MYRTLEFORD will be close to full strength with the exception of their VFL listed players when they take on Wodonga in their Ovens and Murray season opener on Sunday.
Recruit Sam Confait is the only player in doubt after receiving a knock to the eye in the Alpine Saints’ first practice match against Corowa Rutherglen three weeks ago.
So far one of their VFL listed players, Harrison King, is confirmed to run on Sunday, while they will wait on the availability of others.
“Sam Confait didn’t play in the last practice match because we didn’t want him to get another knock on the eye but he’ll have that checked again this week,” co-coach Leigh Corcoran said.
“Harrison King is available for selection with us which is great, he has got the all clear to play and is a stronger bodied midfield forward type.
“We are waiting on Hugh Wales and also Jason Robinson so hopefully we hear sooner rather than later there.”
The Saints’ playing stocks have also been boosted by the arrival of Tom McDonagh from Bright.
