Jarrod Witts took advantage of the Western Bulldogs’ ruck injuries to put in a dominant display.
In the absence of Brodie Grundy, it was left to Witts to be Collingwood’s number one ruck in the match against the Bulldogs. With Will Minson sidelined and Tom Campbell injured early, Witts took the opportunity to extend his dominance over the struggling Bulldogs’ ruck battery. Witts ended with a match high 29 hitouts as well as an excellent 17 disposals – giving his midfielders first use of the ball thanks to his ruck dominance. Witts is currently the second choice to Grundy in the ruck, but with continual strong performances will be in the mix for consistent selection.
