Actually, I've named Eames twice. He starts first ruck. Spriggs, you're in

[quote="theobserver"]How does this side look, folks? I couldn't fit Spriggs in, unfortunately. James Byrne would have to be captain. Backs - Height Livingston Biddlecomb HBacks - Obst Baird Cloke Centres - Summers Byrnes Davenport HForwards - Berry Crowe Poyas F forwards -Cartledge Podsiadly Castello RUCKS Eames Johnson Valenti PINE: Robbins Neville Eames Nahass[/quote] That's a well picked side. I notice Sautner doesn't make your side. I tend to agree, I think he has had chances in previous state games without having a major impact. I did read he was injured in the last two encounters, but I think it is worth moving on. Nahas in! "Lock it in thanks Eddie"

Yes Observer, It's the same Bossong. He must have improved a bit!

Yeah, I left him out. I remember his last state game. He supposedly got some sort of serious shoulder injury and went off the ground. But he managed to play the next week. But if he plays, good on him. He'll do OK.

There might be a doubt on Rodney Crowe. The Casey Radio boys said he got a heavy bump on Saturday and didn't come out again

Was very unimpressive at Port, played alright in the game over at Leederville Oval against the Vics.

THE list of injured and unavailable for the VFL's upcoming representative match contains top-drawer players. Hayden Skipworth, Digby Morrell, Chad Liddell, David Gallagher, Thomas Roach and Jeremy Dukes have been ruled out. But the VFL will still put out a powerful team in Saturday's representative match against the WAFL at Port Melbourne. An influx of former AFL players to the competition spoilt coach Mark Williams and his selectors for choice, to the extent they could find no room for Casey Scorpions' Troy Makepeace, the classy 139-game former Kangaroo. As league general manager and chairman of selectors Martin Stillman put it: ``It's a tough job when you have got so many players in form but it's a good position to be in. ``There's a completely new wave of players coming through for Victoria.'' Seventeen former AFL men are in the squad, which also contains 30 players who have never worn the VFL jumper. Only five turned out in the team that lost to the SANFL in 2005, and only Chris Obst and James Byrne remain from 2004, when the Vics edged the WAFL by 11 points in Perth. The VFL selectors will announce their team of 22 players and three emergencies on Tuesday. The final training session will be held at Port Melbourne on Thursday. Geelong centreman Byrne appeals as the likely captain. At Port Melbourne, the VFL will have a pronounced home ground advantage. When WAFL officials contacted Stillman for the ground dimensions, he was tempted to tell them to go a supermarket, buy a sardine tin and take it from there. The WAFL is noted for flowing football on open grounds and its assistant coach, David Dunbar, said the WA players would have to adjust to the tight TEAC Oval. He said coach Ash Prescott, the former Richmond player, was mindful of ``picking guys who can play in-tight footy and enjoy the physical contests''. Williams said the VFL team would be out to apply constant pressure on its opponent, to nullify its skills. ``We've got some big bodies. We're used to playing contested footy and we'll try to tighten the game up and not allow them to get their running game going,'' he said. The VFL and WAFL have met nine times, and the Vics' win in 2004 at Leederville Oval was their first. The WAFL last played the VFL in Victoria in 1958, at the South Melbourne Cricket Ground. Entry to Saturday's match will be free.
