Their list management deserve huge praise for this premiership favouritism. They were lacking speed around the ball but the recruitment of Tim Kelly, Daulhaus, Rohan, Miers and Atkins has added some speed and high pressure to the ball carrier into the team. Something they have been missing over the last 3-5 years.

At this point, it's Geelong's flag to lose

We’ve definitely struggled against the swing of the duke over there, does the white ball have as much movement?

A SWOT analysis of Australia's mission to retain World Cup

I do understand the argument of “who else is there realistically” besides the Lakers in terms of the AD trade. However, if I were the Pelicans, I wouldn’t be too sure about committing to the Kuzma, Lonzo, Ingram and future picks offer. As I stated above Ingram is suffering from a rather severe injury and Lonzo only makes it out onto the court for 50% of the games per season. It is a difficult dilemma that New Orleans face, either take what’s on the table (even if it isn’t what they deem an equal, balanced trade) or lose him for nothing come the end of the 2019/20 season.

The Lakers' season is over, it’s time to move on

I agree, they need to score runs before being picked. They have the opportunity to do so with multiple tour matches before the start of the Ashes series. In terms of the squad we take over there, would you include Bancroft back into the test set up? He’s been scoring runs and has the ability to play the “defensive” opener role we needed during the India series.

Australia's not looking second-rate now!

I just like the thought that Brayshaw can take his game to the next another level. Has all the attributes to do so. His brother Andy for Fremantle looks a very promising type as well.

1. With the recent development of Brandon Ingram’s injury (deep vein thrombsis), the same injury that ultimately ended the career of Chris Bosh. Alongside Lonzo Ball’s struggle to be fit, he’s only played 97/164 games in his two seasons in the league. Do you think the Lakers have the pieces to trade for Anthony Davis at this point? I find it unlikely that New Orleans will be willing to take on two players with the injuries/injury tendency that Ingram and Ball carry, even if the lottery pick is included in the package.
2. With this free agency class being stacked with talent. Which player/s can you see realistically signing for the Laker?

It’ll be interesting to see where the Giants end up using Finlayson this season. I know they liked his distribution by foot in the defensive half but with the return of Williams, they may look to use his explosive kicking more and potentially push Finlayson into the forward (3rd tall with Patton out?). Chayce looked great in the JLT, looks like he could play the small, high pressure forward role that Adelaide struggled to fill last season after Charlie Cameron left.

Hey James,

If you’re happy to leave Warner and Smith out of the ashes team. What does your current 15 man squad look like?
