Geelong coach not fazed by lack of big men

HE might be short on talls, but Geelong coach Chris Scott says he is confident mid-sized Mark Blicavs and Josh Walker can get the job done against Melbourne on Sunday.

Already without big men Hamish McIntosh, Dawson Simpson, Nathan Vardy and Mitch Clark, forward/ruckman Rhys Stanley joined the casualty ward when he

injured his foot in last week's win against Port Adelaide.

Scott said while Stanley had been "doing a great job for us", he was confident the team could cover the loss.

"Neither of them (Blicavs (pictured) and Walker) are genuine A grade AFL ruckmen, but they do propose a different challenge to the opposition," Scott said.

"We'd like to have more players available to play in the ruck but we're certainly not bereft of options," he added.

The coach said he was unsure how many games Stanley would miss, with scans confirming no broken bones, but failing to pinpoint the exact injury.
