AFLX squads announced

The teams are in for the inaugural AFLX tournament, and it certainly appears some are in it to win it.

Like any pre-season game, the teams are not at full strength, as coaches look to explore their options, but fans will be able to see plenty of stars in action. 

Five of last 2017’s top 10 draft picks will feature at Etihad Stadium, as well as established stars such as David Zaharakis, Shaun Higgins and Christian Petracca.

North will tackle Melbourne and Carlton for a spot in the final on Friday night.
