CASEY: RD 13 vs North Melbourne VFL



Recommended Posts

Casey’s opponent this week is North Melbourne VFL which, like the Demons, had no trouble in dispensing with Collingwood at their last outing.

Casey needs to keep winning if it is to fall into a top 10 placing and play finals. They have to reproduce the form they displayed against Collingwood.

Brown, Schache, Jefferson, Fullarton and Kentfield all most likely playing. Someone surely goes to the backline.

Looking forward to see Kentfield again..

Fullarton perhaps going to be held over as an emergency.

Would like to see Schache go back where he's played before at the bulldogs. Leaves us with Brown, Jefferson and Kentfield forward with Brown used sparingly as a ruck chop out.

Edit: ignore above, brain isn't braining today

If we hold him over how is he meant to work his way into the side?

very frustrating the vfl fixturing

Beat me to it @rjay, Casey game is the day after AFL game, so holdover will be available to play (barring disaster and the need for them to play full game in the ones!).

I presume you mean that the loss of one of the named 23 would be the disaster, not Fullarton getting a game in the ones? He's not that bad, is he?

We should have a reasonable contingent of listed MFC players available:

Billings, Laurie, Schache, Jefferson, McAdam, Adams, Verrall, Fullarton, Sestan, Woewodin, AMW, B.Brown and maybe the MFC sub depending on how musch AFL game time they get.

We patiently await team selection: 

‘Clark’ Kentfield must out looking for a telephone box.

Ben Brown injured? Hadn't heard this through the MFC website.

Played significant ruck minutes last match.  Looks like that experiment went well.

Could be just a malicious rumour, but I did hear somewhere that his knees are not quite 100% 🤫

For the regular Casey watchers, how is Jed Adams tracking?

Good size, plays every week, but we don't hear much. Just wondering if there's signs we have someone who could potentially do a decent job in May's role in a few years.

Has the odd decent game but generally had shown little to suggest he will make the grade. About on par with the solid Casey listed players.

The reserves and VFL are a joke, why does a club need 4 byes per season only one is needed since there are 21 teams. The match against Collingwood reserves wasn't selected until the day we played them because our senior side was playing on the following monday. Does the club want a reserves side ?

Harsh but fair.

Casey are now playing the fast corridor game and more often than not one handball too many. The most powerful weapon these days is the 30 metre kick at a 45 degree angle to a free running player. Unfortunately because we push up so high there is rarely a player to take advantage of the counterattack

    GAMEDAY: Rd 19 vs Fremantle

    It's Game Day and the Demons have a golden opportunity to stamp their 2024 finals credentials as well as make amends for their disastrous first meeting against the Dockers earlier in the season when they take on Fremantle at Optus Stadium.

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    DEMONLAND - Good evening, Demon fans and welcome back to the Demonland 2024 Grand Final Podcast ... before we took that last phone call from a Demonlander, we were discussing how the club overcame it’s midseason slump, the season-ending injury to Christian Petracca and the loss for a brief period of skipper Max Gawn due to a  crack to the base of his right fibula, to slowly surge up the ladder turning our detractors into believers and how it ended the year triumphant in the finals with our capta

    EARLY BIRDS by KC from Casey

    Wet, slippery conditions and threatening rainfalls greeted the VFL Bombers at the end of their long journey southeast of the big city on Sunday. The threatening weather combined with the fact that neither side had realistic prospects of advancing to action in September, meant that spectators gathered at a cold Casey Fields weren’t expecting a classic exhibition of football. Nor did they get one. Instead they were presented with a dour struggle that never reached great heights. It was a

    HEAVENS ABOVE by Molly Melbourne

    Who said the football gods and scoreboard attendants at the MCG don’t have a sense of humour? The gods spent a whole week teasing Demon and Bomber fans alike about Saturday night’s game. About how the entire match would be dominated by the hulking, brooding figures of 205cm Sam Draper and his 2IC Peter Wright lapping it up in the absence of Melbourne skipper and the club's No.1, No 2, No 3 and No 4 ruckman Max Gawn in the wake of that ankle injury. They painted pictures of Simon Goodwin ne

    The Demonland Podcast will not be LIVE again this week. Binman will do his regular stats files segment for the game against the Bombers and will also preview the upcoming match against the Dockers. He will not be taking any questions. I will post the show here once I receive Binman's stats files. You can also find it wherever you get your podcasts from. We will return in our regular format once I return after the Dockers match.
