Dunn & Hoskin-Elliott depth IMO.
Cox in the twos and come in for injuries. I just think with the recruitment of Mayne they will play white/Moore with Mayne the Third tallish forward. Or leave white out for Cox.
Clokes was surely a better forward than White or Cox. I wonder how the clokes think about collingwood now?
Need to send a mid to the half back flank, thats why DeGoey is there, Although he did kick a lot of goals last year so might be better used up forward.
They have sold the farm for the midfield, so need to win the midfield battle to be a chance to win. Defence is lacking a bit of experience and Forwardline hasnt probably played that much together so will be inconsistent.
Varcoe and Wells together should provide some speed on the outside, but can they stay on the park?
Given pies ins/Outs I would expect them to improve to the 8-13th position.
I would give them a sneaky chance to make the finals but expect them to linger outside the top 8. Lets Say 11th.
Im not sure moving from 12th to 11th would be enough for Buckley to keep his job though.???
We better beat this mob they are average. Just need to shut Pendelbury and Treloar down.
