The clue with Lobb is his statement. "I want to go back to WA at some point, whether it's this year or next". We preferred a trade and actually did a good one. We apparently tried to get Zac Clarke. Dawson will be fine against the less mobile rucks. Against someone like Grundy we may put Mummy or Dawson against him at the taps and use Tomlinson around the ground. Not ideal but an option.
The spotlights on Matt Flynn this year as a ruck/forward. He's looked good in the NEAFL, but had some horror moments in JLT1. Whether that's just nerves because he knows his time is now after 3 years developing I'm not sure.
