MELBOURNE coach Paul Roos says he is “all for” young forward Jesse Hogan tapping into sources like Wayne Carey as he develops as a player.

Roos says he has had his share of conversations with the champion forward, too, and believes Hogan has plenty to learn from the former Kangaroo and Crow.

He said it’s all part of a steep learning curve that Hogan finds himself on.

“I think Wayne was in similar position when he was a young player. Key position players are very different,” Roos said.

“If you’re an Angus Brayshaw or Christian Petracca or Clayton Oliver, you’ve been able to win your own ball at junior level.

You’re generally around the contest and influence the contest.

“Whereas Jesse is coming in, he’s got a ruckman dropping back on him, is occasionally double-teamed. There’s a lot more to learn for him than perhaps a Clayton Oliver or Angus Brayshaw.

“If you can tap into external resources, I’m certainly all for it.”

Hogan came under scrutiny for his body language in last week’s loss to Essendon, growing frustrated with himself throughout the game.

Roos said he had planned to sit down with Hogan this week but after seeing his showing at training, didn’t have to.

“He responded,” Roos said.

“I said ‘if you respond like that at training and you train like that, come out and play like you train’.

“They’re the learning things you look for as a coach.

“He’ll play the way we want him to play this week. It doesn’t guarantee he’s going to kick five or six goals but that’s what we’ve reinforced — you do what we want you to do and we’ll be happy.”

The Demons play North Melbourne in Hobart on Sunday, with Roos confirming defender Lynden Dunn is virtually a straight swap for out of form leader Col Garland.
