Mid Year Draft
« on: March 23, 2019, 02:26:26 PM »
With the injury to Rancey, we should have a chance to pick someone up in the mid draft. What do you think we need and who might be available ?

We've got until round 10 to look around as the midseason draft is on May 27.

If Garth or Balta don't work out as Rance's replacement then of course we'll need to chase a key defender from the state leagues. If either can fill the role in our back six then I would add to our midfield depth. Find the next early-mid 20s later developer as we did with Lambert.

Lachlan Delahunty (Subiaco) if we want to go the mature route whichwe probably should, though he's listed as a utility.. :shh

Harry Nolan if we want anorther kid. :shh :shh

If the kids stand up then get another mid. M.Grigg, Lentini ,Templeton, Pickett, Meadows, Smallwood, Nelson Scharenberg.... :shh :shh :shh

EDIT: actually even if the kids do stand up we probably still need KPD depth to cover injuries... :shh :shh :shh :shh

Collingwood key position player Sam McLarty was delisted when Jordan Roughead arrived despite being named emergency seven times last year and with clear upside.

Former Bulldogs rookie Nathan Mullenger-McHugh is a 196cm key position player this year playing at Box Hill.

Former North Melbourne and Geelong key defender Aaron Black — playing for Geelong’s VFL side — is another who clubs are again scrutinising.

As a delisted player Goddard would still be eligible, even if retired players like Cyril Rioli — who had a year on his contract — have to be retired for a year to come back through the mid-year draft.

RICHMOND

Mid-season availabilities:
One (Alex Rance, ACL)
What they need: A versatile tall
Filled to March 15: Mav Weller (Remaining spot from Rookie Draft), Sydney Stack (Remaining spot from Rookie Draft)

The Tigers have some things to think about, with champion defender Alex Rance (knee) out for the season and Shaun Grigg (knee) and Jayden Short (elbow) on the shelf indefinitely. They played in round four without Ryan Garthwaite, so they seem to be comfortable with their defensive mix. Having said that, a key-position player who could play at either end and provide support for Toby Nankervis could appeal. Noah Balta is filling that position at the moment, but Richmond could look for a more readymade option.

If Short is still on the LTIL by round 10 along with Rance then I think we will get two picks in the mid-season draft.

The Tigers used the new pre-season supplemental selection period to fill the last two spots on their list with WA youngster Sydney Stack and delisted Saint Mav Weller.

It leaves them and the rest of the competition with less than six weeks to scour the country for potential reinforcements at the mid-season draft.

“There’s always other injuries and all sorts of things can happen. We’re approaching it with a view that we’ll have some sort of opportunity (to take someone), but you never know,” Balme said.

“We’ve obviously discussed it. We haven’t made any decisions on it.”
