Pick your best 22 - PART 7 - End of season

OK, so here it is, the final 'best 22' for the year.

We've seen how the side performed in finals.
We saw what worked and what didn't all throughout the year.
Using all the information we got, who is in your best 22 now.

Lets assume all players are fit (excluding Williams and Philp to be consistent)
Lets assume all players are still on our list (including delistings, retirees and potential trades)


Pick your best 22.

I think the biggest tell in these surveys isn't so much who gets a vote, but who doesn't.

Bit of both.

It shows you who your 'first picked' are.
Who your 'there or thereabouts' players are
and
Who your 'not good enough' players are.

Its a bit of a 'wisdom of the masses' kinda thing.

It's going pretty much as I expected.
Some definites, a few with the split vote...
Surprises...perhaps Fogarty
Seemed to have the coaches support for the job he was doing up until the end, but not a lot of love here at the moment.
Marchbank eased his way back into the side by the end of the year.
Lots of support.
At his best he can be a valuable member of the defence
Hopefully an injury free 2024.
Young has had a poor year, he was probably in  most folks best 22 at the start..not sure what the future holds for him.

I had 26 in my side the first time through.
Struggled to trim it down in the end, and I'm not sure I could create a balanced 22 with the players I selected.
Best 22, and a balanced 22 is a slightly different thing.

Ironicly on Marchbank, i did the reverse.
I had him in the team early on (against the trend) and have him out of the team at the end.

100% votes for

- Crippa
- Gov
- TDK
- Blacres
- Doch
- Walsh
- Martin
- Weiters
- Charlie
- Saad
- Cotters

Thats 12 with 100% votes - looks about right.  I'd say the only surprises are Cotters in everyone's team (shows how important he is to our structures)  and H out of 1 person's team.   The rest you would pick before the vote was done

Given all the argy bargy on this site I'm surprised that TDK is 100% so far and not Pitto, it suggests people do not truly believe what they post!

Not a fan of 'best 22'. Rather a kind of 'core' and then those who are important and rotated for team balance, which factors in form and injury. For this little black duck it's a best 28.
Core (first picked if fit):
Acres
Cerra
Cripps
Curnow
Doc
Gov
H
Hewett
Martin
Newman
Pitto
Saad
TDK
Walsh
Weitering

Rotated through for team balance/need to cover injuries or form loss of core blokes:
Boyd
Cincotta
Cottrell
Cuningham
Fogarty
Hollands
JSOS
Marchbank
Motlop
Owies
Kemp
Kennedy
Williams

Only our ruthless best, from Board to bootstudders will get us no. 17

Maybe you just don't comprehend it. ;)

I think this was the first time i've picked TDK in my best 22 all year....and that was off the back of some (finally) improved form  as a forward and around the ground.

He would've been top 25-30 all year, but couldn't squeeze him in.

TDK did some ok stuff forward later in the season, provided some options and can kick straight unlike Harry, that why I had him in and Harry out.
Pittonet is a required player to soften up the opposing ruckman for TDK imho, think we saw the awkward Cox doing the same in the finals making it easier for the slightly out of form Cameron to be more effective later in the game

Thats a great core of 28 - i would add small-Durds to it - and make it 29

plus you have a couple of incoming players (pick 16, a free agent/trade etc) and   binns/cowan/young/carroll that we hope to see improvement from

it SHOULD be a good solid 30-35 players to form a good squad

I can comprehend there was a lot of anti-ruck duo discussion on this site, and this survey shows 85% picked a ruck duo, with associated assertions of players being overpaid while underperforming.

So it seems like the noise was coming from a very very noisy minority.
