Every pre-season we have a thread like this so may as well start now.

Which three players do you see as major developers in 2019? Box Hill and Training watchers will likely be ten million times ahead of me on this.

I’m going to say
- CJ
- Mitchell Lewis
- Hanrahan

Wouldn’t be surprised if Rough will spend way more time with ML, now he is relieved of captaincy duties. This can only be a good thing. Roughy will want ML to be good enough to step into his boots and I suspect this will be something he will focus on in a big way.

Sammy Mitchell will be great for the naturally talented Hanrahan and CJ. I’m hoping they both explode next year.

How about youse?

Look out for the 3rd-4th year players to improve or push for a best 22 spot like Cousins, Glass, Miles, Pittonet, Morrison, Lewis etc is where I see the improvement coming from.

Cousins is the one who stands out the most as the likely player who will be the Hawks most improved player for 2019.

So many to choose from but the one for me is Nash; I'm really looking forward to seeing his development now with senior football under his belt and some great signs shown in those matches.

Athletic ability and determination are clearly evident, add in improved football smarts and it could be something very exciting

No youf my arse. This thread is confusing me (in a good way)

I have forgotten about Morrison and I am quite interested in what Sammy M does with him

Sign me up to the CJ bandwagon
Looks a real specimen in the pre-season video and seemed to have a real good attitude.
Showed some freakish skills in the VFL grand final, and also in some of the other video's have seen of him.

I will be disappointed if he doesnt get some games in the one's this year....notwithstanding injury of course

Cj’s decision making and skill are way to poor atm, still think he’s awhile off. The one that’s impressed me is Dylan Moore. His last few weeks put him up there with hanrahan, and because of his work rate and endurance I think he’ll push ahead of hanrahan in the pecking order.

Moore is the most likely. This kid is an animal for the contest and has pretty handy skills. Hard to see him not making it.

The spotlight is firmly on Lewis. Bulking up is what he needed to do, so expect him to prove he is AFL class.

Keen to see more of what the jones boy can produce for boxhill.

If worps and harry can take another step up it would go a long way to filling out our midfield depth and making us a contender again.
