Tom Campbell is now a Saint.

DFA, 1 year deal.

Should be a handy back up ruck, needed to be done.

Not sure if worthy of a toast or not but look, only player we have picked up thus far so I’ll take it. Let’s hope he brings the heat.

I don't think he's a huge step up from Hunter but he's proven that he's a solid performer at AFL level and unlike PHunter and Billy Longer - he can actually mark the ball.

Welcome big fella. Obviously has some traits the team has identified to replace Hunter - hope he goes well, but also hope our injury run next year means we don't need to dependo on him too much.
Agreed . Depth player but hoping he will be rarely required.

Just when I think his career is over he gets a lifeline I respect him for that

Yes backup rucks are always in demand, Tom Hickey has been to four clubs before settling at Sydney. Difficult to get a big man who is AFL standard even as a backup

Good signing. Will be nice to actually have a competent backup.

Speaks well...and comes across as being genuine. He'll definitely get a few games during the year which will be good for him. Most of all he'll be a healthy influence for big Heath coming through.
Welcome aboard Tom.

Good depth to have around the club. Sounds like a very good character. He also seems very much on the same page as everyone with what his role will be. I can see him getting maybe 2 years with us maybe 3 if his body holds up.
Glad we didn’t overpay for Xerri. Similar quality coming for free
