Hope not he is a downgrade on Sam Weideman - can't see why we would even entertain this 

We would entertain this as we've already lost Weideman and Mitch Brown off the forward/second ruck depth chart.

Remember against Adelaide, we had to bring these two blokes in as Gawn, Jackson and T Mac were all unavailable.

If Weid goes out and Schache does not come in, you would think we'll be looking hard at the delisted free agency or state league pools to replace Weid and M Brown.

How is it a downgrade?

Both similar player really. You could even say Schache has been more productive at AFL level then Weideman.

Maybe statistically he stacks up similar or slightly better than Weideman - it's a pretty low bar though tbh

Every time I've watched Schache play my impression is that he is slow and lacks any real intensity

I was astonished to see he is listed at 201cm as he certainly doesn't play that tall - his inability to physically compete is worse than Sam IMO who has at least shown some level of vigor when thrust into the ruck

Maybe I'm just a bit underwhelmed generally about what has happened during this trade period - at this point my assessment is that we haven't improved our list nor (apart from Grundy as another ruck to replace LJ) addressed our most pressing needs. Obviously, we still have pick 13 and may deliver a future gun but whoever it is we know will take tile before they make a meaningful contribution

Agree. 

Hard to split them, but neither are ever going to be one on one beasts so the fact that Schache is more mobile and athletic means he is can probably be used in more roles (though Weed can ruck) which gives him an edge over Weed.

And i like the fact Schache is a left footer

We're clearly looking for a KPF and once McKay signed there's not a lot on offer. Weideman will at least play seniors at Essendon and will probably get to play finals again. Schache, well we're dreaming if we think he's the answer but maybe, just maybe he can work his way into the top 5 players at Casey

Geez, this Schache bloke, who has some experience, reminds me of Ross Brewer - a very handy fwd flanker from the annals of old age. He has a similar build, height, mobility and kicks just as well once an opportunity is taken. With a bit of 'mongrel' instilled in his efforts ....

Brewer was incredibly soft, a turn over merchant, and embodied dark dark ages of the late 70s.

I'd be talking to Josh Kennedy about coming out of retirement

That’s a bit tough Wiz ! I remember Ross as a very handy marking forward.   As to “soft” ! No one who pulled on a jumper in the 70’s was soft

Good lord, a soft, disappointing former high draft pick.

get me a bucket

Dogs were crying out for decent talls all year and he couldn't fill a gap fwd or back

Similar to weid. Obviously had a line written through him by Bevo just as Goody did with Sam. worth a try IMHO. At worst he ends up playing Casey all year just as Weid would have done

    PICKET FENCE'S TRAINING REPORT REHAB  Clarry, Max, Farris-White, Melky, Matt Jefferson, Jakey Lever, Joel Smith & 1 Other I couldn't place. Glad to see the Club being ultra cautious with Clarry's thumb BUT the fact he is still troubled with it is worrying (God I hate Selwood) Got there at 10.50 to see Full match Simulation Game between the Blues and the Whites. Quite clearly the Blues were the A Team and the Whites were the possibles. Some interesting faces in the white Team h

    WIZARD333'S TRAINING REPORT I went down and it was locked out for first hour but could see through fence then allowed in. Max Gawn ran laps — it looks like a 3 to 4 week injury.

Jake Lever on bike and walking up n down stairs, yelling out as he does. Melky copped a niggle so ran laps but

    TOUGH KENT'S TRAINING REPORT I journeyed out to Casey today and was fortunate enough to watch two quarters of match simulation. Here is a brief rundown of random occurrences/thoughts. First of all, there was no Jake Lever (ankle) or Joel Smith involved. AMW is still in rehab and was running strongly. It was Blue (Probables) v Red (Possibles) JvR was in blue. Ben Brown, T-Mac, Hibbo and Tom Sparrow were in red. Gus Brayshaw started at half back for blue and stayed there all game.

He’s moving incredibly well.  Some observations from a match sim drill that lasted about 15-20 mins. The purpose se
