Would love to know the story behind Vaughn supporting the Crows. I remember there was a rumour he was going to come to the Redbacks but I don't think it went beyond that. He was at Yorkshire with Lehmann so I'm guessing that might have something to do with it.
Is he a supporter, or just a promo opportunity to get him in a Crow guernsey?

Scorpus, in response to your question, Carey is a Crows fan so he and Head could play for the two teams. There's a final the day before the Strikers could be involved in but, with the next game after that on the 6th, I'm sure they would be able to squeeze this game in.

My VW had us at 47.5 degrees at about 6pm the other day. But I don’t think we had a day that actually got that high. I don’t think they’re all that accurate. Or they pick up heat from the road or the car. I was told it’s taken about 3 feet from the dash. But I wonder given how high the readings seem to get.

It’ll be tame because so much will have burned this season and bucket loads will be spent. That’s what my money is on.
The temperature from the BOM is taken in the shade, so your car temp may well be correct

Don’t be too sure. Getting a lot of fuel load reducing burns done this season. I’d expect the next few years to be pretty tame, especially with the amount of $ ScoMo will throw around as well.
There's plenty of Australia not burnt yet.

SloMo is only throwing $ at recovery, and it's over a number of years. Nothing about prevention as usual

Thought he’d be a giants fan?

recovery for now, because that’s what’s at the forefront of people’s minds. Well, at least those who’ve had stuff destroyed. The failures in prevention or ability to control will come next. Politically it’s imperative for him, it’ll happen.

Only issue is, although lots of the undergrowth is gone, there are plenty of dried trees standing like matchsticks ready to go throughout many of the fire stricken areas. A crown fire through that won't be as intense nor as hot, but it'll be incredibly fast moving.

Unfortunately fires that don't wipe out the trees completely still leave considerable amounts of dry fuel behind.

Tickets on Sale today.

Is this match on Channel 7?
I'm assuming so as they're a sponsor. Not sure if they'll do it live or as a Slowdown-style highlights package though.

So far, looks like it'll only be the hill and western stand that will be in use for the game (sorry SACA members, looks like you'll have to mix with the riff-raff :D )

B Vince very handy. Very.
I’m sure Tex will have a word with Bernie about the game.
Does anyone know the seating map for this? Ticketek doesn’t seem to have one atm.

Earlier they had the seating map to select your ticket preference and it just showed the whole ground as GA.
