Yeah as i mentioned before hope the pick ( player from that pick )or player we get from North becomes a star and Ryan becomes the best ruck forward in the comp in a few years ..Happy we picked up Ryan now .So be it - CCJ goes and yes its a blow. Can understand why - he'll get to play for a start. I saw it as more of a battle between him and Soldo for a spot next year.
Long term, I'm not sure he would have been taking over Jack's spot as such. As a key forward, he plays more like Lynch and not sure how we would have fitted the two of them in. Anyway move on and invest in Ryan now to begin with. How ironic it would be if he came on in leaps and bounds next year.
