Agree pretty much completely with all that, but you don't need to be terribly amazing to make the 8.Still lack a bit of top end talent though. If we play finals it doesn't look like we'd give it much of a shake. Probably our bests are Gresham, Billings, Ross, Marshall, Hanners and Hill. Not a super star amongst them yet, although 2016 Hanners was a star. We really need Hunter, King and Battle types to become stars to step up into a more dominant side.
We won 9 games this year, with what was arguably the worst injury run of any team (Champion Data rated it the worst by games missed by best 22, as of about R20) and to the team we generally had on the park this year, we could potentially add Hill, Hannebery, Roberton, Jones, Geary, Ryder, Howard, King, Webster, Butler and Bytel (at the expense of just Bruce, Newnes and Acres from our general team this year, at this stage), so I wouldn't have thought that winning as few as 3 extra games would be out of the question.
Especially with 3 extra games on our home ground next season, and with another preseason into the likes of Gresham, Roma, Hunter, Battle and Coffield, who are the ones who we need to take us to that next level.
