We just have to stick with Jones. The one good thing Port have done this year is show faith in a whole group of young players.
Agree , i like what he's got ... it hasn't quite happened for him yet but he certainly passes the eye test .We just have to stick with Jones. The one good thing Port have done this year is show faith in a whole group of young players.
We pick 1 or 2 each year to play, and we've got a stack of them in the 2s playing well.
We'd need to trade a B Crouch or Wayne Milera and pick 19 to get Pick 2.Be nice to trade up to pick 1 and 2.
Don't know what it would cost. We probably don't have enough currency.
Rowell, Anderson and throw a deal at Grundy the following year.
Would set us up for a loooooong time.
While the speculation is interesting for discussion, I think until we know which teams want our Pick 1 and the speculative draft order of the talent order has reached equilibrium its hard to know what may or may not be acceptable for Pick 1.Even if we do end up with pick #1 and decide we want to trade down for two or more mid-r1 picks, it wont be easy to do that, I think.
Obviously getting the first one is easy but the second one would be hard, the third one even harder. GC have #2 & #13 but they're probably unlikely to be interested, GWS is the only other club with 2 firsts (#7 & #16) and have their own problems getting their Academy player and more.
So getting 2 or 3 r1 picks for #1 will need to involve two or more clubs. Maybe if there was a big name player changing clubs maybe we could get involved and dig out a mid-r1 pick somehow.
