I have also been bemused as to why Jack often seems to find himself on the outer with our selection panel. He also seems to get little love from the coaching panel in the B&F.Its actually kind of shocking how much alike he is to Birchall. Birchall never got any wraps but was one of our most consistent, high performing players. I think the only time Birch got comments by the media was on game when he got 30 touches at 100% efficiency. Scrimshaw might not have quite as piercing kick as Birchall but is far better overhead and a lot cleaner in traffic when under pressure.
Scrimshaw is a pleasure to watch and I'm still shocked he couldn't find a way in our best 22 in the opening two rounds.
Every single game I have seen him play for the club has been quality and he is always in our top 10 performers on game day.
I also think his toughness is undersold, you don't hold those overhead contested marks without being made of stern stuff.
