Agreed.I don’t disagree. I just wouldn’t run with him as the main ruck at this stage. Like his athleticism and aggression though

TBH I actually wouldn't mind seeing him in a few different roles TBH. 2nd ruck more for sure, but also 3rd tall forward, and I wouldn't be against a sprinkle of contests as a big bodied mid. Maybe even send him to a powerful tall midfielder as a tagger.
Out of interest I just googled Patrick Cripps height/weight (as he is the gold standard for big bodied mids), and those 2 are quite similar.
Patrick Cripps 195cm 93kg (which I suspect is misleadingly light, i'm 189cm and 93kg and there's no way in hell that beast is my weight)
Nick Murray 194cm 98kg
Certainly not saying he is a like for like player as Patty Cripps, but he might have him for speed and explosiveness. And would be line-ball in terms of power and agility. Could be a fun magnet to throw around in the last 2 months. See what the big country lad can do with a license to go and wreck contests (or you know, more contests).
