    Pre-season cup is this weekend down at Endeavour Hills.

    Will be interesting to see what each club brings down and how many have done some recruiting etc over the off season.

    Top 4 predictions? Notable player and coaching movements?

    I am intrigued by Melbourne University forward pack this year. There was the fellow who was playing wing for them but then trained as lock for the Rebels.I am intrigued to see if he is still around and what that means for the forward pack.

    Harlequins have lost a few, i know Hunter Paisami is playing in Qld and I heard Lloyd Johannson had moved on (not confirmed).

    I am also hearing that a few very handy players have turned up at Footscray New and former.however i would imagine like always depth would be an issue there

    Johannson moved on as in to another club or retired?

    Heard multiple rumours but consensus is that he was not at Harlequins anymore

    Anyone get out to the PreSeason cup?

    I tried to watch the facebook stream and wasn't great. Box Hill however appeared to rack up the points

    I got out for a little bit. Moorabbin pulled out due to a lack of players at 9pm the night before it which isn't a great sign.

    Any other comments?

    From what i could make out on the livestream Endeavour Hills and University looked weak.

    Footscray didn't look great either but I heard they gave endeavour hills a hammering in a trial so maybe there is something more there?

    Melbourne looked rusty. Quins look well drilled as always. Footscray didn't have a 1st XV team out I would imagine, but also got punished when giving the ball back to Melbourne. Endeavour Hills look like their normal team, big forward pack that will look to dominate but it's tough to get ascendancy in a 25 minute game.

    Looks like 2 distinct sections in the Dewar Shield - first cross over game this week of Unicorns v Uni of the 4 teams undefeated. What has happened to the Rams this season and what will Quins do to them this weekend?

    Rams have a new coach which has caused a few players to either take a year off or transfer to other teams.

    Looks like he's changed his mind and is back playing at Quins. Been named at 10 for tomorrow's match.
