Wouldn't touch either Gibbs or Bennell with a barge pole. Bennell's injury problems may be fixable, but he's had years to tidy up his off-field stuff and hasn't. All the talk about him and Charlie being off the rails at the Suns - since Charlie has been at Port and away from Bennell I can't recall Charlie putting a foot wrong off-field, Bennell seems to have just continued on.
SPP young don't let bald head trick you . We have some vintage in mid now but cliff close .No way!
Key defenders can come from the rookie list. Just pick a bunch of Grundy types and failed KPP and find one that plugs the hole.
Frampton sign ? Not close to being an AFL footballerThis is our list of uncontracted players
Patrick Ryder - trade
Matthew Broadbent - ? Probably retire. Maybe 1 year contract if he wants it. Trent McKenzie - delist
Billy Frampton - sign! He might leave for opportunity.
Karl Amon - offer contract but if he wants to leave then getting good value for him when he’s in career best form is good business
Jack Trengove - delist
Kane Farrell - must sign.
Riley Bonner - sign.
Aidyn Johnson - delist
Peter Ladhams (3rd year rookie) - must sign!
Justin Westhoff - 1 year deal.
Cam Hewett (14th year rookie) - delist
Martin Frederick (1st year category B rookie) - keep on rookie list
S. Gray - TRADE. For the love of god trade him while he has trade value even just to protect Hinkley from himself.
K. Pudney (1st year category B rookie) keep on rookie list
T. Cox 1st year rookie - keep on rookie list.
Depending on draft picks and incoming and outgoing trades some of those seasoned players down as delist like Trengove etc could be kept if needed for leadership in the seconds.
