“It was good for Nick. The last two weeks he’s played as a ruckman, and against Box Hill he was against two big ruckmen for the whole game. They were working him over the whole game, which is exactly what Nick needs. He ran to the right positions, battled hard all day, put in a four-quarter effort and improved from last week.”

Can't say I really want to see him playing as the number 1 in a game yet.

There are plenty of reasons to have very high hopes but he's not ready. Given Phillips seems to have fallen off a cliff I suppose there is no other option.

Bryan with Wright taking more minutes, and Stringer back in, probably doesn't hurt us too badly.
Bryan can go back when not rucking too.

So could start with Bryan & Wright forward.
When Wright rucks it's Jones, Hooker & Stringer forward
When Bryan rucks, swing Hooker back with Jones, Wright and Stringer forward.
