Coburg has selected who will be taking on last year’s Grand Finalists Richmond in Saturday’s Round 8 battle at the Swinburne Centre (Punt Road Oval).
One end of the ground will see Peter McEvoy line up alongside Josh Weightman and James Belo, looking to impact the scoreboard, while Nathan Blair, Lochie Dickson and Harry Nolan will feature at the other end of the ground, looking to continue their strong defence.
After a being handed a one week suspension, Nick Mellington will sit the match out, making way for either Mitch Conn, Hisham Kerbatieh, Michael Ercolano, Josh Fox or Ben Allan to come in.
Connor Byrne, Tyson Lever, and Tom Wallis join them on the extended interchange bench.
Sam Binion, a former Northern Knight and current Montmorency footballer, will make his VFL debut as 23rd man after training with the club during the week. Predecessor Jay O’Donoghue has kept his spot and will start in the midfield.
The team will be finalised closer to Saturday’s match, but you can see the full squad in the graphic below!
The match will begin at the earlier time of 10:45am, acting as a curtain raiser to the AFL game scheduled later.
