WOW! sometimes you make a lot of sense. Who would have thunk it.I suppose someone could take that view, but I personally don't give it much traction.
Todd will get a decent contract because he's earned it and is still a top level AFL ruckman, but I don't see him holding the club to any ridiculous ransom.
Tom has also earned an extension, because Majak is still a big question mark, and is really only a relief pinch hitter anyway, and Xerri is shaping more as a KPF/ruck type, so it makes sense to me to keep Tom on the books, and draft a young project at the same time. This doesn't put us in a position where we are top heavy with rucks, as Daw & Xerri play other roles.
2 x mature rucks (Goldy, Campbell)
1 x developing ruck (Draft/trade)
3 x KPP/ruck pinch hitters (Daw/Xerri/Larkey)
This is a nice balance.
