    Re: 2021 Trade Target/s

    Sam Taylor is the one we should be going for. Tall, really good lockdown defender in the Harris Andrews mould. Would be hard to pry from GWS.

    Other options could include Josh Rotham, who is...

    According to footyjumpers.com they've never worn anything except the boring black and white stripes so unsure what Bad is referring to.

    Re: 2021 Trade Target/s

    I think his backup could be an option. Jack Payne, huge, has been ok in the games he has played. Up against it to get a game ahead of Andrews, Adams, Gardiner and Lester.

    Re: Time to pull the Liam Jones move.

    Presumably if anyone wanted him last year they could have grabbed him for free. Don't see how what has happened this year makes him any more desirable.

    Re: Time to pull the Liam Jones move.

    Bruce cannot go back. His go to move is "launch himself at the footy and hope he atleast creates a spillage". He does that in defence and it's gonna be carnage.

  10. Re: Always Right Match Committee - Round 8 Vs Carlton 2021

    Gardner is definitely both those things, plays...

    I liked the bit where Hunter managed to keep the ball in and from the resultant chaos got it back and hit up a leading player in the pocket. Fairly positive.

    No he does not.
