GOALS, OHA :
BEST, OHA :
Tough day at the office against the reigning
premiers. OHA jumped us in the first 5 mins but then we settled and started to
match them in the middle. The game was pretty even in the first half and due to
their inaccurate goal kicking we were still in the game at half time. In the 3rd
we didn't take our opportunities and OHA did. In the last they kept running and
won by 51 points.This was a disappointing loss but there are lots we can learn
from the game. Troy Cunliffe was at his creative best with 6 goals, Blake Waight
chopped off a lot at half back and Simon Vandervelde fought hard in the ruck all
day. All the best next week to Blake Waight in
his 50th game. Blake, b & f winner last year ,has come a long way since he was
mascot for the 2005 reserve premiership.
University 2.1, 9.8, 11.13, 16.17 (113)

GOALS, University :
BEST, University :
After an even first quarter we broke away in the second
kicking 7 goals to 3 to lead by 28 points at half time. After an even third
quarter we followed up with a 5 goal to 2 last quarter and ran out winners by 51
After a warm up game last week Chip returned to his scintillating best in the midfield, well supported by Reuben Miller. We have unearthed an exciting prospect up forward in Ned Rumney. He continued to break the packs open, bringing ball to ground, and finished off with a well deserved 3 goals.
Down back Oli Whitley and Tim Reynolds had extremely solid first games competing strongly and not letting their opponents get the upper hand. Lets make sure we continue to get to training and have a consistent couple of games against Richmond and DOSA before the first bye.
R1 Lady Bows : Start next week
The Uni Rainbows Women kick off their season on Saturday 1st May with one of the toughest challenges in the SFLW. We travel to Huonville to take on last year's Grand Finalists, the Huonville Lions. Huonville are a tough opponent anytime, but this will be the first occasion we have played them on their home deck.The Rainbows have had a good pre-season, with practice games against The Suns, Claremont, North Hobart and St Virgils. The players have got themselves into good
shape and are excited about starting the season off after a tumultuous off season which saw much discussion about the make-up of the SFLW. We find ourselves in Division 2, which looks very evenly matched, and we can only hope that we can play to our potential and this will hopefully make us competitive.
Congrats to the Rainbows Leadership Group of Sam Rose, Sarah Ikin, Mikayla Lack, Annie Lord and Tarny Kelly. The club is fortunate to have 5 positive leaders. Good luck to all SFLW teams as they commence this weekend. Lets hope for an exciting and close competition.
