    Gold Coast general manager of football operations Marcus Ashcroft yesterday told The Australian Witts had elevated himself to the No 1 ruck spot following an outstanding pre-season.

    He’s a massive man — six foot nine in the old — and he’s an elite runner,” Ashcroft said. “He can run two kilometres as well as any of our midfielders and we think the new ruck rule will help him.

    “He’ll play for us on Sunday against Brisbane and at the moment, he’s the front runner to be our first-choice ruckman once the season proper starts."

    Priced at 217,600 in SC .... One to watch in the preseason games, could be like the year many had Giles (when at GWS) at R2 to start with which worked out well.

    Don't rate him the slightest personally.

    They'll be in big trouble if he's their #1 ruck imo.

    Don't rate him either but keen to see how he scores in the preseason games - I think the other suns rucks are injured so he looks like the main man.

    Says more about Nicholls, who has shown quality than anything.

    Also kind of embarrassing for their mids if he really is matching them and probably summarises why they've stunk for their entire existence!

    Still one to watch though.

    Re: Rucks

    just by virtue of playing as #1 ruck there are points on offer, from the position itself.

    could be a very handy R3 too for cash purposes.
    TEX WALKER. that is all.

    If you're picking McGrath as a cash cow, may as well pick Witts on those numbers. Cash him in for Strnadica when you need the DPP with Ryder going into the byes.

    Re: Rucks

    Anyone game enough to go both of Nankervis & Sandi?

    Or do we just take Gawn for insurance?

    The only issue for Nankervis is that we don't really know where Hampson is at and who would start if he's fit.

    Re: Rucks

    Don't think he's good enough to pick in DT/SC but an option for draft style games is McEvoy. With Ceglar out for the year and Vickery coming in and able to play as the 2nd ruck, it's very likely that Hawthorn will only go in with one main ruckman in games this year and that looks to be McEvoy.


    2016 ave: 65DT, 67SC (21 games)

    Prior averages:

    2015: 75/84 (15g)
    2014: 77/90 (12g)
    2013: 76/93 (22g)
    2012: 89/104 (16g)
    2011: 90/101 (21g)

    Stk up to 2013. 2013 was the year Hickey shared the ruck time with McEvoy so he hasn't been a true solo ruck since 2012. Obv his averages at Hawthorn are poor and getting worse each year which is why he's too much of a risk in most formats. Additionally, his durability hasn't been that great which would be another red mark.

    Reckon its an option or putting Nankervis in the fwds as ruck backup.
    At the moment I feel Sandilands is a better SC pick and Nankervis for RDT.

    I'm happy to let Gawn burn me again, since he is at least super expensive this year.

    I like Nankervis a lot (more than Sandi) so I'm leaning those two at the moment.

    But trying to avoid making a team until after JLT so I can not get emotionally attached to players

    Collingwood’s wretched run with injuries this pre-season has continued, with ruckman Brodie Grundy the latest player under an injury cloud.

    The Pies’ big man left the training track early on Tuesday afternoon, before leaving the club shortly after with his calf strapped.

    Something to monitor.
