Round 4 Hutchins at Queenborough
Congratulations to the ladies who won their first game and the reserves who remain undefeated while the seniors suffered their first loss for the year. Nick Fenton will play his 150th game with the Rainbows this week. Trolley has been a loyal servant and selfless clubman over the years and the 150 game milestone is a reward for his persistence and dedication. He is always one of the first on the track and last off it. We hope he continues his form playing as a key back in the Seniors and we can help him celebrate in style with a win over the Blues. Congratulations Trolley.

A tough pill to swallow on Saturday for our Senior team, both teams were missing key players but that didnt take away from the contest both teams provided. Hutchins jumped away to a fast start leading by 3 goals, but we were able to grab a 5 point lead at quarter time with 3 goals in time on. Marcus Gardner was dominant in the ruck for us all game but our mids had an off day and Nichols, Lister, and Alcorso kept taking the ball away from the centre at their leisure. Our backline held strong for most of the day with Nathan Hardy keeping big Willo to 2 goals and Michael Booth repelling plenty of ball from our defensive 50. Braden Livingston finished with 3 opportunist goals to be our main contributor up forward. In the end we had our chances to win the game but couldnt finish the job and to Hutchins credit they stuck to their guns and held on for a 1 point victory and bragging rights in the first battle of the Bay. We will regroup this week at training and look to bounce back against Richmond at Home. The Blues have had their own injury worries so with us getting a few guys back in we should hopefully put up a strong showing.

Another great performance from the twos on the weekend to put us 4/0 to start
the season. The game was always going to be a physical contest and Hutchins
threw everything at us early on but after the first quarter we had a handy 2
goal lead. The last three quarters was just a hard slog as Hutchins kept putting
players behind the ball to try and stop our scoring , but it didn't work and we
recorded a good 50 point win. Better players for us were Luke Bartuloviuc and
Cappelli across half back, Midfielders Charlton , Suridge and Foster
and up forward veteran goal machine Marek 'Mav' Matuszek (4goals)
Next week is the real test and it will interested to see how our young side goes up against last years Premiers the Richmond Blues.
Women :03.08 (026) d The Port 02.05 (017)
On Saturday TUFC
Women’s team took on Port Cygnet at Kermandie and have come away with their
first win of the year!
The girls performance in the final term made it
difficult for the coaching staff to pick their best for the day as all the girls
pulled together to bring Uni successfully over the line.
This takes the girls into their away game clash against last year’s premiers Lindisfarne this Sunday. No doubt the girls as they have shown previously in their last 3 games will be looking to cause Lindisfarne a bit of a headache with their persistent and relentless team efforts.
