The better teams have also had a settled lineup of options so they know where players a re likely to be and what their capabilities are.
Hawks have had Gunston, Brest, Rioli, Puopolo, Roughly.
Adelaide have had Tex, Betts, our ex-rookie listed player (name escapes me).
West Coast have had Le Cras, Kennedy, Darling.
Sydney have had Buddy, Tippett.
All have been in their forward line the last three years.
What have we had?
Joey D has been the only constant. Hurley for apart of one year. Hooker last year. Courtney Dempsey last year. Razza this year. Mitch Brown this year.
Who knows how it's going to look next year.
The forward line needs talented options to play with continuity to grow and learn together.
Obviously, the midfield talent needs to be better skilled at making decisions as well.
