Melbourne’s first goal this season showed that Australian Australian Max Gawn could score his surprising goal

Gawn dominated the game from the jerk, but alternated between spinning with Luke Jackson to score two goals, he missed two more shots that he should have converted

Gawn has often stepped behind the ball behind the ball as a classic kick to aid in defense, but on Friday Casey Fields looked impressive as a real target to push forward

Tom McDonald, the forgotten striker who was available for trade at the end of the year when the Demons brought in former North Melbourne front runner Ben Brown, looked just as menacing as he had in the practice game for more than a year against Richmond

McDonald pushed high on the ground especially early for a good release kick. He was a striker and looked good in a game the Demons won by 11 points

“On his own account, Tommy didn’t have the best year he wanted last year”It came out in the off-season and I saw it up close He set the tone for how he wanted to come back really early on, and we saw today that it was a good reward for him ? Defense attorney Jake Lever said

Melbourne stars Clayton Oliver and Christian Petracca were particularly impressive Veteran Nathan Jones played high half forward and occasionally on the wing and did well Bailey Fritsch has booted three

Bachar Houli is unlikely to be eligible for the first round as he struggles with a calf injury. The Tigers put young Hugo Ralph-Smith in an ongoing defender role last season and nodded to him in the main game in front of Marlion Pickett who did this Pickett played well in the second of the day’s practice games, mixing his time between center-back, wing and midfield

Ralph Smith was impressive in full hit with clever, clean hands and good use of the ball He’s got a good run and looked good in the role

– Hugo raised his hand to fill this place last season. He was really ready today and we’ll see how he fares against Collingwood next week Assistant coach Adam Kingsley said

Josh Caddy also played over half the previous season, but was used again on a wing in the practice game and did well

Jake Aarts was doing well for the Tigers and Jack Ross was making more time in midfield Ross looked good doing some smart things He maybe hit the kick of the day in the third quarter when he was on the run and under pressure from Jack Riewoldt looked in the opposite pocket and shot a flat kick across his body to find the full striker

Shae Bolton half forward was good for the Tiger Dion Prestia didn’t play as he was recovering from an injury

Thompson Dow came on in the final quarter of the main game when a number of Tigers, including Dusty Martin and Shane Edwards, were eliminated after their set minutes

Jayden Hunt started his career as a dashing runner outside of defense before moving to half a line of strikers in recent years His defensive focus and loose kick resulted in him being pushed to attack and no longer able to Using the ball outside of defense this year, the Demons seem to be envisaging a return for him to the backline, where his speed and daring setback, especially with Ed Langdon on a wing, gave the Demons a tremendous boost off the backline on Friday gave

â ???? He’s going to be a very valuable player to us down there where Hunty was two or three years ago his defensive stuff wasn’t as good as his offensive stuff but now it’s really on par with the way he can defend at the moment , is top notch Lever said

James Jordan looked good for the Demons, Charlie Spargo started a pair and Kyle Chandler three goals, which was a strong argument for being on the first round

“It’s no surprise to us, we’ve seen Jimmy Jordan for nine weeks now and even last year he was very stiff so we were happy with him today,” Hebel said

Whether it was the new rule or familiarity with the size of the floor Melbourne looked faster from the sides with their ball use and ran down the corridor of the floor

“Melbourne was able to hit the corridor a bit more than we would have liked, maybe that was the new rule, maybe we were a little sloppy on defense,” Richmond assistant coach Adam Kingsley said

Maurice Rioli Junior had his first goal for the Tigers in the second practice game

Maurice Junior, or MJ, a little striker with pressure, was lively and scored a few goals in three half-hour games
