close loss for the Rainbow Women, this time at the hands of North Hobart. Once
again, we were prepared to match their effort and intensity, however they just
had more experience and bigger bodies when push came to shove. This was quite a
congested game, and as such we were arguably out-muscled. Our forte is run and
carry but we were denied this opportunity. I canít complain about the attitude
of the Uni players Ė very positive, determined and resilient, but you canít buy
experience and we will just have to keep working on our development to be able
to compete with these bigger, more experienced sides.
Our two Southern Rep players, Sam Rose and Ruby Campbell had excellent games, but we missed the power of Eli Fornells Vernet and Ellie Kierath. Sarah Ikin and Amy Madsen continue to provide us with a decent engine room in the middle but we struggled to convert scoring opportunities. In the last 2 weeks, we have only scored 1.11, so must do better than this to be competitive. Other players to impress against North Hobart were Hannah Steele and Mimi Refaei whilst Tessa Brinsmead and McKenzie Archer had a decent crack.
We are now at the halfway stage of the season and have 3 wins to our name. Considering our youth and inexperience, this is a good result, and this team will only get better, if we can withstand the annual mid-term break where we lose many players. All in all, the glass is half full.

Seniors - last Quarter
Seniors - last Quarter
Many familiar faces for those who have been associated with the club for some time.
14 points down at the last break and some work to do
Slippery, but still a high-standard game.
Goal to Douglas gave Uni a sniff!
Wonderful touch by Livingston brought Uni very close
Alberry was in the right position to mark and kicked truly, giving Uni the lead with only a minute to go.
Unfortunately Hutchins used the last minute to kick one of their own and reclaimed the lead.
The usual sculls - another close one!
