Carlton vs Freo in Freo Practice Match

We may be on the TV (although I can't be sure of that), but I am surprised. The Pre-season comp is really no more than practice matches, hence the title. However, I won't complain, as I won't be in Freo next weekend.
My first chance to see how we are developing. Very interested to see who plays.
Live Long and Prosper!

At the moment Cripps and SPS are non-starters. Cripps is playing in the State game, while SPS has a minor quad injury. During the season SPS might have come up, but with no great need, we are being conservative. I won't mind, as long as he plays against the Tiggers.

The match is at Mandurah.

Freo won't have Fyffe, which hurts them very badly.

Freo 'injury' list - Hogan, Pearce, Hamling....

They'll be bottom 4 this year. As will Essendon (or thereabouts) - currently injured:

Ambrose with PCL has joined.....

He has joined skipper Dyson Heppell (foot), Joe Daniher (groin), Tom Bellchambers (knee), Michael Hurley (shoulder), Cale Hooker (hip), Mitch Hibberd (knee), Anthony McDonald-Tipungwuti (calf) and James Stewart (groin) as players battling injury concerns.
Finals, then 4 in a row!

I wonder what the people who selected Hogan for Rising Star over Cripps are thinking now... I am sure more than a few would change their votes.

Freo have depended on Sandilands for a long time now. It will be interesting to see how they manage without him.

I doubt it, those votes were not about the best player, we know some of them will never vote for a Carlton player despite stating(a lie) publicly that they do!

The good thing of course, it just exposes the goose!

No Eddie Betts: he's in Melbourne playing for the All-Stars.
However, Matthew Kreuzer is expected to have some game time. Pretty good recovery after heart surgery!

Given the AFL Media had SpecialK at death's door, I think Crash was being a bit sarcastic!

Everybody knows, only CheatsFC and The Filth have a heart.

Whether it be hunting down rogue mothers to prevent further psychological damage to a young star recruit, or helping young drug addicts have or retain an AFL career. Nothing is too hard for them to make an effort!

They bare all leaving nothing in reserve week after week!

Crash...the Hogan over Cripps for Rising Star wasn't anywhere as bad as the one to award it to Lewis Taylor...ahead of a bloke from the Dogs called Bontempelli who goes alright.

History has made that one look a little suspect, I agree.

Our team for Saturday, on paper, looks a lot stronger than Fremantle...including a solid starting back 6. All 3 of Casboult, TDK & Pittonet named along with Kruezer.
