AFL Draft 2023: West Coast Eagles feel the need for Reids as midfield and forward depth gets boost

Two Reids are better than one.

That’s the opinion of West Coast list boss Rohan O’Brien, who didn’t hesitate in snapping up one of the best key forwards in the draft in Archer Reid with the first pick on the second day.

The tall forward-ruck joined Vic Country teammate and No.1 pick Harley Reid in blue and gold after being selected with pick No.30.

O’Brien revealed rival clubs came with offers for the first pick on Tuesday night, but the Eagles were reluctant to part with the selection with the 203cm Gippsland Power forward still on the table.

“The players we picked tonight, we were pleasantly surprised that they were still available. Archer, in particular, we felt was one of the better talls in the draft and could’ve been picked last night,” O’Brien said.
