did someone say on another thread (gaff maybe?) that we would be keen on mcgovern. two questions. which mcgovern? and, was it that he is available and we SHOULD be interested or that we ARE interested? i can't see where either would fit into our team as is..

I’d look at Freos Sean Darcy for a backup/team ruck for Gawn.

20 yo

201cm

111kgs

From Geelong Falcons and has played 8 games averaging 34 HOs per game 

thoughts?

That's the exact reason we don't know how good he could he could be. He was a relatively  high draft pick. Putting him on a rookie list won't hurt and if he's still injured all of next year delist him.

Watch list- Sloane, Gaff, Mackay

interested in - Wright (Suns), Darcy (Freo) Campbell (Dogs).  Backup rucks behind Gawn but all are also forward capable. 

Speed is also in focus. Dahlhaus?

Delistings probables - Mckenna, Vandenburg, Johnstone

Delistings possibles- JKH, Kent, Pedersen, King,  Bugg, Filipivic (r)

trade possibilities  - Frost, Tyson

Sloane is too old for our list. Gaff is what we need, Mackay is what we don't need.

I don't think we need a back up ruckman, Weideman will do a good enough job until youngsters like King, Filipovic and Bradtke step up.

Dahlhaus hasn't had a kick for 2 years damaged goods.

Has a bit of weight to lose but I thought he looked pretty promising last season. Definitely wouldn’t be against this.

Probably Buckley’s as he’d be the next great hope after Sandi?

Any backup for Gawn, has to be a powerful mark, around the ground, and packs.

His backup, has to have lots of marking stats, this should be the primary stat, at an young age.  The hitouts will come with strength, but the marking ability is there, or not there.

 

Hitouts are overrated, unless they are in our players hands directly,,, and then the opposition will just hunt our Mids closely.  We have to get the clearances, and we have to control the flow of the game, around the wings and flanks, with marking ability, and top kicking.
