http://www.afl.com.au/news/2017-10-06/freo-talls-clarke-and-griffin-among-five-dockers-delisted With the departure of Spencer and still relatively raw experience/development of Mitch King & Filipovic, what would be to happen if Max does his knee and then Pedo does a hamstring the following week? I think picking up one of these two for peanuts as a DFA is imperative on a 2 year deal just to allow King & Filipovic the time they need. Clarke's the younger of the two, 28 at the start of next year and has been used forward on occasion for Freo, reasonably agile also. Missed all of 2017 with a knee issue however and maybe doesn't fit the competative mould we're after. http://www.fremantlefc.com.au/player-profile/zachary-clarke http://www.aflplayerratings.com.au/Ratings/Player/114741/Zac-CLARKE Griffin will be 32 at the start of next year and probably isn't quite as agile as Clarke or played forward as much. However he is a much more competative ruckman and has played senior football to good level this this in the AFL. http://www.fremantlefc.com.au/player-profile/jonathon-griffin http://www.aflplayerratings.com.au/Ratings/Player/110457/Jonathon-GRIFFIN Whichever way the club goes, if they were to go down this path. I think it's important the player was aware they were coming in as support only and that if we were having a good injury run they were be forced to play permanent forward or off the bench at Casey to ensure King & Filipovic were getting the required minutes in the ruck. I know Griffin is a WA local as opposed to Clarke (Oakleigh Chargers), so it may be more difficult to entice him across as opposed to Clarke. However due to his competitiveness and the fact he's played decent AFL football this year, my pick would be to entice Griffin across for 2 years.
