Winning B & F: Jack Viney
What does your team need to improve: Turnovers, ball use going i50
What impressed you so far: Ball movement, scoring ability
What player has surprised you: Josh Wagner
Who needs to lift: Pretty tough one actually, would like to see a bit more out of Brayshaw but he is only a 2nd year, Garland needs to lift though if he wants a spot in the team (I really don't want him there though), and Grimes needs to lift or he faces a delisting at the end of the season
Who will we see make an impact soon: PETRACCA
What player would improve your club: someone like Deledio, Gaff, Pendles etc to give us better ball use through the middle of the ground. Salem or Brayshaw could develop into this though. Cameron or Lynch would also be useful to support Hogan while Weideman develops

AFL standards?

Who will win the Coleman: Buddy

Mate, I nearly had a heart attack and started plans to find out where you lived so we could have a chat about this question, "Who will you trade Fyfey to: Sloaney". Then I realised it was fantasy/supercoach talk and not who you would trade to bring Fyfe to the crows ;) pheew! lol.
