“On paper we won’t have as good a side as last year — on paper we will have as good a side as ’07 — which was good enough to win it.

“We finished top that year so anything is possible.”

Lappin remains hopeful reigning best and fairest winner Sam Higgs will remain at the Magpies with the skilful small training at VFL club Port Melbourne.

“He’s going to play the practice games and see where he is in the whole mix,” he said.

“If it looks like he will play seniors I think he will stay down there, but if he isn’t featuring in their plans he probably will play with us.

“He’s still not sure, I hope it works out for him. He’s a bit of a realist as well, he knows it’s going to be hard because he’s a little bit older than some of them.”

Former Bullants player of course (and played some senior VFL footy there) but if I remember right he was one of the group who knicked off on them just before the season started perhaps in 2007?

I know quite a few of the blokes he went up to Wangaratta with have left there after last years premiership, will be interesting to see what happens with him. He could be just using Port as a training club to get fitness up for the season ahead as a few country players are seeming to do nowadays.

Sam Higgs missed out at Port but has joined back up with the Bullants for 2009.
