If we manage to do that, we will still have our two first round draft picks as well as the elite midfielder we desperately need to complete the rebuild started in 2012. I believe our list is building well, but we need another couple of top class mids with elite disposal to complete the picture. I don't know who that will be, but I wouldn't mind Dusty or Fyfe.
They're not the whole answer, but they would certainly boost us from competitive and probable finalist, to genuine contender. Imagine if you added two first rounders as well? As for Shiel, a source at Edithvale-Aspendale tells me he is happy at GWS and is most likely to recommit with them. A big, fat contract offer might change that. I think Josh Kelly might be attainable but would cost us those first rounders. Would you do that? No doubt we've put ourselves in a strong position. I have hopes Gresham will be our next Steven, only with better disposal. Acres could be Fyfe like. Only time will tell, but why not keep adding to, and improving the list with proven talent?
Would seriously consider Martin plus Josh Kelly for our draft picks. Do you think it's possible we might be able to snare Kelly for a first rounder plus a player? It's possible that at year's end we may have a young player who can't get game time at the Saints who might be of interest to GWS. Longer for example.
Spending both our first round draft picks on someone like Kelly, well I'm not so sure about that.
Longer term strategy would be to snare an elite FA and use our first rounders on two young players.
It will depend on who's available and who else is a player in the market at the time.
