    Be mindful Taranto/ Cogs / Kelly
    Great players when the team is up and about
    Last year gave us an insight into where GWS is heading as a team
    With Cameron and Williams do GWS stay outside the eight and if so does this affect scores?
    No locks for me

      Big call to go without any of them though, especially the value of Preuss, taranto and even guys like Whitefield

    Sorry without Cameron and Williams

      Guys I would be mindful of Taranto, unless we hear he was still suffering with pain or movement restriction in the second half of the year when he played. Why then, the 20pts + down. A representation of the team as a whole having a bad year, other?

      Calvin, your right buddy. Taranto is not a “no brainer”. He is though, worth considering

    Preuss is the no brainer
    I will go him for sure
    rest I’m happy to wait on !

    Whitfield I will bring in ASAP or may start him but I need to see where he lines up this year
    I’d like to see him play a dusty like role forward of centre
    That is what GWS need both him and Toby rotating through the middle and resting forward
    With Taranto and Ward through middle resting back
