So Jimmy Bartel suggests in The Age that Adelaide should target Francis this trade period. Not advocating this, but out of interest what would be an acceptable trade for Essendon?
WHO THEY SHOULD TARGET:
Aaron Francis. South Australian boy who is still learning the AFL craft and building the engine to play sustained football at the highest level. He is a highly touted junior who is a natural football talent. Francis has played across half-back and is strong in the air. At 193 centimetres he is the modern half-back size, in the mould of Lever. His composed and powerful kicking would suit the Crows’ kicking game well, especially with the wealth of forwards they have hitting up at the ball.
