Not sure about the need for another ruck. Assuming Stanley plays 15 or so games then Fort and Abbott would have ruck duties in the VFL with these young blokes rotating some minutes. If we get injures then we could just bring in a ruck from the local league (if the rules allow it).

Imassuming its about training as much as its about playing. What ever the clubs thinks is the best for their development.

Not sure how much we'll realistically see of Abbott in the VFL and reading a few articles last year, I get the impression he's looking for more balance between work, life and football commitments

He's starting a new job, returning to play for Grovedale locally and then VFL when required - doubtful he'll be first choice selection in the VFL, but more a backup option for when others aren't available, managed etc

Fair call
