Let's just see what plays out , but getting a ball winner in the midfield is what we want.
Surely having Keath , Ryder , King , Marshall , Carlisle with Hill , Crouch and Jones makes us far stronger than last year with only having Bruce as a loss.
Remember Steven hardly played and Hannebery might get a full year in with Webster ,Geary , Bytel and Austin ---- you have to be happy with that Gringo .
Steven hardly played and we finished 14th, we just got over the line in most of the matches won and got soundly beaten by quite a few including a rebuilding Sydney nearly doubling our score in the last round. Collingwood finished in the bottom 4 with much better midfields than we have even with those inclusions. We need to have all areas covered to be finals competitive not just some.
I can't see how we kick a winning score when we are one of the lowest scoring teams in the competition and we lose a guy who is a top 10 goal kicker in the league, our second highest scorer and the next best is Matty Parker on 16. We are relying on a heap of luck.
