Jules Seater kicking his first career goal was an absolute highlight.
Darcy taking on 3 or 4 players, at a time, was worth going to the game to see. Geez I would hate to play against you Darc!
The run and run and run of Flock could not be missed. At times I thought there were 7 of him.
Watching Harry paddling the ball along the ground, gaining 25 meters each time, and the ball still not bouncing up into his hands is as frustrating for him as it is for us. Goes all day! Keep wheeling onto the right too!
Observing Angus run from wing to full back. Then sprint to the wing to offer an option then back to full back, without touching the ball is a highlight for me. It is never un-noticed mate.
I probably saw the best junior tackle on the weekend I’ve seen. One of their players picked up an off balanced Charlie and absolutely drove him into the deck! The skipper got up, shook it off (accepted a very good tackle) then proceeded to chase the ball to the next contest and hit it and anyone else in the process at pace. It cost him with a smack to the eye which resulted in no more footy for 2017. His commitment, fairness in accepting a good hit and determination could not be questioned. Absolutely worth going to see.
A front a square piece of roving by Tim Cowie caught everyone by surprise, including himself. A goal was deserved but a point was the result. He has definitely picked up this game.
Sam Chaplin continued to impress with his footy brain. Placing a kick to advantage or giving the first option is always his reaction with the team benefit first in any decision. Great to watch and again not unnoticed.
Sam S continued to make great position and provide outlets to the “fatside”. It’s unfortunate that some of our kicking skills let him down. His competitiveness still set the bar for others.
Tom Pep might not have hit the highlight real but his work along side his missing fullback is invaluable.
Tom Reynolds went everywhere on Sunday and showed that he has got a tank. He was asked to run and he did. Don’t stop Tom!
Garbs was great. Again you have lifted the bar of expectation mate and you got to it on Sunday. As a first year player your upside is exciting.
Ozzy provided more work off the ball than we give credit too. Leading and shepherding don’t ever go un-noticed however your team mates should look after you for the work you do off the ball.
Burnsie in the ruck. Ink him in for next year. This game is going to click for you Nath and I really hope I’m there to see it. Smart and determined are great qualities to have and you’ve have both.
Cooper. Lead! He did. Cooper. Run! He did. Cooper contest! He did. No more to ask mate. Well done.
Mitch just took the game on. Always in front and always about 5 minutes in front of his opponent. Other than ruck I think we would back you in any position. Very smart and very coachable.
Chaddy provided very good run on Sunday with once again a fearless attack on any ball in dispute. You can’t teach that and you have it.
Steam train. You were crucified on Sunday with a ball that refused to bounce your way. Your intensity is unquestionable and another who does more off the ball than given direct credit too. Well Done.
Hugo!! Best marking hands on a 14 year old I’ve seen. You provided a contest at every opportunity and proved once again that you have “footy smarts”. You came into the game very sore courtesy of a major spill on the skateboard and still gave a great performance. Well done.
We hope to see you on Sunday 28th at the Perkins place to enjoy what we did this season.
P.S. we did miss our anchors down back in Lucas and Ben. Every player makes a huge difference to this team and these two guys are a massive part of the whole.
