It's hugely important this next wave of kids come on this season & push former premiership players out if we're to challenge for a flag.
If they can't forget it.

If it's correct that Lambert is investing time into Riley, I've selected him more in hope than for any other reason. Always felt if he gets to a point where he believes he belongs, he might well become a consistent performer.

Reckon the 23rd man has done Ross no favours and stating the obvious, the lack of development continuity due to covid, has slowed all of their progression.

Im with Taz on Dow. I reckon hes head and shoulders above the rest of them, and without an appendix, we'll see the best of him in '22

Dow for me. I feel he has something that will make him a very good player for us.

I'm with you on Dow. He has something about him for sure, and with a proper pre-season this year, reckon he will hit the ground running.

I think Dow will end up the best , however I think Hugo will play from rd 1 next season , simply because he’s built more ready to go imho

We might have to book several others in for appendectomies if that leads to improvement.
Probably what essendrugs should have done. *smile* the supplements drugs

What RCD has played some very good patches Might be more on hope because if he is a regular good performer he gives our midfield a different look

if sailors take out perfectly good appendix, I don't see any reason we cant lighten a footballers load?

Hoping RCD but reckon Hugo and Dow are good chances too.

Ross an outside chance if the form slump was related to Fyfe stepping on his ankle.

No Mansell on the list or do we just expect him to be best 22 now! Love this kids hardness and his tackles usually stick. I suspect Josh Ward - our first pick will play the most games! :LOL:

RCD is the slow burn but the fire will ignite imo. Saw enough in 2021 to be confident he can play very well at AFL level but what he needs is a big preseason to build a tank and a decent dose of self belief.

Not enough love for Ross. Better exposed form than anyone else on that list. Wins the ball inside and on the outside. Played more games than the rest of that list combined. Only turned 21 in September and apparently, doesn’t need one of the senior players helping him meet the minimum fitness requirements of an AFL player despite being in the system for 3 years.
