Not overly fussed about Suban....can't afford them all.....great to hear Jacob Green back down at the club, kicked a few goals in 2016 from memory...5 in a derby once....reckon one more signing perhaps.....a good mixture of signings so far......hopefully if all are fit and firing EF can be more competitive in 2018 in terms of finals aspirations.

Did Green step away for a year and play Ammos? Be great for competition at the club for spots in the senior side.

Think Green went to play in the country mate.....bit of competition for that small goal kicking forward now.....Ryan, Green, Hampson, Wynne and Blurton

True, though Hampson is a bit more than a goal kicking forward. All class, just have to keep him fit and on the park.

Obviously been a very productive off season recruiting wise.....full marks to the club for being proactive. Though am giggling at some of the comments regarding EF being definite top 3 candidates or brown paper bag wholesalers.....a lot of these recruits are guys who crashed and burned at the elite level early on, untried at any senior level of footy, returning from injury and suburban footy.....Jansen and Loersch spent more time playing in the NEAFL without killing it, which we all know is a lower standard comp than the WAFL, Snadden really hasn't done much at EP during his WCE rookie stint, Kommer has had injury problems and being playing suburban footy in Melbourne of late, Griff is getting on and Boekhurst has been injured and iffy during his time at Carlton/Northern Blues. Whilst pleased to have them then not have them, just think time will show how good a recruit any of these boys will be.

If any of them can do a Jonno Marsh or Corey Gault for EF in 2018, than majority of EF fans will be pleased as punch.....jury still out on all them bar Griff and Boekhurst to a degree......would love for good youngsters in Bennett, Burton, Harding, Bailey and Holmes to continue to develop and given opportunities from Wiley.....plus the likes of Howson, Mirco et al to keep improving......some good colts boys in Scott, O'Reilly, Quill, Jackson et al also coming through.....great to have some depth and options, going to be a lot of healthy competition for places, just want Wiley to reward spots on merit and not on salary or CV.

Considering how EF were travelling during 2017, that last month of the season, along side the colts success and now some proactive recruiting, it's great to see some light and hope.....though come end of the day it all means nothing if the onfield performances are poor. Heard a couple more signings are possible, more mid tier sort, but who knows another quality big signing won't be frowned upon by us success starved Sharks fans.

Great to see the club also being proactive off the footy field as well, with gaining new sponsers and strategies to get more money into the club to help fund this recruiting drive......
