Any insight from Melb guys as to whether it looks like Preuss is shaping up to play as second ruck with Gawn?

Still can’t fathom why he’d move from being Goldy’s understudy to Gawn’s unless there was some promise of game time, especially with teams like WC sniffing around for a first ruck.

Not sure I could justify spending 700k on Gawn if Preuss plays, could well make little difference but it’s a gamble when you’re spending so much to pick him. Gawn > Kreuzer allows you to go Rookie > B.Crouch or a rookie to a premo on a different line.

Could be a real season defining decision first up.

Kreuz & Crouch are stepping stones anyway

That is true. Another way of looking at could be Gawn and Libba vs Krooz and Oliver/Kelly
Absolutely.

The risk of injury is to great for mine. Your stuck with him unless you downgrade to upgrade R2

Brayden Preuss .....will he get many games at Melbourne ?

But rather than just looking his height and potential, when you take a look at his actual AFL experience the numbers are less flattering. He averages fewer than 9 disposals, has a goalkicking accuracy of 41%, gives away free kicks at a ratio of 4 to 1 received, has disposal efficiency of 57% and North lost 7 out the 8 games he played.
