So this thread is only for posts related to Key forwards we could recruit, trade for or get by free agency.
My definition of a key forward is a player 197cm or taller. Not AJ, Reef or checkers size.

I keep moaning about it in other threads but have no idea if any draftees are coming in that would suit us.

I saw today on X that Lobb has been named as a target for us. No no no no no.

Please keep this to Key forwards only, there are plenty of other threads for draft and FA talk.

I agree, Frampton proved this in the GF. He played a negating role essentially to keep Andrews accountable, imagine a KF with goal kicking nouse and pack crashing marks.
 
What is all this obsession with key forwards needing to be close to 200cm?

A very good 192 - 195cm player who can play smart in a tall forward role, who leads to the right spot and can take a contested grab can be every bit as dominant as a big bulldozing pack crasher and this team doesn’t absolutely necessitate the latter.

As others have pointed out, we’d be snapping hands off for a Tex, Curnow or Hogan type, all of whom are sub 197cm.

The best KPF in the afl is 196cm.
