Look at it this way.And despite this we don't have NEAFL practice matches as early as the other AFL clubs in the NEAFL do.
They train with a team that finished equal first after the 2019 AFL H&A season.
Last Friday they were beaten by a mostly Lions A team in a 4 quarter hit out.
They then play Morningside and Gold Coast as mentioned by Mr Ripper.
Also they have a bye in round 1 so start the season one week later.
I think they will be okay come round one.
