Werribee vs Box Hill Practice Match

Wandered down to Chirnside Park last night and from a Box Hill viewpoint liked what I saw.

Box Hill went in with only 3 AFL listed players (Beau Dowler, Jordan Lisle, Tim Boyle) while Weribee seemed to have a full compliment of Kangaroos. Box Hill also rested the co-captains (Lukas Markovic and Steve Kenna) and star recruit Adem Yze.

The Mustangs played a sensational brand of football in the first half, leading by 54 points (11 goals to 2) at the main break. At half time the coach made mass changes, with a dozen of the players who starred in the first half told to have a shower while the B-team was brought on with instuctioins to defend the lead. This they managed to do with Box Hill finishing clear winners by a couple of goals.

I liked the look of new Box Hill players like Curnow, Fagan, Iles and George.

Box Hill has certainly strengthened its list and if it can get a reasonable number of AFL listed players regualrly should be improvers.

BTW the lights at Werribee are quite good, certianly as good as Casey if not quite as bright as North Ballarat. They need to illuminate the scoreboard though!
