Is there a minimum number of list changes/delistings that need to be made each year?
Likely need to trim down to 27, as was the case last year, so a minimum of two more. But it all depends on whether new teams are added next year (there won't be, but the AFL commission has to meet on May 12 to confirm that).

Would delist Nestor next
Amy smith/Brooke brown would be in strife also

Gibson I’m still not sold is going to be able to contribute much going forward also

Hopefully just even 1 decent player requests a trade to us - our first round pick should be on the table

What type of player (ie position/ attributes) do you think are the greatest need/s ?

I wouldn’t be keen to trade our first round pick after watching Gavalas for us and other high picks around the league the past couple of seasons. The way the pathways are set up now for the girls, a high pick should be as prized as it is in the men’s draft, and only on the table when really top line players are on the move. Even more prized for us because North gets arbitrarily shut out of the top end.

In any case, why would another top player come to North Melbourne. The incentives required to lure somebody like that across would be better off channelled toward retaining the several top players we already have.

Success

we are arguably the best vic side (Pies/dees around the mark)

could get interstate vic girls or vic girls who want success in struggling teams like Greiser, Conti, Ellie McKenzie, Patrikios, Marinoff (originally from vic) etc

Doesn't explain why Tayla Harris, as a meaningless random example, would go to North over the similarly competitive but much wealthier Collingwood. The only thing that would alter such a decision is a personal relationship of some sort, which is out of our control.

Marinoff btw is SA born-and-raised and, like Conti etc, a midfielder. Not an area we need to bolster, so not sure why you're bringing those players up.

Jeez Patriokios would be a great get. No getting around the fact that - as much as I love her work - Kearney has one year left maybe? Her speed isn't there, her strategic mind and hardness is worth keeping, but not for much longer.

So the tassie nab league team lost their elimination final on the weekend by 1 point 28-29

On the positive side our tassie academy girls Perri King was the top disposal winner for them with 18 and Amy Prokopiec kicked 2 goals 3

Very keen to get these 2 in the draft with later picks

We already traded a first rounder for one of the league's better users off half back, but she doesn't get picked ahead of hack-kickers who get outbodied by midgets.
