    Not a bad side ...
    I know its Melb and the line up will be strongly influenced by preseason games ... Im hoping a couple of fresh names push for selection , and/or maybe a couple of newbie from 17 hold their position

    Kolo would be swapping with Bews all day I'd imagine or could be swapping with Cocky on the wing.

    So, will Tim Kelly be lining up against this mob? Or, were the predictions that he could debut in round one slightly premature?

    I guess nobody will really have any idea until we're a lot closer to round one. To crack into our side against the Dees would be a fantastic achievement.

    Don't book your tickets yet!
    Dees players have asked the AFLPA if they can skip the match due to injury risk.
