I had a feeling that we had the same occur earlier in the year but I could be mistaken as players may have dropped out when final afl team was named and 1 academy player came in. I certainly haven't seen it happen before this year thats for sure
They get to play down in QAFL still, so it’s not the be all or end all for them. Who knows, if there’s a full reserves comp soon maybe they enter an academy team into QAFL or QAFL Reserves.In a way it's a shame that the academy boys haven't had that much opportunity to play against men in a second tier league. Maybe one day when we (and other QLD/NSW teams) have a better reserves league to play in than the present NEAFL, we can restart the Lion Cubs in the NEAFL/QAFL but for the academy.
I also think we had a full team play earlier in the year... perhaps only 22, as we don't always play 23. The answer would be in the NEAFL ap if anyone can be bothered looking, but life's too short so I won't. Jivlain probably knows.I had a feeling that we had the same occur earlier in the year but I could be mistaken as players may have dropped out when final afl team was named and 1 academy player came in.

Not sure I can remember a game that Coleman hasn’t played?
I seemed to remember a game where he didn't play because there wasn't room for him .... *goes looking* ... there ya goNot sure I can remember a game that Coleman hasn’t played?
But I couldn’t be bothered looking either!
Reserves team for Sunday. 22 listed players with E Smith named as an emergency. Is that the first time that's ever happened? More fit players than we can field. Good to see Tom Joyce and Lewy taylor back. Very tall backline... think for structure one of the big four should swing forward. personally, I'd like to see Eagles forward and changing in the ruck.

Keidean Coleman, on form he would be one of the first selected.
However you can hardly select an academy player over a listed player.
This game could get extremely ugly for Redlands, we are undefeated with a percentage of 249% and they have won 2 games with a percentage of 86%, if we are ruthless it could be a 150+ points win.
