So taking >100 Ess and Norf people up there.
Not sure how a game in Qld will work with the non AFL listed players.
Just give us random QLD people off the street to play. Can’t do any worse.
Very true. Hadn’t thought about it rationally
Austin Lucy, Fraser Thurlow, John Williams … get them in!
Rhys Magin is probably up for a game
Isn’t that how we got our VFL players this year?
They might make up 2 teams from Essendon, North, Sydney and GWS. But lots of warts on it if so eg unless the other 3 have a similar number of injuries as us (probably not), there would be a lot more than 44 available.
All VFL round has been cancelled
DAMN , my Granny was gonna put her hand up , She would love to Don the Sash
The VFL has been a disaster zone in 2021 which has been magnified by the poor fixturing - By fixturing a 16 game season in COVID times, you reduce your flexibility.
Imagine choosing the middle of a pandemic as a time to switch the league from a Victorian-based to a national one. Just imagine how stupid you would have to be.
You’re forgetting this is the AFL. They actually believe they are bigger than the pandemic!!!
That’s literally what was going to happen. Asking around for players at local clubs.
For those Brisbane people, I understand there will be a scratch match between a combined Essendon/North VFL team and Brisbane at Cansdale street Yeronga starting at 11.30 Saturday
I’ll try and go along
Ok I’m going, but I’m not sure I’ll stay for the whole game… depends how interested I can keep my boys.
anyone have any requests for who to watch?
Any idea who will be playing? I’m guessing…
I assume Ham will be sub
Legend! Keen to see if Francis plays and how he plays and probably see if Hird can continue his good form.
Got here just as they started.
Wearing North Melbourne jumpers. Possibly 50 people watching. Must be exciting for the North players to play in front of this many people
Also Zaka, Bryan, Zerk, Hird, Clarke, Cahill.
Not sure about Brand, McBride and Eyre because the numbers are all over the place (Eg Francis in 86 and Zaka in 60)
Eyre might be 38 for us
