Probably won’t be popular but depending how trade period goes or who we def think we could get in the draft I’d prob keep Merrett on account of the fact we have zero outside mid depth. He can also play as a small fwd or HBF’r.
Contract wise would cost nothing. And ultimately you need to maintain some depth on your list.
Certainly not a best 30 players in a strong flag worthy side. But even those need fringe semi experienced players as depth, as per Shaun Edwards getting picked up.
Bird no. Stringer will take inside mid spot & we also need to be getting Langford and LAV, and to a lesser extent Begley & Clarke into guts.
