Seems the Bendigo people have been very busy recruiting in the local district with quite a few players which is a terrific result, however most of them will be playing with their local clubs because of the fact that Essendon players will dominate the team and with no Bendigo reserves it will become a futile exercise.
Big mistake NO Bendigo reserves. No reserves no club.

Shannon Grant was last years coach of the year and with his fine coaching record will continue his good losing form for Bendigo who will revert to the diggers and play games at Kangaroo Flat.

Grand Final to be played at Warracknabeal.

Seriously,

Is Jack Redpath any realtion to Ian Redpath the formwer cricketer ?
The top five players listed are keys to Bendigo's form for 2010 and with a full list from Eseendon will be naturally much stronger than last year.
Not sure how many games they will win but will at least win a couple of games.
