Some tough decisions coming up, can GWS keep all of Cogs, Whitfield and Kelly? Multiple Melbourne clubs will come at all three with very big $ offers.

Might be that only two of the three can be retained but whoever is prised loose will garner significant trade picks. No way will GWS just accept the compo pick for any RFA wanting to go, will extract a pound of flesh under threat of matching.

The largesse of the start up concessions keep feeding high draft picks into GWS as they keep turning high quality escapees into two high draft picks.

Taranto out of contract at the end of 2020 as well. Should find many Melbourne-based suiters (Victorian kid). I do find the lack of hype around him puzzling though, given he's close to being an A-grade mid in just his third year.
