Poll: RoMo and Preuss Replacements

Written by Gunboat Diplomacy on February 18 2021

Set to miss at least a month with a stress injury to his foot, Rowan MARSHALL (STK, $557.2k) will miss Round 1 – I was so looking forward to starting him, ugh! Given he’s the 5th most expensive FWD option, you won’t need to move mountains to replace him with someone a touch more expensive or you can pocket some coin by dropping down to some equally viable options. So, who are we thinking?

Who's the best premium priced Marshall replacement?

On the same day as RoMo was struck down, we found out that Braydon PREUSS (GWS, $303.0k) required a shoulder surgery expected to rule him out for 4 – 5 months (probably 6+ given it’s GWS). The appeal of Preuss was his cheap price, allowing coaches to apportion the large savings elsewhere by omitting (most likely) one of G&G. Not only will those who had him have to replace Preuss, but a wrench will have been thrown into their structure. Do you go back to drawing board and re-think you structure or try to find a similarly priced option?

Taking into account the structure of a team that had Preuss, how would you replace him?

  1. Marshall was only forward with ruck swing for me and I’d gone off Preuss a while ago.

    The bigger question is are there new bargains to be found?

    With no dpp fwd/ruck to swing, will people take Treacy or is the not unlikely possibility of Matt Flynn playing #1 ruck at $123k making people reconsider where they get their donuts?

    With Marshall out, Ryder still injured and a massive injury toll at St Kilda is part time ruckman and honestly good tryer Shaun McKernan now a worthwhile selection?


  2. Does anyone know anything about Tom Fullarton? He looks promising but I’m guessing Daniher probably makes it more difficult for him to find a spot in Brisbane’s 22…


  3. For the moment I have switched Marshall and Treacy, and gone with Nicnat…Treacy can still loop from the fwd line. This allows a playing ruck in r14 and some flexibility in maintaining Treacy dpp
