Situation, I think it's that series of unknowns that make it fair to wonder about the strength of the bench. If Daly gets a gig, he's going to be there with more NBL experience than Burdon and Jervis. Regardless, it's not like (m)any are suggesting Perth won't be up there.
Who are people projecting as Perth's starters? Martin, Ennis, Hire, Redhage, Knight? Or Martin, import, Ennis, Redhage, Knight?
On bench strength, Adelaide have Teys, Cadee, Creek, Petrie, Anthony. Two of those played in the AU-NZ series, and another two would be in the young Boomers ranks. 3-4 of those guys have started or could start.
Depending on who they start, NZ could have Webster, Bruton, Te Rangi, Lazare, Trueman off the bench. Three of those guys are starting calibre. Another is somewhat proven and Te Rangi seems to be coming along.
