Everyone's teams look great to me.

KPD's: Rance, Grimes, Astbury, Garth, Balta, Miller
D Mids: Houli, Vlas, Edwards, Short, Broad, Baker, Naish, D E Smith, Menadue
In/Out Mids: Prestia, Cotch, Martin, Graham,Lambert, Pickett, Stack, Caddy, Ross, Kmac, RCD,Turner, English
F Mids: Rioli, Bolton, Castagna,Higgins,Townsend, Markov, Aarts
KPF: Lynch, Riewoldt, Moore
Rucks: Soldo, Nank, CCJ, Chol

So...to squeeze a best 22 from there...
B Grimes, Rance, Astbury
HB Houli, Vlas, Edwards
C Stack, Pickett, Caddy
HF Lambert, Riewoldt, Rioli
F Castagna, Lynch, Martin
R Soldo, Prestia, Cotch
Int Nank,Broad, Graham, Bolton, Baker, Ross, Kmac

I would really like to see Pickett get a run of games early, to see what he can do.
He just looks like an old fashioned centerman to me...and he'll just accumulate and create without any fuss (based on 1 game)
And Stacky, well, he's just gotta play...i dont know where his best position is, he's just a natural footballer.

I'm just interested in what the tigers fans would like to see the line up look like come round 1 next year.

Let's say they trial it during the preseason and it all works, so feel free to put players where they might not normally be of you think it would work.

Mine would look like this:

I like it but when you look at it, it demonstrates how hard it will be to put a team on the park,

How can you not have Castagna. Was consistently better than Rioli last year and more a natural forward than Short. He would be ahead of Bolton as well at this stage. Would he not be the first small forward picked? Wasn't Rioli dropped last year while he maintained his place?

Castagna:

Bolton is the player on our list I am most excited about though.

credit to whoever originally made that team with the cups in it - i agree with the 22 but it hurts my heart to not have Ross, Baker etc.

I had him forward but was moving him to fwd/mid... now we have to play 27.
I guess we'll need the extra five to cover the loss of Brandon.
it was like playing a man short
