Petrie seriosuly was the biggest spud donning an afl jersey this year... but he was played as a forward and not a backup ruckman... Still unsure about the idea... Lobbs a must but the greedy fuker wants 750k for his 2nd contract. not even ablett or judd got that for their 2nd contract...

But we will need 2 more ruckman to asisst giles and lycett.... getting just the one more will leave us with only 3 for most of the year which is still to scarce.

best option. draft one and get lobb. chances of this are slim. But we can hope.

We should draft English

he will probably go too high, would be good for pick 12 for sure. Ruckman are hard to find... I think someone would take him around pick 6-10.

Yeah I dunno much about the draft but I assumed English would be gone by then. Plus I would probably rather pick a fast outside mid with good skills at our first pick and take a punt on a really raw ruckman. We really only need someone for next season as the NicNat-Lycett combo will see us through for some time.

Good news! He's an important role player now that we've retired Patty Mac.

Fast outside mid... Hmm seems like lewis jetta lol. We need some big bodies mids i reckon- the fyfe/danger/ bont/ kennedy(syd) type. But we also lack pace, and the guys who do have it hill, jetta dont do anything, so we need pace too which makes it hard on what to take first. Duggan was a pick 12 and he hasnt come on, not strong and slow as well. You need to be one at least to be decent. but then we need a ruck too haha. Hopefully there is still a ruckman floating arounnd at like pick 50 or something for us to snag.

yeah a long way to come for just one year. dont bother Drew!

http://www.afl.com.au/news/2016-09-14/lycetts-knee-causing-eagles-serious-concerns

THERE are serious concerns over West Coast ruckman Scott Lycett's 2017 campaign, after he was sent to Melbourne to get a second opinion on his posterior cruciate ligament injury.

Lycett battled a sore left knee in the last month of the season. He did some damage to his PCL midway through the season but played on.

He suffered several knocks that hampered him in the last two rounds of the home and away season and the elimination final where he hobbled off early in the second term against the Bulldogs after hurting the knee while laying a tackle.

The Eagles have confirmed Lycett needs some kind of surgery but the extent of the operation is unclear.

AFL.com.au understands that the normal course of action for a partial PCL tear is rest and recovery but a complete tear would require a reconstruction that could rule him out for anywhere between six and 12 months. Any meniscus or cartilage damage would also be concerning going forward.

flower me,this is obviously why we are looking at Petrie
