Pleasantly surprised by the majority of posts so far.

For those playing at home, the correct and only way to display a team is:

B
HB
C
HF
F
R
I

... not this:

B
HB
C
R
HF
F
I

... and if anybody even thinks about doing this, I think a perma ban is in order:

F
HF
C
HB
B
R
I
First names and punctuation is also appreciated

I'd say ours will most likely be the premiership 22. Ideally Coleman-Jones comes in after his suspension to play KPF/2nd ruck and allow Jack some freedom.

FB: Vlaustin....Grimes....Baker
HB:Broad........Balta......Astbury
C: McIntosh....Cotchin....Pickett
HF:Lambert....Lynch.....Bolton
FF:Riewoldt.......CCJ.....Edwards
R:Nankervis.....Dusty....Prestia
I/C: Castagna...Graham....Rioli...Houli

Would love for Stack to step up and cement a spot.

Unchanged from the GF, Caddy pretty stiff but have Pickett in over him atm

I hope it happens tbh
While it'd be a nice bit of trivia I'm not sure it's necessarily a good thing. Hopefully a few of Jack Ross, RCD, Dow, Stack, Coleman-Jones etc can force their way in early. Even Caddy.

I expect rd 1 to be something like this with Sicily out:

FB: Frost - Hartigan - Hardwick
HB: Day - McEvoy - Impey
C: Phillips - O'Meara - Scully
HF: Wingard - Lewis - Gunston
FF: Breust - Patton - Burgoyne
R: Ceglar - Mitchell - Worpel
IC: Cousins - Scrimshaw - O'Brien - Shiels

Clarko tends to go tall and conservative at the beginning of seasons iirc

Yeah that's right. Same 22 has never been named again. We had the chance in 2018 but it never eventuated. Gotta be a fair chance next year though.

Depending on who has the big preseasons theres a few who could break in, assuming everyone is fit and suspensions are served this would be my team:

B: Vlastuin Astbury Grimes
HB: Short Balta Baker
C: Edwards Cotchin Bolton
HF: Martin Riewoldt Lambert
FF: Rioli Lynch Castagna
R: Nankervis Prestia Ross
INT: Collier-Dawkins Broad Houli Graham

EMG: Macintosh Coleman-Jones Stack

Guys like Pickett, Caddy, Chol are stiff to be in the VFL but can't fit everyone in if the list is healthy. Soldo out for the season otherwise he's probably in my side.

That's a top 8 side right there, and we'll be challenging hard for it too.

You reckon? Pretty average forward line. Defence is good if they can stay on the park. Midfield is talented but young/inexperienced.

Can't see Freo making the 8 just yet.

F Tippa - Wright - Stringer
R Draper - Parish - Shiel
Int. Laverde - Heppell - Caldwell - Hind
Emg. Clarke - Ham - Guelfi - Hooker

Plus 3 top 10 picks, I’d hope at least one is playing round 1.
Ouch, that half forward line seriously needs some work.
 

Heaps of fun

What is your club’s best 22 for 2021?

My first crack at the Eagles.


FB: Hurn Barrass Sheppard
HB: Cole McGovern Witherden
C: Duggan Kelly Gaff
HF: Cripps Darling Ryan
FF: Langdon Kennedy Allen

R: Naitanui Yeo Shuey

I: Nelson Redden Sheed Waterman

E: Williams Cameron Hutchings Rotham
Bloody good team. Really hoping we finally get a Tigers / Eagles GF next year.

Would seem a pity not to have the 2 best teams of recent times play each other on the big stage.

I’m not so sure we are definitely second best. Only one prelim in the last 4 years I think?

I’m sick of the tigers and hope it’s some “new” teams (or us) in the GF this year.

We were so close in 2018. Tigers stuffed it by falling over to Collingwood in the Prelim.

That loss to Hawks in 2019 at home was brutal for Eagles. Never really recovered.

2020 was COVID and HUBs and all sorts of nonsense.

2021 must be the year.
