Read a lot of ranting about AD value and so on, heres the thing, what’s available other than him if he’s a 1 or 6 and what do they cost you?

Off contract 2020 5/8th
Connor Watson
Lachlan lam

That’s about it. Now you aren’t getting connor Watson so do you think LL is worth a punt and what $$ u Want to pay him? Is he better than AD?

Fullback, similar only edwards and aetkins available, both viable options and I’d assume could be pried away with a decent offer.

Do the tigers NEED that position filled for 2020? Probably not.

You look forward another year to 2021

Who’s available

Tedesco is up end of 2021, bring him home? Is that even an option?

Milford is available end of 2021 as well but by then is he really the player you want? Shaun Johnson? He’s past it. Luke keary? Maybe.

These are all things that factor in to when a club looks at a player for today and what’s available tomorrow. I never get asked for the numbers on players
Off contract for the year of only. It’s always players 1-2-3 years down the track.

Maybe they view Walters as benjis heir apparent. So if they are need to shell 600k for a SPECIALIST fullback I can seE why they won’t budge for AD. He’s simply at this point not worth a 5% cap hit.

Trying to be reasonable in this assessment, I think Corey has 3 issues at fullback.

No real passing game
One basic error in most games
The odd game that is a shocker

I think you can live with one of these issues and do well, but not all three.

I think passing is the only upgrade with AD

I agree though I think AD has a few upgrades on CT, just that they are not huge upgrades.

I think AD has more of a halves-type skillset for a fullback (passing and kicks), which is ideal, and he’s rangy enough to be effective in the air.

Corey is ultimately too short, which is one of his two weaknesses as a FB - Corey is 5’10" and AD is almost 6’3". Short and doesn’t have a pass/kick option, like you said, which makes it easier for opposition defences.

AD however is pretty weak in the tackle - Corey has double the tackle breaks and is just more energetic in the tackle IMO. AD has ever slightly better post-contact m and that might be attributed to his bigger overall size. Corey is only giving up 3 kg despite the height difference.

The arguably greatest fullback of the modern era was 5’10".

Height not a big issue for fullbacks. Don’t need to be tall if you have a good vertical as well.

What do they say, roughly, a good tall man will beat a good little man every time?

You get your variants for every consideration of course, but given the rule change for kick defence this year, I’d prefer to add more height where possible.

I have no idea, for example, how much “vertical” Daniel Toupou has, but it doesn’t hurt at all that he’s 6’5".

I don’t know if you want a 6”5 fullback running at pace trying to clean up grubbers either

If the figures are accurate, I’m not a fan of BJ for $1.8m over 3. Too much $ and for too long

Won’t be costing the tigers 1.8

With Canberra kicking in, looks more like a cost of $1.4m to the tigers over 3 years

That would be closer to the mark

Wests have moved their focus onto BJ Leilua and Adam Doueihi and gaining scrutiny for not looking to be more flexible during negotiations.

When asked about spending on the open market, Maguire was adamant the Tigers will stand strong.

Did we suddenly change our MO? Or does this show how highly we rated Mitchell?
I’m thinking we learned from the Mitchell business and moved forward strategically. Good to see. imo.

They probably got an evaluation sheet from someone in analytics

I think you could be right. I’d like to know more about analytics and metrics valuations. If you think the knowledge would be wasted on a few here then I understand.

It is wasted on the majority unfortunalty
