Sounds encouraging at this early stage. I’m a on the fence type when it comes to lid on/lid off with Francis. I will only really get excited once I see it being put together - although we have seen possibilities that this can happen.
Wonder why the two SA clubs wern’t interested? Did Essendon want at least a late first rounder or no deal? Can’t imagine Essendon would have been demanding top 10. In any case, I think it is much better to see what we can make of him vs some second round pick in a weak draft. Hopefully we see strong effort throughout the preseason.
