Boomers 2023/24 Likely line-up

First of all let's hope Lemanis is gone.
Secondly let's move on from the core of Mills, Ingles, Baynes and Bogut. All will be at least 35 or more and probably not in team.

My squad ( not final 12)
Dellavedova (33 in 2023)
Cooks (28)
Landale (28)
Simmons (27)
Thon Maker (26)
Adel (27)
Green (23)
Makur Maker (23?) Not Dave/Todd the real one.
Bolden (27)
Broekhoff (33)
Humphries (25)
H Froling (25)
Cotton (31) 35yo Mills might still be around
Motum (33)
Noi (26)
Moller (29) I don't rate him but many forum users do.
Exum (28)
Creek (31)
Travers (22)
Wigness (21)

Thoughts... Anyone I have missed.
Also thoughts on potential coach

I also think that Sam Froling will be a better player than Harry Froling

How you can list someone like Creek, who clearly is out of his depth at the international level and should not be there, over someone like Goulding, who has proven that he belongs and did again last night, is a travesty. But that is common around here with Mitchy boy. You may as well add Blatchfield to the list.

Sam Froling is better than Harry.

Grida and Naar are also potentially players.

I'd remove Travers.

I think Epperson will surprise some people when he is fully fit. He has been plagued by injuries. 6'11, athletic, good rim protecter.

Grida could be good.

I will keep an eye on Alex Ducas. He is a flat out shooter.

Stattmann is an interesting one. He was a lights out shooter until the U19 Worlds began. He had a shocking shooting tournament. Hopefully he gets his form back.

Jack White will be interesting to watch at Duke this season. If he regains his early form of the season, he is young enough to keep improving, he is a potential Boomer too

Both Naar and Moller are 94 and this year nbl could tell us a lot, Naar probably battling with Ball and Moller should get more time now he's out Melbourne. They were a magnificent duo back in there high school days. I like what I see in both them. Moller had two nbl China tours and played in the qualifying in Melbourne and did well. Naar played in the last qualifying games in Asia so both obviously on the radar.

Who cares about the high school days for Moller and Naar.

That should give Adel enough time to learn the team systems...

I love how punters just write of players and think others are going to be super stars so early in there careers. Let's see what the next few seasons bring.

Don't discount young Tyrease Proctor, Anthony Mundine Junior & Josh Dent. They may be only 14-15 now, but look out in 5 years time...

Don't think you can tell yet with kids born in 05.

"Naar's shooting is simply not good enough i'm afraid"

Tell that to Mitch Creek

Maker Maker Baynes
Landale Bolden
Cooks Adel
Green Broekhoff/Cotton
Simmons Exum Delladova

That's my guesses 12 man squad no injuries or pulling out.

Though I don't know enough about the 01 crowd. Hopefully they can all push for selection. Especially if there are some SFs among them.

Baynes is already 32, he won't be around in 4 years time and makers younger cousin won’t be experienced enough I don’t think.
Anyone born before 1990 won’t be in the squad.
