Pen hits paper … and former Magpie and Saint Nathan Freeman signs at Frankston. Great get for the Dolphins and it might spur others to commit for 2019. Well done, Frankston.

Bit to play out with the redevelopment but North Melbourne keen to play some VFL games at Arden St next year. Roos have tentatively scheduled the R9 match with Richmond as the first 2019 outing at their traditional home.

Fantastic for the Casey Demons to regain their former captain Evan Panozza. He won Broadbeach’s 2017 best and fairest but is retiring as a player to become an assistant to coach Jade Rawlings. Great Casey clubman.
