how does our depth compare if list numbers are reduced?
In the short term, I don't think it makes much difference.
Teams will cull rookies, project players and injury cursed players. Most of the guys that aren't really playing much seniors anyway.
For us, Gibbons is the only one that is getting regular game time.
In the long run, smaller lists would hurt the older lists, that can't carry enough kids to replace the old guard.
A lot of our best 22 is quite young, so in theory we are less at risk by losing development player spots.
