    I would have guessed all of Geelong, Bendigo, NB, Murray and Gippsland would be enough for country; given three of them are in the five most prolific drafted players in the TAC Cup I believe (along with Calder and Oakleigh).

    No chance they would trouble WA

    They could. I mean I agree that WA would win 8 out of 10 times, but the NSW/ACT could easily give them a scare.

    WA has a far stronger midfield, back and ruck division, and even though the forward line of NSW is quite good, WA has the 2 best KPF's in the comp plus Hogan, and their smalls have kicked 234 goals in their last 129 games, the NSW smalls have kicked 197 in their last 125 games. Would be closer to WA winning 19/20 times than 8/10.
    Based on the NSW/ACT team that was posted on page 2 anyway

    Have to agree with this.

    WA would get closer to beating the Victoria teams, than NSW/ACT would get to beating them.

    In fairness there were always one or two spuds from the SANFL or (WAFL) who would grow another leg when playing against the Big V.

    So just like old times

    Yep...The Mornington Peninsula and Casey Cardinia Leagues are not considered metropolitan leagues..same as the Riddell League in the north-west, Sunbury, Melton and Werribee Centrals are also considered country clubs.

    Tasmania side but thin but here's a crack

    Birchall Mohr Howe
    Thurlow schade k.kolo
    l.Weller Willis lonergan
    M.Weller Riewoldt Lovell
    Grey brown greenwood
    Hall nankervis Robinson

    J.kolo, Russell, Harwood,fox

    Emergency Bellchambers,Webster, Green

    Thoughts? Bit thin in key defenders and midfield rotations, strong half back, key forwards
    Don't mind the team, could be competitive if all fit

    Bellchambers would get a game as a 3rd tall forward wouldn't he? Alex Pearce would be FB as well IMO.

    Howe - Pearce - Birchall
    Thurlow - Schade - K Kolodjashnij
    M Weller - Lonergan - Webster
    Grey - Riewoldt - Greenwood
    Bellchambers - Brown - Green
    Nankervis - Hall - Robinson
    J Kolodjashnij - L Weller - Harwood - Fox

    Would give Vic Country and Vic Metro a run for their money.

    Who I'd have for VM in bold. May have missed a few. VM would still win.

    Also, Hooker 100% gets a game ahead of Sheppard and JJ

    Neville Jetta would get in ahead of Martin/Swallow/O’Meara/Johannisen/Shepherd

    VC have a better midfield, VM stronger at either end:

    FB: Bews - T McDonald - B Reid
    HB: J Lloyd - Henderson - Witherden
    MF: Ablett - Martin - M Crouch
    HF: Dangerfield - Cameron - Dahlhaus
    FF: Elliott - S Reid - Roughead
    OB: McEvoy - Oliver - Selwood
    IC: B Crouch - Heppell - Oliver - Steven

    Made a mistake with J Cameron in VM.

    Tom McDonald is a garbage FB imo, you'd want to have a better KPD there and play him either as a loose man or a forward. As a pure defender I reckon his brother has almost over taken him already.
