I think technically we could have added Tippa 2


#1125

Anyone know if today means Neagle ain’t playing for us next year?


#1126

Unless we decide to give Clark the heave ho and sign Neagle instead, or unless we’ve managed to find some bizarre loophole that lets us cat B rookie the kid, he ain’t gonna be on our AFL list next year.


#1127

Wasn’t Merv an Irish born Indian? Definitely from a non-AFL background.


#1128

Thanks Humble.

I wonder if they take the punt and decide Jok is their break glass in emergency ruckman, meaning Zac Clarke not needed?


#1129

I don’t think we can pick up Neagle in the way we’re potentially getting Clarke.


#1130

Well, given Draper torched Clarke Tuth in the ruck…


#1131

And Tuth reportedly did well against Draper…


#1132

Damn it…


#1133

He did better than most against Sammy, his leap was something Sam wouldn’t have had much exposure to.

It didn’t take long for Drapes to adjust to it though.


#1134

We can now. Anyone who nominated for the draft is eligible for the upcoming supplementary period. There were just a bunch of players (eg Clarke) who were eligible even if they didn’t nominate.


#1135

If someone gets does an ACL this season then Neagle would be the first one we would pick


#1136

Why?


#1137

Well, you know … if Hooker did an ACL Neagle would be the perfect replacement.


#1138


#1139

I mean it in the way of someone like a mid or Forward injuring themselves long term


#1140

Would expect in that case we’d be looking at a mature aged replacement who was ready to go?


#1141

Neagle would be 21 next year so he would count as an mature age recruit


#1142

But no way would he be considered “ready to go”, given his lack of state league exposure to this point.


#1143

I wanna see Neagle and Adam Tipungwuti in our VFL squad, we need a replacement for Hind, thanks to the aints
