What rotten luck Devon. Good luck with surgery and rehab, see you again in 2020. However it does give one of our young players an opportunity.
Who will it be? And who will we choose in the draft?

Yeah, get well soon Dev. We need you back fighting fit. Such a key to our team and his downward form line this year, as a result of injury, has really hurt the team.

The mid season draft is interesting. Will any player be really AFL ready without a full preseason in “the AFL system”? How long will it take to integrate with the team, game plan, routine etc?

I hope we find a big bodied inside mid who can extract the ball from contested situations. There must be many players out there who are good enough but we’re unlucky at the time of drafting not to get selected or were simply late bloomers. Take a look at Walla for example. They are out there.

When the media is talking up a number of cut players including Jackson Merrett and Declan Mountford ... you know the quality isn't as thick on the ground as the hype makes out...

There do seem to be some State level rucks worth a look, but I suspect that many of the clubs will focus on some of the over 19 TAC type talent on show to avoid additional competition at the end of the year draft.

So with Smith out for the year, do we get 2 selections?

Do we get/need three if Daniher is out too?

We get as many as are on the LTI
Don’t have to use them, they are there...

Good thing SMack’s back...

Sadly, we can’t place players with no heart on the list, it’s not a medical condition apparently..,

Should Daniher be ruled out for the season, the Bombers would be able to open up a third selection at next week's Mid-Season Rookie Draft.

The two current selections have been created by Smith's setback and a season-ending ACL reconstruction to developing ruckman Sam Draper.
