With the news of Sheps likely retirement and Redden out for a while (may struggle to get back in the squad?) with his shoulder surgery, who is likely to take their spots?

Hopefully Clark can slot straight in to cover for Redden, and we should have cover for Shep with all the HB's we've got on the list

Can see round 1 team looking like:

Witherden Barrass Hurn
Duggan Gov Rotham
Gaff Clark Kelly
Rioli Allen Ryan
Petrucelle JK Darling
Naita Shuey Yeo
Sheed SPS Cripps Chesser/Foley/Cole

No apparent sightings of Shepp, JK, NN or Gov at pre-season sessions so far. Natural given it’s only 1-4 year players that are required.

However, a few senior players (Shuey, TK, Barrass, Sheed & Bunga) have hit the track.

Shepp’s absence is self-evident given reports of concussion issues. NN & JK both had good seasons last year so deserve the break.

Hip surgery or not I’m a touch disappointed (though not surprised) that Gov hasn’t been sighted at least even walking/jogging a few laps in the rehab group. He seriously needs to extract the digit this year given how poor his last two seasons have been relative to how much cap space he’s chewing up.

Still not sure of Allen pinch hitting unless we get Gov to cover Nic nat and Allen swings back when Nic Nat rests. But a tasty looking side

My mate was doing a business course over the last few days and Gov was the main speaker. Too busy making money to appear at token pre season.

Simmo needs to stop using Allen in the ruck ASAP unless it's a complete necessity.
He said that he can't keep using him in the ruck every week after the round 5 game when he scored 5 goals but then continued using him there... :think:

The house reno he’s spruiking for his builder on Instagram isn’t going to pay for itself. Though I’m sure that advertising has been built in as a contract variation in Gov’s favour no doubt.

Yeah right. Plenty of fingers in plenty of pies. Figuratively and literally in some respects when you think back to his early days at the club.

No qualms with him setting himself up for life after footy. In fact he’s probably going to do really well as his playing contract is life changing enough.

But in terms of setting an example (like Shuey), both to teammates and supporters, he’s coming across as very comfortable on big coin without having to put in the hard yards.

Absolutely, post hip surgery is no excuse for not putting in the hard 400's. Who carers about long term injury. Medically supervised rehab is for girls.

Anyone else think Ryan is going to go up a level. One of the biggest influences of his career is now at the club in Schofield. Then you already have Kyal Horsley at the club and now Greg Clark both players he played with in those 2 years at Subi that got him his AFL chance. Just really can't help but think that he's really going to benefit from it.
