Go west, boy.
The future of Harley Reid, the primary pick-choose, has actually been disputed because his stature in this draft ended up being clear concerning 18 months earlier. Tonight, that future is worked out.
And regardless of every one of the rumours, the talkback calls, the profession pitches both actual and pictured, the expected “flight risk” concerns, the “surely they need a glut of picks, not just one” calls, it looks practically specific that the West Coast Eagles will certainly draft Harley Reid with the primary pick tonight.
We went over the issue in detail throughout the profession week blog sites, where I made my ideas quite clear — the Eagles must not trade the civil liberties to Reid for anything much less than 2 choices inside the leading 5 this year.
That deal never ever came, and (unless something mindblowing occurs in the following number of hours) the Eagles will certainly hold their nerve.
Reid is precisely the kind of gamer and character West Coast are craving, and will certainly back themselves in to make their club Harley’s home for a years or even more. His job will certainly be interesting to watch.
