    So I suppose for the bye rounds it will likely be two sets of 6 teams with a bye and then one round where only 4 teams have a bye to account for Port and GC?

    Who knows what they're going to do, it's the AFL we're talking about here. But yes, I reckon that's the way they'll probably end up programming the bye period.

    Re: 2017 AFL Draw

    HAWTHORN's emotional reunion with former premiership skipper, five-time best and fairest winner and now West Coast midfielder Sam Mitchell will take place at the MCG in round five next season.

    The 2017 AFL fixture, to be revealed in full on Thursday, will also confirm the first clash between the Hawks and their former vice-captain Jordan Lewis, who now plays for Melbourne, has been slated for the MCG in round seven.

    The clash between the Hawks and the Eagles will be their only meeting for the season and has been scheduled for a 4.40pm AEST start on Sunday, April 23 during the elongated Anzac Day round.

    Re: 2017 AFL Draw

    The all important MBRs:

    Rd 9: GCS, PTA

    Rd 11: BRL, CAR, MEL, STK, SYD, WBD
    Rd 12: GEE, NTH, RIC, WCE
    Rd 13: ADE, COL, ESS, FRE, GWS, HAW

    First impression is that rd 12 looks very cruisy, but rd 13 will be tough for the mids in particular.

    Most midfields will run a heavy split across R11 & R13 with Danger + Dusty thrown into the middle.

    R11: Bont, JPK, Hanners, Heeney, Libba, Steven, Rocky & Cripps.

    R12: Danger, Selwood, Dusty, Gaf & Shuey.

    R13: Sloane, Pendles, Treloar, Sidey, Heppell, Zerrett, Stants, Fyfe, Neale, Ward, Shiel, Kelly, Cogs, JOM & Mitchell.

    2017 will also be the first time since 2010 that Freo have played Ess in Melb.

    Re: 2017 AFL Draw

    It will be the first time the Bulldogs have played us at Adelaide Oval.

    We haven't played Carlton in Adelaide since 2010. Which I don't mind since it represents an opportunity to play at the MCG.

    Also props to the AFL for trying to fix Friday Night Football. Sydney, Adelaide and the Bulldogs with the lions share of the timeslot.

    Really happy with our draw for 2017.

    Hinkley will be out the door next season if we don't make the finals for a 3rd consecutive season.
