Need: Ruck depth

The Eagles relied on two ruckmen in their premiership campaign with Scott Lycett playing the majority of time in the midfield and Nathan Vardy pushing forward. However, Lycett looks set to depart the club and with Nic Naitanui not expected to return until midway through next season the Eagles could use another ruckman to fill that void.

Who?: Tom Hickey

Hickey is expected to move away from St. Kilda this off-season and has proven to be a solid ruckman throughout his career and could be enough as the premiers wait for Naitanui to return.
