I am going to predict Schuster will start at 5/8 with Foran off the bench.
I think Foran is back to help a few elements along the lines of a winning attitude, helping the attack to (straighten up) and his relationship will be opposite to what the media fed everyone, where Forans presence will be a huge plus to the developement of the young Schu, who will flourish learing important key pointers from a proven Top shelf player.
In a perfect world I predicted Schuster could also be a great lock forward if we had a fit and healthy Foran at 5/8, but in the real world, Foran will likely be preserved where possible and I think expecting him to last every game in the 6 is a longshot....still there is room to form debate over this....
What's the thoughts ?

I reckon:

Foran at 6
Cust at 9
Schuster at 14

Schuster to come on for Foran or Cust comes off for a spell, Foran moves to hooker.

For the first few games to help settle Schuster in.

Thereafter I see Schuster at 6, Cust at 9, Foran at 14.

Foran comes on to give either Schuster or Cust a spell.

I guess any injuries incurred by then will dictate who is where but fingers crossed we dont have the injury toll we had this year.

Turbo
Schuster
DCE
Cust

Foz from the bench as our utility. After Cust has taken the brunt of the defensive workload early on.

I think Cust will work at 9. He has great footy timing and understands momentum. His biggest downside is his lack of maturity, but if Des gives him clear instructions from 9 - I think it’ll work...And work well.

If Cust or Foz go now mid season (unless we see another signing) I can see Croker being the back up.

If Fainu comes back, we have one of the hottest looking spines in the comp.

IMO Schuster is ready to take the 6 and really dominate straight away. He is one of the best jrs I’ve seen come through our ranks and it’s scary to think of the combo he will form with Turbo over the next few years. It’s a luxury to have Foran helping tweak his game in the background setting him up long term.
For me it would be nice to see Schuster start at 6 with Foz on the bench but I think Des will go the other way around

If we are stuck with Froggy can he at least run the water because it’s as sure as **** he can’t be trusted on the field.

As to the 6 I doubt he’ll run on in game one as 6 ( Schuster ) so I expect to see one of the others in there first but NOT Froggy.

I think Foran will play off the bench, don't see him lasting a season as a 80 minute player.
Feel he is here for a similar role $BW was used at the rooster, try and get his win at all cost attitude to rub off onto the rest of the squad.
