Get that cheque book out Saultry, some of these players would be handy at Port next year!

Digby would be a monty wouldn't he burra ? Also , Johnno is a very good mate of Tim Hazel........hmmmmm. Mind you , both will command pretty big dollars in VFL terms.

Get BJ and Hazer back to Box Hill!! Wishful thinking much?
bullants
Would like to see Becker stay on, has potential but needs more game-time at senior level. Also needs to be found a position, maybe half-back? Thought Morrell did enough late in the year to stay on Carlton's list and wouldn't be surprised if an AFL club takes him in the pre-season draft.

Morrell would probably still be on the list if either Whitnall or Fevola been traded. However, with the number of young key forwards coming along, Digby paid the price. I don't know if the Bullants can afford him, but they would do very well to pick him up. He dominated just about every game he played this season. Becker would also be a decent aquisition, if a slightly cheaper one.

[quote="onslaught"]Some Carlton (Bullants) delistings: Karl Norman, Brett Johnson, Digby Morrell, also Rookies Becker and Pleming[/quote] Coming from a Carlton supporter's perspective, I thought that they were all very stiff to get the chop. Karl Norman was a decent player but he just didn't get many opportunities and suffered with injury and that Laurence Angwin drug rubbish!! Was a very good player either up forward or down back. Johnno was pretty stiff as well I thought, he does some great things up forward and he's a very creative player - suits a HFF type of role. Diggers was very stiff, I didn't even think he would get chopped. He gives us that extra depth in our big man department - gave us the luxury of playing Lance Whitnall up forward more often. Becker didn't get a game and didn't get one opportunity to prove himself while Pleming could've slotted well into our backline. Hopefully they all get picked up by VFL Clubs. Good luck boys!!! Com'on Bullants, get the cheque book out!!!!

Hooper is a slightly undersized, but quite physical ruckman. He is a guy who gives a good hard contest every time. He isn't that slow for a big man, but in an age of 200+ cm talls he probably isn't quite tall enough. He takes a good, strong grab in forward line and can kick a goal, but he isn't likely to take a lot of pack marks from 3 back: he doesn't have the spring. He is a good competitor and which ever club is lucky enough to get him will be getting a decent player. At the Bullants he was competing against 3 Carlton ruckman each week and Justin Crow (who is taller and able to play in defence). While things have opened up in the Carlton ruck division, he sees this as an area he will that more younger, taller players are going to fit into.
