i think 2 trials is the sweet spot, we complained when des only played one trial, but any more than 2 and its just unnecessary risk of injury etc

Can anyone confirm how many trial games we are playing and when? I am getting the shakes for some doggies games and it seems we are only playing a game on the 27th Feb against the sharks

Dan Ferris (the High Performance boss) said on the Bulldogs site that we were playing 2 trials......we know about the Cronulla one, but no mention yet on the second.............have a listen around the 50 second mark under the video "Ferris pleased with Bulldogs pre season training........"

I think due to Covid each team is limited to one “official” trial. Though I think teams will be organising in-house trial games. I think we did one last year with the Tigers?

Trials are good because I’m hanging out for some footy by February but they are usually terrible to watch. The weather, match fitness and amount of players used doesn’t really give a indication about anything.
I agree but a sausage sizzle and a beer out at Belmore on a Saturday arvo is still a pretty good day out.

You just gave me ptsd remembering hopeless they are at streaming these things at maximum 480p continually buffering, not starting when the game starts, hillbilly commentators audio quality from the 1920s.

I don't think 1 trial match is enough that's why I think a preseason Cup would be good
the teams in training do alot of opposed work, full contact. One trial is enough IMO, then the players also dont burn out.
