Good lord Zip...

From the looks of that there, maybe the best thing would be to just shut the doors and not play at all.

I suppose it might really help our injury list.

Reckon this is it with perhaps Pickett a late inclusion for Ellis.

Has similar attributes to Tim Kelly, dominated WAFL level, is physically mature ready made and has much incentive to make the grade. I’m confident when fit he will be a top 18 player for the Tiges

My guess as to how the club would see it, assuming no injuries AND everyone in peak form (two major ifs):

B: Grimes Asbury Vlastuin
HB: Short Rance Stack
C: McIntosh Martin Houli
HF: Edwards Jack Rioli
F: Bolton Lynch Caddy
R: Nank Cotchin Lambert
Int::Ross Prestia Balta Broad

Em: George Baker Choi (maybe - this is a hypothetical) Graham Ellis

If Pickett is what everyone seems to think then Rioli might be in trouble - could drop to Em.

I think they prefer Edwards forward of centre. If not, then swap with Stack.

The debatables there would be Short (but I have a strong impression they value him that much) , Rioli, McIntosh (but really having a good year overall). Also maybe omission of George but I just can't see him in given the other options. Bolton is that good, when he's good (and we've made the above assumption). Houli is getting old, but he's still in our best 22, doing what he does. Balta is there to give Nank a spell, plus shock value.

The rest I can't see ever being left out. Lynch is a definite in - a suggestion to the contrary above shocked me a bit.

That is a very strong team. Hitouts the only obvious concern.

Really hope you are right Gummy!

Has to learn the system too remember.
He’s 27 already so he better hurry up and learn the system. His talent and skill set is sufficient to be an exception to that rule if that’s the one mark against his name keeping him out of the side I would’ve thought.
