With the increasing likelihood that Brad Crouch will wear a Geelong jumper next year, promising youngster Quinton Narkle could be squeezed out ,per SEN.

With the 22-year-old out of contract at the end of this season, it has been suggested that he is open to rival offers, preferably from those based in Victoria.

Narkle was reportedly close to leaving the club last year, with his name attracting plenty of interest. However, he remained a Cat after the club’s change of heart.

Currently sidelined with a hamstring injury, Narkle has yet to secure a regular spot at senior level in his time at the Cattery. The West Australian has never played more than six games in a season since being selected in the fourth round (pick 60) of the 2016 draft.
