WE have 5 ruckman on the list so in normal circumstances that should do us nicely. Lots of grade A young talent - time to beef up with some mid-age midfield class (would love a Yeo or Duncan or such).Need a ruck at this stage given Aliir has had to do the job for the last two weeks. Sinclair out injured followed by Cameron has led us with very little.
Should have a live top 5 pick for the first time in over a decade.
2022 afaikThe Swans have a history of poaching a big key forward to be their marquee player.
They have had Plugger, Barry Hall and now Buddy, never afraid to get the cheque book out and get creative. Buddy’s contract expires in 2021 where he will likely retire so no doubt the Swans are already planning behind the scenes.
Ben Brown’s contracted until 2020 so might be an ideal fit, or they could go for someone like De Goey or Charlie Curnow.. Also would not surprise me if they target Brodie Grundy who is out of contract next year.
I think it would be in the ball park. It would probably be a fair deal, or at least a lot more fair than what North fans think Papley is worth. They want him, but they only want to pay a second rounder for him for some reason.It's Carlton's first pick this year from the Crows enough for Papley ?
