Completely agree - ideally Lobb plays fwd/ruck. Was just demonstrating the team can still perform with Lobb in that primary ruck role. Darcy would know that and use it as motivation. I think we are perhaps a impatient with Sean, most rucks take ages to get the necessary fitness levels. I'm not sure he can be #1 for a full season just yet regardless.I don't think you can make the leap that Lobb being the number 1 ruck was the catalyst for those wins, he was also part of some bad losses as the number 1 ruck. IMO he just isn't good enough to hold down that spot, wasn't when required at GWS and hasn't been when required by us. He is however probably the best forward/ruck in the game and we should be playing to that strength.
Overall how good is it that we have two young up and coming rucks and a bloke who can play FF/ruck. I am a massive fan of what we have done in that position since losing Sandi (few years now).
