    Re: From villain to hero - who is next?

    From what I saw on weekend praccy match Schache was given licence to roam a bit. I thought he did OK incl. a few nice intercept marks. Really hope he makes it as he has some lovely skills & is well balanced.

    What about sending Jamarra to CHB?

    We like our defenders to have a bit of speed and I think Schache lacks that but his skill level particularly his kicking skills could be invaluable as could really help with our transition out of the back half.
    I think it's worth a go because his footy IQ is pretty high and he has the habit of getting where the ball is. Schache might not run 100 metres in 10 seconds but he reads the ball off the foot nicely from 50-60 metres and can get to the drop of it before most other players.

    It's always a good learning curve for players. I think it's one of the reasons why Naughton has become a good forward.

    Is Schache aggressive enough to b a key back? He would have to change this part of his game considerably.

    I'm not sure he's agile enough and he isn't great below his knees.

    Might be worth a try at some point though, as it's hard to see him playing forward in the seniors unless we have injuries.

    Are we missing Bailey Dale's numbers?

    Leading us for intercept possessions and showing that instead of being 'just a rebounder' he can actually defend.
    I'll put my hand up and say I didn't expect it from him but right now he's forcing us to keep playing him due to performance

    I think he's currently ranked #1 general defender.

    In what universe is Jayden Hunt a key defender? He's 186cm and playing behind May and Lever.

    I often shake my head at some the Champion Data stuff. Must be certain criteria he meets to match that classification.

    I don't think Liam Jones or Jordan Roughead ticked either of those boxes prior to moving back, but they would be automatic ins for us at the moment.

    Both would cover Schache for speed and agility, especially "explosive animal" Jones.
    Roughy has always been an elite contested mark.

    Schache's go to is running workrate and ability to find space, I don't think defence plays to those strengths.

    Different skill sets though, Roughy had early success as a KPD who could play on certain power forwards (which Schache can't) and Jones was always a pretty quick and gifted athlete if nothing else.

    Schache's strengths are his ability to hit up at the ball carrier, his skills and his endurance but only two of those would carry over to being a defender.

    His lateral movement is pretty average which would concern me, not sure who/what type of player he could match up on? Hawkins/Lynch/Kennedy etc are too big and strong whilst Daniher/Hipwood/Cameron etc would be too quick/agile.

    I like Josh and hope he gets a chance somewhere because on talent alone he really should be a regular AFL player somewhere.

    Re: From villain to hero - who is next?

    The truth is we'll never know how his attributes will translate to defence unless he's given an opportunity to play there. I don't think we'll try it, at least not until Marra's conditioning is up to standard. Once Marra is right to go though, Shache needs to shake things up or else we may has well just trade him to a team that will utilise him better.
    Our 1954 premiership players are our heroes, and it has to be said that Charlie was their hero.
