Tongala has lined up three practice matches, the first a six-quarter game against Rochester at Tongala Recreation Reserve on March 15.
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.
The seniors side is taking shape and there are still likely to be some additions to the squad before Tongala hosts reigning premiers Echuca United in round one on April 12.
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.
The club is keen on the league’s decision to introduce the red/green vest system, which will provide and opportunity for an under-17s player to be substituted into a seniors match after playing in their junior game.
