We don’t have a lot of depth basically, and none of the kids in the twos except for Mutch and Ridley, Ridley is not big enough yet for the role he would play at afl level.
People bang on about guys like Howlett and Stanton getting games ahead of kids but the kids didn’t earn the games, at least those guys were consistent in the twos, and were only going to be place holders until the other guys got back
We really got hurt when any of our quick guys went down because pace sparse in the 2’s
It’s worse when it comes to inside ball winners
Even worse when it comes to good users of the footy.
Don’t get me wrong, we have some great peices who are all at the right age, but I’m quite worried a about the drop off after that.
To compound the issue this is really not the year to try and address these problems through the draft
