Pretty good. Though I'd have Dinger for Lucas, Kreuzer for Casboult then Warnock for Kreuzer, McLean for Carrazzo and Armfield for Docherty.

Point is, we're starting to develop a best 30, rather than a best 16-18.

You're a brave man Roy, I reckon I could wait until a week before Rnd 1 and still get 4-5 selections wrong !!

I think we are building good depth, and picking a best 22 is going to be difficult and vary a lot from person to person.

I might have a go at some stage, but not now !!

Thanks Cagman. I used it and couldn't find room for Armfield, Carrazzo, Rowe, Casboult, McInnes, Bell, White, or quite a few others in our starting 22 or even as a sub ?? I'm not sure if that is a good thing or a horribly bad thing. :o

It's good Mants - by mid season 2014 the competition for a senior spot will be intense.  ;D

It'll be interesting to see who plays more games, Laidler or Everitt ?!!

The guy has shown he can play either end, take a serious contested grab, kick goals and hold down a spot in the Swans' team.

Let's see how Jeremy goes up there?

They might match up on each other if Everitt swings forward. ;)

I think the starting 22 looks more settled this year in the second year under Mick. In a team that lacked run I think the biggest opportunity is adding Thomas and Walker to the wings. Two elite runners would make a massive difference. There is a bit more cover down back with McInness/Docherty effectively 2 new recruits.

The biggest black hole is CHB. Unfortunately I think Hendo will start there. Either Casboult takes the next step at CHF or Watson does at CHB.

I think you'll find Everitt will start as a forward. I like White in the team because he can take a turn on one of the bigger opponents and Armfield will start as our defensive forward.

FB: Scotland, Jamison, White
HB: Tuohy, Henderson, Simpson
C: Thomas, Gibbs, Walker
HF: Everitt, Casboult, Armfield
FF: Garlett, Waite, Yarran
R: Kreuzer, Murphy, Judd
IC: Carrazzo, Robinson, McLean, Docherty

E: Menzel, McInnes, Lucas, Bootsma, Curnow, Menzel, Rowe, Ellard, Bell, Warnock, Cachia

Lot of competition for places but we had that last year too - only it turned out to be mostly mediocre players competing with none of them really taking the next step.

I just had a bit of a play and came up with this !!

It's not really a best 22 or a rnd 1 22, TBH I'm not really sure what it is !! Probably more so what I would like to see at some stage.

Carlton 22

FB, Simpson, Jamison, Everitt
HB, Touhy, Henderson, Docherty
C, Thomas, Gibbs, Yarran
R, Kreuzer, Bell, Murphy
HF, Menzel, Waite, Judd
FF, Walker, Casboult, Garlett

INT, McLean, Armfield, Cripps, Robinson

Northern Blues

FB, Bootsma, Watson, McInnes
HB, Duigan, Giles, Scotland
C, Lucas, Curnow, Buckley
R, Warnock, Carrazzo, Graham
HF, Temay, Rowe, Holman
FF, Ellard, White, Reynolds

INT, Woods, Cachia, Johnson, Sheehan

Emg, Bryne

A few thoughts;

There is some really good flexibility in our 1st team, I think MM would be happy with that.

I would love to see Judd spend a lot more time out of the centre square. If the likes of Bell and Cripps can step up in that area, I think it might really help Juddy's game.

While Walker and Everitt are interchangeable, I think I prefer Walker forward and Everitt back.

I'm hoping that Docherty can come in and play Yarran's run and carry role off half back straight away. Yarran to play on the wing or forward of centre.

No Scotland or Carrazzo in the 1st 22, they will need to force a younger player out to get a game, either way it's healthy competition !!

I think we have a really potent forward line, Caboult as a stay at home FF, Waite and Walker as the leading forwards. Menzel and Garlett are both class, and a number of goal kicking mids to fill the last spot.

The backline has height, flexability and experience. My biggest issue with our backline this year is it's coach !! Barker.

From the NB's, Buckley stood out to me as the player I would really like to press hard and make a claim for a spot in our 1st 22
