AFL pre-season: Who were the winners and losers of the JLT?

JLT Winners? Well, if there were “moral” pre-season premiers, Richmond, Carlton and Gold Coast might have all been in a play-off for a “who got most out of it” decider.

The Tigers, in two thumping wins over Essendon and North Melbourne, looked like they hadn’t even had an off-season, both wins just continuations of that irresistible pressure they brought to the finals stage last year.

Two of the biggest stars, Dustin Martin and Trent Cotchin, were excellent in both games, as was Josh Caddy. Coach Damien Hardwick tweaked a few things in positional terms with success. And Shai Bolton and Reece Conca both pushed their claims for inclusion in the opening round line-up hard indeed.
