Don't forget Phil Smart was Fremantle recruiting manager at the time Johnno, Tendai and others were drafted by Fremantle. Is he still at Swans?

Ha ha he sure is. Slippery as a butcher's dick is Smarty with his army of spotters out there. Highest paid executive in the WAFL ;)

Hopefully the club can help find a package that satisfies him and he feels like a Perth person.


DD,not doubting you or anything but please refresh my memory and tell me an ex Perth player who came to Swans at the end of their AFL career?? Actually played a game that is.

Anyone know where Simon Tunbridge ended up, notice he is still on our list. Be handy addition if injury free

Tunbridge had a knee injury didn't he? I seem to recall a story of him having a knee operation. Maybe he decided to retire?

Mike your club had a red hot crack at Leon Davis and Tendai. Failed at both attempts but no doubt drove up their price including off field requirements.

I am not entirely certain but he may not play footy again which is a tragedy due to his injuries..
The other problem is that there is an issue concerning his injury which was sustained whilst still on the Eagles' list.
I believe that if that injury recurred playing with Perth he would need to indemnify the Eagles for medical costs related to that injury.
Perhaps someone can clarify or explain.

He would be a handy player next year, still has a bit to offer at WAFL level. Hope you guys can convince him to play

At one point both Johnson, McInnes and Tunbridge would all be good. Injuries and bodies permitting of course.

Without knowing him and this is just my opinion on watching him play for Freo over the last 18 months, his body looks knackered.

Tunbridge had an injury payment I think and if he did play football at some level then this would interfere with that some how.

McInnes would be the player I would be targeting the most if he is not offered a new contract at West Coast. Can play forward and second ruck.

He needs to go back to his old club and play in a forward pocket -- he is too slow to play CHB in league football these days.
