Also, looks like it has another name change. No longer the JLT Community Series, it's the 2020 Marsh AFL Community Series.

Wish they could have picked a better opponent for us to play at Noarlunga. I'm happy they've chosen the game there as it's nice and close to home (for me), but it'll hardly give us a gauge of where we're at.

IIRC we usually use these pre-season games to get some fitness and games into our older players

I expect to see a whole different line-up this time around
And then the older players who haven't got any fitness or games under their belts get selected anyway.

Paul Marsh didn't realise that advertising in this way is a waste of time...i've still no idea what JLT is

So a game at Noarlunga on March 6th at 4:20 pm. Great planning by the AFL. Should only be 45 degrees at that stage so perfect for footy.
Even stupider is having three pre-season matches in Perth at that time, where the average temperature is 5 degrees higher than Adelaide

Early March in Adelaide starting at 4:20pm.

Who could possibly foresee any issues with that?

I'm looking forward to MacKay not playing in either of these games but playing round one.
