Our ruck crisis...

Post by desmondo » Tue May 07, 2019 1:16 pm

News that Sam Draper has done his ACL and needs a reco and Bellchambers is battling an ankle injury has decimated our ruck stocks.

Prolly a good time for Zac Ckarke to stand up and show us what he`s got.

I'm staggered!

Particularly with our strong recruitment and long-term vision with the ruck stocks.
My material isn't very good..Oh...and then there's the bladder problem.

Draper's injury will now open up a spot for the Bombers at the May 27 Mid-Season Rookie Draft, with a replacement ruckman to be strongly considered.
We need more than just a ruckman.

Tragically, yes. I was pleading for it. Devastated now. Who was their ruck on Sunday in the 2nd half? Obviously held the fort.

Ken Hinkley says no.

In other ruck "news", rumour is that St.Kilda are offering $1.4M over 3 years to Draper.

St.Kilda offering Draper $ scares me a bit.
1. Draper looks a likely prospect.
2. If St.Kilda want him, maybe he's not such a prospect.
