Which players are not in our 2019 Consensus 22? And how do we see them?


Recap the Consensus 22 ...

Consensus 2019 Lineup
FB: Lachie Plowman - Liam Jones - Kade Simpson
HB: Tom Williamson - Jacob Weitering - Caleb Marchbank
C: Marc Murphy - Ed Curnow - Zac Fisher
HF: Mitch McGovern - Charlie Curnow - S. Petrevski-Seton
FF: Will Setterfield - Harry McKay - Alex Fasolo
R: Matthew Kreuzer - Patrick Cripps - Paddy Dow
I: Nic Newman - Matthew Kennedy - Jarrod Pickett - Sam Walsh

[EMG: Lochie O'Brien - Dale Thomas - David Cuningham - Tomas Bugg]


Who missed out? The technical depth ...

Rucks ... Lobbe. Phillips
Forward Rucks ... TDK. Casboult
Defenders ... Macreadie. Schumacher. B Silvagni. Docherty.
Midfielders ... O’Brien. Cuningham. Stocker. Lang. Polson. J Silvagni.
Forwards ... Kerr. Garlett. O’Dwyer.
Plug gaps and rookies ... Thomas. Bugg. Lebois. Owies.


Who can seamlessly step up into the 22? The quality depth ...

- If Kreuzer misses, our ruck stocks are not close on quality. I think Lobbe gets first go. I would not be surprised if we rest Kreuzer and play TDK say 3 games in 2019.

- Of the defenders, Macreadie could be ready to go in 2019. Hoping Schumacher steps up but a long way from Simpson / Docherty ...

- Midfield group benefits from playing most of the year together in the VFL. If Setterfield is not ready early in the season, then O’Brien gets first crack. Next 2 are Cuningham and Stocker. We are doing well if Lang racking up the possessions but cannot get into the Senior 22.

- Forwards, I think Garlett and J Silvagni (plays midfield in VFL) can do well in Senior 22 if called on.

I rate ... Macreadie. O’Brien. Garlett. J Silvagni.
I hope for ... Cuningham. Stocker. Schumacher. Lebois.

If this is a glimpse of our VFL team (see below), I'll be going to watch them with very keen interest.

Rucks ... Lobbe. Phillips
Forward Rucks ... TDK. Casboult
Defenders ... Macreadie. Schumacher. B Silvagni. Docherty.
Midfielders ... O’Brien. Cuningham. Stocker. Lang. Polson. J Silvagni.
Forwards ... Kerr. Garlett. O’Dwyer.
Plug gaps and rookies ... Thomas. Bugg. Lebois. Owies.

And they'll be playing a fair brand of hard-nosed footy, all trying to elevate into the Seniors (sorry Doc).

The 3 most likely for promotion? I'll go out on a limb and back in LOB, Lobbe, and I'll lob in the "Lobbler"...I mean the "Cobbler".

Mentioned this is another thread, but i really hope that Lachie Plowman can recapture his 2016/17 form.

Last season, Plowman was plagued by injury and so empty of confidence, like he was carrying the weight of the world on his shoulders. I want to see him enjoy playing his football, and if that means playing him further up the ground so be it. Oddly enough, i could see him becoming an Armfield type defensive/chasing and tackling small foward, if the MC decided to mix things up a bit.
Can't help but feel Docherty's absence last season affected LP and his game more than any other player on our list.
I am still a big fan and believer in Lachie, one bad season does not make a summer.

I honestly think Lachie P reinventing himself and his role could be the shot in the arm that he and the team needs.
