Just because Sinlair says he’ll be ok, doesn’t mean he will be. That was a pretty significant response to hitting his head that was obviously captured on screen. The medical staff and AFL will be all over this. The most important thing is that he’s feeling good and if he misses, he misses...not a bad thing as his health is damn more important than losing the ruck contest this week!Sounds like Sinclair will play, but out of interest, do you think Knoll is any more advanced in ability than Pyke was when he debuted in 2009?
Really good question. Pyke was quicker, though Knoll apparently has a reasonable history as an endurance athlete for a big bloke. In terms of hand eye and kicking, Knoll should be ahead.Sounds like Sinclair will play, but out of interest, do you think Knoll is any more advanced in ability than Pyke was when he debuted in 2009?
Aliirs mobility was an asset, however he was well beaten in the hitouts. It’s a tough selection to make as you want the ruck to be competitive.What an interesting conundrum the selectors face this week.
Personally I thought Aliir looked great in the ruck and if the docs think Sinkers is only going to miss a week I'd expect that they'd keep him there, particularly with Bellchambers being out. But if, as I expect it will be, Sinkers looks like missing 3+ weeks, then I don't think we have any choice but to throw Knoll in the deep end and the best time to do that is against a second rate ruck like Zac Clarke.
And even when Sinkers is not winning taps , he completes and helps nullify the effectiveness of the other bloke. AA can't do that as well. Expect Knoll will be asked to throw his weight around and compete. If does this then he has done a fair jobTrue, but Sinkers isn't our intercepting/3rd man up in defence either.
