Cats take first look at new recruit Jenkins

“We are still working out our best combinations and I think it will change obviously throughout the year, depending on how those guys are going, opposition teams, where we play and all those sorts of things,” Enright said.

“The fortunate thing for us is that we have got some depth and that is a good thing.”

The Cats held over several stars with Patrick Dangerfield, Mitch Duncan Joel Selwood, Gary Ablett, Luke Dahlhaus, Brandan Parfitt, Jack Steven and Jack Henry all watching on, although they expect to have 40 players on the track on Monday.

Enright said it was unclear whether Duncan would play before round one but he was confident Selwood would be available for the season opener against the Giants. He said Steven had trained in the morning and was tracking well after a minor calf injury last month.


Collingwood assistant coach Scott Selwood said Jordan De Goey had trained in Melbourne earlier on Thursday and although he missed the match simulation against the Cats he was on track.

“He’s tracking really well and looking really good and I’m looking forward to getting him into games,” Selwood said.

Apart from DeGoey, Mason Cox was sidelined while Jordan Roughead watched on from the boundary. The Magpies were also without Dayne Beams, Travis Varcoe, Tom Langdon and Levi Greenwood, who are already unavailable for round one.

Magpies skipper Scott Pendlebury played while ruckman Brodie Grundy had his minutes managed, appearing later in the session.
