Think they listed him as a category B rookie Koop
Yup. The reason for this is he can't stay on the park and we are likely to have a spare spot open with Byrne having the ACL. If he is healthy he will likely be elevated to the senior list and is a good chance to start the year off half back.
Carlton sticking with the family affair, SOS drafts his cousin Alex Silvagni. This is what he said about our recruits.
"We lost Michael Jamison and Zach Tuohy out of our defence and in the drafts we've brought in seven 18-year-olds, which includes Kym (LeBois) as one of our rookies, so we felt we needed to bring some maturity through the door, which is where Alex (Silvagni) fits in. He's a great character and a real workhorse and with 27 players with under 50 games' experience on our list we just needed to give those kids some support. We didn't see a lot of Andrew (Gallucci) this year but he came back after the break in fantastic condition, so we just felt we needed to give him an opportunity."
It makes a lot of sense because our key backs are all quite young. Rowe is the only real old head back there and White is that tweener size so it was probably necessary to bring in a big body. Worst case he provides a bit for our VFL side and allows the young guys to develop naturally.
