OK, so dropped this week and it may be a battle for him to get back in the side with Nank potentially returning for the finals too, but he's lit it up this year. If we do go all the way it will be in no small part to a number of lesser lights like Chol who have stood up when the injuries were mounting. Hopefully he/they get rewarded with at least a VFL flag.
He's played pretty low game time as the second ruck at AFL level, hopefully its been pitched to him as a way to go back to the VFL, get a full game in as #1 ruck for a week or two and load back up to push for a spot in finals. Would like to think we have a new contract in front of him for a couple of years too.
Richmond have invested a lot into both boys and i think the next 2 years will be when we see what they have to offer and great backup for Nank as well as 1 eye on the future with potentially big upside to both players.
Chol from where he is coming from has done well and was always expected to be a 4-5 year project and is still very young for a rukman
I think the next 2 years will be where he really takes the next step and shows what he can do , He has every tool required to make it as a Fwd/Ruck and will be a handfull for defenders to matchup on when he takes the next step.
Very good signing and combined with Soldo/Nank/CCJ our ruck dept is sorted imo
