The Blues will then host Mallee Eagles on March 22 and a club from the Wagga Wagga region, which includes former local star Nic Casey, on March 29.

Last season’s standouts Jordan Souter, Tom Donnell and Adam Lovison are all returning and new signings include the returning Daryl Harrison, Ben Holman, Corey Atkinson-Harlen and two further as yet unnamed recruits.
Newman is also planning to give more game time to young players Connor Cowley, Bryce Denham, Ben Gledhill, Jordan Mulholland, James Belcher and Corey Nexhip.
