After an even first term Dosa blew us away in the 2nd with a 7 goal to 1 blitz, with 4 of those Goals went to B.O.G the classy Michael Fisher and Dosa went into the half time 35 points up. After a decent look at ourselves at halftime the boys came out with a much better mindset and willingness to get back to our style of football. Ethan Brock made a solid return from injury with 2 goals and plenty of possessions, Sam Chivers was again productive playing in defense with Gardner, Stevens, Howard and Higginbotham being the other better contributors on a disappointing day. The positive from the game is we know our best is good enough to compete with the top sides if we are willing to do it over 4 quarters.Next week we take on St Virgils at University in a game we hope to play a much more consistent brand of footy and get back in the winners list.


University                              0.1,  9.2,  10.8,  17.12  (114)

Going into the game against dosa our team focus was on tackling. We started the game kicking against a slight breeze and Dosa came out firing , with all the play they had ,they only could kick one goal thanks to our backline led byJimmy Omeara , Alberry, N Huizing, Mathews, Rippon, and co who were brilliant. With our tackle count only ten for the quarter , we knew we had to lift in the second quarter to stay in touch. With our pressure around the ball (20 tackles for second quarter) we started to hit the score board , with our forwards running riot. The second half was pretty much the same and in the end running out 80 pts winners. Better players Mark Alberry (4 goals 7 tackles) Zac Fidler on the wing , Foster again dominanting the ruck , Mav ( 5 goals). The good sign is we still have a lot of improvement in us and with a lot of players still to come in , it's very important we all get to training to work on a few things.


 Women :14.16 (100)New Norfolk 00.00 (000)

The Uni Women’s team won their third game for the year against a physical New Norfolk team last Friday night. Playing under lights for the first time, the Rainbows switched on early, and looked sharp and ready to play, despite New Norfolk throwing down the gauntlet. The Uni Women are made of stern stuff and stood up to this style of play and came back at the opposition with interest.

Of note, was the Uni ball movement, where training is clearly paying off and the ball is moved quickly and cleanly to a waiting forward line. The players now look out wide for a running option instead of just blazing away and turning the ball over.  The new look forward line with Georgie, Jimmy and Tarny provided reliable targets, whilst we also have dependable goal-kicking mids in Ruby and Ellie.  Co-captain Alice led the way in the ruck with Eli FV also having a blinder.

Elusive half-forward Amy popped up all over the forward 50 and became the first Uni Women to kick 5 goals in a game. Skipper Erin was instrumental in leading the defence whilst the odd couple (Mimi and Eve) made the wings their own. The improvement recently has been impressive, but there are many more challenges ahead against stronger teams, however we will continue to work hard and cause a few surprises.
Players' Player was Jemima Hutchins
