    Next year will be pretty interesting in a number of ways. Opposition coaches will have to decide whether negating Zaka is more damaging than taking the edge off a better player. Worsfold will have to juggle midfield minutes for a lot of players. Zaharakis will have to decide whether he'll have a good career or a very good one.
    There's a case that Zerrett this year has already passed all those guys, of course the test is to keep doing it year in, year out.

    I expect Robbo goes to Zaka though, when a guy has proven he can't beat a tag, you tag him until he does.

    Robbo goes to Zaka no question in my mind.

    If you had of said at the start of this year that Merrett would surpass all other midfielders you would have been laughed at. I still think Heppell has him covered but boy has he taken some big steps this year.

    In future... if I hype up a Bomber then we should just all get on them...

    I was very bullish on him and he's gone even higher than that. I thought he had a decent chance of being a 100-105/100-110 type guy in the two formats and he's gone 118 in DT, SC was spot on at least!

    I agree, I think Merrett is pretty much the complete midfielder for his size (doesn't have the aerial ability of a Pendles but has everything else you want). I was told by one of the players when he arrived that he'd be Luke Power but would take a while. He bloody well didn't!
    Never bet against Tom Rockliff

    Pretty hard to go past Rocky this week against Carlton, absolutely smashes them in the past few years.
    153, 95, 143, 184 RDT
    182, 97, 145, 204 SC

    Be a good one for you @Wogitalia in SC given he's a pod for you.
