I'm still of the opinion that Robbie is at his most valuable in the middle. His 'rests' up forward need to be a lot shorter this year.

P.s. That is one beautiful sounding dream.
He's pretty damn damaging in a forward pocket, if we need him in the midfield next year we're in trouble. Time for Wines and SPP to carry the midfield and Rockliff (based on his form for us) or Atley to step up and be a force in the engine room.

Jarrad Schofield is our midfield coach now ... its going to be interesting as to what he does in this area .. I think there might be a few surprises. :thumbsu:
And, of course, I hope Atley is one of them :D

Pardon the intrusion, thought I'd have a crack -

Clurey Jonas DBJ

Houston Howard Bonner

Boak Wines Westhoff

Motlop Marshall Watts

Gray Dixon Gray

Ryder Ebert Burton*

SPP Rozee Rockliff Lycett


* be interesting to see where Burton ends up. I've thrown him in the middle to see if he can bring some class in disposal to the bulls of Wines and co.

Does Marshall get a game with Lycett now joined?

Interesting options for the coaches to consider.

In my opinion only one of Watts and Marshall can play, and I would personally have Marshall over Watts.

Also considering dropping Ebert or Boak for someone that has a big preseason. Thinking maybe someone like Atley, Butters, Duursma or Drew could push for Round 1, even Mayes potentially.

Sounds like Burton will play half back

Cant remember which player was speaking but said with Burton and Hartlett coming back into the fold would need to find another spot..... oh it was Bonner now i think of it. He was saying he could be used on a wing potentially left side wing that Polec seemed to hold.

Ill be interested in Rozee's role i feel he will be a wingman with Westhoff and Bonner this year.

Burton isn't a wingman. He's a 3rd key back, possibly a tall flanker or even a 3rd tall forward. If you look at all the feedback on him on the Hawks board, he's a bit soft over the ground ball, and not suited at all for the midfield.
