It would be a lock away play. Brooksby is only there to ruck at box Hill to shoulder some of the load on Reeves; he won’t be there 2022. Cegs, I can’t see him as a great hope to be extended past 2022..2023 at best if he has a great year this season. BB the same.With restricted list sizes, why would we want another ruckman to sit behind the 4 already on our list?
That would make zero sense to have 5 on the list at this point in time.
If we’re going to take a player or two before the season starts, it won’t be a young ruckman.
If there is a ruck there now (Heath) that may have been a second Rd pick, if not for Covid, that we can put 2-3 years into it just sites up the position.
Patto’s time at Hawthorn it a pretty good template of the expectations on a developing ruck.
Heath would be the 4th ruck in 2022 and No.2 at Box Hill and possibly the second ruck in 2023 if he is good enough.
