So has Prestia got a 3 week hammy or not? Nothing reported on the website at all
Might be just me, but I'd much prefer it if they mixed the squads up a bit for the intra club games.
You'd be right TBR, personally still rather see a bit of a more genuinely balanced hit out for the youngsters to get the opportunity to show their wares without being buried under an avalanche of elite.I think the reason they do it is they are not really looking for a competitive hit-out, they want match simulation as opposed to practice.
Keeping the ones together means they can run their set-ups and rotations in a more realistic setting than around witches hats. Gives them a chance to work through the centre-square exits, kick-ins, stoppages etc under some fatigue and with some opposition, and getting the rotation mix right will have been a focus as well. If you split them up then they miss the chance to work as they will in round one.
They know they've got a more competitive hit out coming in the pre-season games to sharpen up a bit.
That'd be ideal, but they probably want to see who can stand up while they are having thier pants pulled down. Gives them a go against our best & if they can match them it puts them in the mix for a spot for the pre season game at least. If they have no impact they'll be in the VFL.Thanks for the reports and pic's, great stuff.
Might be just me, but I'd much prefer it if they mixed the squads up a bit for the intra club games. Playing the hopefuls against the premiers is always going to be a lop sided game n makes it almost impossible for the young hopefuls to step up n show their capabilities when they are so far under the pump.
Would prefer it if both sides were reasonably balanced in experience n talent n make a genuine contest out of the game.
