It’s not really State of Origin With this 3 player a club rule but I guess given its a charity game then it doesn’t matter much

No, not the traditional state of origin, but its for charity, so doesn't matter what its called. Whether you call it that, or a charity game or an all stars game. In the end, its for the same thing. Either way, it should be fun plus for a good cause.

Im only being pedantic but yes maybe the Vic team should be in the record books as “Victoria All Stars”. Good one.

No me, too close to first AFL games vs port at home to let Rankine play in exhibitions match. His hammy need time to settle also

From the AFL website.

Currently injured players – including Sydney superstar Lance Franklin and Gold Coast co-captain Jarrod Witts – were not considered in the eight names in liaison with clubs.

No surprise there.

Eight players – four for Victoria and four the All Stars – were put forward by the AFL that clubs will be required to confirm as fit to play for the Victoria v All Stars match at Marvel Stadium on Friday, February 28.

A player's best and fairest finish and the 2019 Virgin Australia AFL All-Australian squad were heavily favoured in the process of selecting eight names from each club on Wednesday.

I really hope Rankine gets picked from the Suns.
I don't think he will. Think they are going with the best well known players. All Australians, best and Fairests. At least that's the impression. Not sure they'd pick someone who hasn't debuted yet.

Yeah, that’s not what I meant by my post.

I would like to see Rankine from the Suns, because he’s the most exciting player on your list.

Not to knock the other players you’ve mentioned, but they don’t really scream all star selection.

Even in his first season playing, Rankine has the potential to be the best or second best small forward in the competition.

Imagine having Rankine and Charlie Cameron starting for the All Stars. The Vics would sh!t themselves trying to contain both. Even if the players don’t go at 100% on the defensive side of the game.

I don't see it that way, all stars always at disadvantage because they are not representing their state compare to Victoria so no point putting a player out there without an AFL game especially exhibition match.

Victoria:
Ben Ainsworth, Brandon Ellis, Brayden Fiorini, Touk Miller
All Stars: Jarrod Harbrow, Alex Sexton, Lachie Weller, Jarrod Witts
The Suns are a tricky prospect with a largely unproven team, but the All Stars are sure to benefit from some of their personnel. Alex Sexton is a proven goalkicker and should command a spot, while Jarrod Harbrow – who is almost back to full training after a pre-Christmas niggle – would be perfect as a running half-back. Brandon Ellis could be an outside chance of playing in the Victorian team, with his ability to play wing and half-back. – Michael Whiting

The clash would be the biggest occasion in the career of key defender Steven May, given the former Sun is yet to play a final as he enters his 10th season at AFL level. - Ben Collins

Thanks you dick. Because Melbourne have been a raging success in the 10 years he's been in the league.

Seems only 1 player will be chosen. Most likely Swallow, you'd think.

All 18 clubs must be represented across the squads and sources have told The Age three clubs – Fremantle, Melbourne and Gold Coast – have only one player selected for the match at Marvel Stadium, which will be preceded by a Dees-Pies AFLW clash. The origin squads were initially set to be limited to three players per AFL club before the league - after prodding from the coaches - decided to change the selection criteria.

I’m fine with that - really want to support the bushfire victims but happy to have our squad off the deck.

lions will be praying for a safe trip with about 5 up for selection
