So if his leadership is so great why has he not been reinstated into leadership group?I still maintain Hannebery has been a net benefit to St Kilda despite his injury issues. He will leave the club better than it was before he arrived and he deserves some credit for its transformation. His leadership around the club was essential when he arrived, we had none.
Jones is the only one we really gave up draft picks for.how many of the underlined were over 27 when we got them?
I will grant you Ryder as a short term success but if you bracket him with Crouch, Hannabery and Jones I think the potential ROI won't be great!
Their defensive structures will be a bit of a mess, their top four kick out players last season won't be playing (Shaw, Corr, Williams, Whitfield) likely leaving it to 3 small young running defenders (Cumming, Ash, Wehr), whilst uncapped ruckman will likely hold the fort against Ryder given the Preuss injury, and small pressure forwards are going to struggle (Daniels, maybe Hill).GWS has injuries like Crazy. See afl.com.au for details
It's a big loss , but we have cover because Carlisle and Highmore - if anyone else is needed it opens the door for Joyce and Cavarino.Ouch.
He might just retire again?
Oh well, onto plan b.
Maybe we can pickup the best state league FB in the midseason draft?
