I don't think Kennedy is best 22. He has played most of their games so far but that's just because Buntine, Hampton and Haynes have all been injured. Would have all 3 of those guys in ahead of Bugg too.

On SEN the other day Leon said that he doesn't want to play any of the first year players at all.

Patton has recovered awesomely and could play round 1 but they are going to hold off just to be super safe but will be back by round 10.

Griff is a scumbag.

LW hasn't come back from his shoulder surgery as well as expected and might not be ready for rd 1.

The team just looks better and better each season. I think the Giants could really surprise a few this year.

It's a question of where the goals are going to come from.

Between guys like Cameron, Tomlinson, Dev and WHE, that forward line is pretty capable. Their mids can always slot a goal per game too. Might be being a tad optimistic, but I don't think they'll have a problem.

Patful is a very good inclusion should stop key forwards kicking a dozen goals against them

They need to find an extra 25 goals to play finals I think and that's going to be a real stretch.

Finals is a bet of stretch, don't think anybody expects that or mentioned it?

Won't be near finals but I expect them to take a big step forward and be far more competitive.
Think the 100 point beltings should be behind them

We don't expect them to, but they should be expecting it otherwise they are settling for mediocrity.

Stewart, Tomlinson and Cameron are all tall enough to do so, I'd say one of them.

Need someone who can hold there own in the strength department though... Cameron and Tomlinson are fairly lightly built, don't know enough about Stewart.

^ this.

Cameron only kicked 29 goals last year because of injury... he'll kick 70 this year ;)

it looks alright to me. I think the forward line is basically spot on, as is the midfield.

imo, when fit, Davis, Patful, Mohr and Shaw are all locks in our backs. Kennedy's defensive game is pretty rated by the coach as well. It annoys be to see scully there, since he should be on the bench and bugg in HB. Mohr's  out for a while with injury from memory, so it really comes down to who they go to replace him- hampton would probably leave us a little short, so I think they'd probably go for Haynes if fit, and plowman if not.

Who they play out of stewart, phillips and lobb up front really depends on preseason/ neafl form imo. Atm, if I had to call it, I'd say stewart, unless mumford really starts struggling.

I'd say Phillips is their 2nd best ruck quite comfortably.

I think the above will be their round 1 line up, with Haynes first emergency. WHE is best 22, Hampton and Haynes unlucky and Patton will push someone out.

Jack Steele a chance to play this week lads? Second successive week with BOG honours in the reserves, and the seniors got pumped, surely he gets a run?

If it's anything like Eagles with Colledge then he is no chance to play :P

I didn't see the game (fortunately I guess :P ) but it doesn't really look like it was our midfield that underwhelmed- Shiel, Ward, Whitfield, Scully, COniglio all performed reasonably and Griffen/ greene were hardly bad enough to drop. How the flower we did so terribly against such an undermanned team is pathetic though imo.

I guess Kelly might find himself out?

Actually, if Steele is to make his debut, after a couple of underwhelming weeks (albeit, he racked up in junk time v. GC) I'd say kelly's going.
Title: Re: GWS Best 22
Post by: kilbluff1985 on May 06, 2015, 12:29:34 AM
Steele might come in for Stewart and be the sub so WHE can get a full game
Title: Re: GWS Best 22
Post by: Money Shot on June 07, 2015, 10:40:03 AM
So for next week Steele is the player to come in if an injury occurs you would think?
Title: Re: GWS Best 22
Post by: Samsturmfels on August 22, 2015, 05:33:09 PM
Any reason why Mccarthy keeps being the sub?

chances of him or stewart leaving at the end of the year?
Title: Re: GWS Best 22
Post by: Nige on August 25, 2015, 11:04:03 AM
There's probably a chance that McCarthy (more so than Stewart) will leave.

They obviously have an abundance of talls and they unfortunately can't play them all.

He's from WA, so Freo might have a look at him, but a Victorian club needing a tall forward might think about it too.

I wouldn't be surprised to see at least one of the GWS talls leave in the offseason.

What do we think of Zac Williams?

socres huge when he plays unsubbed.

could be top 10.

Looks like a very promising rebounding half-back

As defensive premiums take a few weeks to ascertain, I'm starting with none;

Currently have; Yeo, Rosa, Malceski, Whitecross, E. Mackenzie, Mitchell Brown (Essendon) as my back six - with my first upgrade likely to be the leading defender at that time.

I'm considering whether I should free up some cash and upgrade Whitecross for Williams though

88 in his last 9 games.

if he gets that role he could easily average 90

I've gone Whitecross (will probably be injured) to Hibberd (a popular pick, but I don't see him getting a game at Nth Melbourne - if he does it would not be until the end of the season).

Then I went Malceski (cheap but risky) to Birchall (the safest starting defender I can think of)

Williams is a bit awkwardly priced (the Rosa to Yeo range)
