Keep Sicily above anyone with the exception of Will Day. Actually makes our team infinitely better and has potentially the best years ahead of him. Two mid first rounds for Sicily isn't enough, let alone giving a second back. If Sic wants out next year as a FA, and we finish bottom or there abouts then maybe begrudgingly accept the first round Compo pick. At this stage he's turning 28. A 28 year old for pick 2 or 3 in our position is something we can't turn down almost irrespective of the player.SOLD
My strategy would be to use our two second rounds as bait to get the Magpies 2022 first. That gives them the points to match for Daicos, or offer our picks for GWS first as they wont want to lose their pick for their academy pick Josh Fahey.
Also would look to move either Mitchell or Worpel to whoever gets us a better first round pick.
Use the PSD to recruit 1 -2 highly rated young guys from one of the better clubs or interstate clubs where kids haven't settled or where the young guys haven't got a look in. Cody Weightman , Sam Flanders and a tried and proven ruckman...I would have said Sam Hayes but think he's signed.
Use the MSD to recruit a young ruckman. Seems there are three handy ones up for grabs...
Don't bother with high priced FA's yet, go down that path in 2-3 years when our young guys have developed a bit.
Keep our cap space.
Move on Shiels, Big Boy, Cegs, Burgoyne.
Make Jaegar captain until Day is ready 2 years later.
Move on the players who have had a few years in the system and just don't look like they have it in them...Nash, Cousins, Howe, Broosksby, Hanrahan etc...
I could go deeper but our strategy will tell whether we are out of the woods in two years time or are the next Carlton, Melbourne spending 10+ years and multiple rebuilds to get back to being where we belong.
