No doubt, I’m not suggesting those kind of players grow on trees. It was more a comment on the value of having a big-bodied midfielder who can also take contested marks up forward, particularly in the context of Cripps potentially heading into free agency soon. Petracca and Shaun Higgins would be other examples.You're talking about 2 Brownlow medalists. Pretty hard to find. Yeo can push forward and take a grab but we can't afford to lose his aggression around the ball.
I agree re: Yeo being needed around the ball. Plus his goals usually tend to come in open play rather than from him taking contested grabs
