Back in Red and Black in 2018

Post by Lee on Thu Nov 02, 2017 11:35 am

A new era at the Bloods, with Gavin Colville taking over the reins from Mark Mickan.

One or two retirements, but this year will be driven by excitement and some very talented younger players, with a clear focus on the future.

It will be interesting to see if Jono Beech returns and it's obvious West need to reinforce their ruck and midfield stocks, as well as a key position player.

Those to watch:  Obviously the most talented youngster in Australia, Izak Rankine, as well as Isaac Johnson, Patrick Fairlie, Murray Waite and others.

Draft watch:  For a roughie, Chris Burgess, a Flinders Park 'come and try' player, now a key player and some AFL interest.


Prediction?  That's for others, who might say 6th to 9th.

Me? Somewhere between 1st and 3rd Very Happy

Between us, we've won the last 3 flags, Chambo.

Think there's a bit to like about the Bloods. Their crop of exciting youngsters made great strides onfield last season. I know there's some decent outs, but if they can add a couple of proven recruits, keep an eye on them.
