It will be interesting to see what Shaw can get out of these two blokes - my hunch is that both will play a chunk in the 2's. It might not be a "breakout" per se, but my guess is that we'll be seeing the Bonar pickup as a masterstroke by mid-season.Turner and McDonald should be entering their prime
Both to excel next year
Ahern to have a breakout year as our hbf distributer
Bailey ahead of Dumont?Maj, Wood and Scott for me.
I would absolutely love for Shaw to swing Wood down back on to a hbf. Simplify the game for him like we did for Ahern and watch him flourish.

That's an extremely explosive backline and I reckon Rhyce would love the idea of 5x potential attacking options on the field at once. Would keep opposition forwards on their toes all game.
I also firmly believe if Bailey gets a good run at it this year he will lock up the wing spot opposite Polec. Lots to be excited about next season.
If these three all had breakouts then we are top 4!Hall, Tyson, Wood
Larkey was my 2019 breakout guy. I think I hit the mark.I'm interested to see what you guys think as I believe Nick Larkey will have a breakout year, kicking 40 goals for the season, while Luke McDonald will gain his confidence back and have a decent year compared to previous years.
My hope is by the end of the season he has won the wing spot over Trent, I just see a bit more upside with Bailey.Bailey ahead of Dumont?
I reckon Atts has never really backed himself, seems to ignore his first instincts and then gets into trouble and goes a poor option to often. having said that he is a lot more reliable than he was say 2 years ago. i tend to agree he is never going to be a breakout player but definitely has the tools to be a highly regarded journeyman. Pittard showed last season what someone with his skillset can aspire to.Shaun Atley
The ultimate Groundhog player. Been waiting for a breakout season and it hasn’t come and now probably won’t. Still not sure of his best role. Tons of speed but we only see him in pieces. Just doesn’t hurt teams enough. Durable and consistent but he seems to have so much more. We need outside run and his best but he seems comfortable with where he is at. The key for Rhys and co is to get him to the next level either by increasing his possessions or his hurt factor.
