I don't think they need another small forward.
Need to fix up the way they send the ball into the F50 first,
work on that.
We could have Peter Daicos in there and he would only get 3 touches per game.
Sheesh



+1
this draft needs to be about quality mids. We have an excess of mid range small forwards so one or two could either go or be used as steak knives in a trade.
I dont think Lonie is too bad, but we have replacements

unfortunately, we lacked courage not taking caleb daniels. now we're left with fingers crossed lonie works out. I'm torn. He is young. He does tear it up in the twos - and not just in a clint jones sort of way. With another preseason clear in his own mind what his deficiencies are... I think it could come down to how much work he's willing to put in. Comes across a bit arrogant to me - which might work for him later, but needs to earn it first.

The true love of our players by our best supporters is there for all to see on this thread.

Just hate to think what some of you would say if you didn't like a player or you barracked for an opposition club!

We would barely have a team left if some Saints fans had their way. Its all well and good to get rid of every underperforming, disappointing or injured player but they still need to be replaced and with better players to make it worthwhile.

Just saying...

I think he will turn out to be a good player.

Whether that's at our club or another club remains to be seen...

The club obviously believes he's still worth a place on the list, but he's certainly on his last chance, or "probation", if he takes the one year deal. The kid has ability, but like many others on the list, he fell away badly in the last third of the year. He needs to get stronger and improve his running, but he's still very young. A one year contract seems a sensible compromise. You perform, you stay. You stink it up and you're delisted at the end of the contract. Nothing like playing for your career to get you motivated.

My thoughts exactly.

Means we can also trade him if anyone is interested.

Good move Saints.

From memory the dogs took Daniel with the pick before ours.

He probably could have/should have gone earlier. His junior stuff was very strong.

Dunno, I'm more concerned about CityWest and his mental health.

Any updates?

We took Lonie at 41, they took Daniel at 46.

I wouldn't get too excited. He was offered a year so he is very much on notice.

Maybe this thread could be locked as all it does is incite trolls and polarises people.
Con Gorozides isn't a troll, he has opinions like we all do.
If you disagree with him and attack personally
rather than use logic and facts,
you're either lazy or your comment can be viewed as trolling.

Lonie might still be traded. Contracts mean nothing anymore. If the right deal comes along, they'll take it. I hope the kid makes it, for us or anywhere else.
