With Essendon’s banned players now returning to the club, we name the Bombers’ potential Round 1 line-up for season 2017.

B: James Kelly, Michael Hartley, Mark Baguley

What changes would you make to our side?


    • Belcho and Langford in for Brown and Ambrose

      Undecided yet on who plays out of Stanton, Bird, Hocking or Howlett but leaning towards Hocking…turn him into a rough, strong forward.

      Forward line way off
      Colyer, Daniher, Myers
      Watons (if he plays), Belcho/Langford, Tippa

      You know my thoughts on Hooker and Francis….SEND EM BACK!
