No thanks to Cerra overrated for me Bolton makes the game look easy plays a variety of roles and a match winner.

Cerra is very happy in WA. Not looking to come home. He bought a investment property in Fitzroy last year but its for life after football.

From the outside, Freo have a solid young core of mids who are going places. Often that togetherness and being on a journey is enough to keep the kids

We definitely don’t need Cerra.
Stockpiling talent for the sake of it is not necessarily the right path for us. Drafting for position is critical now. We need KP players across the board to support our senior ageing players.
Sam Taylor would be a great start. Williams from West Coast looks good too

Agreed definately need some KP players brought in.

Forwards and Backs, seriously Garth and Miller might be out the door at years end, and Jack or Dave might pull the pin.

Taylor was a miss but we weren't the only ones.

Balta,, CCJ and Taylor in one draft hey wow how good a result that wouldve been ...................especially now Higlet up and left.. hindsight is great.

Higgins is limited for where he is best utilised, and Taylor is devloping into a top KPD.

To be honest, if the Tigers are out of contention or not involved when the Frockers are playing off for a flag I'd probably support therm in a GF against most other clubs....unless they behave like campaigners ala Port or Bears.

Great work there Tigermad.
In retrospect, I’d almost pick 8 players in front of Higgins from that group of 12.
I’d even go as far as to say that apart from Wil Walker and Fogarty, Higgins may be the biggest disappointment in the group considering his draft position
