Having just watched us dismantle them on replay, I honestly don’t get the hullabaloo about them in 2018. Rockliff is a solid citizen granted, but the other recruits are flaky at best IMO.
Motlop is good on his day but his day is one in 5-6.
Watts has never been noted for his consistency as evidenced by his poor showing in the last 8 Melbourne B & F awards.
Trengove has hardly played in 3 years and was used as depth at Melbourne.
Lindsay Thomas, well, say no more.
I actually think they will miss Trengove who went to the Dogs. Although they wanted to put time into Marshall late in the season, Trengove was still a solid player for them for much of the season.
They bashed up on the weaker teams & struggled against the heat the quality teams put them under and I don’t see that changing in 2018.
Boak looks slow to me. Was he hurt last year? He’s 30 next year so unlikely to get better.
Robbie Gray is a gun but how’s he going to come back from his latest scare? Hope he regains his health quickly but who knows how that will impact his pre season from a footy sense.
Their fixture will be more difficult than last year too. I’m just not sold on them being in the window like so many others think.
