Team Selection: TAC Cup – Round 10

IN the first of two Futures rounds, TAC Cup sides are able to play 24 players and show off mostly bottom-age talent in what is a round for recruiters to look to 2019 and beyond. There is still plenty of good top-age talent on show despite the Victorian sides facing off at the MCG, with Murray Bushrangers having some massive inclusions to their side.


Round 10 – Saturday, June 23, 10.30am
Box Hill City Oval, Box Hill

In one of three morning games, the Eastern Ranges will look to make it three consecutive wins when it hosts Calder Cannons at Box Hill on Saturday. The Ranges have lost Xavier Fry and James Blanck to Vic Metro duties, preferring to grace the hallowed turf at the MCG on Sunday. Eastern has named an extended bench with Todd Garner (brother of Port’s Joel), Cooper Leon and James Ross brought into the team. For the Cannons, Shane Skidmore returns to the side, joined in the squad of 24 with Jeremy O’Sullivan, Cooper Lamb and Anthony Righele.

Round 10 – Saturday, June 23, 1pm
Shepley Oval, Dandenong

Dandenong are four points and percentage clear of second place on top of the table, and will look to maintain their advantage against the GWV Rebels at Shepley Oval on Saturday.

The Stingrays have named an extended bench with Jai Taylor returning from Vic Country duty, while Stephen Cumming, Finlay Bayne and Daniel Frampton are among other important inclusions. Top bottom-ager Hayden Young will have a chance to run around on the MCG, as does Will Hamill, while Jack Harmes is another omission from the side. For the Rebels, Scott Carlin will pull on the Big V this Saturday, and his half-back spot will be taken by fellow Vic Country member Matty Lloyd. Angus Gove and Connor Giddings are the other outs, while Toby Mahony and Harrison Butler are among the five inclusions.
