He might not be ready but it's a good opportunity - if we still want the three talls - to play him IMO. Cas and McGovern are in good form and the smalls are doing their job at the moment, so not sure we need another one to replace McKay. We'd have the option of shielding TDK from the ruck and just playing as a forward. That would probably help as far as match fitness and conditioning go for a young player like him.
Daniel O'Keefe runs through each player who featured in the weekend's reserves hitout.
This says to me "was very raw in first game back, needs an extended run at reserves level to gain match fitness and confidence"12. Tom De Koning
Tommy will be better for the run. He’s been out of action for a bit and hasn’t had a big block of training behind him either. We saw him leap and jump and do all the things that Tom De Koning does. It’ll be good for him to get his confidence back: he split his time 70-30 between ruck and forward.
Not a chance he gets selected for Saturday
