McKay reaffirmed that the Blues were keen to hold on to pick one as well as adding in some experienced footballers through Free Agency.

“We are really keen to go to the draft and get a good young player, we are in the window now where we are looking at Free Agency and getting some more mature trades in.”

The outgoing footy boss said there were holes that the Blues desperately needed to fill and they will head to the open market to try and add more experience to their side.

“We are a bit light on between that 24-27 age bracket so we need to strengthen that up a bit.”
