Agree, Laverde was a steal and Langford is going to turn out alright. The risk was well worth it in the end there!
I wouldn't mind if Francis comes to us
. I've liked what I've seen from him, good swingman for both ends but plays his best off Half Back. Would be a really good guy to have for the future if Parish doesn't last, but don't think either are bad given the choice. Also like the look of Curnow, even before he boosted up phantom drafts past few months. He's not exactly a tall forward but he plays like one so reminds of Crameri like that from a few years ago for us.
There is some quality in the top end, and I'm sure if we can follow on from last year we'll do just fine!
