Clark was recently traded by Geelong to the Dockers, he played 29 games for the Cats.
Longmuir opened up in the role he has identified for Clark.
“We’re going to give him an opportunity down back, we think he can be a really good half-back for us.”
“His run & carry & kicking off half-back we think can really help us set up some play from down there, included he’s got to get some things right with his defensive positioning & understanding our game plan & that type of thing.”
“He will be given an opportunity at half-back to start with.” Longmuir said.
Clark averaged 14.0 Disposals, 3.3 Marks & 2.8 Tackles from 8 games in 2021 for the Cats.

Clark is a consideration for season long fantasy at Round 1, he’s likely to attract a decent level of ownership if there are limited options at his salary range.
He’s a late round option in single season draft leagues.
