2019 Pre-Draft Trade Wrap

Departures
Kane Lambert (trd.), Hugh Greenwood (trd.), Dayne Beams (trd.), Kade Simpson (trd.), David Zaharakis (trd.), Kyle Langford (trd.), Will Hoskin-Elliott (trd.), Andrew Phillips (trd.), Jay Lockhart (trd.), Will Hayward (trd.), Adam Kennedy (trd.), Andrew McPherson (trd.), Ryan Bastinac (del.), Lachie Henderson (del.), Jordan Houlahan (del.), Nathan Hrovat (del.), Harrison Wigg (del.), Archie Smith (del.), Ben Jarvis (del.)

It was a colossal trade period for Houston, unprecedented in its History, with a huge 19 players departing - over a third of the list. We would like to wish these players all the best in their future endeavours, in particular Kane Lambert, Hugh Greenwood, Dayne Beams, Kade Simpson and David Zaharakis who all have been great contributors for Houston during their times here.

Arrivals
Ollie Wines, Jarrod Berry, Tom Phillips, Zak Jones, Darcy MacPherson, Sam Powell-Pepper, Jarrod Harbrow, Daniel McStay, Tom De Koning, Mitch Hinge

Houston welcome the arrival of 10 new players.









Coach SilverLion has given his comments on the new recruits:

O Wines: "Had a poor season by his standards, but too good a player not to bounce back. Has the potential to be a captain option for us."

J Berry: "Has already become a good player in his couple of years in the system, I have no doubt he will continue to improve and be worth the price we paid for him."

T Phillips: "Good mid that along with the aforementioned players, should solidify our mid stocks for a few years to come."

Z Jones: "Should go well at the Saints, has gradually improved over the last couple of years with increased mid time and I think his best is still ahead of him."

D MacPherson: "Had a career best season this year. Even with the Suns' inclusions, I'm backing him to continue to improve. Could be an asset for us as a forward/mid."

S Powell-Pepper "Has the potential to be a really good mid, but his attitude and off-field problems have been an issue at times. Hoping he can get himself right and become the player many feel he can."

J Harbrow: "I won him at an auction."

D McStay: "Good option for forward depth, but not much more."

T De Koning: "Was necessary to get him to compliment our existing ruck stocks. Could become a good player in time."

M Hinge: "Promoted to the Lions' senior list for next year, hoping that he'll continue to grow as a player."

2019 National Draft Selections

Houston would like to welcome the following players:

Pick #12:
Liam Henry

Position: Forward/Midfielder
Height: 180cm
Weight: 86kg
DOB: 28/08/2001



AFL.com.au Journalist Cal Twomey: "Henry is a special talent. His standout game of the year came when the stakes were perhaps highest, in the title-decider of the under-18 championships. The West Australian starred in his side's gripping win over Vic Country that saw them take out the carnival, with Henry best afield. His field kicking, smarts with the ball, class around goal and fine touch were on show, but only for a little longer after that, having injured his knee late in the season."





Pick #18:
Jeremy Sharp

Position: Winger
Height: 189cm
Weight: 81kg
DOB: 13/08/2001



CT: "Sharp is a run and carry midfielder who can break the lines with his endurance base, speed and long kicking. He's a penetrating player who showed his athletic ability at the Combine, when he tested at 2.966 seconds in the 20-metre sprint and 6:12 minutes in the 2km time trial. Sharp is an outside midfielder who will bolt up and down the ground and appears best suited to a wing position."





Pick #19:
Finn Maginness

Position: Midfielder
Height: 189cm
Weight: 82kg
DOB: 23/02/2001



CT: "Maginness has the qualities that will step up at the next level. Can he run? Yep, he finished second in the 2km time trial at the Combine. Is he quick? Yep, he ran 2.96 seconds in the 20-metre sprint. Can he win the ball? Yep, of his average of 21 disposals in the NAB League, half were contested. He's big and strong and tall and has the athletic profile to match. Maginness will head to the Hawks as a father-son pick and couldn't have done much more in a strong campaign."




Pick #23:
Kysaiah Pickett

Position: Forward
Height: 171cm
Weight: 71kg
DOB: 02/06/2001



CT: "The small forward excites in a number of ways: he flies for speccies, he is clever at ground level, he's classy around goal and he likes the physical side of the game. Check out the video below of his bump from last year that went viral last week. The nephew of former North and Power star Byron is short and small but packs in plenty of power."





Pick #37:
Ryan Byrnes

Position: Forward
Height: 181cm
Weight: 80kg
DOB: 03/05/2001



Extract from Draft Profile: "You would be hard-pressed to find many more consistent Under-18 players in 2019 than Sandringham Dragons skipper, Ryan Byrnes. The competitive midfielder held his own in the star-studded Dragons midfield early on, before taking over to become the number one ball winner and earn a sole Vic Metro outing. He averaged 25.4 disposals across 15 NAB League outings after averaging a tick over 20 in his 12 bottom-age games, while also helping school side St Bede’s to its first ever Herald Sun Shield title. Importantly, he was the one to stand up across what was a disappointing finals series for Sandringham, not wavering from his usual output and displaying outstanding on-field leadership to cap off a great year."





Pick #38:
Keidean Coleman

Position: Half-Back/Midfielder
Height: 183cm
Weight: 75kg
DOB: 31/03/2000



Extract from Draft Profile: "One of the unlucky players not to be drafted last season under the Academy system, Coleman came back to be one of Brisbane’s best during the NEAFL and has put his name back up in lights. Possessing some nice speed and skills, Coleman takes the game on and will fit in well with Brisbane’s youthful side and attacking prowess. Having come from the NEAFL premiership-winning Lions side, Coleman will already feel at home, and while he does need to add more size to his frame – he is just the 75kg at present – he will always be a lighter body player because of his speed and athleticism moving around the ground. Last year he missed out on being drafted because he had to involve himself in the game for longer periods of time, which he did so early in the season and showed why he belonged at AFL level."
