Even if that was so. The draft is still a risk!
We would 100% take a ready made known gun who physically can impact immediately and is in the age demographic we have been targeting of recent times over hoping to draft someone equivalent at pick 12-18 who “might” end up as good.
We want to win a flag in 2019-21 whilst Hooker an Hurls are still about we go after Wines.
Langford. LAV. Begley … or Stringer for that matter have proven nothing as inside mids.
Sloane would likely be preferable short term as an unrestricted F/A but as a far as long term goes Wines would be a massive get for our team.
