According to the Tigers the following players are unlikely to be playing tomorrow:

Dustin Martin, Tom Lynch, Dion Prestia, Toby Nankervis

Toiyges have announced:

Missing from Richmond’s team is Dion Prestia (hamstring), Dustin Martin (managed), Tim Taranto (managed), Liam Baker (family reason), Toby Nankervis (managed), Tom Lynch (building match fitness), Jacob Bauer (hamstring) and Liam Fawcett (back). 

Veteran Dylan Grimes, who has returned to the main training group after a calf complaints, has also been managed.

 

So we haven't got a forward line, they haven't got a backline, and their midfield is Hopper, Ross and Bolton....should be a ripper match!

MATCH SIM SQUADS: Dees' shock Clarry call, Tiger returns

MELBOURNE has named Clayton Oliver for its match simulation against Richmond on Sunday despite the star midfielder only rejoining his teammates for pre-season training three weeks ago, while Tigers young gun Josh Gibcus will have his first serious hitout since the 2022 elimination final.

The action at Casey Fields on Sunday will be played across seven periods, with the number of players taking part up to the clubs involved. It means it's not clear how much Oliver will take part in the action, but it's likely the star midfielder will be on limited minutes given his interrupted summer.

After battling injuries and medical issues for most of last season and facing questions over his off-field behaviour during a tumultuous Trade Period, Oliver took extended leave from the club in December to focus on his personal wellbeing and only returned to training in the rehab group on January 31.

Gibcus hasn't been seen since his eye-catching debut season in 2022 when he played 18 games after being selected at pick No.9 in the 2021 AFL Draft.

The young Tiger's complex hamstring tendon injury required surgery early last year and eventually resulted in a trip to an internationally renowned sports medicine practice in Qatar during the off-season.

Melbourne defender-turned-forward Harrison Petty, who missed the finals last year due to a Lisfranc injury, suffered a fresh setback this week with a toe injury keeping him out of the match sim, while winger Lachie Hunter will also miss due to a persistent calf issue.

Angus Brayshaw won't play as he continues to integrate back into full training following the concussion injury he sustained in the qualifying final last year, while Ben Brown (knee) Tom Fullarton (hamstring) and Jake Melksham (knee) will also miss due to injury.

Charlie Spargo, Shane McAdam and Tom McDonald are notable absentees from the squad.

Richmond will also be without a host of big names for the clash including skipper Toby Nankervis, former co-captain Dylan Grimes, midfield trio Dion Prestia, Dustin Martin, and Tim Taranto as well as forward Tom Lynch.

Grimes (calf), Martin (ankle) and Prestia (hamstring) are all expected to feature in the Tigers' AFL Community Series match against Collingwood on Tuesday, February 27, while Lynch (foot) has only just returned to the main group and isn't expected to play until round one after being ruled out of the Tigers' Opening Round clash against Gold Coast.

Nankervis is managing a sore foot but isn't considered in any doubt for Opening Round at this stage.

East Perth forward Mitch Schofield and New Zealander Mykelti Lefau will both get one final chance to impress for a spot on the rookie list in the practice match against the Demons. The pair joined the club when the pre-season supplemental selection period opened on November 27 and have completed the full program across the pre-season.

AFL-listed players Hugo Ralphsmith, Judson Clarke, Matthew Coulthard, Noah Cumberland, Oliver Hayes-Brown and Kaleb Smith have been named in Richmond's 'B' squad to play in the second half of the match.

Sunday's match simulation will be broadcast live on Fox Footy, available on Kayo Sports and Foxtel.

Gates open at 9.30am with the match to start at 10am. Entry is free.

The eight other club-arranged match simulations will be played between February 21-24, with the format, including the length of quarters or periods and squad sizes, determined by the clubs involved.

Following the match sims, all 18 clubs will play official practice games in the AFL Community Series between February 27 and March 3.

Melbourne v Richmond at Casey Fields, 10am AEDT
(Seven-quarter match sim)

There's zero chance of Oliver playing in the seconds.  He may only play 2 or 3 quarters, but he's not playing seconds.

Only reason people are positing that he plays in the seconds is based on who he trained with this morning.

Article in the Age says he will play the last three quarters

Clayton Oliver will play in Melbourne’s match simulation against Richmond on Sunday – but not with the senior side – as he races the clock to be ready for the start of the home-and-away season.

Oliver will not be part of an under-strength Demons team, also missing a host of stars including Christian Salem, Harrison Petty and recruit Shane McAdam, for the first four of the seven periods set aside for the AFL team and will instead take the field with the reserves for the final three stanzas at Casey Fields.

Maybe it's more than just fitness that might keep Clarry away from the ones.

I doubt that.

Fitting in well at training.

Just hasn't done much with a group.

Looked ready and drilled well today with the Casey group.

The seconds also did more extensive sims, I believe, so they get know each other.

The selectors may change their minds given he had no trouble with fitness, but I doubt it.

Those young ones get an opportunity with Clarry out.

Some updates on the injury front filling in the blanks above.

Turner (stress fracture leg) 10-12 weeks

Melbourne have also noted that Angus Brayshaw (illness), Taj Woewodin(concussion) and Andy Moniz-Wakefield(thigh) won't feature in Sunday's match simulation.

The Demons are already without the likes of Ben Brown (knee) and Tom Fullarton(hamstring) for the start of the 2024 season.

So we haven't got a forward line, they haven't got a backline, and their midfield is Hopper, Ross and Bolton....should be a ripper match!

George what has happened to the Membership total forum. Can you please advise ?

When the seniors were done and all the Casey boys were out there with Salo, Clarrie, etc. for one drill the coach yelled out "If you're not in the 18 tomorrow, put on a yellow bib." Clarrie, Salo, Marty Hore, Jed Adams, etc. didn't put on bibs.

Interesting. Did any other Demon listed players put on a yellow bib? Eg: Tholstrup?

I imagine he was talking about the second 18 side.

Means we should see Salem and Clarry run around in the 4th quarter tomorrow.

The injuries tht we have are bloody concerning. We are less than 20 days out from the start of our season and we are missing way too many players. Whilst hopeful they get up in time, I’m expecting a horror start to 2024, which will only drive more questions from the media and a return of a lot of negativity amongst supporters. Just my take

Melky weighted and change of angles work. Salem has his individual program. White cap (no contact), Howes, Woewodin and Sparrow

    GALLANT by KC from Casey

    The world “gallant” is not one that is readily acceptable to losing teams in our game of football so when it was used in the context of the Casey Demons’ loss to Sandringham in yesterday’s match at Casey Fields, it left a bitter taste in the mouth.  The Demons went into the game against the St Kilda affiliated Zebras with the advantage of playing on their home turf (not that this has been a major asset in 2024) and with very little else going in their favour. The Saints have close to a full

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w

    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
