Is King good to go? Without him it's good, but probably not best ever. There's no big guy who's going to drop 40 the way Humphries did. We're reliant on how good King and Giddey are as a 1/2 combo and the fact they can slide over to the 2/3 with Wigness at the point.

Okwera did very well at ajc u20s.
Thought he was 01 but then looks like he was on the emergency list for u16 wa in 2017, so must be 02.
Thought hornery was also 01.

I don't think any of the 03 post players would make it, pennisi, Walker or McWilliams.

I was disappointed with the 02 talent in the women from ajc u20s, me thinks half will be bottom agers in the squad this year.
Potter winning mvp waste stand out but beyond that I didn't think other aus players like Melbourne, Pollerd and Notoa looked like shoe ins for Asia.

Those around the program like
Morgan, Henderson, Woolley, Evans, Paea, MacDonald, Hanafin etc had some good games but werent very consistent.
Coach Herbert will have to make some tough calls with no clear standout players.

In this age group Australia doesn't always get the best players to go to the WC and this maybe the case with King and Giddey, but this would make a great team with only the Centre position being underdeveloped at the moment (still a year and a half to go..)

Wigness / Bayles
king / Armstrong
giddey / Adebayo
jones / Hornery
okwera / Schmidt


Daniels
4/5 ? Rodgers/Wessels

Wigness / Bayles
King / Armstrong / (1 of Smith, Daniels, Rasmussen, Deans, Mazlin etc)?
Giddey / (1 of Duach, Ipassou, Stattman, Griffin, Ofoedu, Abbott etc)?
Jones / Horney / (1 of Adebayo, Gak, Gristci, Pennisi etc)?
Tsapatolis / Okwera


Big guys like Schmidt, Rodgers and wessels maybe not mobile enough.
Should no more about the questionable players after ajc u18s.
