I think Jas Grierson has some minor knee op. She had a bandage on at last weekends practice match.Team for Saturday:
The North Melbourne Tasmanian Kangaroos have named a 24-strong squad for Saturday's practice match against Melbourne.www.nmfc.com.au
Fairly sure all 24 named can take part, though it doesn't necessarily mean they will.
No Grierson, so I'll be keeping an eye on Tahni Nestor's "sharp decision-making and neat ball use under pressure" which our defence is otherwise likely to lack on the weekend. Hoping she's come on a bit since her 3 games at Carlton in 2017.
No Bresnehan either, which leaves the backline pretty weak at ground level. Maybe Gavalas or Mia King will get a run down there.
No Gibson, and if any newcomer can provide some compensatory dash off hb then it might be Gilroy the Irishwoman whose "power, speed, and ability to break the lines" is what grabbed the attention of our recruiters.
Mids and fwds basically at full strength.
Brit Gibson was walking the boundary last week. She was in training gear and didn’t appear to be impeded but didn’t take part in the practice match.
I’m not sure about Bresnehan. Hopefully all the girls are good to go round one.
