Roos needs know-Howe


MELBOURNE coach Paul Roos has promised the Demons will be active during this year’s trade period, but admits he remains uncertain whether the high-flying Jeremy Howe will be at the club next season.

The Demons yesterday ended a frustratin­g season with a 26-point win over the Giants at Etihad Stadium, ending a 22-game and eightyear losing streak at the venue.

Roos said the Demons would now have “serious discussion­s” about what their list will look like next season.

“We have got to make a decision on two years of data that we have got as a coaching group and as a football department and we have got to work out why we have had such down periods,’’ Roos said.

“Where our list is at, how demanding the competitio­n is and how free agency is changing the face of footy, you have to be active ... we have got to find ways to get players.”
