Rd 1 Team with Lever

Recommended Posts

Always a favourite for us dreamers - the Rd 1 side, selected four months out. As much chance of it coming up as ... Richmond winning the flag in 2017!

Now that we have got our man I thought I'd go for it. Note: I'm one who rates VDB because of his gruntwork and his scary tackling and, barring injury, I reckon he's a monte. 

B: Jetta Frost Hibberd

HB: Jones Lever Hunt

C: Brayshaw Oliver Lewis

HF: VDB T.Mac Nibbler

F: Garlett Hogan Petracca

Ru: Gawn Tyson Viney

Int: Salem, Harmes, Melky, Vince  

Emerg: O.Mac, Hannan, Maynard

Frost v OMac is going to be interesting over the preseason.  Frost polled surprisingly well in the BnF for the games he played, but Oscar does seem to be a favourite with the coaches.

 

Good to see a bit of depth developing across the board.

Only two pre-season matches this year and AFL X apparently, so VDB would probably need more time to get up to match fitness? Hannan for VDB IMO

Frost Hunt and Lever in the same backline would be awesome rebound. Coupled with Hibberd and Jetta who are elite, our backline is almost a strength now. What does this mean for Col Garland??  He's still on the list right?

It's funny because the coaches vote on the BnF. 

Frost polls bus Oscar doesn't.

Frost gets dropped Oscard doesn't.

Bingo - ish!

But what does this say about depth too , missing ABrayshaw, AVDB, Maynard, Hannan ?

That backline starts to look bloody good.

Poor old Neville Jetta not having to cover opponents 20cm taller than him because Lever is there to provide the well-timed chop-out.

Oscar not having to think too hard because now he can focus more on controlling his direct opponent.

Hibberd, Hunt and Salem all having much better opportunities to rebound because instead of a messy scrap after a rough spoil that doesn't fully clear the danger area, the incoming ball has been decisively cut off and fed out to them.

Funny thing, I think Lever coming in might just be the difference that gets Jetta an All-Australian nod.

B:        Jetta         O.Mc      Frost

HB:     Hibberd     Lever      Hunt

C:       Tyson       Jones     Vince

HF:   Melksham  T.Mc  Petracca

F:      Hannan    Hogan    Garlett

Foll:   Gawn,      Viney,    Oliver

Int: Lewis, Neal-Bullen, Brayshaw, Pederson

With many depth options (Stretch, Bugg, Harmes, Wagner, Weideman, Kent, Smith, Vanders).

It actually looks pretty good, eh. Even with assuming that Watts is not there.

No personal history at all.Jones has been a super player for us but he is selfish ,he turns the ball over too much,as does tyson

 

and when the game is on the line he does not communicate or stand up.

 

i am sick of him running round the back for a quick stat and then bombing the ball long to a contest

 

he needs to change the way he plays 

 

may be a half back roll is right for him in his last couple of years.i would play Maynard in the  in the midfield rotation ahead of jones and tyson

 

my view

Hopefully if all goes well I think with big preseasons from the likes of J. Smith, AVB and Maynard:

B:        Jetta      Omac      Frost

HB:      Lewis    Lever       Hibberd

C:         Gus       Tyson      Hunt

HF:      ANB       Tmac      Petracca

F:         Garlett   Hogan    Harmes

Fol:      Gawn     Oliver     Viney

Int: Jones, Maynard, AVB, J. Smith

- I really hope guys like Salem and J.Smith push to force older guys like Vince and Melksham to be depth players.

- I think Harmes at this stage is better then Hannan around the contest. He just adds a little bit more then Hannan who is a better loose HF. Better tackling and pressure and doesn't get knocked off the ball as much. I hope these two really battle to try to better one another for this spot.

Hard to tell until after the draft. 

Balic is someone who with a strong pre season might push for selection

I like this forward line, Melksham and Hannan have both shown some goal sense in congestion. Something that Harmes, ANB, AVB, Brayshaw, Bugg and a few of our other mids that can/have played as forwards all seem to lack. We need some of those guys in the team (and you have Gus/ANB your bench) but I think that we need Hannan and Melksham in the side until we get a decent small forward to go with Garlett. I still hold out a little hope that might be Kent, he has the talent, but the last 12 months haven't been very promising given his injury problems. Idk what DJ can achieve but id be shocked if he was in contention next year, but who knows.

Anyone who thinks we don't have depth - try fitting in Vandenburg, Harmes, Neal-Bullen, Garland and Bugg to name a handful.
