Still the same list (mostly).

I legit hated Scott, but ultimately our players need to perform too and they were rubbish.

Can't put it all on Scott (as much as I'd like to)

Time for our players to start delivering.
Im a north supporter everything I say tongue is firmly in cheek. I’m very much aware of where we’re at.

Rhyce has been trading the house down. Could we again be ahead of the game - captain/coach. Most things turn full circle.
To all who are a little bit serious, I am joking;):thumbsu:

People are quick to forget our 80+ point shellacking from bloody Freemantle in round one last year, and from memory a lot of folks were super confident 12 months ago too.
Not those who witnessed it live, like me.
I was astounded by the hubris before that game and it seems some have short memories.

Wood and Walker are question marks in that backline.

The rest looks good. Would find a way to fit Scott into the team.

Looks to be at least 28 players who can play at the level required to play finals.

I wouldn't mind us going in with this team to see how it functions.

While I think a solid team, I would swap Durdin with Walker, and possibly someone for Daw (depending on fitness) who offers more run. Hosie is your darkhorse, and I think he'll play 10+ games this year, I dont think he will start in R1. I think Bonar or Turner are more likely starters.

Good effort, nonetheless.

.

Ditch Wood and add Paul Ahern or Bailey Scott onto that flank. Got enough marking/spoiling talent there as is, waaaaaay too top heavy, needs a classy distributor/runner. I'd also prefer to go with Durdin first up ahead of Walker, but if Walker plays I'll be fine, is a quality footballer.

next in: durdin, ahern, turner, Wood, hosie, Bonar, Scott, hall, bmac, (any of these 8 could easily be in the 22 and I don’t think we lose much).

if EVW, Jacobs and W Walker are fit then we Finally have 30+ AFL ready boys to pick from. Get the right game plan/tactics and a bit of luck on the injury front and I could see us pushing top 5.
