What about your own selection Swoop? It's an open field in the bottom half I reckon.
Ky are certainly looking the ones to beat What a terrific football side they are tongue, I believe their main challengers will be once again Echuca let’s hope the likes of Euroa, Rochy, Benalla , and Seymour improve enough to add some real spice to the competition Toss up for wooden spooners out of Mansfield and Mooroopna Like someone has already mentioned Lamonts professional coaching could be the difference on who gets the spoon

Yes I agree mate. At this point it looks like United, Swans, Mooroopna, Mansfield and probably Shepparton are bottom five. Not sure how strong Tatura will be either.

Maybe more announcements regarding recruits to come from these sides but it seems late.

For mine it is Kyabram well ahead, followed by Echuca and Euroa (if their recruits actually play a significant part) then Benalla, Rochy and Seymour who cannot challenge Kyabram. Then it drops off even further.
Have to agree with that 100 mate.

Mansfield for mine at this point lost some quality from a side that was only fair in 2019. Doesn't look like Mooroopna have done much recruiting wise which is a bit dissapointing but they won 4 games last year and Lamont should be able to atleast get them to that point again which would have them above a Spoon.
Is Smith Mooroopna's only recruit at this point Doc?

I see Brad Gleeson has put in his 2nd clearance application to the KDFL after being denied 1st time. Assuming their influence won't include Brad?

James Ivill also out of Euroa. Excuse my ignorance, but was he one of their key backs? If so, I rated him on the couple of occasions I have watched Euroa over the past few years.
Matty Ivill is the key back you're thinking of. James his younger brother. Matt heading to the Wang Rovers I think.

Yep you would imagine with the points system in place teams can slot them in during the year and if they quit vfl next year, they get them full time for a point less the next season

If you could a VFL standard player for 6 to 12 games and maybe including finals wouldn't you grab him? Most Club's struggle to recruit I think they would be snapping them up.

yes agree. Most often the player will know a few at the club as that’s the reason they sign there. Then if the club is smart and treat them well there is a possibility of them going there once they stop vfl. Also a good chance for the club to see how they go at local level. Do they give you 💯?

Good to hear from you SUPASTARR!

What else is happening down at Memorial Park mate? Euroa seem to have been active in their recruiting. You reckon Gleeson will stay? Cheers

12 yes
6 very debatable

I get about working down points but I also see the culture that it brings when guys just “rock up” for the odd game.

If you have a VFL player or two playing 12 or so games. They are part of the team for the finals.

Only getting 6 games from your top end. You probably want play finals

* completely different if it’s a local kid having a crack at a higher level.

That's the brother, Josh.
Nick has been playing in the VFL with Williamstown, Richmond and Coburg.
There are two Nick Mellington's Jet. None of us are certain if it is the Gigaree Nick Mellington, or the former Benalla teammate of Lachie Smith, and current VFL player Nick Mellington.

Either is quite plausible. The rest of the league would prefer the Gigaree Nick.
But, Kyabram have plenty of points to recruit the VFL version.

Definitely not the Girgarre Nick gents, coming back from back to back ACLs I believe.

I had been told that the Williamstown player was likely heading back to the GV so I assumed that it's him - I'm happy to be corrected (again) though ha!:cool:

Sounds like you and ringo are correct Jet.

Unless he heads back to Benalla with Martinello. Great to see a player of his quality back in the league.

Not that Kyabram are struggling ...😊
