Final team! Snortin Eagles ready for duty

Leadership across the board, with 7 current or former captains lining up (Walker, Boak, M. Murphy, Hurn, Geary, Beams, Davis).

The team is dominated by this years Grand Final, with 7 Eagles premiership players, and 4 from Collingwood's gallant side.

The midfield has class, the backline is rock solid and the forward line posses a good mix of exciting smalls and a key target in Tex.

Nic Nat to return in the 2nd half of the year will be the x factor of the side.

Like the team. Think the backline is very well balanced and would work great as a collective. Midfield has a nice mixture of grunt and class, and Gawn will give my team absolute silver service. Liking the forward line too, with Gunston as the main target and guys like Cripps and Fantasia not only mopping up at his feet, but applying the pressure as well. My reserves are a bit unheralded, but I've gone for players that I think make an impact this year for their teams, as well as a couple of riskier selections

I like my team. The Midfield is a standout with massive depth and flexibility. Dangerfield, Treloar, Cotchin, Zaharakis, Crouch, Masten, Powell-Pepper and Armitage. Plus with Ryder if fit they will receive first look at it 90% of the time. The forward line isn't strong. However the flexibility of the side means Dangerfield and Ryder can move forward and plenty of goal kicking mids in the side to provide the shortfall. The defense is sound with a good mix of experience and youth. Overall Id rate my team as very hard to beat.

I need to take 1 or 2 more to replace Docherty and maybe daw
neither will play this year (i'd be shocked, Docherty won't but i don't know much about broken hips for footy players)

go for it, delist and select in the rookie draft (i.e., now)

I like my team, I think my defence is a real strength. Two young KPDs who have already shown that they will be class (Andrews would've been very close to AA if Cameron didn't KO them, which is why I have them both ;)). Jetta is the best shutdown small defender in the comp, Aliir Aliir will intercept attacks with McKenna providing run and dash, and Sicily also doing his job.

The midfield may not be star-studded but it's very consistent. Cripps is a best, Redden is an unheralded hero, Devon can rotate between rover and HF, with the Seed and Isaac providing dash and booming kicks on the wings.

Forward line may not be great on paper but I think it can work together.

Ok.
So now everyone rank your top 8 teams that you think would do best for the 2019 season if our teams were placed in an actual competition.

PM me and we'll do the whole top 4 knockout finals thread thingy we always do.

The Burton Brains Final Squad

B Jarrad McVeigh - Tom Clurey - Dylan Grimes
HB Nathan Wilson - Rory Thompson - Daniel Rich
C Touk Miller - Luke Parker - Tom Phillips
HF Robbie Gray - Lance Franklin - Kane Lambert
F Daniel McStay - Rory Lobb - Dan Butler
R Rhys Stanley - Josh P. Kennedy - Jack Steven

I Jarrod Berry - Caleb Daniel - Jarryd Lyons - Marley Williams

E Hunter Clark - Lochie O'Brien - Nathan Brown - Callum Ah Chee
E Sam J. Reid - Nathan Broad - Ben Long - Sam Wright

I'd say that's a pretty strong squad.

Deep midfield. Luke Parker, Josh Kennedy, Jack Steven, Robbie Gray, Tom Phillips, Touk Miller, Kane Lambert, Jarrod Berry, Jarryd Lyons, Caleb Daniel. That's 10 very strong ball winners and distributors with the ability to rotate through a number of positions.

Forward line includes the best key forward of this generation, Lance Franklin. Plus Robbie Gray spending half his time there, Dan Butler a capable small forward, Lobb as a tall contested mark and some support acts.

Defence is a strong mix of rebound and lockdown. Rory Thompson and Dylan Grimes at their best are guns. Wilson and Rich provide lots of speed and penetration off half back. McVeigh is a general and leader down there, with Clurey a decent support act. Williams on the bench as a small defender.

Ruck is a tag team of Stanley and Lobb, both rotating forward.

Depth includes cover for most positions. Young guns Clark and O'Brien ready to step up into the midfield. Brown as a tall defensive cover. Reid as forward cover. Ah Chee cover for the half back line, Ben Long cover for the half forward line, and a couple of extra defenders in Broad and Wright who will play plenty of games

Team

F Charlie Cameron | Peter Wright | Josh Thomas
HF Christian Petracca | Charlie Curnow | Toby Greene
C Adam Cerra | Oliver Florent | Tom Scully
HB Luke McDonald | Caleb Marchbank | Zach Tuohy
B Kade Kolodjashnij | Jack Henry | Nick Haynes
1R Callum Sinclair | Dustin Martin | Jack Viney
INT Cameron Rayner | Paddy Dow | Alex Fasolo | Jeremy Finlayson
EMERG Allen Christensen | Brandon Matera | Bailey Dale | Taylor Duryea | Sam Frost | Jackson Thurlow | Kieran Jack | Matthew Broadbent

Forward line will be pretty damn good I reckon. Providing Greene keeps himself away from the tribunal.

Some high points in the midfield but probably a bit light on. Would have liked one more quality mid. Success depends on Scully's injury holding up, one of Cerra or Dow having a good second season, Petracca finally getting his tank to the level he can play decent minutes there

Defence is good and plenty of cover.

Depth on bench is good though would have liked a back up ruckman. Almost took Zac Smith or Darcy Fort in Round 30 but wasn't convinced that they would play at all.

The full list for The Crystal Gems

F: Walters - McDonald - Papley

HF: Fisher - Lukosius - Hopper

C: Hunter - Steele - Milera

HB: Maynard - May - Witherden

B: Gardiner - Cordy - Webster

Foll: Bellchambers - Fyfe - Heeney

Interchange: SPS - Hutchings/Guthrie/Howe/McKernan/Spargo

Emergencies from David Myers, Chayce Jones, LDU, Kaiden Brand, Sam Draper, and Matthew Flynn.

I could use another backup ruck that will get more regular game time, but apart from that I am pretty happy with the strength of my depth, especially through the midfield, and I can't quite decide on a definite best 22. Before it was hit with injuries I thought my team last year was underrated, but I like this years team more. I tried to put a focus on players who were potentially ready for a breakout season, and/or make the best 22 under 22 team. I only have 2 crows players this year, which is a record low for me, and unfortunately, this means I can only get a maximum of 10 bonus points when we win the premiership. On the bright side, I managed to avoid picking any port players and that's always good.

FINAL TEAM -

THE CHAYCE IS ON


FB: Darcy Moore / Dan Rampe / Jarmen Impey
HB: Jayden Short / Michael Hurley (c) / Rory Laird
C: Aaron Hall / Tom Rockliff / Sam Walsh
HF: Sam Menegola / Sam Weidemen / Jake Stringer
FF: Gary Rohan / Ben Brown / Ben Ronke
FOLL: Ben McEvoy / Matt Crouch (vc) / Dan Hannabery

INT:
Blake Acres / Jack Graham / Jack Bowes / Jordan Roughead

EMERG:
Jason Castagna / Darcy Tucker / Cam Ellis-Yolmen / Kamdyn McIntosh
Nick Coffield / Nakia Cockatoo / Tom McCartin / Jordan Clark



I'm very happy with the way my team has finished up. (humble)

A backline mix of Hurley, Rampe, Moore, Laird, Short and Impey is incredibly strong in my eyes, throw in depth players Roughead, McIntosh, Tucker, Coffield and the Cats rookie Clark (Who I think will play round 1) and I think i'll have one of if not the strongest backline's in this years draft game.

In the forward line, we have the probable Coleman medalist in Ben Brown, add to that Stringer, Rohan, Ronke who will all have a point to prove this year and play in likely finals sides plus young gun Weidemen who I think will break out in 2019, and midfield bull Menegola who can rotate FWD/MID. Depth players Acres, Graham, Castagna, Cockatoo and McCartin to support.

I know someone commented that the midfield lacked depth BUT, McEvoy is a monster, Crouch is an absolute beast (and a lock for AA and Blight medal if he plays every week) and Hanneberry/Rockliff will be better than last season - both are multiple AA and top 3 brownlow members in not too distant past. Add in Aaron hall who I think will suit the Kanga's well and the likely rising star winner Walsh (will play every game in the blues midfield in 2019 barring injury) and depth players CEY, Bowes and FWD/MID's Menegola, Graham, Acres and even Stringer and I think the midfield has ended up quite strong (albeit a couple risky.)

Mixture of old and young with two genuine rising star chances in Sam Walsh and Jordan Clark.

I've been playing this game 3 years now and I think this is my strongest team by far! (and I won last year :) ) - Again (humble)

Good luck all, Great effort this year, No one has built a glaringly bad team and there wasn't really any awful (Billy Longer in the top 40 picks) this year AND no hissy fits - So great effort.

Special credit to the FAITH - you do a great job mate.

Go Crows.

Your team is upside down. But other than that... Not bad :)
