The length of the deal is a little concerning to me...im gathering hed be rather cheap
Nank was always going to be heading south. Nothing ironic about it.List management is complex,but when Nankervis left Sydney for opportunities elsewhere he was behind Tippett,Naismith and Sinclair.Toby ,with the benefit of hindsight has proven to be durable and consistent at the tiges and is one player we underestimated who we would value greatly as a Ruck/Fwd.Signing Naismith to a 3 year extension was a big list management call considering his injuries.The irony is exacerbated further because Richmond were interested in Naismith before they settled with Nankervis.
Yep it's really just luck. Obviously of the lot Nankervis would be the best, but it's just tough luck that the best and most durable one of the bunch is the one who wanted to go home. I still don't get the crisis mode tbh. We haven't had a really good tap ruck since Darren Jolly, who played his last game for us a decade ago. In that time we've had the raw Mike Pyke, two toilers with average tap abilities in Mumford and Sinclair, a bloke who can't seem so stay on the park in Naismith, a ruck who was better as a forward in Tippett, and a bloke who few of us rated in Derickx. It didn't hold us back in 2012 or 2014 or 2016, shouldn't hold us back now. We need to just hope our mids read the taps and work better than their opposition in tight, and also hope that Sinclair can remain injury-free.Nank was always going to be heading south. Nothing ironic about it.
It really doesn’t.Fail to see where it says he’s ******!
