It's all systems go at Investors Group Field in Winnipeg tonight as the Blue Bombers host the Toronto Argonauts in the first CFL game of the pre-season. You can watch it live on TSN and TSN GO at 8:30pm et/5:30pm pt. The game is also available on TSN Radio 1290 in Winnipeg and TSN.ca/Winnipeg at 5:30pm ct.

With the league and CFL Players' Association putting forth a tentative collective bargaining agreement over the weekend, new Bombers head coach Mike O'Shea will be focused on matters on the field - starting with all four of his import quarterbacks getting a chance to play tonight.

Max Hall came in last season as a CFL rookie and ended the season as the starter for the struggling Bombers. He was passed over for the No. 1 spot this season in favour of Drew Willy, but was the only quarterback invited to return to camp after the Bombers finished 3-15 last year.

Hall will get another good look at camp, along with Brian Brohm and Robert Marve. "I feel good, I had a whole season this time to get ready," said Hall. "I feel strong, I feel healthy, I feel like I understand what's going on in the offence. I'm excited this year."

For the Argonauts, quarterback Ricky Ray did not make the trip to Winnipeg so Trevor Harris, Mitchell Gale and rookie Casey Paschall should all get a chance to impress the coaching staff as they vie for the backup role this season.

With Chad Kackert retiring, University of Manitoba running back Anthony Coombs hopes to take advantage of familiar surroundings as he battles for a job in the backfield with second-year player Curtis Steele and five others.

"It's wide open," said Argonauts head coach Scott Milanovich last week. "Curtis has an advantage because he's been here and been in the offence but it could be any of those guys at this point."
