No we ■■■■■■■ couldn’t have.
Melbourne traded up to pick 3, which became pick 4 because of Academy picks, we had pick 4&5, which became picks 5&6.
Melbourne took Clayton Oliver at pick 4, having traded up to ensure they could get him. We took Parish at pick 5 and then Francis at pick 6.
Didn’t Francis’ brother did the year he was drafted and he comes from a close knit family. In hindsight it would probably have been best for the young man to stay with his family in SA.
