Talk about everything Essendon. Past, Present and Future if it's about the Bombers this is the place to be.

Excellent question sti

My take...

B: P. Ambrose, M. Hurley, M. Redman
HB: A. Saad, C. Hooker, C. McKenna
C: A. McGrath, Z. Merrett, D. Shiel
HF: D. Smith, S. McKernan, J. Stringer
F: O. Fantasia, J. Daniher, A. McDonald-Tipungwuti

Foll: S. Draper, D. Heppell, D. Parish

INT: M. Gleeson, A. Francis, M. Guelfi, K. Langford

EMERG: T. Cutler, T. Bellchambers, M. Brown
Face value appears decent.
But I think it's more complicated - as 22 depends who we're playing against.
That said...
I'd have Brown rather than McKernan. I feel he offers more in the way of workrate and connection between mids and forwards.
Not sure Draper is best 22 yet. He's still untried at AFL level.
And I really reckon Snelling should be in there. Maybe as Interchange rather than Gleeson. Thinking we are well covered enough defensively without Gleeson.
I think Snelling might be injured???????
Nothing usually happens until something happens.
