Hate to whatabout, but no Dale? You've got Williams on there twice so one of them I assume was meant to be Dale

If we could get Liam Jones and Jason Watts to make comebacks….
Oh we have a Jones now - also handy teaming Arthur with Butler.

Is anyone else concerned about Keath's hamstrings? He did his hamstring against Melbourne in round 18, and missed the Prelim with a hamstring too. He wasn't 100% for the GF.
He had hamstring issues during his cricket days too.
Might be the kind of guy that is managed and has regular rest weeks later in his career.

We should be comfortable that we will be in the window for 5 years. So what would our team look like in 5 years?

Only five quality players we are likely to lose to age are Libba, Wallis, OBrien, JJ and Trelor and in five years would expect to get at least five good players through draft and trade so looking good.

We also have five years of development of our younger players with many of them at their peak.

Only KPD (I reckon if we commit to developing Schache here - he would make it) and perhaps small forward (I am a McNeil fan) are current holes (compared to others in the window) and the key ruck is still a bit unproven and so will rely on English continuing to improve (I think he will breakout this year) and Darcy providing a threat and tap option. Darcy could be anything - maybe even our version of Darcy Moore would be perfect because we already have star quality up front.

I only hope we don’t as a team think we have plenty of time - premierships are a combo of best players, consistency through time/injury and star quality in big games.

Daniel-Jones/McNeil - McLean/Garcia-Macrae (32)

Khamis is not proven but we have considerable options with Raak, Parker and Cleary - expect one of the four to make it?

I wouldn't say no to Wallis spending some time in the firsts. With Bruce out, our forward line is super young and I reckon they really need that leader and general, not sure if Naughton is ready to take that on quite yet. I'd have Wallis over Hannan.
