OK, fair enough.
On point one, I only think that was the case based on last year, and it’s more a statement of how ordinary Hurley was in this regard, than a praise of Hartley.
Second point… Well, if that is the case, we are left short imo if Ambrose and Gleeson are the only other options on the ground to play on big forwards.
My preference would be to play only one of Ambrose or Hartley, for the same reasons everyone has stated, but that would require Hurley finding at least some of that 2015 one-on-one form. If he does, well then this is all an irrelevant discussion.
