Wilson has been borderline sensational the last few games and realistically is ahead of Young, Hughes, Conca and Hill as players who would spend time in defence in your side. And I like all of those players. But I definitely agree that Cox’s form will make the Brains Trust think about how to fit all of Pearce, Hamling, Logue and Cox into the side. And like you I think Logue in the midfield, if it came off, would be an aggressive option that should be considered. A 5-10 minutes per game ruck is a variation on that.
Willo's omission was an oversight on my part... definitely best 22 so no arguments there

Always fun to do these and pretty interesting when you think of the changes every year (Not many were expecting Bewely and Shultz to be regulars at the end of last year, and even less to be thinking Matera and Blakely were no longer best 22) Anyway, here's mine - it's on the assumption that Henry comes good and Hamling and Pearce are fit (big question marks). It probably won't happen because he is contracted but it's time to hang up the boots for Stephen Hill.

Young Pearce Wison
Cerra Fyfe Aish

Sturt Hogan Crowden

Ruck Darcy Serong Brayshaw

Int: Mundy Tucker Lobb Conca

Not too many weak links in this team - maybe kicking goals with Crowden and Henry, and then possibly Aish on a wing hasn't totally proved himself yet.

Unlucky: Acres (not sold quite yet) Hughes (been bloody good this year so unlucky) Duman (Good this year so unlucky) Shultz, Cox, Switta (Crowden just pips him for the pressure forward) Frederick. Cox (the fact I couldn't fit him in shows how strong we are in my opinion)

Purely from a Freo supporter’s perspective, it’s a bloody good side!

We’re making progress when you wince at some of the names left out - while having no issues with 22 selected.

Nice job.

First time in years there aren't glaring weakspots on any line there. Exciting stuff.

Selwood ducks or shrugs for half of his "contested possessions".
Cunnington thinks being hard is gut punching blokes off the ball.
Robinson I agree should be in the poll.
Martin isn't hard. Not a noted tackler and most of his commentary jizzing is from work on the outside or forward.

Mitch in a league of his own though.

How the **** is Dusty even considered for that?

Jack Viney should be on it. Him getting up after almost being decapitated by Hughes' leg was pretty good. Actually Hughes probably a decent consideration to include as well.

Crowden's omission is unforgivable.

It's going to be a good debate around Hamling and Cox, and potentially other options. For me, injury aside, Hamling in front because of his versatility.

I'm also struggling with Conca out. He has had some terrific games locking out some dangerous small/medium forwards, an area we have struggled with.

Henry is exactly the type of player we need forward and I hope he has the pre-season required to provide the kind of production we're expecting.

Here's my go. Henry will need to win a spot from either Freddy or Schultz. We suck at F50 tackles so Schultz is a best 22 player for now.

Pearce will need to earn his spot back unfortunately as I only had one spot between him and Hamling. Hill is depth next year I reckon.

Delicious. Ryan will be a different player once he’s allowed to peel off or spare man.

I like you best 22 and don't disagree.

Amazing that Hughes, Conca, Hill, and Cox are not best 22.

Bewley, Duman, Switta, Crowden, and Frederick are great depth players.

Where do we fit our first round pick?

I seriously wanted to fit Conca into there but I just rate all those guys higher than him 😂

At this point I would have Cox ahead of Hamling.
