Damien Hardwick says he would entertain the idea of lending out young ruckman Samson Ryan to another club hit by injuries if the rules allowed it.
"Anything that gives a young player an opportunity to play the game, I love," Hardwick said.
"We've got a young kid by the name of Samson Ryan that we'd love to loan them. So he's sitting there playing forward in VFL footy. Not that I'd like to give them Samson if he's playing against us, but anything that gives a player the opportunity to play at AFL [level] we should look at, absolutely."
