It would be nonsensical to rush him, but considering we are so useless defensively, it would be extremely difficult to say 'no'.

As much as I hate to accept he might need a week or 2 to prepare, I witnessed a very poor defensive structure yesterday. Anderson could have a very dramatic effect on the ball movement through the middle. He stops Brisbane's middle structure if he played yesterday.

Then again, he could be very underdone.

Conflicted because he is the answer to most of our midfield problems, but could make things worse if he isn't 100%. A 100% Anderson can turn things around pretty quickly. Just seeing him not out there hurts our mids.

Fellow runner Jed Anderson returned from a hamstring issue and played three quarters, having 11 disposals and laying eight tackles in a defensive role.
8 tackles first game back. VFL I know but that is an indictment on the senior group. They struggle to get 8 tackles collectively in one quarter.
