To be honest, I don't think we've really found the Bags replacement unless McNeice is good enough. And maybe not the Kelly replacement. McKenna and Ridley sound good for the rebound and intercepting roles, but for the lock down role I just can't see Gleeson doing it. Maybe Dea? You kind of want someone a bit more composed. Maybe Redman for the Kelly role?
In many ways, I hope the players develop so this could be our longer term back line (Hurley as the old man!):

I see Francis as the Hooker replacement (longer term) to be honest. Or at least I ■■■■■■ hope so.
