And a team like Carlton could come knocking if Pittonet doesn't work out, or Geelong, hell even the Dogs i English goes home.He's the one to have a look at at both ends because of this speed and agility.
I'm actually really liking the look of these 3 young ruckmen. It could be a real strong point for the list
Think it’s a good time to work on some poxy under the table arrangement with the stand alone clubs to rent one out to them like the Saints did with Frankston last year.All rucks fit means a scramble for ruck minutes in the VFL or one could even play suburban footy. If all the three young rucks progress then one will be grabbed by another club.
I think Raz played for Norwood, probably before Crauford's time.THE mature-aged ruck from Norwood is a player who has the physicality – but not quite the athleticism and endurance – to come straight into an AFL system, with his contested marking ability, strength and work around the ground among his best traits. He manages to find plenty of the ball despite not having a high endurance base, following up well for his size to average 4.9 clearances and 3.6 tackles among 15.9 disposals this season. It is no surprise though that a player of his size lacks athleticism across the board, with his effort making up for that gap. The 22-year-old continued his development in the SANFL Reserves this year across 19 games, taking out the Redlegs’ best and fairest at said level for his consistent season. His 18 disposals, seven clearances, six tackles and 47 hitouts against South Adelaide was the peak, and an insight into his potential to dominate. Overall, a mature-age ruck option for clubs with a few years under his belt and the confidence to impact games beyond the ruck battle.
STRENGTHS: Contested marking, strength, accumulation, ruck work
IMPROVEMENTS: Athleticism, endurance
