Geelong’s No. 1 ruckman for most of last year, Stanley was dropped for the round 19 trip to Sydney, and the former Saint had to wait until round 23 for an AFL recall. He was left out of the qualifying final against Collingwood but recalled for the remaining two finals. The athletic ruckman held his own against West Coast’s Nic Naitanui and Richmond pair Toby Nankervis and Ivan Soldo. With the departures of Zac Smith and Ryan Abbott, Stanley becomes a key component of the Cats’ on-ball structure in 2020.
