Is it confirmed it will be moved?
Also you’d think WCoast will field lots of players in the state of origin clash where as we will not have many if any players (ZMerrett maybe?) Regardless we should now have a much stronger squad for this pre season game...

Players are capped at 3 per club for the SoO game, so it’ll basically just be removing 2-3 of our best players and 2-3 of theirs.

Seems to be confirmed from that article. Mock team on AFL site has Saad, Hurley and Merrett in the team but who knows if that will be the case. Probably will depend a bit who the clubs want to let play I guess...

Iggles, 76ers.
of all the half baked hare-brained schemes gil has come up with, having this SOO match is certainly one of them.
If Hepp was willing to lose the hair, then a few players from each club running around for a couple hours really isn't asking too much ;) .

No issues with Gil on this one.

Players I would like to see feature in this match (if fit):

Defence: McBride, McQuillan, BZT, Francis, Ridley
Midfield: Clarke, Mutch, Cutler, Snelling, Smith, Ham, Bryan
Forward: Jones, Stewart, Fantasia, Mosquito, Cahill

I think there's 8 on the bench? Either way, just hoping for a good showing.

Is anyone else absolutely chomping at the bit to see some Footy? I've been so bored lately that I've almost contemplated going outside.

....almost.
You're telling me....I had to go on a business trip to India with 3 QLDers and a Kiwi last week....footy was pretty low on any sports related discussions.

EDIT: AND a New South Welshman now that I recall. Far out.

Whoops forgot - Saad wont play because he's playing for the Big V the following night. How good is next week going to be - this game Thursday night followed by the state of origin on the Friday - great to have footy back!
