Yeah, let's not go down the Nic Nat road.

He's not that sort of power athlete. There are about 3 players on the league with that power.

Also, not sure why we'd want him to be an undersized ruck.
There’s a new rule. If you have the same name you need to play the same position

Ever since Tom Lynch

I don’t write off the idea he can play as a freakishly tall wingman at all. In fact I hope we hav ether guys to buck conventional thinking and I’ve a look at it.

His running stats say he can and his kicking is certainly good enough. Let’s see whether test results translate to in-game quickness and how he goes when the ball is beneath his knees. The latter in particular probably makes or breaks the whole idea.

Cannot wait to see this guy play.
