Someone with ability may want to create a poll.
I’m on Taranto.
Reckon he’s going to win a B&F by the time he’s finished. Ready to explode

Tough one.

Just seeing some of Hoppers highlights, looks like I might have underestimated him.

Better kick and mover than I thought.

Bring on 2023.

Well together with your B&F prediction for Tarranto & Dermie's for Hopper it's Winner Winner Chicken Dinner:).

I'll go Hopper only because his explosiveness may provide the better highlight reel.

Ultimately, it may in fact be your man Shai who is the big winner @caesar ... how's any team gonna be able to put the clamps on all of them.
But, to answer the thread question, I too think Hopper just because he's a better kick.

Hopper has a few tricks, maneuvers in and out of traffic. Totanto for his $$$ is a terrible kick, would love him to run and handball more than kick it.

If his forward craft can improve, Taranto could be in the upper echelons of midfielders in the competition.

Not sure who of them will be better but the 1 area I'm really looking forward for improvement is in ball ups (and throw ins) ie. contests in our D50. I don't know where to get the figures from (not even sure they are available to plebs like us) but I would think we would rank pretty high in scores conceded from D50 stoppages. This is where IMO our defensive side will see the biggest benefit and I'm really looking forward to seeing it. Hopper in particular will be massive from this perspective.

can't split them apart, but that is not the question to ask, it's "how good will they make Richmond", heaps, unmeasurable, material high end impact

I just want one of them to be considered a Tiger champ by the time he's done - and the other one to be the better player
