Technically Morgs was in his 4th season when moved to FB and Canberra had a number of injuries so they had to play Milf where they could.
We have seen it over and over again with class players at other clubs, they will drop them in it at 18, 19 no matter what the position. We drop our U20s back from Reserve grades for finals others drop them back from top grade.
We have been the polar opposite of pretty much every other club that has the quality.
We stopped playing 18 and 19 yr olds when Ivan was here, coincidencidentally our development has sucked.
If your good enough your good enough age isn't a factor once you hit 18.
It's not an age thing- it's an experience thing.
Tui has played almost 50 first grade games and tasted international footy.
Atas a very exciting talent but it's a big step up to first grade.
Ask your mate Harry seika....
I'm not saying ata would flop- maybe he would hit the ground running- buy it would be a big (and IMO unnecessary ) risk. Tui is a safer option and next in line.
