Both role players were out of the team by the end of the year.Unless we drafted a ready made player or some one that just oozes talent day one... Aarts and George will be ahead of them.
People like to forget that the Tigers are a systems based team and Dimma calls for role players that know the system.
Dimma said we will go again, so i cant imagine any of the draft players getting in if our team stays fit.
Side note, covid protocols will make sure we play injured all year
Role based players were okay at our peak, but we are not there anymore (based on last year), so role players can't be carried so much.
Reckon the real threat to George and Aarts is ageing players like Edwards going forward more, Bolton staying forward more because Ross, RCD, Dow etc will be getting more games, and young players who look pretty good in Cunnington and Rioli jnr.
Can't see Aarts getting a game unless he re-invents himself as a mid (through the VFL). George maybe, but he is doesn't have much flexibility in terms of being able to play multiple positions.
