No disrespect to Jordan Sweet but it looks like this will be a ruck massacre.
Hopefully Rhyce gives Xerri a decent run at it as I'd like to see Sweet run against someone closer to his level of development.

On the other hand Todd seems to get complacent when up against someone he should beat comfortably, as shown against Zac Clarke last year so who knows


Will be good to see Maj back out there though!

Should have been played elsewhere - Whitten Oval, Ballarat or somewhere else in the west for all i care. Even Arden Street and swapped the home and away.

Xerri will spend a fair amount in the ruck and is a huge lump of a lad. Has impressed many this pre-season.

Goldstein is fit as ever.

What can you tell me about Sweet and English's pre-seasons?

Looking forward to seeing Majak back at the top level.

What do supporters expect outside of the rusty cobwebs blown out?
North have gone in with a shorter forward line with Larkey and Xerri to be the 2 keys, so I expect a bit of tackling pressure for this game, especially compared to last night's kick-to-kick match.

Garner, Thomas, Zurhaar and even Turner can all take contested marks one on one. So can Cunnington and Anderson if they rotate thru. I wouldn't mind seeing them take some time to pick targets out of those guys early.

Dogs should win comfortably, putting a more talented team out there, we've got too many too many best 22 missing.

Our starting forward line is certainly lacking height, besides Larkey.

I see it's already started. After 1 match so many people now making comments of "so & so is now a lock" OR I've dropped so & so after watching him tonight". When will we learn to take very little notice of these games other than which rookies seem likely. Even seeing players playing in different roles doesn't mean that it will happen once the real stuff starts.
