    I’m sure he’ll be playing some VFL next year. But good to know we have someone who can compete should Gawn go down.

    Hindsight is a wonderful thing but maybe Dodo should have checked with Leuenberger what is his plans for 2019.

    Ess could made a play for Preuss.

    And he's gone to a clearly better ruckman, I get it, not sure if you do though

    Draper or Preuss is much of a muchness. Doubt the club was blindsided either there's been talk of Luey retiring this year for a while now.

    We are both in trouble if our number 1 ruck goes down. Both our kids aren’t ready and Daw and McKernan aren’t full time rucks. Goldy has shown he is durable at least.

    Not sure our young ruckman are equal in terms of competing at AFL level (not commenting on talent). Draper will be coming into his 3rd year is over 100kg and has been Essendon VFLs lead ruckman for the majority of last season .

    Why?
    Leuenberger was the back up ruck to Bellchambers. Tom isn’t going anywhere.

    Bellchambers is injury prone and 30 next year. Who plays if he goes down?

    So you are paying roughly half a million for a guy that is injury cover? No thanks.

    Expect Pruess to play at least 8 to 10 games next year, Maxy needs some chop out.

    This. Preuss makes no sense for Essendon especially when the club has big wraps on a young ruckman already on our list.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Essendon don't even select another genuine ruckman in the draft period. More likely a mature 198cm plus type who can pinch hit if we get desperate .

    It has been posted already. I predict we try 2 rucks early in 2019, realise after a while it's not working and then Preuss plays VFL.

    I think he’ll be one of the first players traded off in the mid season trade period. Probably for a first rounder too.

    We aren't going to trade him, we have no back-up if Gawn goes down.

    Why would we trade him?

    Same reason we did.. His value is worth more than playing in the twos.

    Paul Roos masterstroke.

    Pick 2 (Josh Kelly) for Tyson and Salem.

    I think Dees did well to get Preuss for Tyson though. Dom is average. Reeks of a North trade coup. As does Hall

    I reckon Tyson is much better than Preuss. Don’t rate Preuss.

    North won that trade imo

    Tyson is average. Will accumulate possession at North though.

    Preuss has talent. Didnt put it together like I thought over the last 18 months.

    Tyson would have been at Casey all year so free shot for the Dees.

    Salem has been fantastic this year but yes in hindsight I wish we never traded the pick.
