Congrats to Andy, but also hats off to Jackets… worthy #1 pick that has exceeded expectations (which is hard given it is such a rare prize for EFC!!)
Alongside our three AA players… you can now safely safe that we have enough true A grade talent to be a serious contender over the next 5 years.
I’m super excited about seeing McGrath develop further and I don’t think he is going anywhere. Connors will push the $$ but the kid seems to love the club and I think we will lock him in to a long term deal.
The thought of a midfield rotation of McGrath, Parish, Heppell, Zerrett, Zaharakis, Fantasia, Walla droooooooooooool. That is 7 genuine, proven “A-grade” level players imho… plus you add JD and Hurley at either end… possibly Hooker too and you realise we are really building something special in this list.
Fark and to think of the bad days when we were discussing whether Dyson or Howlett was the better 4th option!! eeek.
