I see this is how it will be Rd 1.

B: Ridley Stewart Kelly
HB: Redman Laverde Hind
C: Langford Parish Cox/Durham (Preseason form depending)
HF: Stringer Jones Snelling
F: Walla Francis Wright
R: Draper Merrett Shiel
I: McGrath Heppell Smith Caldwell
Sub: Guelfi/Durham

I know that it will be pointed out that it isn't 22 and I have Perkins probably starting VFL to get his midfield minutes/craft up.

Francis, Cutler, Hurley?, Bryan, Zerk, Ham, Phillips, Guelfi, Clarke?, Waterman… not bad for depth.

Where the heck is Snelling though 🤔🤔🤔

Ridiculous that BJ left Snelling out - he's definitely best 22 unless injured...
Speaking of injured - I don't think we can realistically include Hurley in best 22 calculations for round 1 next year - or possibly ever given his major injury issue and (sadly) likelihood of never getting on the park at senior level again

A year ago we would've been dropping Parish the not-the-best small forward. But since he's a midfielder now he's not in that conversation anymore...


Could also have been Hill > Jones > Langford > Cox > out

I feel like we need an extra tall/medium forward, likely Francis, and normally I'd say Smith is the one to make way but he hasn't played reserves at all here.
