Title: West Coast 2017 season mega banter thread

Time to start the talk for the season proper now
Seems to be some decent competition for spots down in defence this year,good thing means the boys will be desperate to hold their spot in the team which should push them to perform well.

Rucks obviously our biggest issue, if Nic Nat and Lycett were fit I'd say we finish top 2.  Just Lycett fit then prob top 4.  I think we finish 5-6 with our current ruck stocks, but might still sneak into that top 4 hopefully.

Ruckmen are overrated, especially with Priddis, Mitchell and Shuey on the ground. Would be nice to be fed by NN but not having him there won't hurt.

I'd say your fortunes rest with Wellingham, Masten, Sheed. Guns gonna gun, but it will be the 16th-24th men that dictate your fate. Don't think the Iggs had a top 2 list even if the rucks were fit and firing.

I agree to an extent, however NicNat is our most influential, dynamic player. Not having him is going to force us to change the way we play slightly.

Mitchell, Priddis, Shuey, Gaff though - pick who to tag of that lot!

Got everything crossed that Yeoy can start taking games by the scruff of the neck more, and guys like Masto and Redden are able to contribute week to week. The midfield is so damn important for us.

Yeah some time last year, told the club he wanted to keep it on the low down so they didn't make it public

Great news though, he is our most important player by a country mile
