Pretty sure Zac is under contract for 2019 with usNot surprised by the signing of Stanley & Abbott. Going by how Geelong have been working in the trade period, they see our forward line as the biggest problem at the moment, especially the forward pressure aspect which is why we've got Dalhause and Rohan, and told Murdoch & Menzel to look elsewhere. Maybe they see Big Sav and Blicavs as possible support to Stanley & Abbott for the next few years. Smith is still out of contract next year, so I wonder what will happen to him now. Will he be delisted?
From AFL.com.au yesterday
So it's just the 3 players the club told to look elsewhere, and GHS who is off to the suns.From AFL.com.au yesterday (note,
Unsigned: George Horlin-Smith (unrestricted free agent), Jamaine Jones, Daniel Menzel (unrestricted free agent), Jordan Murdoch, Sam Simpson, Jackson Thurlow
There was some conjecture during the year, but KROCK got involved with it as well and Kingy tweeted it was a end of 2019 for Z Smith - so that's what we have gone with - given he asked Zac he said 2019.
Was unsure of this as well, unless the club uses a junk pick to upgrade him to Senior list - but the 2 year deal suggests to me Henry, Zuthrie and Simpson will be off the rookie list with only Jones still there but on the 3rd year of his rookie time allocation.2 years for Simpson so he is a upgraded then?....as next year will be his 3rd year as a rookie
IT as annouced unofficially in interview on KROCK - Stanley answered a question from Kingy and Benny tweeted that Abbott had a 2 year deal... that the club has announced a while ago.Interesting how you were able to update Stanleys and Abbotts contracts months and weeks ago respectively in cat scans,Daz the Oracle.
Yep. Stanley seems a confidence player. He is now our undisputed number 1 ruck. With the new contract he knows his position is stable. Fingers crossed he can play all of 2019 as he did his last games.Stanley needs to be the Stanley of the last 3 months not the previous 3 years. Its that simple.
Have to agree on Simpson, I would've only given him a 1 year extension given all the departures... But who knows, maybe they see something we don't, he really needs a lot of gym time to see if there is improvements, but he does seem miles behind Fogs, Narkle, Parfitt... milesWe get the contracts for fringe players so so wrong.
Why give Simpson two years? Completely unnecessary. I mean I don't have Narkle or Fogarty in my best 22 and both would be miles ahead of Simpson in similar roles.
Going to be tough next year at delisting time when very ordinary footballers in Abbott, Parsons, Zuthrie and Simpson are all contracted. Gee whiz.
