I'm going to wait for the real thing and see what happens, because whilst they're both good players, that doesn't guarantee an on-field chemistry that will lead to the multitude of goals that are expected.

Many expected the Holy Trinity to be unbeatable too.......
i would agree if they were the same type of player. Teams can't 3 man Hawkins now...All we are missing up front IMO is a Eddie Betts type player...

If we had a dominating first ruck we'd be equal flag favourites,it's been the achilleas for far to long now and every chance to be the rock we perish on again this season.I'd be tempted to get as many games into Fort as possible,he and Stanley to share the load Sav the back up should one need a break or injury.

Why? We already have a better ruckman than richmond. We need someone who can completely blanket dusty. That would make us favourites.

Either that or break his legs.

The ruck issue is certainly not the reason we got done in the GF. As you say, look no further than their #4 for a really clear picture of that.

Stanley would actually sit quite comfortably amongst the names of the rucks that have ended up winning premierships in recent years. Last truly great premiership ruck was actually Otto for mine. We have a very capable #1 ruck when he's playing near his best. And it is then daylight after him to our next best option at this stage.

So I'm really hoping Rhys' body holds together for this year, at the very least. Our back-up isn't good enough, and our young prospects aren't ready.

Agree...i mean if you could get kreuger or dek to come on as a key back it frees up blitz to second ruck more. The other option is you run shorter when blitz rucks and trust kolo and hendo on the talls.

The long term plan for sav will be interesting..is he more a successor to hawkins or to stanley?
Hawkins successor.

He’s lost up the ground. His strengths are launching into packs close to goal. He either marks it with superior athleticism or he breaks it open with his strength.

Hawkins is 32. The partnership of Cameron + Sav is something good to look forward to

Since my saints did a Geelong (sh*t the bed in finals and shoot themselves in the foot to lose to a lesser team) I'm back on the AFL bandwagon.
I cannot ******* wait to see these 2 spearhead our attack this coming season, I just hope the coaches adopt a more attacking, faster movement game plan to suit our potent forward options.

That adoption is key, in conjunction with an improvement in our accuracy by hand and foot, and being much more intelligent with our decision making.

We don't get those improvements and both Hawkins and Cameron will be hamstrung.

Whether we've changed the profile of our 22 enough to overcome the limitations we've suffered through age, an inability to sustain faster ball movement, or cope and perform under pressure obviously remains to be seen.

Im not sure his Hawkns successor but Id agree that is his best chance for afll success. He does not have the smarts to be anything more than marks and kick.,.its whya i have been and advcate..ihm spend hours to get his kicking better. With little in play smarts he need to be a killer convertor

Don't need to watch highlights With J Hunt then Stevie J and Simpson GWS was like a second side as i watched them every week....i would like to see him go back to hitting the packs hard for marks, he stopped that when he got suspended smashing someone when he was a bit late for the mark

I still think that even with Cameron and Hawkins in the same forward line the weakness will be the lack of quality small forwards.
astute and true... unless we can make more of ground balls, we will need to create more arial oppitunities. Even danger is more a mark option, if we compare him to Dusty , Danger is a much better much but it was his ground balls that killed us

It might be argued that someone like Greene may have been even more valuable.

I just hope someone like Evans or Tarheny can become that player

Miers and Higgins are a decent start....and I thought Brad Close showed he's up to AFL standard. He'll benefit from another pre season as well.

Hopefully a fully fit Dahlhaus can offer plenty up forward and there's a bit of talk about Evans as well.

Be interesting to see how this group perform in the lead up matches to the season's start.

With two power KPF's, the small forwards should not be starved of opportunities. What they do with them.....?
Feels like we have bigger issues in the midfield as that is where teams get on top and overpower us. Selwood has declined to the point he is barely ahead of a Menegola or Guthrie and those two boys are well renown for falling away when the pressure is turned right up a notch or two.
We desperately need a young gun to emerge to help take the pressure away from Dangerfield and Selwood. Parfitt is still a long way from being elite.

What young gun? We keep giving away all our draft picks.
