Two days after the Canadian Football League and the Players’ Association ratified a seven-year collective bargaining agreement, the Hamilton Tiger-Cats will play their first game of the preseason.
Hamilton hosts the Montreal Alouettes Saturday at 7 p.m. at Tim Hortons Field in a game you can listen to on 900 CHML. A half-hour after the final whistle, catch The 5th Quarter postgame show on CHML, 900chml.com and on CHML’s Facebook page.
Quarterback Dane Evans will start the Ticats’ first game since the team lost the Grey Cup on Dec. 12 at home against the defending champion Winnipeg Blue Bombers.
Hamilton is also expected to dress a number of fan favourites against Montreal, including linebacker Simoni Lawrence, the 2021 East Division Defensive Player of the Year.
