I think Teague would be a big fan of Fisher.Yeh, FWIW I think Fisher is a clear stand-out to make it 6 locked too. As per my vote. But he's the first one an argument could be made against, the first 5 are all picking themselves. Stocker, Dow, Newnes, LOB, even Kennedy will have to put their cases forward.
Spot on.I don't think we'll have a forward 7. There'll be 4 permanent forwards, and the rest will rotate.
Jack needs to be able to support Cripps in the midfield if he plays, and Stocker needs to be able to be a solid forward target if he plays. Kennedy is the backup after those two, and also for McGovern.
Who plays wing?Cripps, Walsh, Setterfield, Curnow, Murphy, Gibbons and Fisher.
This is based on what I've seen at training thus far. Planning to make it down this Friday to further assess.
Just don't think Stocker's fitness is there yet. Dow with a fresh haircut may surprise. Newnes needs more time to gel with the group and express himself on the track.
Our starting 5 & 1st bench spot are locked with Cripps (99%), Walsh (99%), Curnow (97%), Setterfield (97%), Murphy (96%) and Fisher (70%) - no surprises there.I opted for ...
Consensus to now with around 110 votes in has ... Fisher in a comfortable sixth spot (1st midfield bench rotation) and Newnes seventh (2nd midfield bench rotation) shading out Gibbons, with Dow and O’Brien further back, and Stocker the one other in double figures.
I'm picking Ed and Setters ahead of Newnes, Stocker & Gibbo. Think Newnes & Gibbo will be around the mark, Stocker might need to improve his tank a bit more before he starts pushing for 'best 22' selection (will obviously still get games, like many, due to injury/suspension/etc)If we are picking players purely to win matches in 2020, I'm picking Ed ahead of Setters, Newnes, Stocker and Gibbo.
And it's not even close, IMHO.
