Doing a puzzle with Hayward
Play in a simulated football league - find great movies and TV shows - play Werewolf - play video games (try our Minecraft server) - argue about politics - listen to music - keep up with science news - play board games - just gasbag - discuss true crime - and so much more.
No and yes! Everyone is always going to Xmas parties!!! One present, instead of two!!!Hmm. Kerry? And were you born so close to Xmas bookings for bday dinners were a real pain?
I'm turning this into a positive.Don’t think our recruiting has been good at all, actually shocking imo plus what we let go
But not the thread for that
Our drafting has been very good recently.I'm turning this into a positive.
Personally I think our recruiting in recent seasons has been great (especially our drafting).
2019 - Too early to call but I like the look of Stephens and Gould. Taylor and Werner could also be quite astute picks.
2018 - Blakey is an academy selection. But Rowbottom looks to be an incredible selection (and how we got that pick is even better). I also quite liked McInerney's game on the weekend.
2017 - We didn't know Ling was going to have this many injuries but McCartin was a great pickup and Stoddart is showing signs.
2016 - Florent (A player who can go in and under and break away from congestion, BIG TICK). Hayward easily best 22 another tick. Maibaum has had injuries but shown signs. Ronke as a pick up in the rookie draft was also good value.
2015 - Mills, Dawson, Papley and COR.... Don't really need to say anything else.
Yeah we have missed a few selections but all clubs will, personally I think our drafting has been exceptional.
Now our trading.
2019 - Taylor, Gray and Brand - It's early days but each of these players will play a role for us. No one cost an arm and a leg as well.
2018 - Clarke and Thurlow. Thurlow was a bit of a bust, but Clarke is still a role player. Both were picks after 60 that we wouldn't have likely used.
Traded out Hanners who is continuing to struggle with injury. Rohan is good value in a top side but was an enigma with us.
2017 - Traded out Sam Murray - In hindsight that worked out quite well.
2016 - yeah we f’ed up. But Nanks was behind Naismith and Sinclair at the time. We also didn't have the space to keep Titch. The trades combined with others helped net us - Florent, Hayward and Maibaum.
2015 - Jetta for Sinclair (has worked out well for us and WCE). Bird for points to go towards Mills.
We have to remember we also had a trade ban and salary cap issues from contending for a flag. Personally I think we are rebuilding the list very well.
