You also have to have a look at every other clubs best 22 to judge and compare, most clubs best 22s look reasonable tbh.FB: Sicily - DGB - Hardwick
HB: Impey - Frost - Scrimshaw
MID: McEvoy - Mitchell - O'Meara
MID: Bramble - Worpel - Day
HF: Breust - Koschitzke - Wingard
FF: Gunston - Lewis - Moore
INT: Reeves - Jiath - Newcombe - Ward (Reckon he'll play round 1).
This is not a 'Best 22' that finishes bottom 4. Not even close.
Not sure to be honest, i think with Sam coming in it will be a fresh start and whoever performs will get the gig round 1.I think it is more likely than not that all the draftees will start with BH - to get some experience with our systems. Ward is a chance in round 1, but only if he has some serious impact in the pre-season hitouts. I see Nash as a likely starter - his physical presence in the midfield was a bit of a game changer last season.
I think you’ve gotta have bit more faith in Phillips.Ward, Bramble, Day, Scrimshaw all wing options, Downie sooner rather than later.
Seems like a good effort, i hate that Brocky can't get a gig but justifiable leaving him out.
Pre season will obviously dictate a lot but some decent talent left out of that team. Good signs going forward.
How many days until round 1?
People must listen to Kane, because we’re currently favourite for the wooden spoon according to a Poll on the main board.
Our list is a mess. Kane & our Director established this fact just last week!
Wooden spoon seems unlikely. The departures are not critical, the youngsters are a year older, we have some top players coming back from injury and some handy recruits. Maybe it is the loss of Clarkson. The systems may take a while to click into gear but I got the impression that Mitchell was alraeady having an influence in the latter part of the season, when we started winning games. We are a fair chance of bottom half but not the spoon.People must listen to Kane, because we’re currently favourite for the wooden spoon according to a Poll on the main board.
Which reminds me that the “headfu**ed by Hawthorn” thread is still as relevant as ever.
I can see Sicily kick into DGB, hand pass off to Day who sticks it in front of Ward, cuts it into Macca who jots it back to a streaming Ward who puts it up perfectly for a Butler speccy 35 out on a slight angle already.By my count, the Hawks now have 4 guys who could definitely play senior footy in the first half of next year. I'd guess two of them will debut in the first ~3 rounds. Bloody exciting.
Great point, the league does look to be really competitive next year (Collingwood the only obvious strugglers).You also have to have a look at every other clubs best 22 to judge and compare, most clubs best 22s look reasonable tbh.
It's all really a moot point though, as how often do teams field their best 22 ? Close to never.
Unless we're playing Melbourne, in which case Sicily kicks it to GawnI can see Sicily kick into DGB, hand pass off to Day who sticks it in front of Ward, cuts it into Macca who jots it back to a streaming Ward who puts it up perfectly for a Butler speccy 35 out on a slight angle already.
I definitely don't like some of the slander he cops, he has given so much to this club.People seem quick to wipe Shiels.
He is a club favourite so i suspect any talk of his demise is a little premature.
Sure, it will come, but perhaps not as quick as you might think/like.
