I would be less than honest if i said that the rucks didnt worry me.

Having said that last year several teams at sanfl and afl levels went in with a strong body shorter ruckman who was then agile enough to compete on the ground, young man at power was good example of what i am talking about -- also taking into account few ruckmen seem to hit hard to the outside then the tactics and picking up player is more critical

Eitherway will be interesting to watch over season

Another area of concern for me from last year was how often we had the ball free and then turned it over with poor hand and foot skills -- hopefully key players being fully fit and healthy plus improvement from juniors will addrss this

Quick google search shows he comes with a fair bit af baggage -- possibly delisted not just for ability reasons.

Do agree that at minimun worth a close look which i am sure the club will however all clubs seeking a ruckman (many) will have a look at him which then raise salary cap issues

Once again I'm extremely disappointed we haven't been able to sign a quality
ruckman. Ben Marsh was the last genuine ruckman that we had.

I would much prefer to see Watchman play as a key forward, I think he could
really become a very good SANFUL player in that position.

I was hoping Webby, Watchman and Middleton would be our three marking
Targets up forward.

McPherson is young and he will take another couple of years to develop.
Bottin is also very young however he would be very fit, as for his football
Ability only time will tell.
