correct. And what happens this year will bear no resemblance to what will happen in the future. I don’t think a 190 cm guy (tops 80 kg) is going to be the centre piece of your future defence. It’s also unlikely Charlie Dean and/or Billie Frampton are likely to be your future, either.
I won't speak for the club but they draft what they see as the best available talent at that pick, within the context of the team's needs.
If a Moore was available at 37 this year, they would have taken him. Tew was seen to be the best defender available at that pick, I back them. You disagree and that's cool too.
Gone Critical will vow that 10-12cm growth spurts are a common occurence. Tew might still break the 200cm barrier!
