The three S’ — Saad, Smith and Stringer — walk straight into the Bombers’ best 22 — and rightly so. Saad, especially, is a handy acquisition, giving great support to Conor McKenna and allowing Rising Star Andrew McGrath the chance to move into the midfield more often. Michael Hartley’s excellent record over the past two years keeps Patrick Ambrose out, but watch out for Aaron Francis to make a move if he has a cracking start to 2018. James Stewart is a little unlucky, but he can blame the recruitment of Stringer for that.
