Geelong v Casey Scorpions 



Recommended Posts

Like last year, the Casey Scorpions will take on Geelong VFL at Simonds Stadium on Saturday in the curtain raiser to the Geelong v Melbourne game. 

Unlike last year, when the VFL Cats were the underdogs and won by 128 points in an ominous preview of the later game, this year they will start as favourites. 

And seating will be hard to get for the Casey folk according to the VFL website.

Due to the redevelopment of Simonds Stadium (involving the Doug Wade Stand and the Southern Terrace), a large number of reserved seats at the Stadium have been lost. As a result, this has had an impact on the entry details for VFL curtain raiser matches.  

VFL Club supporters and general public will be required to pre-book general admission standing room entry or a daily reserved seat prior to the match to guarantee their entry on match-day. 

Please see the information below about Peter Jackson VFL games that will be influenced. 

Please note: VFL Passes and Club Memberships WILL NOT give you access to Simonds Stadium for these games. All supporters must book a ticket through Ticketmaster.

I'll be back tomorrow night with the VFL teams. The Development League team has its second bye of the season this weekend (the first was just three weeks ago).

I'll be there bright and early! Lets hope for a better result than last year in both games (one we're not allowed to mention).

Also looking forward to seeing for the first time Rory Taggert and the possibility of Jurrah and Viney running around!

Good to see Jurrah and Gysberts back and look forward to seeing how Viney goes. Hope to see Taggert get a run.

Agree with your thoughts. I hope Sheehan keeps up his good start to the season as well.I feel he has a bright future along with Cook whom hopefully keeps on improving after gaining further fitness.

No Gysberts?

KC has him listed in the middle in the team above!

May as well be as far as "visiting" clubs and fans are concerned.

I hope 7 put together a highlights package to show at half time in the main game... quite possible considering Jurrah is making his return, Viney is making his debut and Watts is trying to atone for his relatively poor form.

Fifteen listed Demons plus Viney in that side! 

That makes Gawn, Green, Jetta, Martin, MacDonald (slated as non-playing first emergency), Strauss and Tynan (plus rookies Williams and Evans) as the only listed players who arent suiting up this weekend, thats a good sign!

Given the now greatly reduced injury list I'd expect our performances at both VFL and AFL level to improve accordingly.

A couple of premiership players on the wing for the Cats in Wojo and Byrnes! 

Also see they have 17 listed Cats players named, but apart from those two very few senior games experience in their lineup.

Just priceless to get Viney in there, I can't stress that enough.

Other clubs cannot get their future first round pick into their system a year early and show them the structures that, evidently, take ages to learn.

And people get to see the 'brick wall with eyes' in the flesh.

The juxtaposition to Watts will be unfair but that is footy.

Good luck to all involved and to LJ who I am still behind as he moves into an incredibly important May and coming months...

Can't see Geelong's vaunted depth and smooth transition to replace their veterans in that group, but it's true that I'm not very familiar with them. Sure they've got plenty of their youth into their 1sts but they've still got plenty of veterans in the twilight of their careers. Our side looks much stronger - result will be fascinating.

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k
