another emerging Roo could also be pushing for a call-up.

“Little Jack Mahony … he’s been catching my eye over the last few weeks,” Simpkin commented.

“His cleanness around the forward line and his attack on the ball’s been really good.”

Mahony enjoyed a taste of senior football in the pre-season, and is making all posts a winner on the track.

A mid season start could see Mahony in and really rip it up.

Mason Wood just cant seem to get a gig.
Not sure hes on Shaw's Xmas card list at the moment
l'm thinking that if he does get a go it will have to be on the backline....l cant see a spot for him there now after having played there for so long with not much to show for it. The only positive is with Garner going down its 1 less player to compete with...

still being nutted out I believe. Will be hard without top up players...with top up players comes extra risk.
Can’t remember who (maybe somebody chatting with Dwayne Russel?), but a conversation on SEN suggested it may just be 16 Vs 16 for about three quarters.

Actually, I think it was an interview with Higgo.

A games consisting of three quarters? Typical AFL - they can’t even do maths. I for one would look forward to commentary around the tactics used in the second third.

Who for though?

I thought Curtis was doing alright and he’s the closest thing we have to a small forward at the moment.
That's the issue though - we don't have a small forward and we need one.

TT and CT are mid size - mercurial type forwards/mids. They shouldn't be dropped for a small forward.

Kayne masquerades as a small forward but we all know his offensive limitations.

In preseason Mahoney showed a lot of poise for a rookie.

If he did kick 3 and play well in the scratch match the let's bring in him - there are plenty of players that can be dropped - Wood and Ahern to begin with.
