fancy you said that.Seems like Franklin's body is faltering right at the finish line.
If he could manage 18+ games, Sydney should finish highest but it appears he may not even get to 14 games.
Can't take Fremantle either. Loss of Hill is telling. They couldn't replace Lachie Neale from the year before either so two ball magnets of the highest order gone.
Saints it is
Yeah we lost Lachie neale but made the best of a bad situation getting picks out of him and used those picks to get a need in Jesse hogan.
Losing Brad Hill does hurt, Hell he helped us get over the line in a few close games. Dont get me wrong, I think we can manage. Getting Blake Acres might be a good move. We could even play him on the wing.
Outside mids consist of Stephen Hill, James Aish, Darcy Tucker and Stefan Giro.
Inside mids are Fyfe, Mundy, Blakely, Conca. Some young kids in Banfield, Brayshaw crowden and Cerra. To be Fair, Cerra can play both inside mid and outside mid, hence why we used pick 5 in the 2017 draft on him.
So overall, I dont think the midfield isnt too bad.
Again, Forward line isnt too bad. This side kicked 21 goals vs North in round 1 last season despite hogan being suspended.
Also, Freo beat your mob in perth last year despite a forward line of Sean Darcy, our main ruckman as the only tall up forward, walters and matera in the forward pockets and 3 mids to fill the rest of the forward line.
