I was just genuinely curious about our team for next year so thought I'd have a look. As far as I see it, the following guys own their positions, leaving what I count as 8 spots for grabs:

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________

FB: Baguley Hooker ______1
HB: Hibberd Hurley ______2
C:   Goddard Watson Colyer
HF: ______3 Carlisle ZMerrett
FF: ______4 Daniher ______5
Fol: _______6 Heppell Stanton
Bench: Hocking Myers Zaharakis ______7

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________

My thoughts are as such:

1. We NEED a third tall desperately! Pears and Steinberg don't seem like filling Fletch's spot, and Gwilt is no superstar.

2. A running half back who can also defend. Currently Dempsey/Gleeson. Would like to see a Dalgleish/Aylett/Ashby/Browne seriously press for regular games there.

3. A half forward who can push into the midfield (Chappy's old spot?). Hopefully Laverde or Langford.

4. A decent small forward who chases and harrasses. A fit Kommer would slot in nicely. Would like to see Fantasia and Hams press, but neither are the small chasing forward type.

5. A third tall (Ambrose) or a back-up ruckman (McKernan). Both just need to find that extra 5-10%.

6. Bellchambers? Giles? Any ruckman who isn't a spud?

7. Cooney sure as hell won't be playing reserves.

Players who I haven't named: would like to see Edwards take the step up, seems a classy livewire type. Howlett and Melksham have been far from our worst performers, but I'd love to see Kavanagh, JMerrett or O'Brien overtake them.

Winderlich won't be around, and hopefully we'll have a nice new draftee or two that can put some pressure on spots. What's this about a rebuild? If a few of these not-quite-22 players can finally step up we'll have quite a tidy (and much younger) list.

<this age bracket> We need 6-8 of these guys playing every game for the rest of the year.
Browne, Alex 22yr 10mth
Steinberg, Ariel (R) 22yr 10mth
Merrett, Jackson 22yr 4mth
Kavanagh, Elliott 22yr 1mth
Dalgleish, Lauchlan 22yr
O'Brien, Nicholas 22yr
Edwards, Shaun 21yr 6mth
Ashby, Jason 21yr 1mth
Hams, Will 20yr 11mth
Gleeson, Martin 20yr 10mth

Don't play Dempsey or Gwilt. Whether you get rid of them depends on how many spots we need at the end of the year.

Jackson Merrett, Marty Gleeson, Ashby are all a bee's dick off our best 22.

Kav and O'Brien are probably getting close to their final season, now is the time with Watson out. They just need to take that last little step and play like they do in the twos. PLAY BROWNE NOW! before he flowerin injures himself again.

Fantasia and McKenna = superstars in the making

After today's efforts, I think Steinberg is more than adequate to be that third tall in defence. Very good play by him today

No point having Carlisle on your list. The man doesn't even look like he's enjoying it out there.

Pretty hard to enjoy being out there when you're not actually out there

I think Gleeson definitely can hold down that HBF spot, once he adds a few kegs to his body he'll be very good. Has very good composure down back and seems to usually be a part of scoring chains, whenever we actually get the chance to get one together
