Next year, we will start the year with just 2 players 30 plus. Bags, & BJ.
We will blood all the kids we’ve been developing in the 2’s next year, and you’ll likely see Mutch Lav Lang Frang Begz and maybe one or two others, (Ridley, Redman etc) ending up part of the best 22 by years end. Along with McCool, Conor Zerret, Parra JD, Razzle, Stewie & The Gleek, U25 then Walla Green Dea Hepp Ambo Harts & Trav in the 25-26 bracket.
I just listed 18 - 20 players that could easily be part of the 22, aged 25 or under.
Hurls Hooksey,Zakka T Bell Myers and Bird are all that will remain in the 27 30 set.
With how many games of finals experience between them? Not to mention just big game experience for many.
We can fit McVeigh in, . and I’d be happy if he played just 12 - 15 games for the year, and then every final.
I get the injury thing, … but if we do get him, it will be because we believe we can manage him well, and/or don’t see them as necessarily chronic.
