You are probably right but he is only 25 and appears to be a very hard worker. Our backline was amazing this year, but dont be fooled - it needs a big overhaul if we are going to go back to back.. If the Cats had Hawkins, we wouldn't have made the GF. We counter argued that with "well if we had Rance...." at the time but.....Next season, we dont have Rance & they do have Hawkins alongside Jenkins too now. I do fear that our very short backline & its system which worked so well in the backhalf on 19, can easily be exposed by good coaches & 6 months of planning for it. The club MUST find another competent tall backman from the current list for 2020. Garthwaite is the obvious choice but i think many doubt he is good enough, for good reason. Too Slow. Maybe they develop K-Mac as a more "3rd tall in" type. Most likely they back in Balta early and hope it works. If he struggles it will be interestingDoubt it. Already had a stint at half back in the past and just wasn't good enough. Ellis played wing predominantly last year and Rance didn't play so who would KMac be replacing in the backline? His greatest asset was his space blocking ability on the wing. For me it's wing or nothing, maybe as Richo said a defensive forward but I think we have better prospects in that role to come back eg Stack/Higgins. We didn't require KMac for the best part of our season in 2019, last 9 games to the grand final. Unless something improves dramatically not sure why he'd get the nod in 2020 as anything but depth in case of substantial injury.
