Trust me, Redman and Ridley are definitely more than prospects.
Yep. That's why I named Redman as our possible rising star.
Mason Redman and Jordan Ridley showed great toe to fill the placings behind Langford on the grass, but Redman unfortunately suffered an injury following the trial and scans have confirmed a fracture to his ankle.
tragedy - hopefully nothing too bad - but fractured ankle means no running for a month or so and that pretty much kills off his fitness base leading into the season.
FFFFSSSSakeee!
That does it. No more trials for anyone!!!! Poor guy. Wonder if it needed to be pinned? Or compound fracture like my nephew got at school sports??

What wasI thinking? :shock:

Matt Dea then.
Got a surplus of medium defenders grass.

I loved Matty's work ethic and endeavor but he is depth at best.
Obviously not surplus to the club. Where was your mail on him being picked up as a rookie?
St Kilda took Hind. Matty was still training with the club so him being picked up isn't a shock.

I still think he's surplus, club clearly disagrees.
Essendon Football Club- We arent arrogant, just better.

I hate to be contrary but I don’t think he is surplus in the same way Zac Clarke is not surplus. Mature age, AFL experienced depth player who gives the squad reasonable quality in the event of injury etc. More so now with Baguely likely to continue his late career cameo as a defensive small forward, Gleeson still an unknown quantity after a year off and Saad/McKenna likely to be used in rebounding roles.

Dea is a safe bet to do a defensive job when needed.

Tend to agree with this.

Dea was very stiff to get the chop in the first place. Solid season, and was voted most courageous.
