That's a really good suggestion actually. Having him and Lloyd on our half forward flanks would make our forward line dramatically better than 2018. Although the idea of recruiting an indigenous player seems almost impossible for us given our lack of them in the first place (although Trengove has been pretty involved with the community over his career so that helps).

I'd be happy to trade for him (provided he wanted to come here) even if it involved our first rounder this year. He's a durable player, extremely quick and consistently high performer with X-factor which is something we desperately need.
Stump up the cash to get Sexton in as a FA too to help lure him down. Another small/mid sized player with genuine goal sense. Would have won our goal-kicking award last year.

Terrible news on Morris. Has the pre-season supplementary signing period finished?
It closes today, which likely makes it too late for us :(

To put an optimistic spin on it, not signing someone means we don't have to place Morris on the long term injury list, which could open him up to a mid-season return (like in 2018) if the injury isn't too serious. Will have to wait and see

Picko (no date or certainty if he will come back) its been a year so not sure what can change that hasn't in the last year but I'm no expert in the area, Boyd no real return date could be half year out before he is even considered for full load of training, now Morris seems we are already 3 players down for the year.

The main three guys I think we could consider to pick up:
  • Ryan Gardner (delisted by Geelong last year, playing for Footscray) - KPD but kicked 6 goals in a game as a forward in the VFL so is versatile
  • Reuben William (previously delisted by Brisbane, playing for Footscray) - not as big a fan, but is already training with the AFL side so probably the most likely option if we elect to pick someone up today
  • Matthew Hammelmann (previously delisted by Brisbane, playing in the NEAFL) - key forward now, but also played as KPD in the AFL as Yojimbo said, could be a decent option if we choose to bring Naughton back permanently into the backline

Well we’ve got an hour.
