Werribee has received a boost both offensively and defensively by the respective inclusions of Josh Corbett and Ryley Barrack for its long-awaited return to Avalon Airport Oval on Saturday night.
The pair will both line up against the Casey Demons for their first VFL game of season 2018 and their side’s first true home game in more than 18 months on the back of strong pre-season form.
Corbett kicked three goals and produced some impressive lead-out marking in Werribee’s practice match victory over Williamstown, while Barrack has continued to deliver through the pre-season the trademark intercepting and defensive rebounding that defined his breakout 2017 year.
Also in line for senior call-ups are forward Jade Cleeland, defender Jack Williams, and midfielder Jack Brauman, who have all been named in the extended 27-man squad, while forward Josh Porter is a precautionary omission due to foot soreness.
The game kicks off under lights at 7pm and will feature pre-game entertainment from 6pm.
