    It would be incredulous if Batchelor won a spot before Lennon.

    Funny honest, I was having that exact conversation at work. Normally trade and draft period is "how's this guy still got a contract ? " " our list needs x" " we need more of this type of player" ....
    And now you watch the Crows, Brissy, the Dees (we must rubbish Teeza) pay overs and you go..... Yeah, nah our list actually stacks up well against the premiers....

    I'm happy to say how the hell has Hampson not been paid out and delisted for old times sake.

    I think all our big list changes will happen next year with older guys like grigg, Hampson and houli with younger guys going for their spots and then younger talent like Moore, Ellis, Chol, Menadue, Drummond if they can start showing improvement or not

    If Caddy can push through the middle more perhaps Lennon can play out of the fwd 50 more. Next year will be his last chance and he will know explicitly what will be required to get a gig. If he is half smart, he will go away and work on his tank, maybe take up Brazilian jiu jitsu or wrestling to work on his tackling and physicality and basically start to demand a position through executing the basics well. The goals and flair will come only after he consistently roles his sleeves up. Hope he can!

    Hey @colossus what do you know of a kid called Ben Miller. Foxtel had a draft show on and highlighted him as a star performer at the combine. 196cm good speed and agility.

    Haven't seen him written up in any of the early draft chances. Might be an option at 25

    If Batchelor plays in the ones, we are on the slide. Good VFL player.

    No

    No

    the Naish father/son seems a given , any chance we'd be considering the Lambert father/son but only if he falls very late in the draft ???

    “Jake has made an invaluable contribution to the club over the last 7 years. His strong work ethic has been second to none. During his time here he showed great professionalism and commitment to the club.

    “Ben is a resilient character and is held in high regard with the playing group. We wish both players well in their future endeavours.”


    The difference in positives between the two players as described by Richardson is stark, and indicates why Lennon was never really given much of a show in the seniors.

    I’d be happy for us to have a look at Crameri and / or Wellingham.

    Given Drummond is contracted...that must be the end of limbo.
