You haven't seen the reserves then. Mauibum for a first year KPD had an outstanding season, lock down defender. He will get games next season probably as we look to rotate Grundy a bit to keep him fresh.
Not to say i dont think he is capable, but just guessing that next year is the year we do the obvious and start doing more squad rotation absolutely bewilders me. Like, there has never been a sign of horse doing that so why is it about to start just to blood maibum?

Delighted that it looks johnson is here another year. Our kpd stocks are stacked. Grundy will play forever, johnson aliir and melican have all played at s really high level before and maibum looks promising. I hope we play taller and get rampe onto smaller blokes and not having to be as accountable for the oppo's best forward most weeks. I think that will really give us some drive and hutzlah coming from defense.

Maybe. They could also just be giving him time to think.

Surely aj sticks around...finally has a chance at a full pre season, i know there is more to life than footy, quality of life etc...and this may sound harsh, if either party pull the pin, the past 5 years has been a waste of time

Looking Nanks doing so well, did we keep the right ruckman! Similar to letting Biggs go when we needed running half backs
For about the four millionth time, Nankervis was reluctant to be drafted to Sydney in the first place and decided not to stay once his initial contract had finished. So there was no "did we keep the right ruckman" question to start with.

I just want us to get players that are accurate kicks especially under duress.

We have three good marking targets in Reid, Rohan and a healthy Tippett if that's where we leave him and you just need to ball in Buddy's general direction for him to do magic. We should be kicking 100 points a game easily.

Only if the team switches to an open zonal style, instead of contested.

The 4 cut were my guesses earlier in the year, as soon as Edwards was moved fwd I thought it was curtains for him. Id like to see one of Miles or Mckenzie landed, then speedy half forward winger types. Think we're going ok talls wise at the moment. Need some star goal sneak smalls.

I don't think Nank has outperformed any of our rucks this season. His performance has been the same as any of our rucks when we let them play >90% of the game - even Towers has been equal to Nank

Nanks has had a far better year than all three of our rucks. The worry was that he was always slightly undersized and his tank needed further development. However, I reckon we might have kept him but Richmond were able to offer more than the rookie dollars we had left in the pot. With what we are paying Tippett and Sinclair, it certainly looks like the ruck department will have no more dollars thrown its way to solve the mess it is in. We need Tippett to be traded or become a healthy first ruck. Sinclair needs to be a forward who does a bit of ruck work. Don't have a lot of confidence that either will happen. The horrible irony is that if Naismith or Cameron develop well, do we have the coin to keep them when other Clubs come knocking?

i am genuinely curious how you know he was reluctant to come to sydney?

i thought he came from tas...

that was the best game i have seen him play last night. in hindsight, we should have traded tippet instead.

Yeah he's a Tassie boy. Maybe he wanted to save half an hour flight time back home.

Nank spends more time on ground than any of our rucks. Also all of them have had a season interrupted by injury. Nank's had a very good season - I'm not saying he hasn't. I just don't believe he's any better than any of our rucks
I agree with this, Richmond don't go in with two rucks like us.
