But when rob bullied a richmond 3rds ruck it was all his arrived what a brute who needs sauce?
I think it was more O'Briens performance against Mumford the week before where he got the kudos.

Honestly though Chol showed as much in the ruck that night as Stanley has in his entire career. The bloke is a pea hearted spud.

But if the slight criticism is all you took out of my largely positive post, then maybe you're a lost cause.

In Ryder's case its a matter of how far he has fallen. AA 20 months ago and the premier ruckmen in the comp to now playing in the SANFL.
Chronic Achilles issues and has lost his spring which was his biggest weapon. I really can’t see anyone taking him on especially if they do a thorough medical on him

Can suck it!

Spring/centre square ruck work is the only thing he has left. It’s aerobically that he’s cooked.

Good luck to whichever club thinks they will get either 1 year as a first choice ruckman or 2 years of cover out of him. He’s done.

He was damn good to watch when fit.

Surprised to learn he is 31. Thought he was younger.

Superstar in his prime and I’d be keen if he has two years of reasonable competitive fitness left. But I reckon that may not be the case.
thats my concern.
its not like we're exactly gurus with injury management either.

Would rather guys like Ladhams, Frampton, Nicholls, Cameron, Darcy, etc be looked at.
A couple of these to build some depth (esp if we lose Draper).

Ryder strikes me as the guy you get if your window is now.....ours feels a bit off at the moment

would be a great fit for the bulldogs. we need a ruckman for the short term, someone to see english through the next 2 years. English would still get plenty of games as no. 1 ruck because Ryder gets injured a bunch, and having the extra ruck forward would be huge for the dogs in the short term while we figure out a long term lineup. Also, we definitly have the money for him, im certainly watching that space

One of my favourites to watch way back when, but anybody suggesting that he'll be back at Essendon have rocks in their heads. He wouldn't want to come back (and rightly so) and the players wouldn't want him back (and rightly so).

GWS interested apparently. For some reason I feel like GWS was one of the options in front of him when he went to Port Adelaide a few years back, but maybe I'm misremembering.


Lol I should've read the whole article first. :$

The Giants and coach Leon Cameron previously chased Ryder at the end of 2014 before he decided on a move to Port Adelaide.

Why does he have to be traded?

Surely being out of contract and 32 years old he qualifies for free agency?
