2017 JLT Series

JLT Review: Saints v Swans

The match was of fairly high quality considering what we’ve had so far this pre-season. It was played in Albury and both teams played pretty strong teams. During the week Alan Richardson said this would be very close to their best 22, and the main player missing was through injury…

JLT Review: Cats v Bombers

Another game of 2 halves for the final round of the JLT series! The Cats were trailing the Bombers at half time by 40pts but ended up running over the top to win the contest by 22pts. We all need to understand however that these games are preseason practice matches…

JLT Review: Port v Hawks

The Power rewarded fans who took the trip down South to Noarlunga with a 28 point win over the Hawks in a game which we had many players to monitor with interest in their final JLT series hit-out. The game was played with a noticeably strong wind and there were periods…

JLT Review: Giants v Roos

A very interesting game was played in the nation’s capital yesterday! The Giants didn’t really get out of second gear all day in this game yet they ran out convincing 6 goal winners after trailing by 8 at half time. The young Roos side showed plenty of grit and once…

JLT Review: Eagles v Dees

West Coast were thoroughly deserved 25-point winners against Melbourne as both sides put forward their best lineups in a Round 1 dress rehearsal. In terms of game plan the Eagles were happy to possess the ball in their defensive half and slowly work the ball up the ground, but also quick…

JLT Review: Suns v Dogs

Gold Coast & Western Bulldogs did battle in the twilight game and for both sides, we got a good glimpse not only at some potential new game style and role adjustments. For the first time in the JLT Series we also got our first look at Brownlow Medalist Gary Ablett…
