FOUR QUEENSLANDERS EARN ANOTHER CHANCE
Monday, 3 November, 2008
Young Queenslanders Ben Warren, Paul O’Shea, Jake Spencer and Rhys Magin have survived the end-of-season list reassessment and will around in the AFL again next year.
Warren and O’Shea, two years at North Melbourne and the Western Bulldogs respectively after being drafted as 17-year-olds in 2006, have each signed new one-year contract extensions.
Spencer and Magin, coming off their first seasons on the rookie list at Melbourne and Essendon respectively, have been retained as rookies.
This comes on top of the Bulldogs’ retention of James Mulligan for a further 12 months in July.
Magin, whose father Billy was inducted into the Queensland Hall of Fame last Thursday night, is the only one of this group to have played AFL football. He played the last four games of the season for the Bombers.
The only Queenslanders definitely set to exit the AFL are retiring Essendon fullback Mal Michael, Brisbane’s dual premiership team member Robert Copeland and clubmate Wayde Mills, who were de-listed, plus two-year Port Adelaide rookie Gavin Grose, two-year Fremantle rookie Chris Smith and two-year Brisbane rookie Haydn Kiel.
Brisbane have resigned 2008 rookie Pat Garner but are yet to commit to any of their other out-of-contract rookies Joel Tippett and Daniel Dzufer. They are doing summer training with the club at present.
