Lloyd (1 year) and Flynn (2 year) both re-sign.

Actually a bit surprised about Flynn. Given the sheer number of times we've passed over him for senior selection in favour of Simpson (who we know what he offers and it's limited), I thought he was going to be a strong delisting candidate. Definitely not a two year extension.

Doubt it.

a) who would want an uncapped player that's sat in the reserves for years?
b) if we're already planning to offload a player, why would we re-sign him knowing we'd be stuck with him if no one wanted him?

Occam's Razor suggests that the club sees him as a senior prospect in the next couple of years, despite their continued obsession with Simpson.

I believe he and Briggs will be our two prime ruckmen very soon

I know it seems like he has been around forever but he is still in his early 20’s

He could very well become a great player but very few big guys are good that early on

Given the number of ruck injuries and outs we've had, I just would've expected to see him get at least some game time since there has been so many chances.

Well I don’t know about that. He has never been higher than third in the pecking order and as a team we never really have needed to move past 2nd
