Imagine recruiting someone with the profile of Higgo and not playing him for the exact purpose he was recruited for. His delivery stood out from the other hack it in the general direction Geelong mids. Chris Scott should give himself an uppercut.

The problem for Geelong is, nearly everyone in the 18 is a FA recruited for the moment and purpose. All there on the same promise.

Higgo suffered the old last in - first out rule.

If he doesnt play next week Id almost get in touch with his management about a potential spot on the rookie list with the idea he helps Patch out with the VFL team in a playing coaching role.
I reckon we take him back, they can give us Higgo and a 2nd/3rd round pick and we take his contract.
Player coach in the VFL with the young guys
Mentioned this a couple of weeks ago.
The way Higgins prepared for and kept himself fit was first class.
Geelong ain’t winning sh*t next year.
Bring him back and get him to help Patch in a mixed onfield/off field role.

I know part of the reason he left was to chase a flag but a large part of him moving was for family reasons. I don't think that will have changed soI doubt heis coming back.
