In light of the round 1 preview going up its time to preview the game before it.

Our first of 2 preseason games. This one I think we can experiment a fair bit before the final practice game where we would treat it like round 1.

Who do you want to see play?

I want Simpkin, LDU, Bonar and TT getting a lot of centre square time.
This probably means cunners sits out game 1

Would not play taz for the first game to see how Daw, Walker, Durdin and Mckay go
No doubt there will be intra clubs before this which will dictate teams also but I’d like the below

B: Marley Durdin Daw
HB: Atley Walker McDonald
C: LDU Bonar Ahern
HF: Ziebell Larkey Garner
F: Zurhaar Brown Turner
R: Goldy Simpkin Thomas
I: mckay Wood Jed Scott Tyson Hall

Don't mind it.

Agree with everything in green...so all of the above haha. I would like to see Higgo in there too - also means Ahern can rotate of HB which (I assume) will be one of if not his role this year (just off what we saw last year).

Would like to see us try some things out in the first game. Stuff like Wood and Ahern back, Anderson forward, see how the midfield goes without Cunnington, forward line without Brown etc.

B: Williams Walker Pittard
HB: Wood Durdin Ahern
C: Scott Thomas Hall
HF: Mahoney Ziebell Garner
F: Anderson Larkey Hosie
Foll: Goldstein Simpkin Davies-Uniacke
Int: Daw Dumont Higgins Atley McDonald Tyson

Yeah very keen to see how Wood goes back and Hosie the third tall forward

Bonar the one I’m most excited to see though

Im so bloody hyped to see Larkey play again. He's the kind of guy who'll win us tight games and finals.

Wodonga & Mooroopna prior to gentrification.
I get that, but LDU is from Rye also, where they went to school is irrelevant.

He’s a Vic Country player.


Bonar is the one that’s country by u/18 definition as he’s with the Stingrays, being from Seaford, but definitely Metro via normal rules.

Plus it evens up the teams more to do it my way having both bonar and LDU with city

but we can be pedantic over 1 or 2 to keep the convo going on the potential intra club matchups

I’m not sure LDU would like that.

Ziebell went to Caulfield Grammar and Simpkin went to Scotch...

LDU is definitely country by origin definition.
Simpkin in his latter years; maybe one or two years at best

It’s always a quandary whether or not to venture down to these games or watch on Poxtel.

Last years Pre Season games were abominations
