Like the ins, disappointed that Lazzaro is out but he makes the most sense with Cunners & Jed back.

Lazzaro out is a dislike.
Laz did enough to keep his spot i thought . Desperately unlucky.
Hope he doesn’t become our version of an easy drop target & revolving door . It’s a great way of killing a kid’s confidence & kill off his career super quick .
This is something that nuff nuff of a coach we used to have would do .

I get what you’re saying but who would he go in for?

AFL is a ruthless sport

Well, Noble seems to feel Polec isn’t required.

At all.
Seems that way. At only 28 and with 3-4 years (theoretically) of really top end football left in him you’d think we want him back in sooner rather than later, especially if we think we are losing Froggy next year.
Be interesting to see if Jared pushes through it and has a good pre-season, there is a spot for him if he wants it.

It’s funny that you put those two together….Think Lazzaro has a bit to offer, though he needs to get a bit more uncompromising when it’s his turn. Atu has an admirable commitment to go, even when it’s unnecessary.

Am I the only one who thinks Tarrant is as not a big of a loss as it seems? Like yeah he is an integral part of our backline but McKay has proven that he can do it on his own?? Dixon, Hawkins, ect
He's had a long term injury at the wrong age.

I've got no doubt he'll bounce back, but he is not indispensable anymore
