Blicavs was named in the 40 man AA squad as a key defender, hamling is not even a good key defender, he is just a role player. Thr bulldogs didnt trade him away for pick 35 because his a gun key defender.No, am not taking the piss and no, I never said recent years.
Am talking career to date and as it stands right now, Joel Hamling has been a better key defender than what Blicavs has and that has a lot to do with the simple fact Mark Blicavs only recently began playing in the backline. Up until a year or so ago, he was a ruckman/utility.
Tom Stewart is a star but is he really a key defender? He seldom takes the top forwards as he is undersized and is more of our general just as Scarlett was in his later years where it was left to Lonergan and Taylor to take the 1st and 2nd best forwards.
Taylor's been a star.
Henderson, been good but he was playing in the VFL for a couple of seasons before he was called up to the senior team.
Who from our key defenders over the years would he gave replaced period in our side??
Dont care that hamling has comsistently been a zac dawson role player, his just not the same shelf of talent.
