    I think I might wait until I know what the list is before speculating on numbers.

    Yep, certainly hoping #43 is wrong! Through having someone else on the list.

    I'd like to see some of the higher number highly rated players move up the numbers, and the draftees move to the back of the pack.

    We are entering a phase where most of our draftees should be expecting token games for the first year or two only, as at most clubs.

    I thought we did last year, hence my early view on Taranto playing. With the benefit of hindsight I think he was an outlier in terms of ability and maturity though.

    We need more of those outlier types. That’s why I’m happy with trading up the draft order to try and secure an instant best 22 player rather than a bunch of ok players that won’t get games and will move to Carlton.

    I suspect Setterfield and Perryman to get a lot of game time this year

    Agree completely, I suspect we tried to parlay Freo and Carlton to end up with pick three, just didn't work this year.
    If Perryman stays as a back there'll be a lot of competition from Kenners and depending on how we play the talls Bunts I think. I also think Leon picks the best players and then works out where they play to some extent though. Love to see more of him in any case

    The timing of Kennedy and buntines ACL ops means they wouldn’t be available until at least a quarter of the way through the season. Gives Perryman plenty of time to try to make that spot his own along with cumming as his most direct competitor.

    Griff and lids are under a lot of pressure to even be best 22 at this stage meaning that Setterfield and Taranto have very strong cases to become starting best 22.

    Mumford retiring pulls lobb out of the forward line opening up a spot there as well so I can see a fairly different best 22 to this year forming

    :eek:My understandind from an interview with Kenners he was a bout a week behind bunts and they were tracking ok to join the group for the off season, did I misunderstand?
    Rory has been rucking progressively more anyway and plays wing at times. He'll certainly have his hands full as sole ruck and spend a lot less time forward though. If we do opt for Dawson the struture could be similar.

    Dyl Buckley’s old man wore #16 at the Blues.
    Would be a nice touch.

    Reckon Shipley is a solid chance for 25 as he ran around in it in the academy series. Also think Daniel's might be a bit dirty that Bonar grabbed number 10 as he has pretty much always had either 10 or 1 in his jnr days.

    Well Nick Shipley wore 51 when playing NEAFL for us, so it would be symmetry for him to get 15

    Jack Buckley played in Tom Downie’s 44 when he was playing NEAFL for us, so he might just keep that one.

    Dylan Buckley wore 7 at Carlton, so he might just add a 1 to be 17 - but I don’t think he deserves the 17 which has been worn by two fan favourites - besides, rookies usually don’t get low numbers.

    Any chance of a swifty being pulled from left field and one of our established players taking one of the vacant numbers and one of the new boys getting a number not on the list.

    Greene, Williams and TOJ all started in different numbers to the ones they’re wearing today - and of the past players Smith, Adams, Steele, Barrett, Cornes and Pickett all changed numbers.

    Are there any we think might want a new number?

    Perhaps Perryman if he wants a lighter number

    Shipley in 34. Presumably leaves Duckley in 43.
