Dockers on Rotto

Naturally, in the last frenzied weeks of the footy season, there's a Rotto factor.
The Age reports today that an under-17 Victorian team, Doncaster Heights, has left for WA to play a team here " a curtain-raiser to the Dockers' Saturday night match against Port Adelaide".
"The under-17 team's trip to Perth will include a tour of Rottnest Island, where there will be a guest-speaking appearance from Dockers captain Peter Bell, a team meeting led by Fremantle coach Chris Connolly, a barbecue with Dockers players and a rehabilitation session at Fremantle Football Club after the match", The Age says.
Peter 'Ding Dong' Bell on Rotto! All the stars spend time on the island.
Many West Australians (right-thinking ones, at least) believe Rotto could play a small but significant role in the Dockers' footy premiership this year.
