List build - where are we? Where are we going next


#2717

Do Gleeson and Redman fit into the back line?


#2718

Gleeson. Hooker. Redman
Saad. Hurley. McKenna

Missing a small shut down type like a Bags or Dea type. Or, maybe Red can do that role?


#2719

Dea is bigger than Saad or McKenna.


#2720

Mason is a winger and I hope he gets more time up the ground


#2721

Yeah, was pinning those two as the quick half backs that run off rather than closing down a Betts type.


#2722

Sounds good. He’s going to have some competition there and that’s great.


#2723

He’s 2cm taller than McKenna…


#2724

Happy to keep Baggers for another year


#2725

Unless we become Ruthless on players where going nowhere, yes they have been good footballers but they have also been paid.


#2726

Alright, so I don’t know which player you are referring to, but the post above mentioned Baguley.

I absolutely had Baguley in the cannon at the start of the year. But his forward work has been a revelation. If you think keeping him is in some way not being ruthless enough, then I would argue that your point of view is 100% wrong.


#2727

It’s fkn rough since he’s going so well but I just really don’t see the point of keeping Baguley. With Joe and Begley back next year there should be no room for him, and the depth should be Houlahan/Green/Laverde (though I see Lav as a mid)


#2728

Bags is way ahead of Begley as a forward. Way ahead. He definitely plays next year.
Begley has played 8 games. He can keep developing - in the magoos if he can’t push someone out by performing.


#2729

Personally I think playing Bags instead of Begs would be a monumental error


#2730

They can both be on the list, and in the same team.

Bags should totes be on the list next year, and considering Begs is coming back from a knee reco he won’t be a certain starter and I’d prefer he spent some time in the two’s honing his midfield craft.


#2731

I’d be keeping both Bagley and Goddard next year.


#2732

Yeah… so compared to Mckenna… he isn’t a ‘small’, is he?


#2733

Prepare yourself then. While Begley hones his midfield craft.


#2734

I assumed Baguley’s knee problems would have gradually made him a liability by now…due to loss of mobility.

But he appears to be moving OK. Moving better than the much younger Green…IMO, that probably flips the decision on their futures.


#2735

I think Begley should spend the summer in the midfield group and first half of next year in the VFL as the inside mid. I have no doubt he will break into the AFL midfield by mid season.


#2736

Replacing who?
