Maybe they can finally merge with North and move down to Tassie
Yes.Didn’t they play Southport?
That's it but pick swap of firsts. With Adelaide bottoming out the trade actually didn't end up so bad for them. I wonder what the true story was but it is unlike recent Richmond to leak who our first pick might be so probably misinformation. Nevertheless I will watch on with keen interest development of both lads.Yes.
From memory, Stocker is the guy that Silvani ( as the then Carlton recruitment manager) fell in love with.
In the 2018 draft he thought Richmond were going to select Stocker at pick 19,
so he live traded Adelaide for pick 18 to get Stocker.
Could be wrong, but I think Stocker cost Carlton a first in 2018 and dropped 4 or five places with their first in 2019.
We picked RCD at 19.
Like Essendon, they are following the Richmond early noughties list management blueprint. Long may it continue.The biggest issue for Carlton is targeting the wrong types of players during trade week. Saad and Williams are half back flankers and they take up $1.5m worth of salary cap space. Yet they still have not addressed their weaknesses in the midfield.
