Ando as a forward…..don’t think so
1st he cannot get on the park consistently
2nd when he does he is a really average kick, and under pressure deplorable
3rd no evidence ever of being a goal kicker, none
add Greenwood and Horne who as different types that ultimately play the same position he is unlikely to be getting a game once the team settles down


could be wrong but I think he got dropped last year at some point

Ando played small forward a couple games this year and was able to apply pressure whilst he also snagged a couple goals.

He was good against Carlton but it took him a while to get into the game, sprayed a gettable goal early. His kicking his always been very mixed

Revised Post-Draft:

FB - Turner - McKay - Walker
HB - Ziebell - Corr - Hall
C - Thomas - Simpkin - LMac
FOL - Goldy - LDU - Greenwood
HF - JHF - CCJ - Stephenson
FF - Zurhaar - Souv - Mahoney

IC - Anderson - Powell - Phillips - Bonar

EM - Ford - Perez - Lazzaro - Comben - Polec - Taylor - Scott - Spicer - Bosenavulagi - Goater - Curtis

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.

If we’re running with that backline- god help us.
Slow AF and lacking much rebound outside of hall
Bonar/ziebs need to pick up the third tall and intercept
Put atu, young , Perez or even goater later in the year.

Kicked 6 in a game for Box Hill years ago. Not sure if he was a consistent goal kicker though. And from recollection there were a few gimmes in that 6.

Loving some of these squads. I couldn't do one so many options.
No one has polec in...but I really hope he has a good pre season and slots onto a wing.
Him at or close to his best would make us super damaging.

I think polec has a long way to go before hes in anyone's best 22.

The model is clear. Bide your time. Develop your draft picks. Fill in your needs as you get closer and closer. Win a flag. We're on course.
So no flags for Goldy, Jack or Cunners. Hall might get one tho.

A random Hawks best 22. From a random poster.
I would be surprised if we played 3 key defenders against them.

like this a lot but would swap Lmac & zeebs.

the midfield rotations from the bench, wings and half forward lines are nuts.

If Young plays another game for us, I’d assume everything has gone wrong.

A genuinely terrible footballer, well beyond impostor/fraud status.

Been watching some replays and have to acknowledge I have been a bit harsh on Turner disposal, sort of gets there mostly and you can’t bottle the effort so he is a lock IMO

in the cats game in Tassie, Ford Taylor Scott Atu phiilips and x all looked like newbies half the time

main reason we lost was people trying to see if mahony could outmark Stewart and Blivacs
he couldnt

Assumes Cunnington is unavailable
We must play Comden at CHF if fit. His development is vital to our future
Callum Jones can come off the bench to give Goldy a break or to play forward if we need him
There are 12 players in my 22 who can rotate through the midfield if required
