Despite the shortened season, David Cuningham managed the most games in a single season when he fronted up in Navy Blue 12 times last year. When fit, Cuningham was a constant presence in David Teague’s, with his potential on full display in his best-on-ground, three-vote performance against Essendon in Round 4. Consistency has been the name of the game for Cuningham this pre-season, with the speedster once again likely to combine his time across half forward and in the midfield.
