Jones is 185cm tall.
I know how tall he is. Greg Phillips was around the same height at that age, as I posted.

There is a bit of Greg about Lachy. The big body in a young player, Greg's pace as a young guy was very underrated and Lachy is quick, both playing league footy in a key position as a teenager, both crunching tacklers, not intimidated by senior players, willing to run and carry, strong overhead.

If the Crows were silly enough to use a top 10 draft pick trying to force us to match a bid on a player they don't need, I'd be tempted to make them live with the consequences of playing that game.
I wonder how they would feel if they bid pick 9 and we did not match. I know we want Jones, but do we rate him highly enough to match there, and do they really want to risk using pick 9 on a HBF player.

Actually yes you are right. We probably won't match and they will get stuck with a HBF they don't want

Why would they even want jones? They need kpp and mids. You can find defenders with mid draft to rookie picks.

half the last decades all-Aus small and medium defenders were probably rookie draft picks and the rest 2nd rounders onwards.
they got a couple of 196cm KPP last year:- Worrell & McAsey

they might get another KPP / Ruck this year:- Thilthorpe

If they get a 2nd pick for Brouch then they could get either:- Hollands or Phillips

and it looks like they will get Edwards, Borlase & Newchurch very cheaply (with picks 44, 48 & 60)

so that will leave for them picks 9, 20, 31 and the compensation pick they will get for Atkins going to the Suns (maybe either 2nd round or 3rd round and maybe after their pick for those rounds)

Remember we can match if they try and use pick 20, 31 or the compensation pick.

the problem pick is their pick 9 which was GWS (it is a pick that will go Higher due to Freo being 254pts in deficit).. it will be pick 8 which is 1551pts

the next problem is with our picks we have a 116pt deficit from last year we have to make up

we also have the problem with a few compensation picks being given out this year which pushes back our picks (so the draft points we have get lower and lower) at this stage the cows could get 2 (with BCrouch & Atkins going to other clubs) and their will probably be other clubs

the final problem is we cant go into debt for 2021 especially for the father sons & Academy players we have then ...

We will have to find a way to get more draft picks

Lol they have a massive dose of offended going on. Everything about getting one up on Port.

Must be an ambassador thing. Just enjoy your three-peat in season junk time you sad sack bunch of losers.

Today someone called up AA and told them Port's combined losses this year totalled 119 points. Of course it was horseshit.
Lol 2007 was 13 years ago. Imagine still hanging your hat on it. They seem more worried about it than us.

Lienert and Bonner will sort it.

Take a read of the draft thread. REH did some calculations which show that even if they bid at pick 9 we have a 2nd round pick worth of additional points beyond what is needed to match.

Absolutely nothing to worry about.

A player like Jones, yes. If it came for Taj, probably not.

If they do bid 9 for Jones, we then Trade Bonner and Lienert for 2nd and 3rd’s after the fact, live trading and watching Sydney exploit this, we would have learnt. The deals will be done prior, just needing to be executed.

If Borlase rest pretty well at the Combine, I wouldn’t be against spending a Second on him.
