    Here's mine:

    FF: Walters/McCarthy/Griffin
    HF: Langdon/Kersten/Crozier
    C: B Hill/Mundy/S Hill
    HB: Weller/Hamling/Johnson
    FB: Spurr/Dawson/Ibbotson

    I/C: Blakely/D Pearce/Tucker/Logue

    EMG: Taberner/Suban/Collins

    I would agree except for:

    The team should be kicking down with the backs at the top.

    Just a little amused that almost the first person you think of putting in is Zak Dawson (especially with Hawkins playing). Zak will do a good job but I am now really disappointed that we wont be seeing the Pearce/Hamling combination anytime soon.

    I think we will look like this:
    Spurr Dawson Hamling
    Ibbotson Johnson Weller
    B. Hill Mundy S. Hill
    Crozier Kersten Blakely
    Walters McCarthy Griffin
    Sandilands Neale Fyfe
    D. Pearce Tucker Langdon Sutcliffe

    We really need to get some youngsters into that backline, hoping we can move on Dawson & Ibbotson ASAP. Everyone but Weller and Hamling in that backline could be gone in 2-3 years.

    I've always had the forwards first. Dunno why.

    Spurr - Dawson - Ibbotson
    Johnson - Hamling - Weller
    B.Hill - Fyfe - D.Pearce
    Walters - Kersten - Langdon
    Griff - McCarthy - Crozier
    Sandi - Neale - S.Hill
    Mundy - Tucker - Sutcliffe - Blakely

    I feel like moving Stephen Hill inside has proven to be a great move, yet see a lot more people keeping out on the wing in their 22s. Tucker, Walters and D.Pearce can all play on that wing so there isn't a shortage of players in that position or anything. Does move Mundy to the bench though.

    I'm curious to know why Collins has been "left right out" lately ?.

    Last season I saw him as slowly moving into Dawson's position. It appears that Zac is back in favour and Collins is peeling.

    By the way, I'm a great fan of Zac's defensive work, unfortunately my finger nails struggle when he does attacking ( going forward ) work.

    Midfield is where we have a good chance in this game.

    Cats have two of their better midfielders coming into Round 1 with injury concerns. Cam Guthrie had a calf injury in JLT one and didn't play in the other games and Mitch Duncan looks like he might have gotten a bit of a hamstring ping in the game against Essendon.

    After Dangerfield and Selwood, Duncan and Guthrie were in their top 5 in terms of disposal numbers last season - with Enright (retired) the other rounding out that Top 5 list.

    I'd say yes he's starting in the middle more and I know they keep talking up Stephen's move into the middle.... but I'd say he's still being used mostly on the outside.

    Stephen Hill over the last 2 games (Collingwood, Carlton) has had:
    Contested possesions - 11
    Uncontested possesions - 47

    Danyle Pearce for example has had more contested possessions than S Hill over the last two games.

    I'd like to think it's because we really want to win round 1 and Tom Hawkins is just about the only forward Dawson matches up well against.

    I would hope Collins has replaced Zac by season's end; he adds a bit more versatility.

    I really don't want Zac in the team, however of the teams you would play him on match up alone .....it is probably Geelong/North Melbourne - Hawkins is just a big lunk immobile forward and the prescription is a big lunk immobile back ...allows Hamling to take Taylor and for MJ to zone off and use that laser guided left foot to release the greyhounds in the midfield and flanks.

    But every possession of Danyle's is a contest... between the many voices in his head. "quick, kick it", "don't look, just kick", "should I look for an leading player", "nah, just bomb it in", "look some empty space, kick it there"

    I really dont want to see Dawson there but after reports on Collins not performing overly well himself on the weekend it's left me withno choice but to go with experience. Hurry up, Alex Pearce!

    LOL

    When I gave to go ahead I didn't expect you to make one almost immediately Yello Mit :D

    Expecting Croz to come in for Ballas and to, at the very least, chase until he throws up. Reckon he'll go ok. With a few guys we could add to the LTI I wouldn't be averse to a sudden Brady Grey upgrade but it's unlikely we'll see anyone who didn't play JLT.
    Think you've nailed it. I'd be pretty surprised at this stage if we didn't line up this way.

    I just wish that old West Perth player from the 70's, Bill Valli, was playing for us. That way we could have a centre line of -

    This is just a wish list, not what you actually think the team will be right?

    Sutcliffe isn't going to be dropped for Logue in round 1.

    Zac was never out of favour. He was injured or suspended. Lyon loves Zac and I expect he will be best 22 until he's in his late 30's.

    This will be the team. Except we'll only play 5 forwards and Crozier will play in defense. Bit harsh starting Mundy on the bench tho.

    The Crozier and Hill brothers playing together terrific idea - does the other Crozier go all right?
