Those announcing the end of Paddy Ryder are premature.

He is the perfect 2nd ruck/Forward. He has just been out of form but when on song takes marks around the ground and offers a mobile target up forward.

Conditions haven’t suited his style of play and, as I say, he’s been out of form. But he is too good a player to be down for too long.

When the sun comes out, watch out for Paddy.

Pretty long time to be out of form.

Form doesn't account for his lack of work rate off the ball.

It is his forward craft that is wanting.

I will give him to the end of the season to get his s**t together to give him another year but he had better hurry up, because he needs to improve a fair bit to get into the side, and stay in the best 22 if we play in September.
