I don’t see Nankervis/Soldo playing in the same team like Gawn/Pruess. Both the Melb rucks can go forward, clunk a mark and kick a goal.Well if you call Soldo a spud considering he handed Preuss his ass on a platter in the vfl then yes
Soldo can’t do that. He’s more of a lumbering tap ruckman.
I’d prefer to see Coleman-Jones or Balta in the side as forwards who can provide a chop out in the ruck. Coleman-Jones is a better ruck and forward but Baltas more agile at this stage.
We may see this scenario as early as round one with Lynch battling time and us wanting to play two talls up forward.
That said, Hardwick could surprise and just get Callum Moore and Dave Astbury in the stoppages at either part of the ground when Nank is off the field.
Not even the Intra club last weekend gave us an idea of which direction they were leaning.
