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:
Speaking of ordinary, Daniel Bell?
Ripping bloke just never got an opportunity to ply his craft on the field

A great opening lineup!

I would put Matthew Whelan in for Garland (and move Rivers to CHB) as you'd really want a shut down small defender. Either Whelan or Jetta, take your pick. The Neitz/Hogan combination with either White or Gawn resting forward would be ridiculous.

Also need some outside run and class so Travis Johnstone sneaks onto the wing and Moloney gets dropped.

Best Melbourne side with players who have never played a game for the club? Sounds like a worthy challenge.
I’m in!

We need to start working on this ASAP. Perhaps there should be a 1 game maximum limit. But my only concern is that it could disqualify some true, true spuds. Maybe it should be -50 games.
