2018 VFL Rd 1: Northern Blues vs Collingwood

This Saturday the Baby Blues are playing the Meat Pies. The game is at Preston, starting at 1400.

At this point, Lobbe will be in and probably Lang.
Live Long and Prosper!

Correct me if I'm wrong but I cant remember an NB side with so many Carlton list players.
2017 - 16th
2018 - Wooden Spoon
2019 - 16th
2020 - dare to dream? 11th is better than last I suppose
2021 - Pi$$ or get off the pot
2022 - Real Deal or more of the same?

A far stronger looking NB team  at long last, this will help fast track maturity and development f the youngsters too.
Go Blues

Yep the three pie players you mentioned would make a big difference for them.
However got a suspicion there may be a late change before the game.

Where is Lang?

Two months ago he had strained ankle ligaments and had resumed running.

I find it hard to believe that it was only strained ligaments given he's not even playing reserved yet.

Mckay didn't say that, he said Lang was a test last week and would be another test this week.

We've equaled the numbers a few times, but the quality will remain a question until we see them win regularly.

Back room rumors of a resolution on a proposal to restore a reserves comp are getting stronger.

It looks like it's going to happen this time because some at the top of AFL House have shifted to support it. When though is unsure, it looks like it will be 2 or 3 years out.

In association with this, it looks like there will be changes to draft age rules and some other recruit related issues to allow the new competition to get of the ground. It looks like the new comp will borrow a bit from the AFL and a bit from the TAC Cup to have a comp that has kids playing alongside men.
