So we can match or nominate in either draft which is handy.

What did the Lions do wrong this draft? We stole two academy players, Essendon took Lachlan Johnson who the Lions wanted in the Rookie draft.

Kudos to Brisbane for having a great academy. Time will tell.

I can't see a team making a bid for a player they didn't rate at that pick just to keep another team honest. It would be counter-productive to that team.
That's usually correct but in this case they will know we have no choice but to take him, the risk of him playing well at another club is too great.

A bit like when Jack Silvagni came around at Carlton and Essendon made a bid.

Now, after finally watching the full game I wouldn't have had MRJ in my top three although not a bad game, would still like to see a bit more running in his game, does seem to have slimmed ever so slightly in the caboose region though.
Also worth remembering that after talking to a couple of guys I know that dominate up there, the standard is like a reasonable country game.
