Alright, so that’s a wrap on preseason. I reckon this is what we’ll go with.

B Ridley - Zerk-Thatcher - Francis
HB Saad - Hurley - Redman
C Langford - Parish - Cutler
HF Smith - Stringer - Townsend
F McDonald-Tipungwuti - McKernan - Fantasia
R Phillips - Merrett - Shiel
Int. McKenna - McGrath - Zaharakis - Gleeson
Emg. Laverde - Snelling - Ham - Guelfi

Best 22 comes out of the first 25 named here imo. I especially want Ham and Snelling in the lineup, but I’m struggling to find a spot for them. Reckon we take 2 of Langford/Cutler/Ham. Could easily take Laverde over Townsend, but after today Townsend probably gets first crack.

I love Raz, but he’d want to show something in round 1.
This is the side for me too. You could make a case for all the emergencies you named. Ham has been great but Cutler probably adds a bit more in the air and in the contest at this stage. The return of Stringer is unfortunate for Laverde as he hasn't done much wrong.

Hi guys.

Apologies if there’s a better thread for it - mods, feel free to move if required.

Just wanted to get your thoughts on Cutler and Ridley - do you see them as playing mostly seniors?

Thanks.
