    I know for a fact O'Bree really rated Gore before he left and was pushing for him to get senior opportunities at match committee. I'm sure their relationship was a major reason he came back to Geelong VFL.

    I liked Gore in his time at the club and thought Wells had pulled another solid player from a pick in the 50's.

    Was disappointed he left and thought he'd do better back home in SA.

    Im looking forward to seeing what he can do this year - he's a free hit really for the VFL team - and he might do a Tom Stewart next year.. or equally a Brad Hartman.

    Really hoping it’s the former for the juicy melts from our feather friends over the border

    I liked when he was 1 of our draftees. I like more now Dean is back playing in our VFL system.

    The salt etc. I could not give a RA about, if it improves us a team.

    Any idea where Troy Menzel is playing next year. Wished he came over with Gore.

    Anyone seen the new VFL fixture yet? Saw an article on the 9th saying it would be released in the middle of this week, but haven't seen it anywhere.

    Eight Home games for the VFL side with three being curtain raisers for the AFL side.
    Not a bad result

    Not sure if it is a work in progress or not but cause there are two games against Werribee one against Richmond an only one against Box Hill

    Round 6 vs Collingwood looks interesting. Are they playing a half at the Holden Centre and half at the MCG, or breaking the team into two and having 2 simultaneous AFLX matches? :p

    He’d be lucky to get a game at Golden Grove.

    Edit: just found out he’s playing for Tea Tree Gully in the SA Amateur league.

    The home games & VFL/Reserves playing as the curtain raiser is huge for us.

    Loving the depth added and looking fwd to the younguns turning it on.

    Don't like those odds.

    I think that's a mistake. Usually the Torquay game we play at Easter is actually always a home game for the other team.

    The reason that Werribee were playing their home game against us at Torquay was because their own playing surface at Werribee was in very poor condition iirc. I do not know if that has been rectified as yet.

    Oh fair nuts. I remember a few years back we played at Torquay against Willy or Footscray and it was their home game.
    Mitch Brown dominated.
