No doubt missed somebody, and I choose to ignore the 50 games in the 21st century requirement.

B: Whelan, Ingerson, Jetta
HB: S. Febey, Rivers, Brown
C: Bruce, Jones, Leoncelli
HF: Davey, Green, Howe
F: Farmer, Neitz, Robertson
Foll: Gawn, Moloney, J. McDonald
Int: White, Johnstone, Woewodin, Schwarz
Coach: Neale Daniher

Oliver unlucky to be in the only area where I didn't have to obviously reach to find somebody. I was never a massive Travis Johnstone fan but have gone for him instead in the hope of finding some run. Also considered Grimes, Harmes, Hogan, T. McDonald, Miller, Rigoni, Sylvia, Vince, Viney, Walsh and Watts.

Decent team, wouldn't beat many of the other best 22s.

Edit - IN: Schwarz, OUT: Dunn. Neitz can go into defence if required.

just to clarify this is for what players have done in the 21st century only. not players who played this century but did all their good work last century....

Id probably have Oliver as RR ahead of Moloney, pretty much bang on overall other than that tho imo.

Would be good to make the lower bar 25 games, or something similar. Every club has shocking players, but we manage to keep giving them a game / contract / career despite overwhelming evidence of plod.

I like the side as much as anyone could like the bulk of our 21st century efforts. I’d chuck Whelan, Jetta and Bizzell in the backline instead of T Mac, Garland and Davey.

Trav Johnstone over Viney on the wing (positional more than anything).

Davey in the forward line over Garlett for defensive pressure.

Jack Viney over Woewodin on the bench. I’m not really sold on the need for Jeff White as a second ruck, so maybe T McDonald in his place for versatility.

Edit: Garlett over Moloney on the bench. Although, you never can have too many inside mids.

Just saw Steven May lol... You bastard!!

And Jesse Hogan....he'd go in the "most overrated" team , not sure about the worst tho.
Twas a line ball call between James Sellar and Steven May, and Paul Johnson and Jesse Hogan if I’m honest. 😉

The stunning thing about this team is that there were so many other ordinary players like Dan Nicholson, Chris Lamb, Simon Buckley, Chris Johnson and so on to miss out. Depth :rainbow:
