Regarding Lemmens quality Dew disagrees with you. Just listen to today's Inside50 podcast available on Suns website. Pretty glowing endorsement from Dew. It's not all about stats. I guess for Dew Macpherson is in the same category.Ahhhh Macpherson is a much better player than Lemmens.
Rankine has not played at AFL level but think they can be in the same team.
Compared with Lemmens, Macpherson over his past 2 years has averaged
- tackles inside 50
- goal assists
- Free kicks against
(Lemmens was in the top 12 in the LEAGUE in free kicks against AND clangers)
Macpherson can and does play more midfield.
As hard as Sean goes his skills are terrible and he is just out of control.
Lemmens had 1 goal and 2 goal assists in 10 games played exclusively as a forward last year
