We made a great start vs the Weagles but the Cats are coming off a shock loss to GCS and will be looking to make amends. Bombers should be able to field a stronger team than round 1, with Stringer and McKenna likely to return.
I think we’d all love to see the same commitment and skill level that we saw last week.
And Saad to play as well.
What a terrible time to start the game.
Anyone not west of the CBD won’t get home before 10.
To be fair, regional people often need to drive long distances in the dark. Get into the regional mood.
Pencil it in as a win friends!! Very excited.
Standard injury mitigation strategy of resting Lav. Why do we play Cats every pre-season?
Fair call. But that’s why I don’t live in a regional area😉
It’s an easy drive that’s essentially all well lit freeway
Under 2hrs from St Kilda so bunch of us planning on little roadie down
A win? That’s very conservative of you. We’re gonna win both the BLT and VFL games.
Is there another VFL practice match?
Anyway 22, 24 or 26 man squad?
Expect a near full strength line up
Saad hurls Francis
Conor zerk Ridley
Ham McGrath Langford
Philips zerrett Shiel
Smith lav Fanta
Tippa smack stringer
Redman Zaha parish Snelling
McBride Clarke Jones Gleeson
Is tbell going to be fit?
Part of the promotional strategy for the Country Game.
Because the cows, sheep and crops don’t care what day of the week it is.
Ham supporters would like to thankyou for acknowledging his rightful place on the wing.
Because it’s a public holiday.
There is a game scheduled at Craigieburn
( v Box Hill ) Sunday 22/3 11.:30 AM.
I’m sure the club will confirm dates & times a bit closer to the day
22, 24 or 26 man squad
26, ie, 8-man bench again.
I wonder if we’ll do that? It would mean that we’ll need to drop a couple of the youngsters. Ideally I’d like to see them get another run - particularly Jones, Mozzie, Lockyer + McBride.
Will Cutler be available?
Hibberd might be ready to go also
Stewart can’t be far off either but perhaps lower intensity/able to be managed better VFL practice match might be best for him first up
Cutler if whatever ails him from Dees game sorted
