    With North officially going the full rebuild route, maybe it’s time to lure an experienced ruckman ?

    Schache has some great AFL qualities, but the one's that aren't at the required level have a lot of improving required I suspect.
    The challenge is up to him to decide if he wants to be an AFL player really.
    I don't think it's linked like that
    Bevo flagged that he had no intention of dropping Bruce and even lowered the bar for him saying (which in fairness he had to) that given the conditions Bruce was bringing the ball to the ground. Not a terrific skill in my opinion. Well conditions were pretty good at Adelaide and he grabbed 4 marks and 11 possessions in a game we dominated in the first half

    We can use the above logic for every player selected by the MC and have zero discussion around team selection or the form of the players if you like but playing out of form players week after week should be questioned on a discussion forum

    Schache played 27 games in his first 2 season with Brisbane and then 27 in 2 years for us. We then extended his deal until the end of 2022 and have played him just 2 games this season including one game that was never going to suit him

    Last year he kicked 24 goals (in 14 games) and the year before that 17 so I'm convinced he can play and hit the scoreboard

    Even if you aren't convinced on Schache are you going to use the same logic with Young and any other player to justify why Bruce is a walk up start with selections and every other player has to prove themselves?

    What I am convinced about is form isn't the driving criteria for selection this year

    Re: List Management for 2020/21

    So Majak Daw has been delisted from Norf. Could he be someone worth considering as a back up on our list. He would be cheap and a back up fir Keith, Gardener and English.

    Not sure that's the way to go. We already have Trengove for that.

    I certainly think Schache has something to offer but guys his size who don’t play to their size end up reliant on team structure and who else is in the side. He can be really hard to pick from that point of view.

    Tend to agree that a comparison with the treatment Bruce has been given doesn’t stand up to scrutiny. Can only guess that Bruce being a proven player they have been prepared to wait for him to come good.

    I suppose Schache likes the ball in front and we don't deliver the ball into our forward 50 like that very often. Bruce on the other hand like to hit the packs so may be he is more suited to how we are playing. There will be space for Schache when the likes of Dickson and Lloyd are gone but then again there's JUH.
    There are plenty of talented people in the world. As you already know, talent is not enough. Some of the athletes with the most potential never pan out. What separates the good from the great is determination and work ethic.

    Magnificent work ethic you just know he's going to be a player in a year or two. Great selection.
    Yes he wasn't a left field pick. Can't understand all the fuss.

    2/. When goals > tackles as a small forward you have your focus a little backwards...goals should be the result of pressure, not the result of flukey marks.

    I think he would be unlucky to be delisted but I can understand why the coaches have been reluctant to play him.
    Watching Lonie get to the front of contest well last night, you can see why we’re reportedly targeting him.

    With retirements & obvious delistings, I hope we give Cav one more year to figure it out

    I think hes lost a bit of his explosive athleticism with the injury

    He is closer to the type that might work for us as he can play backup ruck and key defender

    Like Pruess or Campbell, spend his footy career in the VFL, remember English will only get better.
