That's the only reasoning behind it that can be thought of..Taberner can't ruck, it would be madness to play him as our #1 ruck. That said there is definitely something going on with his non-selection that isn't related to on-field performance. That much was obvious when we still refused to select him when He'd kicked 11 goals in 2 weeks and Cox was dropped for disciplinary reasons. We chose to go into that game short a key forward and with no relief ruck option rather than pick the best performing player in the seconds.
I've been working on the assumption for the last month that he's leaving at the end of the year, he already has an offer on the table from another club, the club knows about it, and as a result they don't see the point of giving him games in what is essentially a development year.
Either that or he's done something really bad that the club doesn't want to make public.
He did say he loves the footy club and wants to stay with the young group. Then maybe a Victorian club offered him a lifeline? Even this week is a good opportunity to perhaps play Griffin as well as Tabs as back up. Griffin by himself isn't a good look.
Feel like Tabs is going to go elsewhere and really hit his peak. We don't have much in terms of KPF so better hope Cox is the answer and Apeness can somehow stay fit.
Seems to be the same scenario as De Boer and Mzungu, play them for Peel and get them playing finals. Remember seeing De boer and knew he was leaving/delisted.
