    If he doesn't have a nickname then he doesn't exist as far as I am concerned.

    I'm suggesting Wilfred after the actor who played Albert in Steptoe And Son
    Wilfred is my cats name, interestingly enough he is missing a number of teeth….
    More of an In Bruges guy?

    McComb is probably a better centre bounce mid than Bramble, but I think Bramble would have him covered in most other roles.

    Re: WOOF Welcomes Lachlan Bramble to the Kennel

    My first reaction to this appointment, was that he could be the Duryea replacement?

    Although maybe with his athletic traits he will play half back flank and allow us to utilize Bailey dale on the wing?

    Certainly more chance of a meaningful contribution.

    That may change when we see him play.

    I don't get the 'Dale to wing' obsession. He's an AA quality backman, and in the last 12 Months we've signed Williams, Scott, Baker, Poulter, Arty Jones and we just drafted Freijah and O'Driscoll, and Hawks fans seem to think Bramble's best position is either a running HB or defensive wingman.

    I can still remember my dear old nan (who died in 1980) watching Steptoe and saying 'oh that filthy old man'
    They say Burt Lancaster has one, but I don't believe them.

    The knock on Bramble from Hawks mates is that he undoes a lot of good work by missing his kicks so there is work to do there.
    Both Hawks mates were surprised he was delisted.

    Maybe Hawthorn had to make a difficult decision in order to fit Gunston and Giniven's wage in? After all they probably hadn't planned on either of them landing at the Hawks before the trade period so anyone without a contract would have been in the gun.

    I doubt they've got a squeeze on the cap and they should be chasing some bug names next season.
    Bramble wouldn't be on a lot. Probably just came out of contract at the wrong time and they already have a couple of taggers.
