Agree with most of this. Him and Draper have a great connection at the centre bounces, but he is still prone to butchering the ball a bit (was the only noticeable flaw in his game against Geelong) which probably makes him more fantasy relevant. If he tidies up his kicking he’ll be a great POD.
Definitely agree with Fantasia, I reckon he stretched that injury out for a solid 3-4 weeks longer than was probably needed to be right to play. Had likely well and truly mentally checked out by that point.
Daniher maybe could’ve played sooner but he did have that setback and obviously was...
Either BZT in or Hooker back and we go a little bit smaller up forward. Say something like
B Ridley - Hooker - Laverde
HB Heppell - Francis - Hind (Cahill)
HF Smith - Jones - Snelling
F Tippa - Wright - Waterman (resting mids/wings/Draper)
Honestly I’m not overly fussed with what lineup we roll out with round 1 as long as we don’t decide to fall back on the likes of Gleeson and Cutler when there are options who are younger, better and have more upside available.
