Who will we lose now that we are almost a power

Recommended Posts

It is always a huge task to hold onto players who do not get a game but have serious talent. If we go as far as I think we are about to, there will be a dozen clubs trying to pillage our list. It is a serious issue for us.

i would nominate Jaydn Hunt and Tom Bugg as the most likely targets. Sadly because I think especially Hunt has serious talent given his speed and ball smarts. Speed IMHO is not one of our strengths. I would hate to see him go.

The question is what can we get for them, and what do we really need?

Let's worry about that at the appropriate time. Now is definitely not it, we have more important things to concentrate on.

In fairness to the OP, it is a good question, but let’s put this one on ice for a few weeks..

The last time we were about to become a "A Power" was when Bailey was coach.
Seems some supporters have learnt nothing.

I think it is the next set of contract renewals where it may get difficult. Until then, just enjoy what the boys are doing each week.

Seems like a pretty bizarre manifestation of MFCSS to me!

'We're doing well now, who are we going to lose?'.

Anyway, definitely not a topic for 5 hours before a semi-final.

Another quality mid to replace Nathan is somthing we need to look at. Also Lewis will be moving on soon. A crumbing small forward and a back up ruck. Not too much.

Do you know something? Are there whispers from inside about these two?

It used not to be. But at the moment we are moving the ball more quickly than any other team in the AFL.

I agree our ball movement is terrific and speedy. Intimidating at times to opponents, and fabulous to watch, but with a few honourable exceptions don’t think our players are particularly speedy across the ground, but our game plan more than makes up for it.
