Gee, the Northern v Carlton clash might have some spice to it. The boys from Preston will be fired up for that.

I suppose no details yet around VFL lists, and how numbers or top-ups might work? Is there likely to be a separate roster of players tied to our VFL team, or is ShaneO going to be ringing around the suburban clubs seeking fill-ins on the morning of matches? Perhaps a couple of U18 lads could feature each week or something? Ahh, the good old days of the likes of Matty Blagrove tearing it up as a top-up player.

Excuse my ignorance but can someone please explain the difference between a stand-alone side and what we had with the Northern Bullants/Blues? I'm assuming we have a lot more of a say on who plays, game plan, etc.? And that we have a separate list for the second tier comp but our players can also get games?

Exactly, we control this new team, our players filled in for the other one.
