Georgiades in for Marshall is the obvious one.

Hate to be a broken record or kick a guy when he's down but it needs to happen.

Georgiiades shows more than Marshall he needs to be in next year.
but I could see Ebert, Westhoff, rocky, Motlop all going. we need to tryout new midfielders.

Should be time to move on from Hartlett, Rockliff, and Motlop.

It's time to start phasing some senior players out and start a new era. We've been living off 2014 for years now with just disappointment.

Our long term looks terrific. Short term we're not there at all. Geelong, Hawthorn, West Coast, Richmond. Only Hawthorn out of that group won the premiership that year, so can't even claim second best. The rest of the years didn't make finals lol.

Can suck it!
If we are to go 2 steps further in 2021 SPP and Rozee need to make the transition to full time mids, someone other than Dixon needs to kick 40+goals and we need to find a gun tall centre half back.

I have no idea what our best 22 looks like, but if Drew, Hayes, Williams, Bergman and Garner are not in contention by this time next year - having played at least 5 AFL games each in 2021 - then I’ll be very disappointed.

Farrell, I have no expectation of.

Mead, I have no idea about.
Don't think the coaches rate Garner, pity as I think he has potential. Agree with the others you mentioned and I would add Pasini & Jones for a couple of games too.

*Assuming we land him as a Free Agent given he apparently doesn't want to leave SA


Rockliff - Love him, but too slow. This may have been his last opportunity as a best 22 player.
Burton - Needs to prove his fitness and reliablility, can afford for him to get injured every 3rd game or so.
Marshall - Needs to be made very clear he is going into his 5th year now. Its time to deliver or you are in the SANFL. No more excuses, no more “potential”. Step or or else.

Hayes needs to play next season period.

Motlop needs to be played in the Magpies next year, as it is unacceptable that he plays or 3 decent games a season. I would much rather we develop our youngsters than waste anither season with him in the senior side.

Hopefully we can pull a Rabbit our of the hat and find a quality player to add to the side.

If Dixon Boak and Gray can remain around the mark of where they are this year. We get improvement from Durrsma, Butters, Rozee. Get a step up from MG in his second year and can see Williams/Bergman impact games we can challenge again next year.

Need to seriously improve our garbage entries inside 50.

How do I see it

FF. R.Gray Dixon Ladhams
HF Butters. Marshall. Rozee
C. Duurs. Wines. Amon
HB DBJ. Jonas. Houston
FB. Cluery. McKenzie. Burton
RK. Lycett. Boak SPP
Int: Hartlett, Mead, Jones, ????

Main backups and players we need to see L Jones, Schofield, Mead, Williams, Bergman

I would be transition Rockliff and Motlop in addition to Ebert and Westy retiring, this frees up some of those 30 somethings.

Hartlett Boak and Gray to rotate during the season with managed tests

A busy clearance midfielder would be on my wish list, unless that’s a fit Rozee with a Woodcock/Fantasia/Williams type moving into Rozee draft

Assuming there are no big fishes incoming, this is what I ultimately think our best 22 should look like. It definitely won't be in round 1 but I think we would have more success going forward into the future like this.

B - Jones, Mckenzie, Jonas
HB - Hartlett, Clurey, DBJ
C - Duursma, Wines, Amon
HF - Rozee, Georgiades, Butters
F - Woodcock, Dixon, Gray
R - Lycett, Boak, SPP

Int: Houston, Ladhams, Burton, Garner

Jones and Garner in the side allows DBJ, Houston, and Burton to push further up the ground. Gives us more versatility and options (Houston into the guts, Burton onto HF flank) Whoever out of Williams and Bergman grabs their opportunity next year is next in line. A ton of x factor, and a good blend of youth and experience that will allow us to push for our next premiership
