I must have missed Ebert. He should be in, replacing Lienert.

Mitch Mead has been an SANFL listed player for us for 2 years.

Jackson Mead just came over from WWT Eagles, was playing for SA U18s, Can play 4 SANFL games for the Maggies before the draft.
Jackson was the one I know was playing for WWT. Didn't realise he did or could join across and play for us.

Not picked this week, but apparently anyone in our father-son Academy is eligible to play 4 games in the 2nd half of the season in their draft year if they don't play any games for their SANFL club before the U18s comp. He played none for the Eagles so we can use him.

So as long as we have enough draft points, we'll pick him up as F/S?

Yeah just mucking around with it before putting the actual teams on Thursday night. Does sound like Wines will play as you said.

we should trade Charlie, too unreliable and never performs against the good teams, Frampton will give at least the same on the scoreboard and maybe better, get rid of Charlie and free up some cash and keep Frampton

happy to delist Broadbent

also happy to trade Howard for the right deal because i do doubt his ability to do it consistently at AFL level, id prefer to play him as CHB but gee he does do some dumb things and often has periods where is opponent towels him up, im not sure if its bad coaching or bad player at this time

SPP is interesting, personally id rather ship off Wines and keep SPP, but being the captain (as weak as that is) i suppose we have to keep him, in any case if we are keeping Wines and we believe in atley & drew then its gonski for SPP

I think putting together a best 18 for Round 1 2020 is fairly easy.

B: T. Jonas, T. Clurey, H. Hartlett
HB: R. Burton, D. Howard, D. Byrne-Jones
C: X. Duursma, O. Wines, K. Amon
HF: B. Ebert, T. Marshall, C. Rozee
F: R. Gray, C. Dixon, P. Ladhams
R: S. Lycett, T. Boak, D. Houston

The bench, on the other hand, has plenty of spots up for grabs. SPP, Rockliff, Westhoff, Bonner, Butters, Farrell, Motlop, Watts, Drew, and our pick 10 (hopefully Dylan Stephens) all fighting for four spots. And you never know if somebody is going to come from the clouds like DBJ in '16, Houston in '17 and Amon in '19 to put their hand up for a spot.

The interesting thing is that you could quite conceivably see us lining up for Round 1 without any of our high profile 2017 recruits in the 22. Based on comparisons of players who play a similar role, Rockliff probably has to beat SPP and Drew, Motlop probably has to beat Farrell and Butters, Watts probably has to beat Westhoff. On recent form, none of those are guarantees.

It is an interesting competition for spots. I wonder if Farrell would have been strategically better off signing to a one year extension this time around to pressure the selectors for more game time next year? Modern footy is full of unforeseen pitfalls for players but sometimes it just pays to back yourself to the hilt to gain the better career outcome.

My Round 1 Team with the current list would be
FB: D.Byrne-Jones | T.Clurey | T.Jonas
HB: R.Burton | D.Howard | H.Hartlett
C: K.Amon | T.Boak | X.Duursma
R: S.Lycett | S.Powell-Pepper | D.Houston
HF: C.Rozee | C.Dixon | K.Farrell
FF: P.Ladhams | T.Marshall | R.Gray
I: Z.Butters | R.Bonner | W.Drew | O.Wines

Wines replaced by Rockliff if he goes
Would like to see Jonas not be an automatic inclusion
If we get Lukosious Ladhams probably drops out and we play a 3 tall 1 ruck system.
