Recommended Posts

I was talking to a player’s father on Thursday about the injured players who played in then 2022 finals.one of them was Max who had an injured hip..According to dad Max should not have played the last 4 games .

l realise we now have Brody G , but who is the replacement ruckman if Max goes down?

Who is Casey’s ruckman?

Broody Grundy first 

Will Verrall second 

Josh Schache  third

Dont be such a panic merchant .

other's to do throw in's on forward line eg Tmac JVR etc.

If we lost both Gawn and Grundy I think we'd probably go with Schache/McDonald combo before Verall. He's just a project player ATM.

I'm still trying to get my head around having the best two ruckman in the AFL in the same team. It will make it difficult for a prospective ruck to get a game, but maybe Verall is far enough away that he only just comes right as Maxy retires.

Going off pre season report Verrall has barely done any ball work due to his groins.

I think he he'll be a fair way off senior action.

I was a tad surprised we didn't have a mature age ruckman trial with us for the last rookie spot.

Verrall will be behind the 8 ball and the footy club will be seeking a special permission from the AFL for Farris-White to play in the NAB league.

Schache and McDonald may be the next one in line.

The very question was a panic mode one? 
Sit down and think it out.What happened in 2017? Pedo and Watts and Tmac. 

Just like getting in your car And saying What  happens if we run out of petrol ?

No. All he wanted to know was what our backup plan was if Max or Brodie went down. I'm not sure why you double-down on the panic statement unless it struck a chord with you.

We already have 2 rucks in Max and Brody.  KFW for the future and Verrall as tall.  We only have a list of 44-45, so how many rucks do you want? 

Last year Casey used Bell for most of the year, Daw when he was on the list, with JVR as resting backup.  Even brought in The Spencil!

Casey can do the same again this year without MFC putting one on the list.

Jack Bell was pretty much a regular last year and another promising ruckman Josh Smith had a couple of games before injured. Players of that ilk can fill in if needed.

Max
Grundy
Midseason draft
Schache
T Mc/JVR
The young rucks

In an ideal world you’d have 3 mature options but we’d be counting on Schache filling the void if both starters went down simultaneously.

The danger is both guys cop medium term injuries after the midseason draft, hopefully that isn’t the case

    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
