Under 14 Div 4 vs Mordi Brae (R6) - Down to 18 fit players with a few late ins and outs. Most worrying was that our entire ruck division from the previous week - Tommy Randall and James Hare were both out. It's questionable whether one of our late ins had a full medical clearance from his mother so for convenience we'll just call him Mr X. We were up against Mordi Brae (MB) and tried a new tactic to start the game - not trying for the first 30 seconds. Turns out this wasn't a great move as MB goaled in about 10 seconds. Fortunately the rest of the quarter went very differently than the first 30 seconds. In a blink of an eye the midfield came to… Continue Reading...
Under 14 Div 4 vs Ajax (R5) - Despite the forecasts of armageddon earlier in the week - the Div 4 U14 game was played in beautiful sunshine at the home of Ajax. Coach Griffo was busy on the magnets prior to the game as our regular full forward (Noah) and fullback (Max) were both out injured plus we were unable to borrow any Vampires players this week. At one stage during the week we were down to 14 but some reshuffling of the Div 1 Team saw us grab James Hope, Jack Tuffley and Benjo Wells - and some top ups from the U12 Div 2 team - Jacob Cassidy and Harry and Mitch Tuffley. Plus Mitch Gathercole was back after 2 operations in 3 weeks!! But… Continue Reading...
Under 14 Div 4 vs Oakleigh (R4) - Under clear blue skies and with not even a zephyr of a breeze the dad’s army we know as under 14 Division 4 assembled at the “mighty” Boss James Reserve. I have seen Boss James referred to as “mighty” several times this season in official club communique so I figure it must be a directive from the Committee. Thanks to a mix up involving short colours our team resembled a row of xmas lights with most of the team in White, some wore green and one of our borrowed Vampire players chose to wear red. I think his name may have been Henry but he was for the remainder of the day known simply as “red shorts”. When the teams… Continue Reading...
Under 14 Div 4 vs Ormond (R2) - Match Report by The Phantom: After a first round bye last week the U14 Div 4 team were making their first appearance for the season. The day didn't start well with news that James Hare was ill (no excuse for James' dad Bill thou - not turning up and writing one of his Pulitzer prize winning match reports), and Benjo Wells was a call up to the Div 1 team. On top of that, live-wire Mitch Gathercole is still sidelined for a few more weeks. Numbers were made up by some very keen U12s (Taj, Jay, Harry and Jem), as well as 2 kids from Ormond who graciously agreed to play with us. And on top of all this, Grant… Continue Reading...
