He's already signed with a VFL club.

Obviously not confident with the forwards Development in Harvey, Barnes, Ramsey & T.Smith for 2018 ? Just remember it was Smith & Ramsey’s 1st year at the club and Ramsey should have played forward (not on ball) & Barnes & Harvey are young (so more game time) Big guys take more time to mature into powerhouses ! Also Wilkey could be used forward a bit in 2018 can play and hold marks !
Onward and upward with the positives guys !

The quartet you have just mentioned might be big and might still be maturing however there are a no of essential ingredients they need to bring to the table in 2018 .also like your call on Wilkie who can be a genuine swing man

These are to be as fit as they can be
To contest every ball they are involved in
Apply body pressure and or tackle when it presents itself
And most importantly kick goals rather than points

We have recruited Young from Port to provide a genuine small forward option to feed off opportunities the above would present

Three of the the four have attributes that got them onto afl lists so talent shouldn't be a problem
The 4th has so much natural talent and height he should be kicking 3 every week and be providing ruck option up forward which he is also good at

This will leave James Craig and Jordan Sweet as genuine mid Field ruck options off the bench

I think Barnes still has potential, not so sure about Harvey. Of course, delivery to our forwards is also part of the problem.

Harvey as the talent but appears too lazy

The possibility of having all those essential ingredients mentioned would see us win a premiership and those players would be drafted to the AFL. But we can dream this will happen !
I think Barnes has been very disappointing in my eyes for such a tall with “potential “ to dominate most games, but potential is not actual is it ?
I am expecting a big year from the matured “another year” talls !
Young sounds like a speedy small we have yearned for years now !
Can’t see Carr playing two Ruckman in a game, although I think if Barnes doesn’t pull his finger out Sweet is in !!

I would like to see Sam Wadtke given a chance up forward. he takes a strong mark and if they spill in defense they can be costly but up forward with Young crumbing he could be very handy. He is also a very good kick.

This was posted on the SA Footy Forum
Former Central District and Crows SANFL top up player Brock Castree doing a pre-season with North Adelaide.

Brock's Uncle is Rick Magowan who obviously played League footy for both the Dogs and Roosters.

Brock played in the SAAFL in 2017 at PAOC under former Bays player Brett Backwell.

If Brock's knee isn't giving him grief any longer, could be a handy midfielder.

Brock won PAOC's Best and Fairest last year. He played Under 18's for Centrals in 2011 so my guess is that he would turn 25 some time in 2018.

Last year a number of SANFL players (current and former League and Reserves) trained with North for a while and then quit/were pushed before the real season began. Could Brock be in that category?

An interesting point about Brock is that he was initially in North's zone way back when he first decided to go out with Centrals.

It would be nice if the club gave us an update on who is training, who is injured and what possible recruits may be on the radar etc.

We should have talked those guys into staying.
We won the spoon remember!
Hopefully we have learned from all our mistakes in recent years!
Strong 18's with strong reserves makes for a strong league team.
Note Sturt top U18, top reserves and top in the league.
Somehow after top reserves premiership in 2016 we lost the plot in 2017!

Every year we have won a league flag our 2's have been average at best, I'll take that over a reserves or jnr flag any day!!

True. In 1987 our reserves won one game, and got flogged unmercifully every other week, and the league side was arguably the club’s greatest in its history.

To win a flag you don't need a great reserves side but you do need quality reserves. Even in 1987 we had that.
In 1972 our reserves were runner up and we won the league flag with a number of players out injured (Neil Sachse, Terry Collins, Arch Wilkey, Kym Lehmann, Mike Patterson and David Burns all missed the GF through injury) so that year we certainly had plenty of depth. Surely that year we would have won the reserves if we hadn't had so many injuries to league players.
