With 18 teams in the competition, talk about over representation.

Rough 5th
Breust 9th
Gunston 11th
Burgoyne 17th
Wingard 22nd

Just think, if Cyril stayed on we'd have 6 of them. Franklin being a Hawk for most of those goals too.

That being said, it does make our offensive woes this year seem even more confusing. Five blokes who are amongst the elite goal kickers in the league.

So much potential for improvement there, despite the fact that Burgoyne is in there more by weight of games than anything.

Not really too confusing, Burgers is on the list because he's been playing for the last 30 years, Rough has been great but close to retirement (whether it's this year or next), Gunners is suffering from the yips and Wingers is still to get up to full speed. That just leaves Breust and I think he's still got a few niggles.

This will sort itself out as the season gets on.

3 is still more than any other club besides Richmond and Geelong.
