With salary cap changes and maybe other rules to come in around list sizes, who will and won’t be on our list in 2021?
NOTE: I don’t know how long everyone’s contract is. This is just looking at them from a performance/list strategy view.
Tom Bellchambers -Retired
David Zaharakis - Traded
Tom Cutler - Potentially delisted
Orazio Fantasia - Traded
Jayden Laverde - Potentially Traded
Josh Begley - Traded/Delisted
Michael Hurley - Potentially Traded (Love you Bear)
Kobe Mutch - Traded/Delisted
Jacob Townsend - Traded Delisted
Shaun McKernan - Delisted/Traded
Conor McKenna - Retired
Mitch Hibberd - Traded/Delisted
Just my thoughts, what do you guys think?
apart from Lav i wouldn’t be disappointed
There’s a fair bit of chaff to bin that’s for sure.
Laverde isn’t one of them though.
To my knowledge these are the uncontracted guys:
Tom Bellchambers - retire
Martin Gleeson - free agent…keep if he wants to stay
Jayden Laverde - delist or give 1 year (I’m 50/50). Wouldn’t get anything in a trade
Josh Begley - delist
Kobe Mutch - delist
Noah Gown - delist
Shaun McKernan - delist
Mitch Hibberd - delist
Jacob Townsend - delist (maybe keep if we get rid of Lav… I’d keep one of them at most)
Tom Cutler - delist (although I reckon there is a chance he’s contracted for next year)
I doubt it’s worth trading any of our old guys. We’d get nothing for Hurley or Zaka
I’m also doubtful that we’d get enough for Fanta to make it worthwhile. I’d think about it for a pick in the top 30, but I can’t see anyone paying that
Cannot see Hurley or Zaka being traded.
Without knowing contract details
Tom Bellchambers -Retire
Aaron Francis - Trade
David Zaharakis - Retire (No trade value)
Tom Cutler - Delist
Orazio Fantasia - Trade
Josh Begley - Trade or Delist
Michael Hurley - Retire or see out contract
Kobe Mutch - Delist (sadly, I like him)
Jacob Townsend - Delist
Noah Gown - Delist
Shaun McKernan - Delist/Retire
Conor McKenna - Retire
Mitch Hibberd - Delist
Henry Crauford- re rookie if no contract
Noah Gown? Come on. He is a project player who had a year with scratch matches. He stays
5-6 list changes only. Zaka and Hurley too old to trade. Both will finish when ready
Oh…I thought this was a Blitz member cull.
I had a list.
meh it’s irrelevant. most of the guys they’ll get rid of are outside the 22.
So next year you’ll still have
a cooked hurley
a cooked raz
a cooked zaka
a cooked hooker ( well that’s gonna get some weird replys)
in the starting 22.
may or may not have daniher
If you have mckenna you have a non committed guy with a foot out the door already and mentally shot cos of it.
Best bet, plan for 2022, then most of the decisions, like always with this club are taken out of their hands IF players decide to retire and or ask for a trade again when their current contract is up.
Any of the players already mentioned above plus the following including those already confirmed:
Where are Dods and Xav going?
I’m not sure any of them are ‘cooked’, but yes if they’re still on our list next year you’d be wanting to pump games into the kids for a good part of next year for sure.
I reckon Daniher will stay, McKenna IMO is gone, he’s been fit but hasn’t played. But if he’s homesick, fair enough.
Reasonable to rely on Blitz’s resources. A thread like this will get lots of people to ‘help’ with the details.
Wherever they want apply for vacant positions
