Would love to have him back at Norwood if you dont want him

Rowey will be a starting 22 player for Carlton if he is fit to play. The new kids like Weitering will be developed to play both ends - and this can only happen if blokes liek Jones/Sylvagni/Rowe can slot in down back - all three have shown great form and enough ability to release Weitering. Williamson will probably be tried further up on a wing and Docherty is already slated for more midfield time.
Bolton is into players being able to play in multiple positions.
I think Rowe is pretty well finished now that Jones has proven himself as an excellent replacement.
Can't see the club opting for him over Jones, Marchbank, Weitering, Macreadie….I think we're ok for talls in the backline.
He's only been a pinch hitter in the forward line a few times that I can recall.
Tall backline options in 2018
Weitering Marchbank Macreadie Jones White ASOS Plowman maybe G-Mac
Tall forward line options in 2018
Casboult McKay Kerr Silvagni maybe Charlie
Rowe can fill either (as can others above) but with more mobile footy being played and more need for midfield types I think we have it covered. Handy option though
Rowe is done. Players are passing him
Won't be best 22 next year, yet if he hadn't suffered the knee injury, would have most likely played every game in the seniors this season.
It will be handy to know that if ASOS or Jones are unavailable for any reason, Rowe will be able to slot in as an experienced, big bodied KPD.
Wing. CHB will be taken by Hampson
Hampson will be glad to hear that Army is sticking firm on his choice to retire.
Never forget. Greatest CHB in the history of AFL.
I like this approach.
The premiership team didn't have a 2nd ruckman, neither did WB from memory.
Curnow has already shown he can take the ruck around the ground (probably more capable than Grigg who played that role all year for the Tigers).
I'd like another one or two players who are quick small forwards first and midfielders 2nd. Can see Polson or Lebois filling that role alongside Pickett.
Think we'll be seeing more of this next year
Rowe will be there for the big bodies.
I'm looking forward to Rowe, ASOS and Jones all playing (subject to match-ups) . I think you'll see Jones get even more dominant.
People have been saying that for years, and yet...
He'll be missing for the first half at least
Well exactly, so it's all a moot point at this stage.
Hey, since when have rookies been allowed to start new threads anyway?
(I forget what the posts threshold is.)
He has a bung knee and 1 ball and you want him play the hardest spot on the ground? he never made it as a forward which is what he was initially recruited for
Maybe for the Bullants in a Liam Jones style reversal, but cant see it happening at AFL level, actually as much as I love Sammy cant see him getting back in the side at all unless we get hit with injuries.
Not the worst idea, especially if it pushes Levi further up the ground to play a type of Leigh Brown role and not expected to kick goals. Harry McKay needs time up forward though but like Joe Daniher in his first few seasons McKay playing more as third tall from pocket might be the go just for 2018. Rowe only has a year in him or two at best. The only snag is, there is still some chance someone like a Kerr or Jack Silvagni is better suited to be used more as a full forward type than a flanker type and prefer we not be stopping players develop in their best position for long term. Rowe is not our future so at this stage of his career he just needs to fit in with best that balances the needs of where we aim to be in two or three years time as a team.
Rowe will be playing at Northern next year, and only play AFL if we get injuries. Definite no at FF.

Hope you don't get stranded on 99 posts with insights like that.
Rowe is too slow for full forward.
He will only get games if jones, silvagni are injured as the 3rd fullback option or if casboult and mackay are injured as the 3rd fullforward option
Does this really warrant a stand alone thread? Yes I know what's rich coming from me.. But really, there could be 1,000s of possible strategies...
Maybe we could have a thread for each one of them.
More floggings at the hands of the paddle pop lions?
