Good to see Hodgson's name thrown in there.
Hodgson played with Magnay for Bullets and Magnay has never looked better. We all acknowledge how important team chemistry can be but ignoe it when we talk selections.
Look at Patterson, Hogson and Law as examples. Both were super stars at Bris and both fell apart elsewhere (two of them at Perth, coincidently). Patto returned and did well again at Bullets. Law is gone.
If Hodgson was injury replacement for Magnay and played well enough to keep, he and Magnay would be reunited with Magnay at the 4, his natural position.
JJ's don't seem to chase super stars and even though Hodge is no super star he and Magnay could be a great fit.
If Hodgson isn't worth keeping, he can be replaced when Magnay returns.
I reckon Hodgson is worth serious consideration.
Story is that Hodgson is looking for big bucks o/s, but not getting it, it seems. So why not?
