      I’ve only been able to find out about these three. I’m trying to find out who the rest are but it will probably have to wait until after the holidays.

    Not to question or doubt your information but Where did you find this information? And is it an honest source? I have heard that call backs have not yet been made yet. And do you know how these players were informed by email or phone?

      Hi A. Kelly,
      That’s a totally reasonable concern. I wouldn’t have posted this if I wasn’t extremely confident in my sources. Callbacks were definitely made and they were made by email. Sorry I can’t be more specific right now . . . like I said, we’ll have to wait until after the holidays to dig into it more.

      None, except that it seems Long Tan has not been called back. I just got back from week-long vacation but I will try to get in touch with more people and see if I can dig up any more names.

    Any word on other callbacks or updates on the trials, KM?

      None yet. I’ll try to dig up some more over the next couple of weeks but can’t promise anything.

      I spoke with a Union rep today–they’re not planning on releasing names on their own, and the media are not invited to the second round of tryouts. So . . . same as yesterday and the day before. I’ll reach out to some people and see if any more names come up.
