B: D. Houston, T. Clurey, D. Byrne-Jones
HB: J. Watts, T. Jonas, R. Burton
C: T. Boak, T. Rockliff, S. Motlop
HF: R. Gray, J. Westhoff, Z. Butters
F: B. Ebert, T. Marshall, P. Ryder
R: S. Lycett, T. Boak, S. Powell-Pepper
INT: W. Drew, R. Bonner, C. Rozee, K. Amon
EMG: S. Mayes, B. Frampton, M. Broadbent, D. Howard

When all fit, Hartlett in for Bonner, Wines in for Drew, Dixon probably in for Marshall unless he pulls his finger out. One of Lienert or Howard will have to come in for certain matchups too, but probably not needed against post-Hogan Melbourne.

A fit Dixon is easily best 22 and the first picked key forward

Round 1 vs Melbourne:

B: Jonas Clurey Byrne-Jones
HB: Houston Burton Bonner


C: Motlop Boak Watts

HF: Butters Ebert R. Gray
F: Westhoff Marshall Ryder


R: Lycett SPP Rockliff

INT: Drew Rozee Duursma Amon

EDIT: Howard was dropped for JLT 2 so I don’t think he’ll come straight back in. Duursma stays in now.

Apologies that one slipped through to the keeper. Edited. Somehow spell check thinks Broady is a roast
He's done pretty well this pre-season in the intra-club and game vs South. I was one of the guys that said he was finished, but he's giving it a good fight. I've got him as an emergency.

Duursma probably a touch unlucky. Probably just in front of Rozee at this point but plays a position where he has more competition.

Not going to be easy (dropping 3) to bring in Wines Dixon and Hartlett

Yes it is, those playing the worst go. Don't pick on name and reputation, select best players in form and it makes it easy!

Duursma goes for Wines
DBJ for Hartlett
Marshall for Dixon
Lienert for Howard
Duursma wasn’t in the side, Howard named. I was referring to the predicted side above not yesterday’s side that played norf.

Presumably; Drew for Wines. Certainly if Rockliff and Boak keep there form going.

Yes Marshall for Dixon, I like persisting with Marshall, but needs to lift to hold his spot when Dixon comes back in.

Probably has to be DBJ for Hartlett.

Id feel sorry for Drew...I really like what Ive seen. Importantly, his disposal efficiency is right up there but this might also indicate he plays it a bit safe.
Ebert, Boak and Wines ALL need to improve their dispasal efficiency this season.

There are no other teams
B: D. Houston, T. Clurey, D. Byrne-Jones
HB: J. Watts, T. Jonas, R. Burton
C: T. Boak, T. Rockliff, S. Motlop
HF: R. Gray, J. Westhoff, Z. Butters

On the money, I reckon. My fear, though, is Dixon will be a lot longer than what we're being told.

Boak is so good you list him twice.

I'm guessing you've got Duursma in there somewhere.

Oops.

Nah I'd make room for Mayes in that case. I don't think Duursma's ready. Kid definitely has potential but I think he's got some flaws that need to be ironed out in the SANFL first.
