From The Age

By Paul Sakkal & Daniel Cherny

The AFL is set to announce a marked increase in the amount of VFL curtain-raisers to be held before AFL matches in season 2019.

It's understood while curtain-raisers will definitely be played at Marvel Stadium, negotiations are still underway for curtain-raisers to also be played at the MCG.

The move represents a significant increase on the handful of curtain-raisers held in 2018, three of which took place at GMHBA Stadium in Geelong.

What more does Michael Gibbons need to do to get onto an AFL list?

The Williamstown VFL player is a dual JJ Liston Trophy winner (VFL Best & Fairest Winner) at just 23 years of age, but continues to be snubbed by AFL clubs.

Former Melbourne and Sydney coach Paul Roos told Fox Footy’s On The Couch in August that Gibbons was worthy of a spot on an AFL list and could help struggling clubs down the bottom of the ladder.

The three-time VFL Team of the Year winner also won the 2015 Norm Goss Medal as the best player in the VFL Grand Final.

“Now Micky Gibbons is now playing for Williamstown in the VFL, he was as standout young kid that played I think two years in the Rams (NSW-ACT) program as a bottom-age kid and played as a top-age kid.

"I'm in good spirits. One door closes and another one opens."

De-listed Hawk veteran Brendan Whitecross has been thrown a lifeline, accepting a coaching role with North Melbourne.
 

The Kangaroos signed the former Hawk as a development coach and player for the club's VFL team.

Hawthorn announced last Monday that Whitecross and VFL teammate Kieran Lovell would not be offered contracts for next season.

"Brendan will play an instrumental role in helping to develop our younger players," Kangaroos football manager Cameron Joyce said.

"He's always had great versatility, playing forward, back or through the midfield, which will be beneficial.

"He knows what it takes to be successful and work through adversity and will set a great example for our younger players coming through.
