#8 Ben Hobbs

Unfortunately for them, there are around 4 or 5 players who are just going to have to sit in queue and keep pushing in the 2nds till they get a chance. I rate Baldwin - just hard to fit him in. He’s building up close to Laverde, though, and that probably who he would replace.

You will probably be disappointed then when he is selected and lines up in R1.

“Taking the conservative approach” to Ben Hobbs, means no round 1 for him. At match comittee its an easy solution to the excess numbers of good players available at this point.

The Martin back / swap with Kelly combines a more decisive distributor by far with an insurance policy if multiple small forwards are cutting us up down back.

Rd 1 is March 16.
if its a 2 weeks injury as reported and he can do running, then no reason why he cant be in the frame for round 1 selection. It does mean that he may miss the practice matches, and if other guys perform well, it might be hard for him to be picked.

Suspect if Ben is fit and firing come round one, he’ll play. Irrespective of everything else.
