Of course he’s peaked. But he would have been a free hit trade wise in an area that we could use improvement in. Whereas a young kid will (theoretically) cost a lot in trade value, and in truth while we will try to woo a few we probably won’t be the club any of them choose. If we had gone hard for Rockliff he was far more gettable than someone like Kelly, and is totally is Essendon’s age range.
Having said that, like Ants I wasn’t expecting to get him as it never sounded like we were in the race.
