With the Key defending stakes at an all time low, Brisbane cannot afford to loose Daniel Merrett for an extended stint. Adam would fill the gaping hole in CHB for Brisbane, but also ensure a quality succession for ol’ ROG. Great strength and size. A really tough choice between him and Talia – but his skills give him the edge.

TAC Cup premiership player 

Sumner was a late addition to the AIS/AFL Academy this year, and it certainly enhanced his football this season. Part of the premiership Dragons side, he is equally comfortable in the midfield or up forward, as he showed in round 3 with his six goals against Gippsland Power.
