2014 like end of season result would be ideal, win 1 final. Next year we entrench in the top 4 and flag. The business of winning flag is that your 1st flag must be done in one hit. We need some luck with injury but much more so with a gameplan that is built on excellent basics and then finished off with a few superstars leading the way. The 'superstars' in question here will emerge when everything else is sorted out.100%!
That would mean Shaw has gone backwards.We should be cherry ripe for sustained success in 2 or 3 years if we show some nuts and pump serious game time into the likes of Scott, LDU, Simpkin, Ahern, Bonar, Larkey; TT, WW and CZ. Best cluster of young talent in decades. We'll have our share of ups and downs this year IMO as we transition away from a handful of experienced but limited Brad Scott regulars to these guys. I'm tipping the excitement will be palpable this time next year, particularly if we nail the 2020 draft. 9th to 12th for me with a bullet in 2021.
True. However, I’m hoping that Cunnington will have added a string or two to his bow in order to help himself. I first saw signs of him getting a bit more “mobility” into his game against PA in R22. This has to be carried through in 2020. Last season was the first season that he got singled out by the opposition. He didn’t handle it very well because he was a bit of a one trick pony. Cunners ability to shake the tag this season will go a long way towards defining our season. We all know he’s a veritable beast. Now, the beast has to be able to “get on his bike” as well.Protection for Cunners being treated like Seabiscuit......Been pathetic what the umps let em get away with against him, and only him.
Jmac is in leadership group so does that mean he’ll just get games regardless?expectations dependant on selection each week
If we play blokes in form and are ruthless with selection I expect finals
if we carry blokes like Macmillan, Atley etc then we won’t make the 8 again
