The old saying jack of all trades master of none . Unfortunately Hannan has not performed any well early in the season. Although he did when it counted in some of the 2021 finals Needs to rediscover that form in the 2s IMOMaybe that’s what we want out of him but just seems crazy we’d waste a spot on that - we’d get way more in the air out of another tall, way more in the ruck out of a 2nd ruck and way more on the ground out of another small. Currently we’re getting next to zero in all 3 categories so what’s the point? Yeah he’s versatile, versatile in the amount of roles he can underperform in
Play Cody in that role if that’s what we want, he’s wayyyyy stronger in the air and at ground level. Replace Hannan with a genuine small like McNeil and JJ when he returns, play a tall utility like Schache who can play anywhere and ruck, or replace Cordy with O’Brien who can play defence and ruck as we were previously doing, to chop Tim out his 10 ruck contests a game - Naughty should take ruck contests inside 50 he could turn this into a strength for us - similar to how it’s a strength for the cats and crows with Hawkins/Walker.
*not my first choice but chances of my first choice happening are slim.
