Thanks for posting this up Robbo. It will be interesting to see how the Bombers go. I had heard that the Essendon recruiting had been ok. I have no real idea of the strength of their list.
These games up in the NT can turn up the odd surprise result too.

I'll start up a Practice match thread in the coming weeks as some of that information begins to be put out by the clubs. 👍

Decent contest overall. Low-scoring but that's no surprise given the short quarters and the wet weather.

Wow. Far more one-sided than I was expecting.

I thought it would be fairly even until NT pulled away late as fatigue set in.

I saw one photo from the ground. Looked to be a decent sized crowd there.
