according to the media- prior to the club making any statements

ST KILDA

The Saints are hopeful Leigh Montagna will get up for Round 1 after missing the pre-season series with a calf strain.

An intra-club game on Friday and a Sandringham VFL practice match against Werribee on Saturday are options to give the veteran some match fitness before the showdown against Melbourne.

Otherwise, the Saints are in excellent shape on the injury front.

Mav Weller finished last night’s narrow loss to Sydney with ice on his leg after a corkie and Koby Stevens didn’t take his place in the team after eating what Alan Richardson described as “a bad prawn”.

Nathan Freeman is still in the wilderness while key defender Hugh Goddard (leg) won’t be seen for a while.


a list given last week had 2 or 3 on it.
the only team with less was hawks

I heard on that there radio Joey ruled himself out of round 1. Bad luck for Coughlan - last thing he needed when needing to show something this year.

Can't you only have 3 years on the rookie list or something? The clock starts ticking if you can't put yourself in line for senior selection by your second year. I would have liked to see him tried last year for a game or two but Richo was playing safe not even wanting to play Lee who was playing well in the VFL. Now Brown and Goddard and maybe even Dempster would be ahead of him in that key back role.

Expect the rookie list to be gone as part of the new CBA - neither the AFL or the AFLPA see any use in keeping it, it's just a legacy from when the reserves system was in place.

I'd expect the players on the rookie list will automatically change over to an extended senior list, not sure how this will affect Category B players though.
