I've been critical and I still think Ridley should have been in that spot but he played a good game and I'm happy for him to actually show a bit at AFL level and know that we have some more competent depth. Anyway I think either one of them would have been dropped given we have Fantasia, Shiel, Stringer and possibly Gleeson to return to the team after the bye.

I like Benny McNeice, was an advocate of making him an AFL player but for us to progress as an AFL side it’s our bottom 4/6 we need to improve on Ben is unfortunately apart of this.

Is easy to see why they like him, he has great skills, an ok size and a mature body. Obviously the improvement has never came so what we see is what we get.

Have to say I prefer Matt Dea over Ben McNiece. I may even still prefer Mark Baguley over McNiece.
Certainly the best of Baguley a few years back was much better than McNiece.

Ben would certainly carve up at lower levels and is generally a very good ball user. But not imposing enough for the main game I don't think.
