So with the new year comes the start of the build up toward the new Premiership campaign for all 18 footy clubs in Australia. The fixture list was released in Oxctober and there are some mouth watering fixtures on the opening weekend of April 2 including Brisbane v Collingwood, Fremantle v Pot Adelaide. But the biggest game of Round 1 has to be on the Monday with the Hawks and Cats squaring off (renewing old wounds) at the MCG http://www.afl.com.au/fixture The AFL Draft was held in November but some good talent within the junior leagues was picked up by the teams during the draft. Paddy McCartin was selected first overall by St. Kilda. I think that is a good starting point for the Saints but they have a long building process ahead. http://www.afl.com.au/news/2014-11-29/how-did-your-club-fare-at-the-2014-draft Next up in the docket is the NAB Challenge, a pre-season tournament held between February 26 to March 22, which allows the teams to shake the cobwebs off prior to the start of the Premiership season. Also it allows the big footy clubs to travel the country and play in venues that don't have live AFL footy week in week out. The tournament kicks off with Hawthorn v Collingwood. http://www.afl.com.au/fixture/nab-challenge
