Yep. And first year in with both injured, the media [ and probably us too] derided their decision. Worked out great for them.Would a club really be spending much draft capital there? Got one key pillar in McKay, sure spend big on another key but that would be about it
Melbourne are really the only recent premiers that have spent a lot of draft capital on backmen
Saints to get their 2 key backs , gave up Pick 6 for Jake Carlisle and if you can work out the convoluted Dougal Howard deal your a better man they me- probably came out as a second. So a bit of a draft capital there .
Of these 3 sides the Hawks backline looks best in quantity certainly. Key big 6'6 backs probably less so, but good for lock-down , intercepting and setting up backs. Suspect their drafting will target the other areas of the ground the next 2-3 years.
