Its one of them when you are composing a team. Dahl should be dropped for close thats a like for like..dropping him for a mid changes the structure.
If DHouse was a legit FP weapon..like a green..then id wear his recruitment ..but a FP role should be like an entry level for the mids that we will need very soon. Evans , Close ... probably another I cant think off..

I can only hope Tarheny shows enough to demand a FP spot.


The other issue is. ...it seems kicking scores in 'IN"... Kruger or someone as the third tall should be getting a game now... as we have no Rohan or Cameron or Sav. If not now...then when.

Not enough mid time for cc with duncan back unless duncan plays HF which maybe he should do.

Dahl will be out soon but probably for close not CC.
Could you see Duncan's creativity and skill as a HBF?
Close for Dahl makes sense if he is ready.
Watching the Lions a bit in recent years, Daniel Rich has become an excellent HBF.
I could see Duncan in that role.
Tuohy is already a winger or hf.
MOC is tagging/mf.
Leaves Kolo, Stewart, Bews, Hendo, Blicavs as permanent defenders. Henry is a good i/c utility type player.
Atkins- I would play Dunc there.

Who would you select first in this team - Dahlhaus who’s given sfa or Constable who has admittedly endurance issues but can at least win his own footy and impact a game? That’s my point.
Would depend who the other 20/21 players selected are and then select based on team balance requirements - I don't see this as Dahlhaus vs Constable for that last spot or them competing for the same spot as they play different roles

I'm worried that they're putting in Holmes way too quickly, he has what School football and two VFL practice matches before an AFL debut.

With only one tall forward in the team you could argue that we should bring in one of them to maintain structure.

I just don’t get why Dahlhaus retains his spot in front of about 5 other candidates - Constable, Close, Krueger, Jarvis and Jenkins

As a fully fledged member of the"Misfits", the best chance of seeing Kreuger this year would be if they decided to rest/manage/omit someone like Henderson, Blicavs or Kolodjashnij

Jenkins or maybe Jarvis would seem to have been the taller forward options this week
