JR’s best 22. Like everyone, I found this extraordinarily tough to do. My best 22 has 2 facets: Speed and Forward Looking.
A couple of positional changes. Setterfield I have put into the guts rather than on a wing. I think he could be anything. Time for him to take on more responsibility in the midfield group – we will be amazed by the results. Ditto Walsh. He is going to be a deadset superstar. Lets throw him into a rover position and let him go for it. Ed and Murphy are there as back up.
This leaves the wings open to bring in our most creative and pinpoint users of the football – SPS and Martin. I dont see us bringing in Mertin to solely be a forward. I do see him as “last kick in”.
TDK comes in for Cas, who despite his excellent season is relegated to emergency. We need to fast track TDK and I think he will see a lot of game time. Cas straight back in if there is a ruck, key back or forward injury. Very likely he will start round 1
McGovern rotates off the bench for H and Charlie.
