    NEAFL Fixture 2019
    As the name of the thread implies; Lions Reserves and NEAFL discussion thread.

    Barring injuries, we should have a pretty solid side running around this year.

    I bet the club will be glad when they have a permanent home for reserves games. I count four home venues.

    It’s a shame Reverves Round 1 overlaps the firsts Round 3 night game against Port. At least with Thundavision you can watch it the next day.

    From a casual observers perspective from Lions games on YouTube and a few others I caught on NITV, the NEAFL standard improved overall IMO.

    Helps that Southport bounced back and the likes of Aspley recruited Swallow and the ex AFL ruckman whose name escapes me.

    Great for a young fellas to be playing in a more competitive environment.

    Interesting that they've continued with us only playing the non-AFL teams once. Hopefully the Suns and GWS don't have the same amount of injuries as they did this year and we get more competitive games. Would've been good to play Southport more than once.

    There are other teams?
    I hope that we are able to field mostly AFL listed players, including a handful of experienced ones (Lester, Bastinac etc) most weeks with a couple of academy top-ups to give them experience and see what they can do. That seems to be the best developmentally for us.

    It would be nice to get competitive games every week but when AFL teams get injuries and their NEAFL team gets raided for fit players I think those 12 games against the other AFL clubs are less useful - half a team of boys sometimes.

    I think our best development comes from playing our youth against hardened senior players in the other teams like Aspley and Southport.
