Just as a hypothetical... One of Jones/Weiters is injured, we put Levi in defence, but by coincidence McKay is also injured. All of a sudden, our 3 key forwards are McGovern, Kennedy and JSOS. By no means is this a bad set up, simply not as tall or athletic compared to a proper finals side's forward line.Still surprised no clubs picked him up.....really hope he's our rookie selection KPD depth be damned (send Casboult back if need be)
I'll give another hypothetical scenario, one which was actually quite real for us back in late 2019. Rd 17 Weiters broke his nose, just a few weeks later Jones fractured his voice box. While Levi was able to cover, imagine if those two injuries occurred simultaneously.
My point is, our KPP stocks at both ends of the ground are weak. I'd rather take OMac as reassurance, and sign Maher with our reserves. Pick him up in the mid-season draft if a LTI spot opens up. If not (which I would actually prefer), pick him up next off-season if he plays well in the VFL.
