Benefits of having multi role players in the side.
Heck even cunnington rotates forward now.
Relegate polec to the VFL.

Post Greenwood signing:

FB - Walker - McKay - Turner
HB - Ziebell - Corr - Hall
C - Powell - Simpkin - LMac
FOL - Goldy - Cunners - LDU
HF - Stepho - CCJ - Thomas
FF - Zurhaar - Souv - JHF

IC - Mahoney - Anderson - Greenwood - Phillips

EM - Bonar - Perez - Taylor - Scott - Bosenavulagi - Comben - Laz - Ford - Pick 20 - Xerri

Initial thoughts:
- Our midfield and forward line is stacked with talent
- Our back 6 needs an injection of youth
- Anderson & Phillips the two that suffer most from Greenwood signing, really hope Will has a monster preseason and makes the decision difficult

Whom out of this group other than McDonald do you think can play back? Most can play forward which is great but we need more class in the back half, but not sure any of the are suite?
cheers

Maybe Powell or Laz. We’ve got Hall, Hayden, Turner, Perez, JZ, Bonar, Atu and Young all vying for 4 or 5 spots.

Decent back up options in most positions with perhaps key back a little skinny.

Not loving the interchange. So little outside run. To me it’s trying to fit in players rather than build a team.

Needs less grunt more run

Greenwood, delisted by Gold Coast, 29, is going to come in and displace one of the members of the best young midfield group in the Comp in a rebuilding team.

Even if Cunnington retires, we don’t need another old list clogger.
He is far from a list clogger... if the kids are good enough they will keep him out of the team simple. If not he will push the kids to continue to improve and to force their way in... we don't gift spots... to be successful you need to be able to interchange at least the top 30....

That forward half is infinitely more aerially imposing with Comben and CCJ added to it compared to Larkey almost the lone hand for the last 18 months.

Comben can play genuine CHF, pushing up to half back and CCJ can swap with Goldy, parked deep.

Thomas and JHF to rotate between the middle and half forward. An unbelievable prospect/thought.

Powell/LDU/Simpkin/Phillips/Cunners/Greenwood the center square rotation group with Thomas/JHF bobbing in there also at times.

Good side. Anderson can play a bit of a pressure role fwd and greenwood as a 3rd tall if required.

Or we need to do some tagging ourselves.

I'd be shocked if he isn't sitting on the likes of Bont, Cripps, Fyfe etc in all the game we encounter the best big bodied midfielders.
Of course, it just gives us the upper hand when dealing with a tag.

nah just put him on Caleb Daniel sized players for the rest of his career Mr. obvious :stern look.
