Plus our need for another key defender at this point is not high.I doubt sos would have done the trade if we wanted dekoning. He would have waited after geelongs Pick like he did last year waiting for stocker
Apparently the 'go home' factor is pretty high, it might be the reason he is sliding a bit.Why would every club turn their backs on Deven ?? Must have interviewed really badly or told them all he would only play for a WA team.
3rd highest ranking of all the players this year
Sure did....he really rated Philp....also had Kemp sliding to 17, so he was pretty much on the mark.Knightmare had him at 24
Great move by SOS.Gould or Kemp for me.
I am fairly sure Mick Ablett said on the Fox Footy broadcast that it has since come out that Richmond was keen on Philp at its first pick so Carlton did well to jump back up from Pick 22 to Pick 20. Think 10cp posted something similar at the time.Sure did....he really rated Philp....also had Kemp sliding to 17, so he was pretty much on the mark.
Knightmare had Philp alongside Rivers, with players such as Bianco, Taylor, Gould, Schoenberg, Dow, Sharp and Williams lower than him.
He also mentioned in his draft thread that the Lions were also keen on him for extra speed in the mid....potentially would have picked him up at #23
