There's still a bit of talent that didn't get drafted, Browne, Cox, Cripps, Long, Pegoraro, Dean and Avery to name a few.

Polson is a player who played rep footy and also the 1 senior game in the WAFL in which he did well. He tested well 2:90 for the 20 metres, and was in the top performers in the standing and running vertical jumps. I hope we are giving him some consideration, he has got some good attributes. What's the knock, is it his kicking?

Do we have spots available? I have no idea of how the list numbers now stack up.

Pretty sure we have 41 plus Colina. We are allowed 42 plus Colina, so I think today may be a bit of an anticlimax for us as we will likely just re-rookie Biggie.

What was the pick we passed on last night ?

Does that mean we can still invite players to train over the summer & select one of them like we did Stack ?

1 of the picks we passed on yesterday would have been used to promote a rookie, but they are now done after the ND I believe.

Rookie draft has become a farce.

It's supposed to be a draft for young players that were overlooked in the ND. Instead it's become a tool for clubs to manage their salary cap or list sizes.

yes. This is a reason I'm a bit wary about the talk of mid-season trading. If the AFL can't sort out all the loopholes in the current drafts and trade periods, they shouldn't be introducing another bunch of loopholes

Not a fan of Browne Tiges. Very rough around the edges-scrappy. Ordinary disposal. Bit unathletic towards being slow. Can see why he’s been overlooked despite big possession numbers.
