With our list for 2020 essentially finalised with only the possible addition of a player through the SSP to come, we go into next season with ?? players yet to make their AFL debut.

So which of the following is likely to get first crack at a debut in 2020?

Hamish Brayshaw
Xavier O’Neill
Luke Foley
Bailey Williams
Harry Edwards
Callum Jamieson
Ben Johnson
Anthony Treacy
Mitch O’Neill

My moneys on big Bailey with Treacy a bit of a smokie given at 22 he’s a bit older than the others.

Treacy seems a fair replacement for Rioli and has the smarts. Could be the go-er but boy oh boy I would love to see big boy Williams debut

Bailey Williams or Xavier O’Neil. Whilst we Treacy is a 22 year old we generally adhere to the pecking order unless someone’s preseason legitimately punches the selection committee in the face. Treacy currently sits behind Cameron, Petrucelle, Ryan and Venables.

1. XON
2. Williams

Williams the most ready, but would need to leapfrog a lot of others.
Feels like there's a lot less competition for a midfield debut.

Treacy if he has a good pre-season could be Ryan`s wingman in the FWD 50 ..`
XON will likely get a early game and I expect him to push for a spot this year ..
Williams is close as well especially if he focuses on playing ruck and less fwd ,he was a amazing leap and good mobility ..
Axel Foley may be a surprise packet as well I thought he was developing really well last year ..

Really excited by Treacy. However, I just watched the highlights of Fredericks, the freo recruit some BF members were laughing about, some random unknown apparently, but jeesuz the kid can play. X Factor and skill in spades. Very evasive - freo have got a beauty there.

Personally feel
Williams will smash the door down all year and play 1-5 games injury’s pending
XoN to become the clear cut best seconds midfielder 2-8 games
Edwards to play well and earn a taste of the big time 1-3 games
Mitch Oniell have a ripper year and possibly snag a couple games in a Mastodon role

Any injury to NN or Hickey will allow Williams his debut. And knowing how injury prone NN and Hickey are, I'd unfortunately say sooner rather than later.

I see no reason for Williams to start behind Hickey in the pecking order next season, provided Naitanui is fit.

I reckon Williams plays round one if he has a good pre season.

Called it with Ollen last year that he’d be in our best 22 by the end of the year, I’m putting Big Bad Bailey in as well.
