    Which Player are you looking forward to seeing in 2021

    We have had two threads on players under pressure and who needs to improve. This thread is about which player are you looking forward to seeing in 2021.

    Most will say JUH, but who else are you excited about?

    I am really wanting to see how Vander has improved and can he take the next step and become a consistent, fast paced HFF/Wingmen in the best 22.

    Naughton with an injury free run.
    I'd lik to see how Keath goes too after 12 months in our system. He was a huge success for mine but little talked about.

    Yep, Naughton for me as well. He is capable of winning games and we need him in full flight

    Praying that English has developed some core strength.
    Our 1954 premiership players are our heroes, and it has to be said that Charlie was their hero.

    For me there are two.

    Caleb Daniel. Huge season for him. During 2020 he showed if you give him time and space he will cut you up which was shown by him wining our B&F and Geary also sitting on him during our Elimination final. I am really keen to see if we play him of HB again or look to move him to a hybrid midfield / attacking role. If we do play him off HB I am looking forward to see how he works through the tag and how his teamates and coaches ensure he can still use his disposal to great effect.

    The other is Lachie Hunter. He is a seriously good footballer and who is vital to our makeup.
    I'm not sure most posters realised his importance to our team until he was missing. I know I certainly didn't.
    I'm putting blind faith that he will be training extremely hard and take his game to another level and win his second B&F.

    For me, Josh Dunkley. Will he stand up, play his best football and become the powerhouse we all know he can be.

    Garcia for me.

    Could he become one of those Richmond like small pressure forwards?

    I'm bundling all the midfielders into one and can't wait to see how we try and balance the seemingly abundant talent we have running through there.

    Jacko and Smith look like the guys who will have to play outside for us more than they may be used to, so these are the guys I'll be watching to see if they can adapt.

    As for the bookends, Bruce and Young have the capacity to contribute more thoroughly and I really hope they do.

    Has Jacko ever played outside in his life?
