Looking forward to seeing our rookies play.
It is what it is. If you expect it to be like the regular season, you will be disappointed. I don't care about the result, but I like to watch the non-regular players run around and see how they're developing. There has been a few players that have impressed in the preseason comp and got senior spots on the back of it.
It's just simply a warm up to the season.

Pretty much, its really only the last game that we will see a squad that will resemble round 1. Even then it wouldnt be taken very seriously.

How I'd expect them to line up

HF: Karpany -- Lamb -- Partington
CC: Masten - Sheed -- Jetta
HB: Cole -- Barrass -- Welligham
FB: Nelson - McKenzie - Schofield
Mid: Vardy - Redden - Hutchings
Bench: McInnes - Rotham - Gorter - Watson - Brophy - Mutimer - Snadden
Not too bad from the young kids. We had no one to kick to up forward and we absolutely butchered it every time we went in. The kids ran out of puff in the last quarter.
Watson had a good game and looks promising, Jetta looked much, much better, Redden had 9 tackles almost doubling his average from last year, Vardy looked serviceable in the ruck but lacks the awareness and soft hands to get it to the advantage of one of our mids.

Thought it was ok, in fact reasonably happy with the level of effort given the absurd travel requirements. We sent an intraclub grade team.
Got through the game more or less unscathed, a few kids showed some signs (as they always do) and there were some positive indications from a few people who we really need to step up, like Jetta.
I think the score line was mainly a reflection of the complete lack of credible forward line options- we actually did okay in general play, there was just no one with any forward presence in the named team.
