Backline is set up for the next 5-8 seasons with Pearce being the oldest at 26. Pearce and Cox have all the makings of an outstanding FB/CHB duo if they can stay healthy. Logue fills the key role of covering both smalls & talls where needed which frees up Luke Ryan to do Luke Ryan things and run the backline. Walker covers the smalls whilst providing dash off halfback and Young is just exceptional (also needs to stay healthy )
Midfield was a strength this season and should only get stronger with the younger generation developing bigger bodies and gaining more experience at this level. Fyfe & Mundy lead the old-guard with Brayshaw, Serong and Cerra hopefully taking that final step. Fredrick and Henry on the wing offers us genuine pace and class that we dreamed the Hills could of been. Through in Walters and Switta to rotate between Wing/HFF & Forward Pocket and that's a variety of problems to throw at any team. Oh and I don't have to mention Darcy do I? He's a monster and only 23.
Forward line, the bane of our existence. Taberner playing true CHF plays to his strengths and gives us a three pronged outlet with himself, Darcy and Fyfe to kick to if we need a contest. He can also rotate with Treacy if the matchup's better or to get one of them into the game. Treacy plays the 2nd tall to Lobb in the Forward Fifty. If they end up giving Lobb then 3rd defender instead, just play him out of the goal square (and don't kick it to his feet/knees FFS). Darcy and Lobb rotates when needed, but that's expected. Schultz as our primary small forward next to who ever is resting out of Switta/Fredrick/Walters/Henry to round it out.
Mundy and Serong start on the bench but honestly switch them with any mid based on form/injury/matchup. Aish covers backline and midfield depth also. Chapman there for Key Defender rotations (also the reason why Cox is fielded over Hamling. If say Lobb or Tabs goes down we can swing him forward, throw Chapman in to the back and reshuffle).
Would love to see Sturt, Crowden or Valente force their way into the team where possible since they've all shown something. Exciting times ahead if we've given a fair run with injuries
