Kid has talent, if he is struggling forward id like us to play him down back just to get his hands on the ball and get his confidence up.

Would be good but at the expense of who?

There are plenty of players who need that game time in defence.

Reckon Houlahan's only path forward is to get superfit so that he can impact a game up the ground.

Houlahan will be expendable at year's end I reckon. Too many in front of him who are also better than him, unless one of those is traded for something better. I would think Laverde, Langford, McKernan and Stewart all have too much of a head start... not sure why we drafted him at all tbh. Should have opted for a big bodied mid... or a hbf.

I think he's got more attributes to succeed as a defender then Long who has reportedly been training there this off season
