reintroduce him as sub too I reckon
Not so sure.

At 21 years he will by then have made a journey from a widely publicised breach of AFL and club rules, followed by broad criticism from all quarters, followed by 3 weeks jail time, to starting in an AFL match, a journey that very few here thought he could ever achieve.

If he succeeds and makes selection that should be celebrated with a starting role.

Nah - doesn’t suit the boy. He’s the type that would get too wound up sitting still for that long. The sub should come on for him half through the fourth. The medicos could say he had star poisoning :cool:

a 2019 version Sydney Stack running it out of the backline and causing mayhem and devastation to the likes of the Dees would be a handy addition this year

I’m a fan of Stack’s talent but his 2019 defensive exploits are way, way overrated.

Granted we were missing personnel but he was part of a defensive unit that uncharacteristically leaked like a seive in the first half of 2019. When players did return, Hardwick and co couldn’t move Stack out of defense quick enough. They even preferred to play Baker back there, someone who up to that point had never played as a defender in his life! The results show the coaches were right too. After the bye, we won every game and only conceded 70 points or more twice compared to eight times before the bye.

I suspect Stack the defender liked to chase a kick more than hold defensive structures. Something that doesn’t work in our team based defense.

fair post TF... and thinking about it our small forwards aren't setting the world on fire right now. He did kick a few pretty creative goals. Will be interesting to see if they play him forward or back IF he gets back into the side.

a month more of footy in him and we will see.. maybe added as a sub to start with.. 2nd half year bonus - no rush.
Unless he gets picked and dominates and then all the geniuses will say “why didn’t we pick him sooner?”
And the thing about Stacky is you know he could do it. His fitness base would be better now than it was 2 years ago when he played his first game as an 18yr old.
Its all about the noggin.
