Should Geelong make shock play for retired forward?


SEN broadcaster Anthony Hudson believes Geelong should make a shock play for retired forward Jarrad Waite.

Waite called time on his AFL career at the end of the 2018 season after playing 244 games for Carlton and North Melbourne, booting 377 goals.

The 35-year-old kicked 32 goals in 13 games during his final year at the top level for the Kangaroos.

“I would ring Jarrad Waite if I was Geelong,” Hudson told SEN Breakfast.

“If I was another club who needs another forward, I would put that call into Jarrad Waite and say: ‘any chance you want to play on for another year?’

“His body is fine, his footy was as good as ever, I know he said he was mentally shot, but create another challenge for him.”

Former North Melbourne midfielder Nick Dal Santo says Waite could provide the Cats with another option to support key forward Tom Hawkins.

“I think Jarrad Waite could help a team,” Dal Santo said.

“I look at Geelong, if Tom Hawkins goes down, they don’t have many options going forward.”

Waite has agreed to play for VAFA side St Kevins in 2019.
