Two ex Devils Ruck/Forwards Mabior Chol (right) and Matty Eagles (left) are looking to make an impact on the AFL this year with the Richmond Tigers and the Brisbane Lions respectively.

A dream match-up in Round 4 at the Gabba might be ambitious for the two rookies, but with the JLT Community Series pre-season starting this weekend we might get to see them in action sooner rather than later.
