If the AFL award Carlton the first chance at the state wide players first from what I know they could do worse than picking Sam Collins from Box Hill as a defender, hopefully they don’t miss out like they did with Kane Lambert.

I reckon I'd prefer Lukosius. Played state league pretty much all year and apparently a few wraps on him.

Collins plays for Werribee, he has been very good in the VFL this season

I was kind of bummed we got rid of him - would have been great depth/push for a first team spot

Especially with Spurr & Johnno both retiring this season

He would have found it hard to hold down a spot with Pearce/Hamling/Wilson/Nhyuis/Logue all fit, however

When he was with Freo he was slower than a wet week, had mediocre disposal and looked below the required fitness level for an AFL footballer imo. Maybe he has improved a hell of a lot over the last year or so but he would want to to make it at the highest level.

Good as a shutdown back. I like him a lot, but I like old school players. Unfortunately offers very little with ball in hand and doesn't have a heap of pace.
You can afford to have one but at the time we delisted him, we didn't really need that. We've really struggled for a long time with movement out of the backline. I was surprised we didn't keep him for depth though.

I'd retire Rowe and get Collins if the special assistance allowed us to get him. But if there is a more ready made mid with speed in this age range I would get a mid first. Gold Coast may get it too, If that is the case Collins may go there, especially if May goes. I hope these are extra spots on list beyond normal for two years then you hopefully you get back in line with normal list sizes.
