Jake Lever would never play again if Townsend went to Melbourne , I fear for his healthI didn’t mind if Melbourne has a look at him for a role player as a defensive forward who can apply pressure and knows where the goals are. Not sure he’ll make it as an inside mid. Maybe in the rotations but I don’t think he has the numbers.
Reckon Caracella has bought him in for the sole purpose of setting the tone. Not a long term solution. More a cure for the Zaharkais effect.Bit worried that he sees himself as inside mid. I think his value lies in his ability to execute the zone and being able to compete with players bigger than himself through hardness.
As a mid he doesn’t find enough footy and is a slow decision maker so would be a designated blocker/tagger.
