I'm 50/50 on it to be honest. Probably less so with West Coast (I think Hickey was a late inclusion, and in any case, is a much different proposition than Lycett) but definitely for Round 1 against Port, he should have been there for the purpose it looked like he was recruited for, in giving Gawn some support.I just find it so strange we recruited Preuss after Gawn got flogged by two rucks then don't play Preuss against teams like WCE. Sure Gawn is arguably matching his 2018 season but I wouldn't mind him getting some protection. At this stage I'd even consider dropping TMac and going smaller but that won't happen.
But on the other hand, just because we got him in for that purpose, does that mean we automatically pick him, even if he's not ticking all the boxes to be selected? Being his tank or anything else?
That said, the season has been sufficiently torched, so why not give him 4-5 weeks and see how it looks?
Agree re: TMac, but it's probably at the point where you just leave him, because it's gotta come good at some stage!
