There was plenty of excitement and optimism as always leading into Round 1. We have a new look list and have aspirations of pushing for a top 4 spot at seasons end. Taking on the reigning Premiers in the first game was going to give us a solid guide on where we are at as a team and so it proved.
Even though we won the 1st and last terms on the scoreboard the Roosters dominated the middle two quarters to blow us away with their superior work rate and willingness to use the corridor.
Saturday provided us with some clear area's of improvement which we will have to rectify Tuesday night at training. Sam Chivers was tireless in defence along with Chris Howard who has continued his great form from last season, veteran Brad Green showed he still has some life left in his 38 year old legs Kicking 5 majors to be our only multiple goal scorer. Alec Willing was handy across half back and Ash Woodhead gave us plenty of energy in the ruck.

The Reserves with 10 players playing their first game for the Mighty Rainbows were very competitive but in the end DOSA's work rate and teamwork proved too strong. As the season progresses the Uni teams have always grown stronger and more competitive. Blake Waight with 5 goals, the veteran Mav moving in to an onball role and Connor Berry around the ground stood out. A highlight was Rob Harwood's long kicking from the backline.
Next week doesn't get any easier as we travel to Richmond on Thursday night to take on the Blues fresh off a big first up wins against Hutchins. Both sides need to bring a total 4 quarter effort if we are to bounce back and register our first wins for the year.

All the best to Jason Huizing who reaches his 50 game milestone this week

R1 Women :00.04 (04)Brighton 13.12 (90) 

R2 Women :06.03 (39)The Port 04.03 (27) 

Congratulations to our women with a good result to defeat Cygnet by 2 goals, after our shellacking at the hands of Brighton. Gerry was pleased at how hard you all worked, in particular late in the game when The Port were pressing for a goal. There was plenty of pressure in the last quarter, but we held on for a deserving win. The best moment was after the game when Gerry emphasised that every one had played their role and influenced our win. Itís a great feeling when you have everyone making a solid contribution. There is still work to do on our ball handling and ball movement.

We would like everyone to get to training with no games during the Easter break. Next game against Hobart 9.30 on Sat 27th against Hobart at the TCA.
