VFL: Set for big stage

North Melbourne's VFL side will play two games at Etihad Stadium, one at the MCG and one at GMHBA Stadium (Geelong) as curtain-raisers to the Roos' AFL team in 2018.

The VFL team, coached by David Loader, will take on the AFL Academy in a practice match ahead of the Round 3 clash against Melbourne at the MCG.

On May 13, North takes on Richmond at Etihad Stadium at 9.15am, ahead of a 1.10pm start for Jack Ziebell and the boys against the reigning premiers.

GMHBA Stadium plays host to both the VFL and AFL Roos' sides on June 9 against Geelong, before another Etihad Stadium fixture on June 23, this time against the Bulldogs.
