North Melbourne’s season is all but over, just falling short of finals … again. Coach Brad Scott has eluded to aggressive changes to the list for season 2012. Reverend Shinboner looks at who’s on the way up and who’s on the way out.
Up for promotion
Cameron Pederson – The handy utility has been a more than serviceable contributor to North’s team this season. Has been signed up by the club for another 2 years.
Aaron ‘Fishy’ Mullet – Smooth moving left footer could be the dangerous half-back flanker North is looking for. Showed enough in his last couple of games to earn a permanent promotion.
Luke ‘Car Keys’ Delaney – The burly 22-year old full back showed poise and strength in his eight AFL games. May be North’s only key defender capable of going toe-to-toe with the likes of Jonathan Brown.
Majak Daw – The big African has shown patches of brilliance in the VFL, but it’s his consistency which will have caught North’s attention. Will either be re-rookied or offered a spot on the senior list.
Brady Rawlings – retired.
Daniel Pratt – his best footy is behind him.
Gavin Urquhart – never quite adjusted to the pace of AFL.
Ben Ross – overtaken by Atley, Harper and Speight.
Marcus White – limited player.
Liam Anth0ny – disposal has let him down. And he’s soft.
Ed Lower – overtaken by Ziebell, Bastinac and Adams.
