Quote from: Ken Hinkley
"I should say this really clearly; we haven't got a ruck ready to play," Hinkley said.

"I think people should stop calling for that because they don't know. It's a ridiculous thing to do from outside to say, pick a young ruckman who's not ready to play.

"If you watched our SANFL yesterday, you would see some young rucks not ready to play.

"I'm not going to play people who don't deserve to be out there and can't physically compete when they're out there.

"Don't get confused with what we've got underneath. Don't go and say people should play if you're uninformed with their ability."

Well that ends any chance of a young ruck getting a call-up doesn't it.

Can see how it would be extremely frustrating for Hinkley. Everyone's an expert from the outside. If they're not ready, they're not ready. If the kids are smart they'll take this on board and get better. If they get offended and down about this, then they're not cutout to be AFL footballers imo.

Refreshing to see an AFL coach talk with clarity and honesty.

Good to see Port improving. I thought they would be a Top 4 prospect this year. Definitely a chance for that if they keep playing well and manage Ryder.

More midfield time for Rocky pls thx.

Late to one training session and boom, you're missing this week :o I wonder if he'd do the same if it was a big game or a final?

It's opened the door for Trengove though, keen to see how he goes :)

I'd suggest that a number of contributing factors would go in to it. Late to a training sesh is a very media friendly reason
