I.. um. I don't know whether to be happy that he showed he's capable of playing, or sad that he most likely will again, and then won't.

Did what he need to do. Got 25-30 hit outs for us, at least gave us a presence of sorts even if generally a crappie one.

On a hiding to nothing given he was against Alir Alir and it wasn't a conventional ruck contest. Kept how head in the game and was somewhere between just ok and poor for mine.

Poor game. Those saying Smack ruck next week, need I remind you of this:


T Goldstein: 27 disposals, 8 marks, 4 tackles, 56 hit outs
S McKernan: 15 touches, 2 marks, 1 tackle, 16 hit outs

Nightmare scenario
Thanks for the reminder...at least there is some contribution there. ;)

I think he will do better against Goldstein as whilst Goldstein is good around the ground for a ruck he's nowhere near as agile as Aliir Aliir and doesn't normally rack up clearances or anything like that. McKernan got absolutely obliterated last time we played him in the ruck vs Goldstein. If we wanted to try McKernan in the ruck as our first ruck, then Sydney was the team to do it against.

One thing that I was happy with was how he used the ball the few times he got it (ie he didn't turn it over). Nice safe disposals is what we want from him.

Yep. Was horrible but Goldy will destroy Smack and that robs our forward line.

Reckon he plays again which makes me sad.
