Valid point, on last years results they should do it without any trouble.

Surely the league should decide who goes up and down. Canterbury weren't that far away from both grand finalists, whereas Wattle Park come seasons end were a long way off.
Either side would win D3 easily in all likelihood

Genuine head scratcher.
It sure is, it's bloody hard getting out of the bottom grades and they were gifted a golden opportunity to do so.

No guarantee of a flag either, all it takes is for a side to recruit really well and who knows.

When it boils down though they should not of had a say in it.

Let me get this straight, a team that finished 4th and lost their final by 100pts contacted the VAFA and asked to be promoted??

This is the bit that doesn't make sense to me.

Both clubs are in a difficult position, stay down and compete for a flag or go up and potentially be on the end of some serious hidings.

Interesting, maybe a bit of a send off for OP from the VAFA here. I like the rest of it, maybe except I'd have Nolan from parade, Dakin from BT, Mckay and Holden from parkside in too.
Melb high and whitefriars having 4 each for sides finishing outside the 4 is odd.
When the lowest % out of the 10 sides is 64 it shows a even competition.

Nice to see 6 key forwards there

I reckon mappa would have a fair bit to say about this, overall a pretty good side

Or maybe having already been on the way out, they didn’t respond to any requests to nominate players?

As for 4 players for a side outside the 4, all are walk up starts

Not so much a “fair to say”, but primarily that Marcus should absolutely be in this side.
Healy, Mahony and Brock could also have been considered.

Isn't Dwyer from aquinas more of a mid-small? Very potent fwd line though

For friars? Fair call, however if Parade and BT didn't nominate anyone I would have more players from the best side all year, just my opinion.

Playing a team in the same Division is strange. PEGS will be tough. Where are you guys playing them?

We have Ivanhoe on the 16th and Canterbury on the 23rd of March. 19's have Xavier away and De La at home (their weaker teams).

Draw by the end of next week is my understanding
