Closed session friendly maybe?

Am I misremembering that occasionally, a club might play a closed session friendly against some form of rival? I'm aware of the opposed session, which is a game of mixed members of the squad.

And I'm sure the idea of a semi-competitive game midweek holds so much risk... But we are in a desperate situation. Anything that might have a "Bulldogs first grade side" winning a game, might be worth it?

I know... I'm a desperate fan at the moment :cry:

Maybe Barrett wants to look at some players he could bring in like Deitz, Schoupp and Ava

Probably already has an idea who he wants to bring in, just has to bide his time like we all do and have been so damn patiently lol.!!!

Tarsha Gale Cup side would not guarantee a win so who could we pick?....

The kennel v Bulldogs
@ASSASSIN did say in another thread that he is happy to take a run at Napa. Even with two shot knees i'd still smoke by Hoppa having a run. Sad thing is, the way the Dogs are playing, a rag tag crew of Kennel members coming together would probably show more heart and guts (literally and figuratively speaking).

I heard the Mounties knocked the grade team in a friendly before season started. Maybe it’s just a rumour but I can see it actually happening

Wallah I'd run at it. I'd even make it a charity event and all proceeds going to St Vincent's Heart and Lung Clinic.
