Exactly, it takes a few years to judge whether he has drafted well or not. But on what we know, if these last two drafts don’t come through then he needs to go in a couple of years.
I think if you look at his drafts 2010, 2011 and 2012 he ballsed it up and rightly should be under pressure. Finding a few wins with mature agers (howlett, hibberd, bags) has essentially hidden how bad these drafts were
2010-2012 hits: Heppell, Daniher, Gleeson
2010-2012 misses: steinberg, browne, davis, ross, kavanagh, jerret, N’OB, Ashby, van unen, kommer and gregory
So his ability to find young talent in the national draft was weak through this period. 3 wins from 14 picks and one of those a father son prospect!
2013 he went 2 from 2 and upgraded dalgleish (oops) but a good night.
2014-2016 drafts we have two confirmed wins in parish and mcgrath. Two serviceable mature agers in brown and hartley. You have eades. The rest are all still question marks: lang, lav, Redman, morgan, ridley, begley, mutch and clarke. If in two years they aren’t proven performers there needs to be a change. We can’t go forward if our we’re not getting it right on draft night.
Yes he did well holding the list together during the saga but chiefly we need hits on draft night and
