I know Sier didnt kill it in the VFL today but I wouldn't be surprised if he gets called up to the seniors this week, especially if Beams doesn't make it (and in Adam's ongoing absence). Sier adds a point of difference to how we play, a different dimension to the midfield structure. Bringing him in would change us up in a way that none of the other senior players, languishing in the VFL, can do. Think he plays better at senior level too. Will wait for this week's team selection with interest.
Agree with that, but I suspect he may change us in a way that the Senior coaches aren't particularly keen on - eg. improve clearance at the cost of transition. If I was Sier, I'd be a bit worried that when the coaches realised that Wills wasn't able to do the defensive job on Cripps, they didn't then try him as a ball hunting clearance player, they just ushered him out of the midfield altogether. I think the coaches value transition input over defensive input over clearances.
