Yeh, give him a couple of years & he may become a dominant tap-ruckman at AFL level & if he does, then that's a different story. I've nothing against him of course, I just prefer the Cegs & BigBoy types, that contribute through round-the-ground football as players & so I hope we've always got them (or players like them) available for selection.Not sure how he does at Box Hill Hawks. Maybe someone can help us out, or it's just the small hands thing.... Have seen him dominant ruck for Hawthorn, in the seniors, with aggressive tackling and pressure. Check Mumuford's average marks and sits at 2.3, across his career. Not amazing amounts, but a fearsome ruckman.
Reckon Hawthorn need some enforcers, as opposed to the "highly skilled", left footers, getting lots of the ball.
Reckon the side stinks of weakness, without Pittonet and/or Howe in the mix. Who else offers anything for other sides to fear. Isaac Smith, Guntston, Breust, Burgers, Lewis, Frawley, Sicily... (free kick, goal), etc.. maybe Hardwick, but 79kg doesn't scare anyone.
I know i was super happy when Mumford was out for GWS. Think Pitts is a force who can look after a team.
* From memory & in Pitto's favour, I don't think Cegs was born with all the skills he shows these days. I think he worked bloody hard in a lot of areas to get where he currently is. No reason Pitto can't also do this.
