Phillips Anderson Lazz Bonar/Walker/Atu/Perez

Cunners, Sleevo, Powell after the first month of footy. Cunners gets looked after due to age and godliness, Sleevo owes some bank according to Noble so make him ineligible for selection until he’s running a PB in whatever run test they desire, Powell looking after that groin. It’s a long bloody season and that’s what depth is for.

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.
There is no way this team is a bottom 4 team next year. Can’t wait!

With Cunners most likely now unavailable for awhile , l would change Cunners with Greenwood and replace Greenwood with Anderson and bring in Young for Anderson. With Tarrant leaving it makes the backline options open up a bit more..

Jed remains a big watch this space for mine. As soon as WP is ready to take that pure inside mid role, coupled with Mahoney & JHF as small forwards. It’ll be interesting to monitor.

I'm a fan for the most part. Bonar/Walker interchangeable depending on opposition talls. Mahoney over Anderson a tough call. Perez a big call considering his limited exposure but I like what I saw of him in 2020. Do you think that 3 talls plus Zurharr might be a bit too tall up forward?

The 22 is tough

would love to switch Atu for Turner
turners disposal is now in the full spotlights of Posters since serial whipping boys Atley and Dumont have been moved on

Goater is going to put a nice level of pressure on Bonar, Atu & Perez.
Curtis is going to put a nice level of pressure on JHF, Ford & Mahoney.

I like those backs. There is plenty of experience there and after a year without relying on Tarrant they will hopefully come together even more.

Walker stands out as a possible weak link, but he's still only 29, he's very durable and potentially has a few years of good footy ahead of him and hopefully improvement.

He is a stop gap, no doubt. However with Corr in the side, we are less reliant on him.

That Senior 22 is a 10+ win team if they can stay fit.

Three 200cm forwards may be a bit too much however. Comben and CCJ competing for one spot with a smaller player such as Taylor taking that extra spot.

There are still question marks for mine over Mahony as being a Best 22 mainstay.

The depth of that midfield is ******* ludicrous.
