    Something to keep in mind is that JJ was playing in those last 4 games last year, so there is at least some data for Daniel alongside JJ.

    Re: Forward Midpricers

    Player profile - Rowan Marshall (FWD)

    SC: $341K (B/E -24)

    JLT2: 111DT/112 SC
    Round 2: 103DT/114 SC
    Round 3: 122DT/111 SC

    Has been impressive playing as the sole ruckman, up against Bellchambers and then Lobb, so not the best ruckmen in the league but formidabble players in their own right. Watched him closely in the Freo game and he was awesome really.

    Averaging

    15 disposals at 80%, 11.5 of those 15 contested.
    5 marks
    30 hit outs (20% to advantage)
    6 tackles and 14 pressure acts
    7 ground ball gets a game and also 4 intercept possessions

    What really looked good of his game against Freo was his work once the ball hit the deck at stoppages, his ability and mobility to get around the ground and attend ruck contests, and his general footy IQ. He dropped back behind the play a few times to help out in defence. Has a really nice kick on him too.

    He's surely beaten Pierce out for the number one ruck position now, Billy Longer played in the VFL on the weekend, coming back from a hamstring injury so he's the obvious concern to the number 1 ruck role. I'm considering him as a downgrade for Darling as the extra cash allows me to grab a Lloyd or Macrae who are absolutely killing me by not owning them.

    Yeah considering him for Dunkley too. In the role he's in, looks like a great pick, just a matter of whether he keeps the solo ruck spot when Longer is fully fit and/or if he can still put up respectable numbers when Longer returns.

    Re: Forward Midpricers

    I’m considering him for Darling too, he just scores so well as the number one ruck. I don’t think Longer has shown enough over the journey to demand that spot, but it’s still a concern. If Marshall keeps this up he will have it on lockdown.

    Re: Forward Midpricers

    Longer is absolute trash and was behind Pierce and Marshall on merit last year so I'm not sure he's the threat, for mine the bigger threat would simply be an injury to Bruce that forces two rucks with him being the much better forward.

    He's playing great though and really forcing the hand right now, if I someone who was failing I'd be certainly looking his way but I don't think I can generate the cash needed without doing something stupid, would be nice to find a way to get Setterfield or Drew up to him but I don't see it.

    Re: Forward Midpricers

    Yep, i was looking at him today as well for the same trade Darling. Over the 2 games he's played he's had the most CP and clearances for St Kilda too.

    The flip side is Darling has 4 of his next 6 games at home and against some easier opponents.

    Pity the cash from the trade can't get you a under performing mid to Libba.

    I could go 1 higher pricer rookie (Collins/Scrimshaw/Butters) to Lockhart and get Marshall for Setterfield. Tempting.
