I don't have any idea why people are considering drafting a ruckman a "lost opportunity to get the next tim kelly".

We have two rucks who are old and injury prone.

Our next options are smack who is undersized and Joe who is our best key forward.

Rucking Joe is like getting winx to pull the Carlton Draft barrels.

We need a third ruck. And the AFL are idiots. Edyn sibbald is a forward/second ruck.

Agrees. Sibbald is not an AFL ruck. He ain't big enough.

I cbf typing it out again but:


That's the stats for Eastland and Ajang over the past 2 years


Copy & paste maybe?

Also if you're ever wondering why you have never received a call back for a job -

Huh?

You're asking what a player is like, and then asked if he is a top 10 draft prospect, and based off of nothing at all you're happy to get him for a package of later draft picks?

Oh I'm much the wiser for your answe kakkle?

Ethan's response provides a bit more scope.

Not hard? If he is touted a top 10 I wouldn't be unhappy with a free scoop

If he was rated just a rookie prospect then I don't know what the big fuss is about?

Hence I asked what's he's worth his? Huh? What? Meh

Hooker is our tallest key defender, listed at 196 but he doesn’t play a vertical game at all so he may as well be 192.

Need someone that can match it with the Wright’s, Lynch’s and Hipwood’s of the world. Fully agree it’s a need
So that returned to roost basically immediately

With Raz injury all but confirming we won't play finals again this year we should be preparing a request with the AFL FOR compassionate draft inclusions like they gave Suns and Blues last year? Bet you we'd be laughed off.
I am laughing, yes.
