U23 North v South?
Haven't heard anything, but I can only assume this game wont be on this year given we've heard nothing about it. It was sort of homeless for a few years, rotating between the Thursday of Grand Final week and the curtain raiser to the state games mid year. A good concept though. I'm sure there was a suggestion made that it be played on VFL Prelim Final weekend on the alternate day to the Reserves Grand Final. Anybody know if its on this year?

Hopefully the VFL announce something tomorrow about it if it is happening or not. There'd going to be some good players available. I guess the North side suffers most depth wise with the Roosters, Williamstown and Werribee still in finals.

[quote="jubjub"]thats terrible form if its a no go, vfl is going down the shitter, if they dont wanna showcase there young talent[/quote] They are more interested in showing off the schoolboy footballers( TAC )than young proven footballers who have competed against AFL footballers. Bit like taken pot luck when you buy a 2 year old racehorse hopeing it will win a race as opposed to a tried and proven 3 year old who shows potential.

Whats not to get? They want to see the kids who are going to play AFL, and the kids who are playing good Footy in the TAC Cup are showing they can play week in and out.. No offence but the TAC Cup is where the better players get drafted.. They ones who get drafted from VFL just need more time to develop and will be good.. But the TAC Cup kids are better
