Of course they would get a game at North. Which has been my whole point ITT that their best players are old...These are the 9 in question.
No Name Games Age Date of Birth Height Weight Origin Position 4 Ablett, Gary 352 36yr 2mth 14 May 1984 182cm 87kg Geelong Falcons Forward 7 Taylor, Harry 270 34yr 1mth 12 Jun 1986 195cm 94kg East Fremantle Defender 14 Selwood, Joel 303 32yr 2mth 26 May 1988 183cm 84kg Bendigo Midfield 26 Hawkins, Tom 266 32yr 21 Jul 1988 198cm 103kg Melbourne Grammar Forward 11 Jenkins, Josh 147 31yr 5mth 8 Feb 1989 200cm 108kg Frankston Forward 2 Tuohy, Zach 196 30yr 7mth 10 Dec 1989 187cm 93kg County Laois, Ireland Defender 25 Henderson, Lachlan R 174 30yr 7mth 14 Dec 1989 196cm 98kg Geelong Falcons Defender 9 Steven, Jack 188 30yr 4mth 28 Mar 1990 180cm 83kg Geelong Falcons Midfield
35 Dangerfield, Patrick 258 30yr 4mth 5 Apr 1990 189cm 92kg Geelong Falcons Midfield
Bar Jenkins, all of them would get a game at North.
Plus they have depth from under and a strong draft hand.
So yes, it's factually correct they have multiple players over 30. But so what?
If you're thinking guys like Zac Guthrie, Charlie Constable, Nakia Cockatoo & James Parsons are going to replace guys like Ablett, Selwood, Hawkins, Dangerfield, Taylor, Steven etc. though well I don't really know what to tell you.
They probably won't be bad players but it would be a miracle if they ended up carrying the team like those old blokes currently do.
