Why else is he doing what appears to be training with the main group?
Little bugger is still fit as a Mallee bull, was playing a decent standard last two years.
Never had a serious injury apart from the arm - no knees, no old man calves or hammies.
Rhyce tried to keep up with the boys in training and would know just what's required - he would see what Boomer was doing and know exactly if it was at the level required.
Also, Rhyce has none of the personal involvement in sacking Boom Brad had, so there's no "loss of face" to bringing him back.
Halfway through the season, if we're tracking shit, we go yeah nah, was a nice idea Boomer, but we wanna get games into Jack Mahoney.
If we're seriously looking like finals is an option, then draft him mid year and play him for the last five games and the finals.
There's a flag to be pinched this year imo and we should do everything possible to pinch it.
Do I reckon Boomer should come back full time on the list? No.
Do a reckon a one off weirdo season where we could bring him back for 5-9 games could pay MASSIVE DIVIDENDS?
He never stopped training with them
