If his Dad isn't an advocate for the merits of moving north, not sure who would be. As for Lachlan, has anyone seen or heard anything to suggest he is considered by the Lions to be of the necessary standard? I haven't and he has not featured much at a representative or TAC cup level.
Of course, we've already had a pretty significant father son prospect turn us down in Marc Murphy.
Only slightly related, but I'm not a big fan of the father son rule. It's been an anachronism ever since the start of the national competition but it's going to become more and more out of place as the era of increased player movement really takes hold. I can't imagine the Suns are going to have too many F/S opportunities in the next generation.
In truth it doesn't leave a big footprint, but over time it will probably benefit heartland clubs more than frontier clubs.
