It's a mixed bag. You can get a good starting ruck from another club. The star ruckman still seem to be drafted and developed.Its why you don't develop rucks or take them with top 10 picks just poach them from other clubs.
Hickey is playing career best football at age 30 they take so long to develop.
Seems like he was a great guy with every club. Appears to have settled in here really well. There are a few players at a similar life stage and the youngsters seem to really look up to him. I'm guessing of course but I reckon family life is going well too. Sydney fans love his energy and quirkiness. We've always fancied ourselves as a club that can resurrect careers.I always felt like Hickey was massively underrated, was one of my favourite players when he was with us, super thrilled to see him doing well with you guys!
He would IMO be the best ruckman on our list and I don't expect he would command a huge salary.
He has all of Naismith's strengths:
- being tall
plus also has some other skills and actually provides some effort and a marking presence around the ground. He had a very solid year for West Coast last season and would provide us with an alternative to Sinclair
