    Whatever draft plans I had have gone out the window.

    Pick #61, can't go past Naish Jnr to be honest. Hopefully the investment pays off (plus I loved watching his dad play for the Tigers)
    Pick #62 was going to be about 4 different players, but I'm now sold on the big West Indian fast bowler from Port - Joel Garner.

    Picks 51 and 62 will certainly form a fearsome opening bowling line up at Alberton.

    So I had this pick down to a two horse race based on need.
    A recent epiphany has me realising that I’m a pretty poor judge of my teams needs.
    So just gonna pick on want.
    I want another uber talented Port project midfielder to tread water on my list.

    Welcome to the Goon:

    #66 - Jake Patmore, mid, Port

    Opposite to my learned colleague above in that I am compelled to actually make the "safe" or "slightly more boring" pick this time around as it is the only spot on the field I have no depth.

    Welcome Wylie Buzza, R/F and semi ruck handcuff for Zac Smith.

    Hopes for one further pick, we will see.

    Two young Indigenous boys!
    Both put an early end to their AFL careers to spend more time with their families but have both now come out of retirement to have another crack.

    #84. Jarrod Garlett, m/f, Carlton
    #88. Dom Barry, m, Port Adelaide

    Mate pretty sure I've made a rather major cockup, you should have had pick 67 to take, for some reason that line ihas been removed from the lists

    Yeah, I should have pick 85...

    Luckily for Ant (and everyone else) Dom Barry is not the new Mark Seaby.

    Anyway, my pick is

    85. Cam Ellis-Yolmen

    The more important issue is why the controversy always seems to involve me...haha
