Hard to argue with that. Swap Jack and Tom maybe but that’s nitpicking.

Not counting Rance & with Ellis gone can see Stack coming in for Ellis. Ross getting the nod over Caddy . Short still in with Graham out.

Only change I would make would be Short for Baker.
During the year I would rest Cotchin/Reiwoldt/Houli for a game or two and give the kids game time while preserving our champs for the finals.

Thought I'd have a crack at it and then couldn't figure who to leave out in multiple positions. Can't remember a time when we've had a stronger list.
Reckon our senior club advisor will spend most of his year giving blokes on the outer a cuddle!

Castagna is vital, he creates. Would be fantastic if he could kick better for goal, but he adds so much else . . . and he sometimes kicks straight!

Love Ross and what he has shown but Caddy is a must.
Has runs on the board and would be a staggering decision to drop him.

You nailed 25/26.
RCD very lucky to be named ahead of Graham.
Jack graham that is.

If he kicked straighter he actually could become that more important.
I had him in my best 5 on the ground on GF day.
His kao's running patterns torn GWS a new one.
If, just if he had just kicked 2 or 3 we might today be a Norm Smith medallist.

Yep if he kicked 3 he'd definately have been in the conversation.

I'm wrapt Dusty got ther Norm Smith though because now he has 1 Brownlow and 2 Normies and 2 Premiership Medallions, compared to Dangerflogs 1 Brownlow,

Watched the Dream time game yesterday. Pissin rain n slippery as buggery. Georgie nails two shots at goal from the boundary from opposite sides of the ground. One a hook from in close n the other a longer from 40 / 45 out. Never looked like missing them, come Grannie day n he sprays shots everywhere in perfect conditions. Could easily have been wearing Normie at the end of the day but he had the lovable doofus in full swing.

Grand Final side with Stack in for Bobble.

Graham will likely be underdone post shoulder reconstruction.

Ross will be around the mark for the season opener and Grover also likely will Balta depending on what they have planned for him. Naish too might be a chance if he impresses over summer.

Of course injuries suspensions etc will play their part.

dangerfield isnt in Martin’s class.
Ive lost count how many times Dusty has preformed in big games.
There is a reason Adelaide & Geelong havent got to the big dance. Because Mr Dangerfield saves his mediocre games against real sides in September.

Looking forward to Pickett playing midfield allowing Dusty to play more forward like he did the in the GF, they wont get near us.
