A Vic State side?
Give it some thought, I had a quick go just then but I'll have a more serious go in another week or two and might try to find a few Devils, Scorpions and Boroughs to put in as well! But still, who would you say is set from the one I put below? B: Steve Bailey (BH), Troy West (Williamstown), Andrew Pugsley (BH) HB: Jordan Doering (Bendigo), Dean Talbot (Coburg), Leigh Carlson (Coburg) C: Andrew Eccles (N Ballarat), Julian Field (N Ballarat), Luke Jarrad (Williamstown) HF: David Mitchell (Werribee), Marcus Baldwin (Williamstown), Clint Alleway (BH) F: Kristan Height (BH), Nick Sautner (Sandringham), Justin Berry (Frankston) R: Nick Bye (N Ballarat), Brett Zorzi (N Bullants), Sam Anstey (Frankston) Int: Simon Taylor (BH), Shane Hutchinson (N Ballarat), Brent Tuckey (N Ballarat), Teghan Henderson (Werribee) You could argue a heap of other names to go in and argue others shouldn't be there. Hopefully a few others can have a crack, like I said give it some thought.

I've been running my (tired) brain over this myself footyman. Not easy is it. Obviously we can only be sure about guys we've actually seen and then take a few perhaps on reputation and the word of others. Of the squad you've been brave enought to go with , I'd perhaps question the forward line. Is Dave Mitchell our best option that far up the ground or should we be looking at a smaller , quicker type , maybe Shane Hutchinson. Seeing him alongside Baldy and Allers makes me worry a bit about a rebounding WAFL half back line.Personally ( and I stress PERSONALLY ) I'd rather go in with Baldy at FF and Allers at CHF..................I'm not a Sautner fan , especially at State level. Probably go with Obba ahead of Carlson too , although Leigh would make a VERY handy interchange player. I saw Jimmy Plunkett last week for Nth Ballarat and he'd give his team mate Fieldy a run for the spot in the centre. From a Box Hill perspective Benny Neagle would also be pushing Heighty for a spot , even given the fact that he's been playing back a bit this year. He's having a VERY good season. Simon Taylor , although a quality ruckman , has been struggling a tad of late and I 'd probably be tempted to go for Ryan O'Connor as Nick Bye's support ruckman....in fact I'd be tempted to start him on the ground. Might wait another week or two before I make any real attempt at putting a side together but that's a pretty good get so far footyman. Love to hear a few (healthily biased) ideas from others.....especially any of the Frankston guys , haven't played them yet so i dont know who's travelling well.

It's a very tough thing to pick a team I agree rico. There are a lot of players you could consider - point taken with Jim Plunkett. Same with the four Port players that onslaught named. Ben Schwarze was next on my list. What about Djaren Whyman? Tassie will certainly have a rep or two - Trent Bartlett, Brett Geappen or what about a kid like Brett Robinson with good endurance and running ability being an asset cos the game is in Perth? The ruck is interesting - Nick Bye has played well (anyone notice his centre bounce tactic last week?). What do they do with a back up ruck? I've gone Simon Taylor cos he could play forward/ruck but they might prefer someone like Ryan O'Connor for that. Anyway like you said rico hopefully we can get a bit of discussion going in this thread. I haven't seen Springvale this year so I'll be keen to see what you see on the weekend.

The very thought that Jars could p-lay State footy just about curdles my blood mate.....such has been his improvement since he left Box Hill/Hawthorn.......but he'd have to be a chance wouldn't he. Can we include Tassie players ? I wasn't sure. If so , Bartlett would be a monty for mine.

I'm pretty sure it's a VFL team and players from the Devils can be selected. Can anyone remember from the state game in 2002?
bullants
Brett Zorzi would have to be a certainty from Northern Bullants. However it would be hard for any other Bullants players to be selected as they rarely get enought game time to impress anybody.

bullants
A.Carazzo would be extremely fortunate to be in the state side. On current form he should be ommitted from the Bullants side. It would seem the only reason he is still being selected is due to the preference given to the Carlton listed players. I can only hope that Carazzo and Pleming will line up in the reserves tommorrow.

Nick Sauntner... He has played in recent state matches, but will they pick him on this seasons form? I must admit I have not seen him play this season and I know he has kicked 21 odd goals prior to round 7. In previous state matches he has struggled a bit imo, and maybe after early misses doesnt get back into the game. Would someone like Marcus Baldwin or Nathan Saunders be a chance ?
