Seen enough Im not sold on Soldo.
When a ruckman cant take a single mark during the game he needs to be replaced
Its time to end the farce and give Chol a run to show what he's got

I think you might find that'd be going from a farce to a bigger farce.

So it's a farce-off.

Chol will be embarrassed if he played Afl. Nowhere near it. People get excited with his cameo games in the vfl. I don't think people understand just how poor a competition the vfl is.

Would rather Soldo and that says it all.

Have no faith in his desire to play the game with the intensity needed at AFL level, however he has some AFL talents and he may just fire up for a week or 2 , while his on the list I see there’s nothing to lose to give him a crack, who knows he may play well enough to get some interest at seasons end.

Three considerations

- can he give us more than Soldo? possibly, possibly not
- has he earned a game? no
- are we confident he will compete for four quarters?no
Think this is a bit of a unique situation L2RTR

In what way?
That we don’t have our only genuine AFL standard ruck available and our back up Soldo is not cutting it other then hit outs, CCJ still a raw light kid, so I see it as we need to find something that can be a more attcking option over the next month till Nankervis is back. I don’t see Chol having a future , however like I said earlier he may just spark for a couple of games as he knows his playing for his career , other option I see is just getting games into CCJ

Think Coleman-Jones is injured?

We know what we get with Soldo. Don't think Chol should play if we expect him to fail.

Not sure Soldo is costing us games. Opposition rucks aren't going forward and kicking goals on him.

Not sure on CCJ May simply be managed.

I don’t think what we are getting with Soldo is good enough, Chol is a high risk but if he can put it together he will give us more then Soldo is , bottom line is both need upgrading , you point is very valid though

End the hitouts farce.

Don’t commit 1 of 22 players to a meaningless stat that doesn’t influence the game. Grigg was the prototype.

Figure out how to prevent the oppo ruck grabbing and clearing it while playing an extra footballer who does footballer things instead.

Someone said elsewhere CJ is out for a fortnight.

Chol appears to have played well twice in the last three weeks. If we think he can give us extra, fair enough, but I don't think this game or our season is calling for a Hail Mary.

Your correct out for 2 and Miller 4

I’m on the “he won’t make it” card but promising to hear he dominated a game in the ruck against Zac Smith who is AFL standard and 3 support ruckman.

A mid season trade period would have been phenomenal this year.
