We could pick Collins, Thompson, Ballard, Hombsch, Lukocius in the same 22. Geelong had one of the best defences of 2019 and played 5 talls down back, especially with Ballard and Lukocius an option to push up to the wings or swing fwd.

Chances are only four of them will be on the field at any given time too, with one rotating off the bench. Both Ballard and Hombsch have the ability to play on smaller medium forwards as well IMO. Not out of the realms of possibility, might depend on who we are playing.

People on here still relying on Thompson.. I thought after 10 years that everyone would know he can only play around half a dozen games

Looking at some of the better opposition forward lines, I don't really think there is much hope of this working well. They'd just be too fast.

Brisbane
Cameron Hipwood Mcinerny
Harbrow Thompson Collins

Rayner MCstay MCcarthy
Ballard Hombsch Lukosius


Collingwood

Elliott Cox Stephenson
Harbrow Thompson Ballard

De Goey Mihocek Thomas
Hombsch Collins Lukosius


Richmond

Castagna Riewoldt Bolton
Harbrow Thompson Ballard

Rioli Lynch Caddy
Lukosius Collins Hombsch

yeah agree it's a tough call coz we dont have too many good small defenders and clearly the mobile forward line figures prominently in the competition. I struggle to see all of hombsch, collins and Thompson playing at the same time if lukosiouis and Ballard are in the side.

Nice one guys.
Mitch seems to have his finger on the pulse with respect to player movement, resigning, trades etc.
Would love if you could ask him about targets for GC trade ins 2020 / Any info on offers Ben King had to move to St Kilda and how much he re-signed for on the coast / his thoughts on Kal Burns + Craig Cameron and our performances in recent trade periods.


My favourite memory
- R7 2011. My first Suns game. I was living ~200m from the Gabba and had been a Lions fan for 15+ years at that stage. Being from the Gold Coast though I had an interest in the suns. With the suns playing well and winning I just found myself cheering for my home town team - been a suns fan ever since. Andrew Krakouer kicked 5 and took a massive hanger, Ash MCgrath kicked 6. Great game!

Jars was our "Lions specialist" Always would put Brisbane to the sword, Then go missing for another half season.

But that first QClash was the first game I saw on TV, Was a cracker.

Top 5 games in chronological order

- The famous win after the siren vs Richmond - Round 16 2012
- First win seen in person vs St. Kilda - Round 1 2013
- Smashing Geelong by 40 points - Round 14 2014
- Smashing Hawthorn by 86 - Round 3 2017
- The desperately needed win vs Sydney - Round 18 2018

Honorable Mentions go mostly to the couple of close wins we had start of last season.

Great. I'll probably hit you up with some possible questions for Cal as it roles around.

Would love if you could ask any of the below:

- Does he think the Suns can draft Will Phillips with pick 1 (if we end up w pick 1) - similar traits to Matt Rowell, Touk Miller, David Swallow, Will Brodie - does it make our midfield too one dimensional? If so, is someone like Elijah Hollands still in the picture for our first pick, even with his ACL injury. (1st preference would be this question)


- Where does he think Jack Lukosius best position is at the moment and in 5 years time?
- What are his thoughts on the level of competition in the NEAFL and the impacts on our ability to develop younger players. Does he think an eastern seaboard reserves competition is viable and would it be beneficial for us?

Do you want to include Elijah Hollands in your Will Phillips question or as a follow up question? Does his acl injury rule him out of pick 1 contention?

More than happy to do that. Because a guy with his attributes is exactly the kind of guy we need.
Anderson+Flanders+Hollands :cool:
