 9 games last year in his debut season, has neat foot skills, decent speed to play on the smalls, enough height to compete against medium talls and has a natural hard edge to his game.

Plenty to work with.

Flynn played very good last season before the hamstring against Carlton and I think he would have cemented a spot long term but for injury.He has a real dip at it and no one gets an easy game on him,he is a goer and his disposal in his later games was sound,much better than his earlier ones.

I am very pleased he is back in the side he would of been back earlier but for injury and I think the coaches like him for his tenacity,I remember Roughhead said he thought flynn was a good player and I think he is too. Good luck to him he deserves another go.

What a mega costly player he is. At the moment I loathe you Flynn Appleby, we wrestled back some control and you get beaten without raising a finger in a one one one.l
