WHAT might have been will be wheeled out at Lo­gan Park this af­ter­noon.

A South­ern Pre­mier League se­lec­tion will run out to take on the Can­ter­bury Dragons side in a warm­up for the Can­ter­bury side for the na­tional league.

The south­ern side fea­tures many play­ers who per­formed well in the South­ern pre­mier league.

Cham­pion Green Is­land pro­vides the likes of Tom Mil­ton, Blake Por­te­ous and Matt Bra­zier, while there are also other top play­ers such as Tim and Ben

O’Far­rell and Adam Hew­son.

Football South made the de­ci­sion a cou­ple of months ago to not field South­ern United in the na­tional league be­cause of cost pres­sures.

Play­ers from the south­ern re­gion along with play­ers from Nel­son are able to be part of the Can­ter­bury Dragons side, although noth­ing has been con­firmed.

The na­tional league kicks off in the mid­dle of next month.

The match to­day will kick off at 4pm.
