To Tassie we go!

The Northern Blues will head to the Apple Isle this weekend to take on the Box Hill Hawks at the University of Tasmania Stadium.

From 4:10pm next Saturday, Northern will once again act as the curtain raiser for Carlton’s JLT clash when they do battle with the VFL Hawks.

It will precede Carlton and Hawthorn’s JLT Challenge Series match which kicks off at 7:05pm.

The Blues will be hoping to build on the impressive signs shown in their draw against Sandringham mid-week.

It will be another opportunity for Josh Fraser’s side to gel and both AFL and VFL-listed Blues to get game time under their belt ahead of the home-and-away season.

Once again, a ticket into the JLT clash between Hawthorn and Carlton will grant entry into the VFL practice match.

The Northern Blues’ home-and-away season kicks off on Saturday, April 7, hosting Collingwood at Preston City Oval.
