The latest is former Essendon champion Matthew Lloyd, who believes Fremantle ruckman Zac Clarke is a better player despite receiving just a a fraction of the pay and publicity.

“To see Clarke take his seven grabs last weekend and the way he gets around the ground, I don’t think he lacks anything that Naitanui has,’’ Lloyd said.

“For all the talk that goes with Naitanui, I think this guy (Clarke) is probably a better player at the moment and has huge growth in him.

“I can see Zac Clarke being the best ruckman in the competition in the coming years, whereas I couldn’t say that for Naitanui at the moment.

“With Naitanui, I’m unsure where his next 100 games are going to take him. I can’t speak for what Naitanui brings off-field. But in terms of pure football ability, Naitanui might be a $400,000 player.’’

Clarke's career nosedived after the PCL injury sustained at an out-of-season rock concert. He has never recovered from it.
