Alternatively i see Cotch and Prestia getting more bench time.
Say they did 65% each instead of 80%
Nearly 20 minutes less ground time each game.
Extend careers and allow them to play more burst /high intensity
Not sure about Meatball, but certainly Chimp, on for a stint and off, no resting on the field. His goal kicking ain't great and he's not that fast that he'll run down players.

Dusty doesnt run down players either.
Forward and back Chimpa will attack the ball like no ones business

True, but Dusty will brush off players and kick goals from any angle, Chimp doesn't have that in his bag.......struggles to kick a set shot from 35 out. Having said that some of his goals in finals have been second to none. 2017, against the Pussies, that spin and left foot out of the pack is one of my absolute favourites!!! And the C7 *smile*ers didn't even replay it.......still erks me to this day! Bristle screaming *goal of the game* and the *smile*ers didn't even replay it! :mad:

Maybe we should taper expectations a bit on Noah. He had a breakthrough year. But the pressure now goes up again with the fans expecting him to again play to that level.

History shows second year blues is a real thing. I do expect some dip in form at some stage in the year.

Give him time, Cumbo doesn't need to be a star immediately, he can develop. It is a very hard role he is expected to play, mid size forward must be close to the hardest position to hold down. Has shown enough to tell us he has the ability, seems to be willing to put in the work, hopefully has a lot of footy smarts because he will need it, but he will never have it easy and week in week out playing as a mid size forward is damned hard.
