First JLT game - hopefully most of may faves head over to play. Will be on the hill (actually I think there is a tiny grandstand so nearly everyone will be on the hill) sinking tins and yelling at the umps. Good times.

Not sure when the team is announced - maybe Wednesday?

Read somewhere that the club said they'll field the strongest possible side available for both games.
Hopefully we don't wear out our guys by taking JLT too seriously. We always burn out in the pointy end of the year and I don't think going 100% into practice matches helps

Ask anyone other than Dees fans and they'll say we should be fresh after bitching the camp.
But I'm pretty sure you can select a pretty large squad for the JLT and just rotate blokes through. They all definitely need a reasonable hit out before the real stuff.

Two games (With over two weeks off before our first game) will make zero difference in burning players out.

It won't matter to much, plenty of time to rest up.

The club these days doesn't take anything lightly anymore, from AFLX to JLT it fields the strongest available side regardless

Read the same. Also heard Jennings on SEN last week. Said something along the lines of playing our best 25 v North and then best 22 v Saints. I’d assume Viney may not play JLT.

Pretty sure Goodwin wants to get games into the players. Players like Petracca Oliver and maybe Hunt played all JLT and then all 22 season games. Given Jennings post AFL X comments we are also playing to win.

Assuming that, then:

B: Jetta OMac Lever
HB: Hibberd Frost Hunt
C: Stretch Oliver Lewis
HF: Melksham Hogan Petracca
F: Garlett TMac Hannan
R: Gawn Jones Brayshaw
Int: ANB Maynard Salem Bugg Pedersen Harmes Fritsch

No Tyson or Viney due to the injuries.

I'd be surprised if they didn't include Vince in the squad.

I don’t think I’ve been ever more excited over our forward line. I think Fritsch will solidify his spot down the pointy end of the season. Petracca and Melksham will give a hard contest along the flank/wing.

Hopefully all 6 of them gel down there.

Great Profile Pic you've got there.

Have a good one mate. Hopefully they can put norf to the sword for you.

While on the subject of preseason games i've only been to three up here. None consisting of Melbourne. North vs Saints in 2016 at Wang, Geelong vs Essendon in shepp 2016.

And oh joyous times, back in 2012 i begged my parents to take me to see St Kilda vs Essendon. AS prior to that i had only ever seen two AFL games in my life (and only one with melbourne) and i wanted to see something so badly. So on a bad and rainy day we went to Wang down the highway with the threat of floods, and watched the Saints train in the wet by themselves, Because they took a bus and the bombers took a plane, stopped and turned around because of how bad it was
