The posted squad does not look very strong to me ......when you take in the fact that you have to field 17 players (team plus bench) for each game. So where does the strength in depth come from if we pick up two or three injuries and we have another one or two playing below form or  carrying knocks.

Looks very thin on the ground to me .... VERY THIN  !!

Don't think we can possibly have a full squad here .......apart from an abundence of wingers that is.

Not  easy  picking  our  strongest  17  until  we've  seen  everyone  play  IMO.

Our strength is int he versitility of the players i.e mcavou Second Row L/F or Centre.  Leroy back row or half back.  Rudd S/O centre or LF etc

We are def lacking any depth beyond the first 19 or so players which is why I think we should be getting a quality oversaeas player in who can cover a number of positions.

My first 17

GB
Calvert
Jackson
Elibeck
Maski  - I hope
Rudd
Duffy
Edmondson - I hope
Mattinson
Fletch
Miller
Mcavoy
Sice
Hill
Jacko
Joe

Back up Finch , Adise, Mcdonald, Teare and Wright  beyond that we are striggling IMO for any quality at all.

You put teare and wright in and say were struggling considering fordy is better than both of them and bens to go in,i no its still not alot of strength in depth but there is still couple of others who could make the grade given a chance.
