Markov looked a class above late last year in the ressies. Broad offers way more defensively but way less offensively. I have always like Broad for his ability to get to contests and compete, a bit like Grimes, but he will need to add a fair bit more offensively to keep his place. Grimes did it last season, so why not Broad. His spot is the shakiest I think.Markov is the obvious one , needs to play himself into the side though ,,,,Bolton or naish are a couple that may come hard for a HBF role , we ll soon see ,, they potentially offer more in offence rebounding from 50 if that’s what we re looking for
If there are injuries or form losses, Markov looks well ready to play. He showed a heap in his first year, in a year when we played very poorly,'17 was ruined by injury and lack of opportunity. He could also play wing. Menadue is another who can play both positions, and he has to cut it this year or you would think goodbye.
