Without seeing any of the scratch matches I can only go off what I saw in 2019... I thought Drew showed a bit and should get a look in for Eberts spot.

MG in for Marshall.

Would love to see Mead and Burgoyne step up but of the two, Mead is probably the only one ready as Burgoyne has pretty much missed 2 years of football.

Burton needs to get his body 100% right, great player but we cant afford passengers.

Need a strong 195cm plus backman dont think any of our current talls have the accountability to play down back.

As our side gets better, I’d like to see a bit more fluid squad mentality until a couple of weeks before finals.

Think it’s time to get Bergman and Williams in too, and Rozee, SPP and Butters more into the midfield.

Unless it is raining or really dewy, I think Rocky misses, id like to see Houston given another crack in the middle, opening space for Bergman and/or Jones.



Forwards

Dixon, Marshall, Georgiades/Ladhams (50/50 - with Marshall learning to chop in the ruck when MG plays)
Gray, Orazio?, Williams

(Motlop, Woodcock)

Mids

Lycett (80%) (Ladhams 20%)
Inside - Wines, SPP (Rockliff)
Hybrid - Boak, Rozee, Butters, Houston (Mead)
Outside - Amon, Duursma (Schofield, Farell)

Defence

Jonas, Clurey/McKenzie (Allir Allir?)
DBJ, Burton, Hartlett, Bergman, (Jones)

The 2021 Premiership lineup:

F: Motlop - Dixon - Gray
HF: Rozee - Georgiades - Duursma
C: Amon - Boak - Butters
HB: Byrne-Jones - Aliir - Hartlett
B: McKenzie - Jonas (C) - Houston
R: Ladhams - Wines - Powell-Pepper
INT: Rockliff - Jones - Burton - Woodcock

Maybe an unpopular opinion but I think 90% of ruck taps aren't to any advantage so I'd rather an agile Ladhams in ruck and joining in with the midfield, with Dixon forward rucking, Aliir defensive rucking.

Would like Butters around the ball which puts Duursma and Rozee in forward who are good kicks and could provide the leading options that we vitally need to reform our forward tactics.

Georgiades is a good contestant mark to give a proper second tall forward. (The only attempt in a contest I've ever seen from Marshall resulted in a shoulder injury)

Would prefer better smallfast/leading forwards than Motlop and Woodcock but I'll have them there for lack of better options. Unless there's a young new player (Mead?) on the list or Fantasia(if not injured) ready for a shot at replacing by finals.

Clury for Burton if injured.

Out Clurey or McKenzie.
In Ladhams.
Houston isn't a midfielder- we don't need 9 defenders in our 22.

Apart from the youngers players i can see the pressure on Lycett, Rocky, McKenzie, Hartlett & Amon. Players such as Hayes, Mead, Woodcock, Drew, Bergman & Pasini should really be snapping at their heels from the outset.

Super push for spots now: I’ve got Rocky out, with Georgiades in, as I’d like to see him develop as a big half forward flanker. If he is not there yet, Rocky back in and Rozee/Butters to go forward
