Numbers wise he's comparing favourably for sure! Similarly there are times where he just looks a different class entirely when out on field, but in saying that I can't recall a game I watched where Walsh and Daicos weren't in the best 3-5 players on ground, but I'd argue that Ashcroft has had a couple where he hasn't.
Ashcroft is honestly the only one I'd be confident on having a significant impact early, others like Wardlaw, Sheezel, Clark, Hewett, Szybkowski, etc. would be slower burns given I don't think they'll get the midfield opportunities that Ashcroft does, or they don't have a second position in which they dominate enough that they'd be high scorers. Sheezel the exception there because he's always a sneaky chance of slotting 4 goals from nowhere, but if I had to do one my guess would be;
1. Ashcroft, 2. Wardlaw, 3. Sheezel, 4. Jhye Clark, 5. Elijah Hewett
Appreciate the detailed response mate, I had the same top 4 so confirms that for me, definitely some silver lining for finishing last as ashcroft looks a jet.
One last question, what key forward do you think would be the best fit for the pies and do you think it’s likely that one of cadman, keeler or lemmey makes it to our pick?
