Get behind him, get around him, get on him or get in him. He’s the best option we have available for the role. Whatever your opinion of the guy, let’s hope he exceeds all expectations and tears it up.
More scrutiny needs to be placed on why Clarke is our only option. The list management decision to not take a Ruck/Forward type in the mid season draft is becoming increasingly damning.

We wanted Knoll and Swans snatched him. They don’t even think he’s good enough to play tomorrow even though they have no rucks. So the ones left after Knoll couldn’t have been much better.

Seriously if he can’t impart some sort of advantage for us against whatever contingency plan Syd decide to go with, he simply can’t be considered against Goldstein.

Will not get a more favourable scenario than tomm.

Other than his abysmal kicking at goal I don't get all the negative comments about Clarke. I just want him to compete well in the ruck and not let the opposing ruck dominate leading to a significant centre clearance situation and then to work defensively around the ground. If he can just manage those basics that'll do for what we need from him.
