    Good effort Cal, considering the lack of quality to work with (other than those big 3). Top work mate, have a 🍺 to recover😄
    Who would you say are the top 3 breakout contenders for 2021? Would dawn and roy generally agree, or engage in a 3 hour argument with you?

    ( please please please record it if this Barney happens- for our entertainment)

    As a dees fan I believe we will get the best out of Oskar baker this year. With Tomlinson moved to the back line, he will be used as a wingman as he has speed and great endurance. I think he might be a sneaky option if he gets a start and cements his spot. The only issue is his starting price.
