    I guess there is always a player that just bobs up and surprises, happens every year.

    Re: Other club trade talk

    I wonder if Ryder makes them worse by taking ruck minutes away from Marshall. It's quite possible, hence many teams don't play two rucks anymore.

    Leading the comp in 1%ers in 2018 proves it for mine.
    Hinkley wanted to make him a swingman, which I don't think he is.

    That includes Dougal Howard who will be an absolute gun KPD. Port played him out of position before dropping him.

    Elite interceptor.

    And we have the no 1 & 4 contested marks in the competition up forward now. Combined with our tall midfield, that's a hell of a lot of marking power around the ground.

    Next year's pick downgrade is likely from the 30s into the 40s, we keep pick 13 and get two genuine bookends we sorely needed.

    Outstanding trade period.

    Re: Roarke Smith

    The 10th best state league player may well be the 90th best prospect. Most are pretty young anyway - 'mature agers' are often ~21 or 22 years old (e.g. Moz, Gardner were both 22 when rookied).
