I don't know that much about all the players mentioned, but by your own admission, you have one, count that, one, former Corio junior in your top eight players.
If Greg Smith is the same guy that used to play for Hume City then he would be older than Hutchinson, who is not a rookie. So you have at least 2 +35 guys running around.
You can't claim mature age guys joining your SUMMER CBL team as part of your program, not when, as Reardon and Hutchinson were, they were playing their serious winter ball at the same time elsewhere, and have been basically all their careers.
Claiming that about CBL would be like Warrandyte saying their import is now their player because he plays MMBL with them! (as has been reported in another thread here).
So you have recruited Hutchinson, Reardon, Williams and Smith to play Championship. If you were in D2 you would not have had to get these guys .... yes? And you have three other guys who have never been a part of your junior program either from what you have said.
Sorry mate, playing in your domestic comp counts for nothing. Matthew Snowball has played in Kilsyth's domestic comp for ages - he is a Ringwood player through and through. People don't play for you in senior domestic, they play "in" your domestic comp cause they choose to have a shoot around with their mates. I know nothing about your domestic comp, but if its like all those other comps in Victoria, it has no bearing on your rep program. Lots of SEABL and BigV players in Melbourne play domestic elsewhere.
But back to the point. Last weekend, you fielded six players in a game, simply and solely because the juniors on the end of your bench could not be trusted to keep you in what looks like it was a tight game against Hume City. Williams comes in, and Osborne (he does not appear to have played a game this year), and those "juniors" of yours are even further down the bench and less likely to play.
Why would your club do that? Why not take a path where you can reward the kids coming out of your junior program by actually playing them (D2) and augment them with some older guys (maybe this trevaskis and walker perhaps) and then build up to championship level over a minimum of 3 seasons?
