Throwing a hypothetical out there. Just say we were hit with the usual number of injuries by about round 8 and the following players were all out injured at the same time :-
Thompson
Collins
Hanley
Ainsworth
Witts
Rankine
Day
King
Hombsch
Anderson
Powell
&
Brodie

What would your best 22 minus these blokes be?

I struggle with defence. Could put there Joyce, McLennan, Murdoch. Anyway, I give opportunity to Sharp, let's see what he can do on the wing and put Weller back.

I’m trying a bit of reverse psychology on the footy gods. :p
Surely we’re due for a better injury run, and as Jirik13 and RowellAnderson12 demonstrated above, that’s still probably a better side than the ones we fielded in the second half of last season. Miles isn’t listed in either of those teams and he was seventh in the B&F, and we still aren’t forced into playing Dawson and Heron. Agree the backline looks vulnerable so we really need both Rory and Collins to keep on the park.

Ballard and Burgess can play key back, Day can swing back as well. Hombsch to, we just don’t have decent small/medium defenders

True that. Although we’re scraping the bottom of the barrel if Ballard and Burgess have to play on Hawkins, Lynch, Kennedy, Cameron etc. Really need McLovin to come on, and Dawson to jump up a couple of levels. Budarick might be one but probably not 2020.

Missed out on Will Gould by a bees dick!

Our midfield and forward line is pretty stacked for talent now, so from here on the list can focus on the backline. Give us three more years of crafty drafting and we should be strong on each line.

Players like Mitch Riordan, Budarick, Towey, McLovin will need to be fast-tracked as defenders. They all appear to move well and have pace.

I prefer Sharp and did before the selection too. Check my posts.

I rate Sharp highly though and he fills a HUGE need.

Excuse the interruption, but as a Gold Coaster and a Suns watcher, it seems you guys are really underrating Touk Miller's presence in your 22. I get that before long he may be overtaken, but has hardly missed a game for you since he debuted (100 out of possible 110); is your VC and still just 23; took out your 2km TT in November; and has valuable leadership for the young blokes - something your side is short in.

He may not be a perfect footballer, but is trending the right way. He aint 'back in the pack' just yet.

At least to start the year, he sits comfortably in any side you put out on the park.

Agree. Touk is the first person on our list who would willingly sacrifice his own game for the team and do it well (eg see QClash v Zorko). It’s not always about who can kick best or who gets the most disposals.

Granted, preseason is usually about hype, which makes picking the untried draftees and new recruits 'sexy'. I'm not a betting man but would put a 20 on Touk being there in R1.

most best 22's have Rowell, ellis and Greenwood as the only new players.
I reckon they'll be getting a game

Pretty average effort I'd say. No Collins, players out of position (Harbrow on HB flank), Ballard at CHB, Luko stuck in a back pocket and Joyce just for starters. The pre season matches will clarify much of this once the new players are given a chance to perform.....but I know nothing really. Just have to wait and see.

I think he was pretty close to the 22 that most of us have suggested.
He went for Joyce over Collins which is the only really POD.

Whether someone is named on the HBF means squat so wouldn't take any notice of that, more about the makeup of the 22.
