More I think on it the more I think play him.
Even if just to give him the taste and feel for the pressure and tempo.
It will be nice and fresh in his mind come pre-season where he needs to get to to perform.

He was building nicely to a midfield role until potgate happened so he will need a reality check I think and what better way than getting thrown straight in to the deep end.

Plus, beside Ryan and Cripps, he would be our best small fwd option ATM.

“Unfortunately Willie has a tight hamstring. He won’t be available for AFL or WAFL. We can’t play him, and we’re disappointed that he can’t play, as is he.” Simpson on Willie Rioli

Seriously?

I laugh, because what else can you do? 2021/this side can't even give us one single thing to enjoy to finish.

Well, I thought he would've done it in the first quarter of the Brisbane game, so it was ahead of schedule. Just work him hard in the pre season and get him ready for round one.
