Our mistake wasn't letting the likes of White and Nahas go. They are both average at best.

The mistake was we didn't attempt to replace them until the 2014 draft. Hence Steve Morris up forward.

He had to go.
He did stagnate in 2013 in the 6 games he played, yes.

Just as a 2015 average comparison RN v Steve Morris in 11 games in 2015:

14 disposals to 8
3 marks to 2
1.6 goals to 0.4
0.6 behinds to 0.3
3 tackles to 3.4
2.1 inside 50s to 0.8
0.4 score assists to 0.6

While that comparison doesn't surprise me, and it is good to line the figures up as you have done, nahas just looked like he hated playing for us.

Perhaps nth raffled off his Xbox to keep him focussed and pay a few wages?

Losing Nahas isn't going top hurt RFC in the short or long-term ... if it did, then the Tigers would be in bigger trouble than one could imagine.

I'm glad to see he is doing well with the Kangas. I don;t think he was happy at the Tigers in 2013.

Only player I can think of that in order to gain 60 meters after taking possession has to run 30 and then kick it as far as he can. ;)

Not worried about little Robbie. He always faded when the pressure came. Couldn't ride a tackle.

We're not worse off without him as overs have said, it's our poor management for not planning to replace him and Jake King.

It does hurt because we're investing draft picks and time into players like Lloyd and Butler, who have a ways to go just to reach Nahas standard. One of our most obvious deficiencies is specialist small forwards, but we gave one up who has since been a constant presence in a top 4 side, while the replacements can't make our team. That's the definition of poor list management because we are left in the lurch until someone else comes along. If we'd had an upgrade ready to go, then yes, the delisting of Nahas would be understandable.

Correctly said TB.

Hardwicks aversion to rating leg speed is the root of those guys going.

I don't think it is leg speed that he has an aversion to. I think it is one dimensional forward pockets who can't play elsewhere.

This. And the earlier comment about his inability to ride a tackle. The game has moved on and you have to be able to work in traffic and both take and dish out physical pressure. Nahas was unlucky that he was in the same side as Sheds who manages much more pressure and sticks his tackles.

Robbie kicking 4 today for 17 for the season so far from his 11 games. Averaging 1.6 a game in 2015.

A massive squib. Remember him deliberately falling over in the centre sq when having to run with flight of ball once because he didn't want to risk being taken out. North are welcome to him

He was always good when the going was good, you won't see the sight of him when the sh!t hits the fan

Lloyd's put in games as good as Nahas. Nahas was pathetic in his last at the Tigers. And his first year at North wasn't much better. improved this year but still very limited player. Besides he turns 28 soon, Lloyd is 25, rather put the time into Lloyd. If he doesn't make it, keep turning them over until we find one. Also Tigers picked up Knights as an upgrade replacement for Nahas type. It's just a shame he's had the injuries he's had.

Don't think you can claim Knights was ever picked as an upgrade replacement for Nahas, that's stretching it a bit.

Small forward who kicks goals.

We haven't got one.

We let him go.

Great list management! ::)
