Don't disagree SPS hasn't delivered on potential but his value would be significantly higher than JSIf SPS doesn't work out this year, I'd happy to involve him in a trade, with something small going Carlton's way. Gives two players who have grossly under-delivered on their talent a chance to work it out with a new club.
He wouldn't have a lot of value left honestly. I did say something small Carlton's way as SPS would be worth more than Schache, but not much more. We're comparing a 4th rounder to a 3rd rounder to be generous to bothDon't disagree SPS hasn't delivered on potential but his value would be significantly higher than JS
Maybe we can do with him what no one else can and have him play with he’s mate Weitering on the CHB goodside but not mongrel enough to be forwardUnfortunately for Schache he just needs it lace out to be effective at AFL level. Has great skills just too easily beaten by defenders.
Obviously only one game but enough to persist with it. Bigger more physical challenges ahead. Be unfair to judge him as a defender until he’s had a full preseason training as one.
I agree he's most likely, but much like Naughton, if he shows enough potential up forward our hands may be tied. KPFs are a far more valuable commodity than KPDs. Not to mention we have Croft's kid coming through in the 2022 draft, so the well hasn't dried up yetIt’s definitely going to be Darcy. The club see him as a long term key defender.
You’re right. But one of them is going to have to play there. And Naughton is too damaging up forward for it to be him. I like the idea of developing Darcy from day 1 in defense amd keeping him there.I agree he's most likely, but much like Naughton, if he shows enough potential up forward our hands may be tied.

Ideally we'll recruit a number 1 ruck, allowing English to play forward/2nd ruck, with Naughton and JUH as the other talls. Means Schache would be utilised down back, where so far he's been playing his best footy since the handful of good games he played in 2019.Have to wonder if the Dogs won't keep him for at least one more year now that sadly Josh Bruce will probably miss all of 2022
It would be interesting to see if ww would’ve given him another contract if he were actually OOC given the few games he played in defense.He’s contracted for another year with us.
Think he is given a preseason to develop as a defender. Shows some good signs down there.
