Recruiting

Post by Darley on Tue Dec 07, 2010 3:00 pm

Its says on SA footy that after the draft today that South will sign 2 other interstate recruits.
I wonder who they would be.Its only a guess but I would think another key forward like
B. Fisher & a midfielder like G. Moss or M. Sewell

who does everyone think will play CHB this year?
Carter showed some promise but needs to bulk up, will he be able to play CHB in 2011?

Daniel Talia or Andrew Ainger (or an upcoming rookie draft pick) are my guesses

Has anyone heard any whispers of new signings?
We were apparently in negotiations with a few players.
If we do manage to nab a couple more players one would think it would be soon as all the drafts are over,and pre season training is well and truly in full swing!

I note Tom Mcnamara went with Melbourne's last rookie pick. Would have been handy. Haven't heard any other whispers.

i dont think we need to recruit midfielders what we need are tall players that can take a pack mark or at least bring the ball to ground pretty hard to find these type of players that are not playing afl

No mail on what players we are talking to! - I recall that last season we were to recruit a ruckman out of the WAFL whose club would not release him so he played in the WAFL this season, if he is out of contract, he may be one that we are speaking to?

The one rumour that I have heard is that we may have a new sponsor for this season and that sponsor is rumoured to want exclusivity on the Guernsey for advertising - watch this space I suppose!

Rumour doing the rounds at the moment is that the club has signed Brent McLeod from the Geelong Falcons. Nothing official as yet out of the club though.

Kicked four goals in the TAC cup final for Geelong, was recruited to Geelong from a country side. Was tipped by several commentators to be picked in the AFL draft but was passed over on the day. Is only a young lad yet there appears to be a number of comparisons with Nick Liddle, hair colour for a start!

Height and weight should be determining factors.

Goal kicking is a big plus for him.

We do need to look more for players the minimum size of Josh Thewlis, we do need to bulk up a lot, we know the boys are doing the hard work in the weights room.

We did get high standard players from interstate last year along with others who failed to make the grade and went home mid season for reasons only known to them.

What we need are players that are going to take us a long way from the bottom of the ladder, if we keep recruiting smalls and skinny's then we will be in for another lean year, no matter how much work is done in the weights room.

My mail is we have pinched MacLeod from a very eager Bays - but would not bank in him being of the class of Liddle for a few years yet. hard to see any clubs doing too much recruiting from now on - Suggest we willl now work with what we've got, which looks to have a lot more depth than 2010.

I would be stoked if we get another tall!
Our midfield seems fine,we just need another player capable in the forward line and in defence.
Surely if we have a good run with injuries there will be no reason why we cannot improve significantly on last seasons poor showing.
