Bradley in second row and Loiero at lock are interesting .

Bradley covers wing in to second row, I would love to see him nab a bench spot

Really keen to see how a few of these guys go, particularly Paps back from injury, along with some fringe guys like Russell-Smith, Powell, Bradley, Vaalepu and Hinchy.

I’d also like to see Reimis and Marion step up and put their hand up for a centre spot, it’s now or never for these 2.

Kinda depressing that those are still our outside backs options.

Had thought Chris Lewis had left?

I love that the game is on Fox and is being telecast and treated like a proper game, got pre-game analysis and everything very exciting to see usually pre season is a lot of checking scores on Twitter or trying to get down to the field so this is nice.

Only change I’ve noticed is Wishart has replaced Garlick at 9 who is out of the squad entirely and young Coby Williamson replaces Katoa on the wing.

Footys back!! ⚡️

1st minute - Papenhuyzen with a nice first touch, wrong foot’s a defender and we complete well. Pezet looks to have a decent boot too.

3rd minute - Some nice goal line defence, Smith and Seve both making vital tackles. But we are penalised for a late hit by Pene.

5th minute - Bulldogs try, awful rushing defence from Coby Williamson, terrible read. 2 penalties conceded already Bellamy won’t be happy.

Burton converts, Bulldogs lead 6-0
