Is it wrong to be worried about this appointment purely from the perspective of having a bunch of mates together on the coaching panel?

I don't want comfortable, I want on edge. Great players ≠ great coaches (necessarily).

Really? A bit of hyperbole! They were team mates once, but have lived/played/coached in separate states for over 12 years!

Does anyone know if he'll have to sit in a chair when talking to the mids (I'm assuming a ruck coach will have involvement with midfielders re positioning etc) as he's quite tall, will they be able to hear his instructions clearly if he is standing up?

... i wonder if the new ruck rules have had a hand is this?
Given me moved Lade and Greaves on before the new ruck rules were even announced I would say no.

If the abolition of the Primus rule was the reason for bringing in a new ruck coach maybe we should have brought in Primus. o_O
