I was wondering what had happened to you Bomber!
Carlisle / Daniher ruck combination mark II ?
If Jimmy can be a break even ruckman that would be a great thing (not for Smack mind you), but given his tank and mobility, it could be a point of difference if it can come off for at least enough to be a ruck back up, or if with Joey at least 50/50%.
Options like this, with Draper coming along more than very nicely and a free hit with a Category B rookie project ruck in the works, means we can breath easy with our ruck stock and contemplate life after Smack nowish, and life after Leuey soon… In fact if next year we can prove a Stewart / Daniher ruck/forward combo can work, even TBC might be expendable.
With players like Stewart and Daniher being functional in the ruck, it is like having an extra player on the ground in terms of disposals and filling spaces on the ground. But I still like having players like TBC and Chooka on the ground in terms of the intimidation factor and ensuring our players can walk tall.
