Sign of the times when it’s a struggle to name your best 22 without leaving quality out of the side


Broad - Rance - Grimes
Vlastuin - Astbury - Houli
Edwards - Martin - Lambert
Higgins - Lynch - Rioli
Butler - Riewoldt - Baker/Weller
Nankervis - Cotchin - Prestia
Ross- Balta - Short - Graham


(KMac in if Lynch injured..not like for like but doesn’t Need to be)

Our defensive group is solid.
Rance, Astbury, Grimes, Houli, Vlaustin, Short.
Houli has stepped up.
It means players like Markov and Menadue would have to wait.
Midfielders would be Cotchin, Martin, Prestia, Lambert, Graham and Edwards (as a mid-forward).
Essential forwards (excluding injury) would be Riewoldt, Butler, Rioli, Weller, Balta.
Leaves five. Nank, Soldo, then Broad, KMc, Ross.

Ins for R1 from PF. = Lynch for Caddy, Butts for Georgie, Balta for Grigg, Ellis for Conca. No one stiff to miss out, although Baker and Markov not far off.

Sadly unless Bachar can get back to something close to his 2017 GF form, I can see him being eased out of the side this year. Could be age slowing the reflexes but while he still gets to many contests, his disposal has become steadily less reliable. I saw a lot of that in our Prelim Final exit against Collingwood (albeit he was not alone in this) and he turned it over too often in the recent game against Hawthorn. The conservative position is to keep him in the side until someone like Markov steps up to claim the position but I'd prefer us to blood a replacement now rather than wait for the inevitable.

Listening to Balme on SEN would suggest Mav Weller is a lock. Sounds like the club love him already and what he provides.

Good forward pressure he crunches blokes pretty good infront of the sticks allows Rioli Butler Higgins to run through mid and wing

Shame caddy is injured but round 1

VLASTIN RANCE GRIMES
BROAD ASTBURY SHORT
LAMBERT MARTIN EDWARDS
BUTLER RIEWOLTD RIOLI
WELLER LYNCH HIGGINS
NANKERVIS PRESTIA COTCHIN
ELLIS GRAHAM HOULI BALTA

EMERG: MCINTOSH SOLDO MARKOV BAKER

Be interesting to see what happens when Caddy and George are fit they are easily best 22 most likely Graham Butler and Ellis under the most pressure
