I think that’s a fantastic idea.

Who are the Socceroos' best of the rest?

It was difficult to leave Laird out of the team, but I had to pick Darcy Parish.

Thanks Daniel, for giving me an opportunity to write on The Roar. Good luck with your future endeavours.

That’s a good idea. An added bonus is that Membrey is a good leader.

That’s a fair enough explanation.

Who would you have selected from Hawthorn?

Thanks for your input. Who would you have had in your team in the positions that you mentioned?

Thanks for that Dingo. Took a lot of effort; if you change one player then it impacts the entire team structure!

The Bulldogs still need to bolster their defence.

The one player each AFL club should poach after Round 11

As a Collingwood supporter, I wouldn’t mind trading Braden Sier for Zach Merrett, what do you think of that trade?

Who would you take out of the team?

Is a change as good as a holiday?

Of course I rate Isaac Heeney highly, but I was just concerned due to him playing just six games in season 2020. The following substantiates that I rate him highly: https://www.theroar.com.au/2020/11/29/the-five-players-your-team-cant-afford-to-lose-sydney-west-coast-and-western-bulldogs/

The order of merit: Sydney Swans 2021 season

Thanks for your informative opinion.

The order of merit: Richmond Tigers 2021 season

Nathan Broad is a player that was strongly considered. Your opinion is valid.

Who would you take out of the Tigers order of merit in order to include Broad?

He finished 9th in the best and fairest in season 2020.

The order of merit: Carlton Blues 2021 season

You make a valid point

The order of merit: Hawthorn Hawks 2021 season

Nathan Broad was a player that was considered, however he only played 16 out of 21 games in season 2020 and just scrapes into the Tigers best 22 in season 2021.

Do you think the Kangaroos will get the wooden spoon in season 2021?

The order of merit: North Melbourne Kangaroos 2021 season

That’s an informative opinion. A player that certainly came under consideration to be a part of the 11 players chosen, was Nathan Broad.

Given that Broad only played 16 of 21 games in season 2020.

He was a player that I’m surprised doesn’t get talked about more, but he just scrapes into the Tigers best 22 in season 2021.

That’s a fair comment, but I think Charlie Dixon is going to be past his best in season 2021.

I would like Cunnington to be back to his best; https://www.afl.com.au/news/544926/back-in-business-roos-bullish-on-star-mid-after-horror-2020

I am still unsure whether he will back to his best as he had a serious back injury in season 2020; https://www.afl.com.au/news/485127/season-over-roos-finally-put-a-line-through-gun-midfielder

Tarryn Thomas did fit the criteria as he featured in six games in season 2020, kicking at least a goal in just two of the six games, so I didn’t select him.

Both Cunnington and Thomas are in the best 22: https://www.sen.com.au/news/2021/02/26/your-clubs-best-22-heading-into-the-2021-season/

I don’t know what to expect of Cunnington. I am big fan of him as a player, but am worried whether he can recapture his form. Hopefully he can prove me wrong, as at his best there is no one that works harder than him in the North Melbourne Kangaroos and with regards to Thomas; hopefully he can also prove me wrong, but it appears as if fit and available he is in the North Melbourne Kangaroos best 22.

Very informative. There will definitely be competition for spots!

The order of merit: Gold Coast Suns 2021 season

Conca didn’t even finish in the top 10 in the best and fairest in season 2020.

Taberner finished sixth in the best and fairest in season 2020 and I believe in his ability, but I’m merely concerned that his preseason injury will hinder him playing to his optimum level. Hopefully, you are right as I rate him highly as a player.

The order of merit: Fremantle Dockers 2021 season

Thanks for the informative comment.
