You can’t play Grundy Cox and Cameron. Grundy doesn’t need a second ruckman off the bench just a forward who can compete for 5 minutes a quarter
Yep. If they were going to go with an extra tall up forward, it'd have to be Reid. Possible though, but I don't see it happening regularly.

If you're referring to Hine mentioning something about flexibility, he'd say that if they drafted a labrador, which they may have to if Cox's eye has any complications.

Still stand by my best top 3 pre season picks for 2019.

1 De Goey
2. Moore
3. Grundy.

Why Grundy 3rd?

If we're going to be a threat next yr.. his ratings need to drop. Concentrate on his tap work a lot more. Play more of that Mcevoy type of roll.. not that I've watched him much.. but float around the ground and get in good spots to grab the pill.. enough of the kamikaze follow up work followed by a hack to know where in particular. Leave that sh*t to the more nimble skilled types to get in there and create something more worthwhile.

That's a good mix, often this year I found that we're lacking in a contested defensive mid. Richmond has Graham, West Coast has Yeo, GWS has De Boar etc.

However, we probably would want all of Langdon, Crisp, Howe down back, none of them are strong shut down players on speedy opposition small forwards.

The basis of playing Maynard mid is having a fit Greenwood down back.
Could we try Cal Brown down back like we did with Greenwood?
Quick small forwards have always caused us trouble

Not including Mihocek is a joke especially when you have random draftees and c.brown and Wilson lol

Greenwood was never a forward and played half back lots at North.
Better comparison for moving a C.Brown type to defense would be someone like Liam Baker at Richmond

Sidebottom, Mihocek, Stephenson
DeGoey, Cox, Elliot

Beams, Hoskin-Elliot, Mayne, Unknown

Quick points;
- That backline I think is/will be the best back 6 in the comp if we get 18+ games out of them all playing together. There is run and drive, and a nice balance between intercepting and lock down play.

- Scharenberg over Phillips on a wing for mine (and a few others on here agree), has more tricks that Phillips, and in a side riddled with inaccurate kickers, I would prefer to see someone like Shaz using the ball higher up the ground compared to Phillips who's kicking lets him down to often

-Sier in next to Adams, we played much better with a bigger body next to Adams (Wills) but I think Sier offers more than Rupert. Needs to be on though as if Wills stays he will be banging the door down in the VFL to replace Sier

-The forward line is explosive and damaging. Leave the big American deep and allow him the chance to run and leap at the footy, nothing annoys me more than Cox taking a mark up the ground and turning around and having nothing to kick too. Lacks both the running power to get back inside 50 quickly, and the penetration on his kicking to hit up a leading target. Back Mihocek, Grundy and even Shaz (another plus of him being up the ground) to mark outside 50 and kick it into Cox, or a leading DeGoey or Elliot.

- Excited to see Beams and WHE return to what we know they can do, and I like the role Mayne does out on a wing and drifting across the flanks as and when he is required to (ala the late goal against GWS). The last bench spot is up for grabs for mine, Quaynor/Noble as small running defenders could appeal, Cameron as another tall mobile target, or maybe a youngster will put their hands up in the pre-season for it. Phillips/C.Brown/Varcoe/Thomas amongst others would be in contention for this spot.

I think Phillips and Thomas are fixtures of the team.

But Varcoe, Brown, T Brown, Quaynor/Noble, Broomhead, Cameron are all possibilities -- I'd have them in that order, roughly.
