Footy Classified, Garry Lyon:
"North have built this side really well. They have been able to build this list on the back of some genuine bargains."
The graphic (there's always the graphic):
- Michael Firrito - Rookie Draft
- Scott McMahon - Rookie Draft
- Leigh Adams - Rookie Draft
- Matt Campbell - Rookie Draft
- Nathan Grima - Rookie Draft
- Cruize Garlett - Rookie Draft
- Cam Pedersen - Rookie Draft
- Aaron Mullett - Rookie Draft
- Aaron Edwards - Pick 82 - 2006
- Lindsay Thomas - Pick 53 - 2006
- Brent Harvey - Pick 47 - 1995
- Andrew Swallow - Pick 43 - 2005
Excuse my skepticism. The inclusion of Brent Harvey smacks of padding. "Look! Boomer was drafted at 47 - that will bolster our point." North built its 1990s list with Harvey. North already had Harvey when Dean Laidley re-built the list in the Noughties. Now, under Brad Scott, "this side" and "this list" merely inherited Harvey.
