Where and when: Mineral Resources Park, Thursday 27 February, 7.40pm AEDT
Tim KELLY (WCE) MID @ $561,800
Will slot right into the Eagles’ midfield with ruck service from Nic Nat, defensive cover from Yeo and Hutchings and direction from Shuey. A must watch having increased his SC output by +10.3 in his second year – only up from there!
Jarrod BRANDER (WCE) DEF/FWD @ $133,000
Slated to play as a wingman after an impressive pre-season. Bulked up and standing 196cm, he could be in line for some early games given the Eagles’ preference for talls.
Jacob TOWNSEND (ESS) FWD @ $222,900
Could be an interesting pick to avoid fielding a low-scoring FWD rookie. Track his output.
Andrew MCGRATH (ESS) MID @ $399,400
Perhaps the biggest breakout tease in recent years. Has always been held back by inconsistency with regard to role and low TOG. Showed signs in the back-end of 2019, take a flyer.
Devon SMITH (ESS) FWD/MID @ $335,800
A very popular F3 pick over the pre-season. Selection comes down to whether he’s back in the guts as the league’s #1 tackler or floating around HF like he did prior to his injury.
Notable Absentees: Joe DANIHER (ESS), Adam SAAD (ESS), Jack DARLING (WCE).
