You started it, Peos took the piiss out of it, I took seriously Peos's piisstake.

Play him as a big mid.
He's a small / medium forward, in the body of a key position forward, who is trying to play ruck.
I actually think McKernan, Stewart and Daniher all have a bit in common when it comes to being tall roaming forwards who can play a bit like midfielders and can pinch hit in the ruck, but sustaining the ruck is probably too much for all of them, but as @munna1 suggested, you probably could get away with rotating all 3 across half forward and taking turns in the ruck and leave them all on the ground.
As @Paul_Peos suggests, using Smack (and the others) in the ruck until Leuey is back and potentially TBC is starting to get up to steam (we hope).
Then we can decide if we want Smack or Stewart as a 2nd ruck/HFF or even send Hooker back as an option if JD, Smack and Stewart can all function as talls in symbiosis with our small forwards and rotating mids (ie: Raz, Walla +/- Green +/- Lav +/- other rotating mids - Colyer, Zakka.
I think there could be chaos for backlines trying to cope with this and there would be a decent ability to hold the ball in and move it quickly and purposefully.
