VFL squad named to face Coburg

Collingwood’s VFL-listed players will have their last chance to impress before the 2019 season in tonight’s practice match against Coburg. 

The game against the Lions will be the last the team play together without the company of the club’s AFL-listed players, who are preparing for next week’s season opener against Geelong.

Places in the VFL team will be hard to come by when Jared Rivers has his full complement of players to choose from, making tonight’s hit-out an important one for several players looking to force their way in to the side.

Alex Woodward will lead the Pies onto the ground after he was announced as captain at last night’s season launch.

His fellow co-captain Jack Hellier will sit out as he rests a knee injury sustained last week.

The first bounce from the Holden Centre will be at 7.30pm.

The squad for tonight’s match is as follows:

46 Jake Spencer

50 Alex Woodward (C)

51 Lachlan Tardew

54 Andrew Gallucci

55 Michael Chippendale

56 Campbell Hustwaite

57 Sam Ralph

58 Tom Cameron

59 Sam Glover

60 Michael Marotta

61 Sean Hetherington

63 Callan Wellings

64 Campbell Lane

65 Lachlan Howe

66 Daniel Stanford

68 Alex Spencer

69 Anthony Zimmerman

70 Jackson Williams

71 Adrian Karatzas

74 Joel Madden

75 Patrick Marks
