“We feel Cal is more a ruck/forward rather than a forward/ruck.”
“He was keen to get more opportunity in the ruck, and we think we can provide that.”
“Goldy (Todd Goldstein) played a lot more forward last year, and it’s clear that he can do that.”
“In the short term, they can clearly share the ruck duties.”
“Long term we think Cal is a really good option in the ruck.” Kangaroos List Manager Glenn Luff via Trade Radio (October 1).
Coleman-Jones averaged 10.5 Disposals, 3.8 Marks, 7.6 Hit Outs, 1.6 Tackles & 1.4 Goals from 8 games for the Tigers in 2021.
Nth Melbourne receive:
Callum Coleman-Jones, pick 42,47 & 2022 4th Rd
Robbie Tarrant, pick 40, 2022 2nd Rd
FANTASY IMPACT: Callum Coleman-Jones averaged 57.8pts from 8 games in 2021 for the Tigers, he scored a season high 76pts against Adelaide in Round 11.
The Kangaroos will likely give more opportunities to Coleman-Jones at the ruck position in 2022, that could come at the expense of Todd Goldstein.

Eventually it appears Coleman-Jones will be the No.1 ruck at the Kangaroos, but senior coach David Noble is at least in the short term a proponent of a dual ruck set-up. This will likely create volatility in fantasy scoring for both Goldstein & Coleman-Jones next season.
Coleman-Jones is likely a pass in season long fantasy at Round 1, he’s a speculative pick in late rounds in deep draft leagues.
Keep in mind the eventual takeover for Coleman-Jones at the No.1 ruck position for future reference.
