Matho doesn’t play the CEY role.

As mentioned by Quigley, JBerry is the young player on our list who is most likely to play the CEY role, and he probably offers more in that role.

Mathieson’s game is more similar to JLyons.

Both Joyce and Robertson play the Neale type game.

TBerry is most suited to play a similar role to MRobbo, as a wing, high half forward. Or go in to the midfield and again play similar to Mitch in there.

Ely offers something different to our other young mids, as a big bodied bull with burst speed and power. But he doesn’t have the natural feel for the game as Robertson or Joyce as an inside mid.

I’ll admit I’m a little concerned about our depth going to the season.

A possible best 22.

Witherden, Adams, Gardiner
Birchall, Andrews, Rich

Robinson, Berry, McCluggage
Martin, Neale, Lyons

Rayner, Hipwood, Zorko
McCarthy, McStay, Cameron

Bench: McInerney, Answerth, Bailey, Ellis-Yolmen.

Depth. Only listing those I have confidence of playing a role. Italics players I do have some reservations about.
Defence: Payne, Lester, Hinge.
Midfield: A.Smith, Mathieson, C.Lyons, E.Smith, Robertson.
Forward: Skinner, Christensen, Ah Chee, Cox.

What about Ballenden as a forward?

You could do the same for every list in the comp
Of course.

But as a potential contending team, I wish a couple of our best 22 were our top depth players.

Mathieson and Cory Lyons are our two most experienced inside mids in the reserves, and one of them hasn’t played an AFL game.

Nor do we have much experience in our KPP depth.

Some lists, I look at a couple of players outside their best 22, and think they’re genuine quality or, that kid is a potential gun.
