Who will explode in 2018

Postby parkeysainter » Thu 07 Sep 2017 8:45pm

Barring unforeseen injuries or circumstances, I'm tipping the following young fellas will explode in 2018 in a big way:
Membrey, Acres, White, Gresham, Billings, Dunstan, Steele, Sinclar (no particular order). If only 3 or 4 of them have a breakout season like Seb Ross this year then the side will improve on a massive scale.

I have a sneaky but more hopeful feeling that Long, Freeman, Goddard and Paddy will follow suit in a much smaller capacity but will ramp it up in 2019. Battle and Rice might take until 2020.

Time for the kids to take the next step.

I don't feel confident about any of those going up a gear next year.
Steele might get stronger in the gym over the pre-season, as he is in the ideal age to bulk up; but I don't see him exploding.

The rest could improve slightly, only if the club snags not one but two big fish.
One will make a difference.
Two biggies can have a massive impact because it will affect the whole team and the game plan can be followed much better
when 2 players are highly skilled- it has a flow-on effect.
One star will help, but the other 21 guys skill levels will suck the life out of him.

The Irish kid. Interesting. I find them to be natural footballers. Even more than some of the kids from suburban Melbourne that have been playing since Auskick.

You think no-one can break in to our side because we are so good?

Plenty of opportunities.

BT's gut
"Understand that you are all custodians of the St Kilda Football Club...you are responsible for making the difficult decisions to make this Club great. Those decisions will not always be popular, for popular decisions are easily made - but those that will truly make us great are those that challenge us most." - Allan Jeans as told to Chris Pelchen 2012.

Would love to see Ray Connellan rebounding on the switch off half back and running wide through the clearances. The kid has some toe. Also seems capable of and committed to beating his opponent. With Roberton reaching AA status and Carlisle consistently pulling down intercept marks, Ray could provide the gun powder we need to canon off half back. This could also take some pressure off Steven.

To be honest, if White, Connellan and Freeman come on and show some effective disposal it seems Newnes, Gilbert, Weller and Geary will be counting on experience to keep there spots and Jimmy Webster will have to be very consistent.
