Couldn't see a best 22 on page 1

But surely your not playing all of Goldstein, CCJ, Larkey and Comben in the same side?

Especially when you have guys like T.Thomas JHF, Zurhaar and even Stephenson out of the goal square as an option aswell in the side forward of centre (All capable overhead or out of the goal square)

good observation - I don’t think it’s clear how the talls will line up yet. People are bullish on Comben so can’t see a way he misses out.

CCJ and Comben are very nimble and agile big men so only time will tell if they could possibly line up together.

you pretty much named the forward line with CCJ and Goldie splitting ruck and forward - Comben likely to miss out early until he can prove his fitness and see what happens

I have seen some like my mate have Comben off the bench like the below he shared recently- it’s possible so giess but I can see it happening early.

It could 'maybe' work if your only playing Comben around that 50% TOG

Also think if there showing that much form in VFL and the other 2 talls are still performing then it will have to occur especially if one of those others I mentioned are injured or dropped

I don't see CCJ as particularly nimble or good at applying pressure. Think he's a great pickup because he is a capable forward and could be an excellent future ruck but he's a tall bean stalk that moves like Vardy

Yeah if they all in great form things can possible work.

Nimble isn’t the sod for CCJ but he seems very agile and pretty good below his knees - better forward than ruck but will play second fiddle to Goldy and then Xerri if we can keep him.

Good thing is we have a ton of options snd a healthy list - lots of other mid/ small options too that will push hard, Mahony, Curtis Taylor , Philips , Spicer, Young Curtis - a few others all training ok and we don’t really know other than Mahoney & Taylor who’s going to put their names forward for round one.

I haven't watched much of him at the hawks but he was an absolute gun at Port and would only be late 20s now?
28 now i think, 27-28, was unreal late in the year was averaging probably 30 touches a game late and for a player of his calibre that's alot, he's just so damaging with it, gets it inside and outside, pushes forward and gives 110% every game.

He's a front running squib who only plays well against crap teams. There is a reason you tried to trade him out.
Woah, clearly not. Some of his best games have been high on the pressure and tackles chart. Watch some games please. Also he was consistently elite back end of the year and his first game of the year was a ripper vs Geelong.

Dayum, your brother is hard to please. Wingard is a very good pressure mid. Has pinged hammies defensively running haha

He doesn’t comment much, no need to get on your high horse when you’ve recently won multiple premierships.

Other quote from him was when we picked up Hartung. The Roos even had highlighted what he would deliver in preseason with his pace. Told me day one that this bloke is a turnover king, you don’t want him getting the ball, how right he was!
