Curtis and bailey with muscle would be pretty scary.
100% with you on this. Both players that have massive scope for improvement if they can get their bodies right. Bailey needs a stack of size and maintain that workrate and he could be a weapon.

Curtis needs to put on 5-6kg's over the next 2 seasons then cut back. He too could be a very dangerous matchup but he needs to keep one hand on a position whilst building a body and it will take minimum 2 more pre seasons - if he can't stay in touch with the first 26 players I can see him just fading away. Has plenty of tricks though, if he can develop his body he would be an incredibly difficult matchup.

Could both be a real point of difference vs other teams.
Gotta keep improving because they're going to find it hard to push the likes of ford etc out of a spot.

I am so f*kn happy with how much we have invested in this area.

Gives us every opportunity to succeed sooner rather then later. So sick of players taking 10 years in our system to become *elite aerobically.

*North elite = not AFL elite

I'm so sick of this mentality that new players have to take 3-4 years before they come good.
The new SC team will change that.

Been saying this for years. Until we get our fitness and strength right we will never be successful
