There's the problem. We're looking at short term solutions. As great as Ablett has been, in 2020 and the modern game, can you afford to have a part time player? Particularly as now he's at the age where any injury could mean he's done. Massive risk to take.i just reckon you have to see what you have got underneath. Ablett did have a good season. Maybe he only plays 16 games plus finals next year? He’s a short term solution though.
Taylors back looks absolutely cooked. He moves like an old nan now. And i know about a knackered back. I don’t know enough about your reserves. Are there players who could develop in those roles right now at your club?
Taylor we've got cover for - Blicavs, Kolodjashnij, and Henry are a pretty solid key defence trio to me, and there's always Henderson as backup while others are groomed. And because Taylor has been kept, I doubt he'll play seconds. Scott's master plan of a side with 22 defenders might happen at some point.
