Reid is definitely the hope for CHB. Otherwise our only other hope is Anthony to full back and Brown to CHB. I'd say our first pick next year will be a key position back....espcially with a shallow draft you'd think the kpp's will go early.



Hopefully our future midfield next year will have the names Sidebottom and Beams as well.

I was a little shitty we went for Rounds over Lisle this year. It's my hope that Reid will become our CHB:)

The spine is vitally important....but is it overrated?

No use having a good spine if the depth in the 22 is average. You also don't need to have the best spine to win a flag. Hawks probably lacked a full back, Cats a full forward.

Plus the onball division is just as important as the spine.



But i think when teams are recruiting, the first thing they look to fill is the spine and they build the team around that.
