    Everyone needs a whipping boy. With Hartung gone, there was a position vacant.

    Frawley is player 1. As for KE% that stat is a lot harder to come by unless you're in the top 10

    Schoenmakers would take up that mantle again I would guess.

    Harsh for a premiership player to be a whipping boy, but I supposed Hilly copped it at times.

    My bet would usually be Miles/Willsmore, but doubt they'll get anywhere near seniors to hear the whipping. Perhaps it will be Impey unless he shows something early.

    Hilly copped it more than just at times... The amount of hate he copped was ridiculous, i know it's easy to say looking back now he is gone and has jut won a B&F at his new club but i still can't believe the amount of hate he got. I can't imagine how tough it must have been for the Hilly haters to try and watch Hartung play footy last season...

    yea Harry pretty much played wing and ran straight lines even through the centre at stages, Henderson was one of the best on the wing also, i forgot to mention him in my wrap-up earlier in this thread, but he was really solid, i felt as though Morrison was the best Orange team wing and Henderson the best Blue Team wing.....

    I think he is pretty good defensively, just not great offensively. If he is stopping the game’s best forwards, that is fine though in my opinion...

    calling players out for being crap does not equal whipping boy, although i do agree the criticism on Frawley seems unjustified atm....

    Yes Impey was going to be my suggestion.

    The other one people will bang on about is Shiels which will be completely unwarranted.

    Yeah I used to agree with you 100%.. But I feel like his performance has dropped, and I hazard a guess it's more about his body than anything else.

    Shiels is a stalwart, the foot soldier every club needs, he is a great contributor to our footy club.

    I am a big wait and see with Impey, let's see how he impacts games both offensively and defensively.

    I love what Shiels does but it seems many supporters don't and expect him to do more.

    What people don't understand is he does all the things that go unnoticed.

    Yes he could be more offensive etc but he plays a role and is bloody good at it.

    Did anyone notice Hardwick waltz away from two opponents that had him surrounded on the grandstand boundary? It was unreal.

    I don't recall any of the big forwards monstering us, so he can't be doing too badly...

    I like KB & think he has a good future with the club but I reckon if you looked at his games played vs time at club he would have a much worse record than Chip in terms of being injured so I reckon we need Chip to hang around for a bit longer

    unless he fixes up the kicking yips, I have a feeling Will Langford could be very popular on Big Footy.... ;)

    I didn't see it Lucky, but I have a feeling Hardwick is going to give us many many sprcial memories this season. As if his 2017 wasn't fantastic, we could be in for another step up in class from him.

    Needs to at least be someone who's getting a fairly regular run in the seniors.

    Of all the youngsters on our list, Shaun Burgoyne is most excited by CJ, according to my workmate

    Believes he has enormous potential
