Not so sure.reintroduce him as sub too I reckon
I’m a fan of Stack’s talent but his 2019 defensive exploits are way, way overrated.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
Unless he gets picked and dominates and then all the geniuses will say “why didn’t we pick him sooner?”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.

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.
