Unless there is a kid that was missed in last years draft that we rated like Stack which we could offer a chance and have a look at im not interested in mature/state league players

Our worry is Broad and Grimes consistently now having to take on taller marking targets. It started to look quite vulnerable late in the match and it must be remembered Franklin is bit of a sheila in contested marking situations. They will come up against much better marks and we could get opened up at times.

Not sure if the answer is participation in the mid season draft or looking at moving Balta or Riewoldt or someone else down there late in games especially.

Grigga is still listed as indefinite

If he hasnโ€™t progressed by mid year then maybe we consider placing him on long term injury list or he retires.

I reckon midfield is still the area Iโ€™d be focusing on. A big bodied mid to help ease the load on Cotch Dusty and Meatball. Ross is s first year player and can be expected to hit the wall at some time during the year

I think Garthwaite will be in our side once he picks up game time in vfl and gets fitness.Wouldn't be afraid to give him big jobs.

With the draft only 6 weeks away, who should we be targeting?

A key defender is the obvious hole with Rance going down, but we seem to be pretty comfortable using Grimes, Astbury and Broad in those roles and with Garth sitting in the VFL and Balta showing he's more than capable of filling in down there, perhaps we may be better off going for a mid or even just picking whoever we feel is best available?

Jye Bolton anyone?
I have watched Claremont and the WAFL for a number of years now. Jye Bolton would be straight into our AFL team.

Seems like we had an eye on our backline integrity with recruiting of that ex Wobbles player that got snaffled by the Aints...
Sure we are going to go Mids?!? Not Backs?!?

Best available, but we may not even have a pick unless Grigg retires early or Tross is ruled out for the season. Should have held back more picks after the Rookie Draft instead of committing to Chol, Aarts or Weller.
