    Can't believe he won the Crichton.












    Should have gone to Jeremy Howe.

    “I have a vision that Joe doesn’t ruck at all,” he told The Crichton Panel.

    Good to hear as I never been a fan of Joe in the ruck as it adds to the risk of him getting hurt & while it's just a gut feel without any stats, the side often seemed to struggle (further) clearance wise when he was in there.

    I like it in theory - but our ruck worked pretty well with him there this year. I often felt it helped him get into the game when the ball wasn't coming his way. He also kicked plenty of goals from the ruck as well.

    The question for mine is: Who replaces him in the ruck and how will it affect their existing role?

    One thing I am 100% deadset against is playing both Bellchambers and Leuenberger.
    I'd be OK with Hooker or Stewart playing as relief ruck. Stewart would be the preferred option but the problem is he's not any good in the ruck.

    The ideal solution would be to have a ruck who is an athletic beast (Kreuzer type) who can pretty much go all game as long as they don't need to take any forward line ruck contests. Unfortunately Bellchamber's endurance is on the lower end (Joe played more ruck it seemed when he was in the team) and Leuenberger whilst better is still not at that level either.

    Is it too early to say he's a top 20 player?

    Reckon JD doesn't win the B and F without stints in the ruck - It's working beautifully - So why change ? Finally, his tapwork is improving and we lose little when he is in the ruck.
