The most likely scenario to fit Brandley in the 10 is to drop O’Shannessy back to a TP. Then they can retain all 4 of Brandley, Manu’a, Poolman and McDonnell. McDonnell is clearly a Fitzgerald project and won’t be going anywhere. I’d be surprised if they don’t have those 4 defenders again.
As for LA I listened to a podcast which was fairly recent. LA spoke about wanting to move into coaching director roles in particular with the AFL. That’s not to say she won’t put her hand up.
I suspect Kate Upton will want the job. Has held head coaching roles in VNL and Victoria. She is very popular among players in VIC.
Vicki Wilson has also spoke of wanting to coach at SSN level.
