Went Fritsch, Hannan, Lewis & KK

Lewis probably deserves to start the season, but would hope Hunt pushes him out early.

would like to see some strong pre season form from Kk but out of necessity he starts.

I can't put down KK as I haven't seen him play for us and he isn't a walk up start. May, who I did vote for as a defender will be part of the 22.

I think KK might play rd1 but has to prove hes best 22.

I’ve gone Lewis Spargo KK and Hannan. Fritsch very stiff to miss. Maybe he’ll be in instead of KK. I can see Fritsch being best 22 I think. I can see Lewis play every week. I also have a feeling they’ll trial Pruess for the start of the year.

I’m struggling to recall who I have picked already. Even before I get to the bench I’m pretty sure I have sent more than one Salem out there.

I’d honestly never heard of this Kol-wazzit bloke before 4 weeks back - now he’s best 22. Solid off-season effort by this unknown guy.

Also thanks Headless. A fine job once again.

Team looks pretty bang on. I'd personally have Hannan in for KK (I'd like to see how he goes in VFL given he was close to delisting at the worst club in the league) and probably juggle positions around but as we've learnt last year the teamsheet itself means nothing.
