Looks good, but I would swap Thomas for Garner and add in X.

With only the one official pre season match (with an additional unofficial match if we want to organise it) you would think that with a new coach he would want to play as close to his Round 1 side as possible.

The Hawks are a basket case atm so it won't be a good test for any new game plan but it still needs to be practised, practised, practised...and maybe it will be good to try it initially against a weaker team.

A couple of the younger kids will be given a run on the extended bench - I expect Spicer and Mahoney to be part of that.

In terms of specifics/structure I am sure Noble will want answers to

. does JZ down back have legs (and then what is the impact on the whole structure of the backline if he plays there),
. whether X can play key forward/back up ruck or will it need to be J Walker
. whether Stevo will be predominantly mid or forward
. do we play a defensively minded small forward
. is Phiilips ready for Round 1.

Will be a good test as Clarko will have his team with good setups.

Teams like the hawks, swans have always stagnated our ball movement - let’s see if we’ve improved in this aspect

Noted in the training thread from the herald sun we will also play the saints in a practice match

so at least this isn’t the only game against actual oppo before round 1 for us

Don’t mind it. Do you know squad sizes for the scratchies? They usually have an extended bench

"An AFL decision could add fuel to the fire in the ongoing standoff with the Tasmanian Government".

Apparently, this match may be moved.

Get it to Arden Street Euge.
