Why for are they playing this practice match at Marvel and not a suburban or regional ground like Idk... Ballarat?

Seems a pretty weird anomaly when aside from a game at Metricon on Saturday every other game is at either a suburban or regional ground.

Even the GWS V Sydney game is out in the wilds of Rooty Hill.

The two Plastics supporters may come from Rooty Hill so they wanted to save them travel time

Don't know where to put it, but there is a members only scratch match at VUWO on Feb 29. Two 30min halves, starting around 9.15am. Must show membership card to gain access. Bont, Macrae and JJ obviously won't be playing though.

I know preseason games are meaningless and not reflective of how the season will go, but it's gonna feel pretty bad to lose this week considering how many of North's best players are missing - Tarrant, Brown, Ziebell, Polec, Higgins plus more

So if they're meaningless and don't reflect the season, why will it feel bad? 😜 tbh, I'm just glad footy is back. All I want is no injuries and some exciting footy, don't care about results. We'll save the proper show for Good Friday.

Yeah that's what I'm saying, it's meaningless yet I still would hate to lose this so much :(
But yeah, get through with clean bill of health and can't complain too much
