I gave him a 0. He is pure outside, a poo user of the ball when he does get the hand ball receives, doesnít block for his team mates and doesnít contest a ground ball when he needs to. Apparently heís fast but Iím pretty sure Iíve seen him get run down heaps of times so thereís that as well

Iím sorry heís the whipping boy of 2023 but man itís always a feeling of dread when he has ball in hand.

At least he isnít fat.

I'd say most disappointing season on list.

We turned down Hugo as part of Hopper package and used picks instead. Has halved his market currency from last year.

In his defence was played as a sub a lot and his role from when he was drafted changed.

Needs a big pre season and huge crack at it next year. If he has the same year as this year. I can see Hugo delisted next year.
Go Tigers!

Umm not quite

Hugo was contracted and didn't want to go, so he stayed.

Can't trade a bloke who's contracted if they don't want to go.

Same with Soldo, GWS were interested he didn't want to go

Really that rule needs to change...players want FA then they need to give up the right to veto trades

That's how real FA works in other sports around the globe

Not sure he has halved his currency as we have a deal on the table and 3 other clubs have real interest.

Let him go I say, he went backwards this season*** at a rate of knots and we have others who can play his role much better than he does.

*** not that he was great prior to this season, far too many weaknesses in his game IMHO

Big fat Zero.  needs to be given away. needs to be shot out of a cannon as quick as we can ram him in. just needs to go.
Cannot believe i'm saying it but is actually the softest player on our list.

Yeah u can. Every other team does it including the best team going around now - Grundy and Trealor,example A. Just tell they are better off elsewhere and theyíll go.

True some do go but in all your examples as you said yourself they agreed to go

Hugo didn't agree for whatever his reason, so he stayed.

Reckon he will go this year. Question becomes what will we get for him
