AFL Real Footy Podcast Round One Preview 2023
Four AFL teams have new coaches this season – Adam Kingsley at GWS, Brad Scott at Essendon, Ross Lyon at St Kilda and Alastair Clarkson at North Melbourne.
This week on the Real Footy Podcast, Michael Gleeson, Jake Niall and Caroline Wilson discuss which senior coach is best placed to lift his team quickly and which one is in the best position over the long term. Whose list is more promising and why? And which coach has another major task to deal with in addition to building his club on the pitch?
Also this week we look ahead to the first round and the most anticipated moments from these games. It all starts with a Carlton-Richmond blockbuster where Richmond will debut Tim Taranto and Jacob Hopper and Carlton could make some highly rated draftees AFL debuts. Those who play do so in front of a jam-packed MCG, which is a highlight in itself.
On Friday night, the Pies and Cats meet in 2022 after a hard-fought qualifier final. Will Geelong be a juggernaut this year? Having landed a big deal, how will Dan McStay fare on the Collingwood big stage? After the impressive debut in 2022, what will Nick Daicos season 2 look like?
How will Max Gawn and Brodie Grundy play together for Melbourne? And could her game with the Bulldogs be the match of the round? Do the Suns need to play finals for their year to be a success?
Also, whether Tom De Koning is likely to stay with the Blues, hopes for the injury-plagued Saints and whether the 100-goal forward’s days are over.
