If it is to win a flag in 2021 and didnt need to worry about salary cap..

1. Brodie Grundy, will bounce back to 2019 form
2. Dustin Martin, As good as it gets
3. Liam Ryan, We need someone at the feet of Harry McKay
4. Andrew Gaff, Someone for paddy Cripps to Dish out to.
5. Harris Andrews, Not sure Liam Jones can be a premiership quality fullback

Selwood - Gets alot of free kicks, which is important for field position in the modern game.

Mcintosh - Need more road runners that get plucked from obscurity.

Flyin' Ryan - We Need a guy to sit on Cox's head so he'll never be out manouvered ever again.

Jake Stringer- We need a guy who is similar to De Goey so they can outdo each other.

Rugby league reject- We need a tackling machine that will monster Dust Martin rendering him useless.

My rider is I want a minimum 5 years out of them.

I'm also looking at addressing fwd, back, mid.

Harris Andrews
Either King brother

That's the bookends sorted.

then

Rowell - mid
Lukosius - back
Liam Ryan - fwd


Apologies to Adam Treloar. You weren't considered because you don't like our list.
Wouldn't you then be better taking 24-25 year olds? who are proven

The only one not "proven" is Lukosius.

Andrews is best KPD
Rowell the real deal.
LIam Ryan a jet.
I've seen enough of both the King Bros to make a call.


Happy to put up a 5 for "right now flag 21".

I guess I would pick mine for instant premiership contention for a dynasty of five flags. It all comes down to who you already had as youth. I'd be quite satisfied as either Brisbane or Port or Gold Coast to pick the prime players knowing the youth are exceptionally talented.

I went Cripps, Fyfe, and Bont due to their versatility forward, in the air and in the mid. All highly proven players.

Martin, I'll move on.


Jeremy Cameron, best forward I believe in the comp, both on the ground, in the air, set shot and around the body.

Add those players to any top 8 list and you're going to do very nicely.

Yep, if it worked for Gold Coast it'll work for who_let_the_dogs_out right?
If you don't agree with the players I picked, just post your own FFS. Seriously, it's salty campaigners like you that ruin threads like this.

I could have just posted the 5 best players in the comp, but instead I posted the 5 players I would trade in. Apparently you have to pick the west coast small forward.

2 KPD, 1 superstar, 1 small forward (allows Butters and Rozee to go into mid) and a good Mid (boak, Rockliff and Gray are all 30)
