Jordan Roughead’s career looked in serious trouble last year. He had fallen out of favour in the two years since he played a pivotal role in the Western Bulldogs’ fairytale September in 2016. But after being traded to Collingwood in exchange for Pick 75 last October, Roughead could be one of the biggest steals of last year’s trade period. The Magpies were already without Matt Scharenberg for at least the first half of 2019 when Roughead turned up at the Holden Centre, and when Lynden Dunn went down again, the decision to bring him to the club looked very clever. And what a difference having a clearly defined role makes — couldn’t the Bulldogs use a key defender right now.

Nice.

And if needed a spot in the rack just for a few minutes or so.

Should he play 2nd ruck this week, given Cox's absence.

I would rather Roughead than an undersized Reid.
Not sure how that's possible in centre bounces when they need to have defenders in the inside 50, but at stoppages, for sure. I'd trust Rough more than Reid. Least he has been doing it for longer.

But then Reiwoldt also did rucking duties in round 2, I think it was and he isn't a ruckman.

Not 100% sold yet, but I'm going through brochures to choose the kitchen splash back.

Good paragraph apart from the last part, don’t need to rub the dogs nose in it they were very good to us trading him for a useless late pick so it didn’t impact Fasolo’s compensation

I noticed that he was in the ruck in the last two centre bounces of the game. So who was on his opposition? lol

Not everyone can be a speedster at 200cm tall. He does well.
Agree. Got burned on a lead by McGovern but he was actually trying to cover for Howe (McGovern's actual opponent) who got turned inside out. Roughy will never match the super quick types on a lead but that's not why he's being included in the defensive group. Saints a side that might test whether we retain the current structure given they're running out of KPP types and they're playing Bruce and Membrey as their KPF's. Selection this week will be very interesting.

playing on Josh Bruce without Darcy Moore as support.

Has a chance to really prove himself.

Doesn't need to prove himself, he's an experienced and very capable defender.

People need to move on, just because he's cost us nothing is far from meaning that he isn't worth much. A genuine KPB with plenty of experience on the field and one of the most decent blokes you could wish to come across.

Plus he allows Moore to be more Attacking
