Again, we had an undermanned team for our last home game against the undefeated Griffith outfit. While we played some good footy, and were only a goal or so down at the last change, we ran out of legs. Bails’ good form continued, and was our best to take home the Mug. Zac Jones also continues to play well, and got himself the Hog’s Breath award, while Chuck Chambers got the Wagga Meat Supply Voucher.
Once again, we were undermanned. We had 14 starters, and the coach very nearly put his old Adidas screw-ins on. Thank God he didn’t! We let them get a few soft goals, but after half-time we played much better footy and had a very good nine-goal win. Beaker, whilst probably not BOG, earnt himself the mug, as he gives 100% all the time. I had to send the runner out to tell him to slow down! Gus McLay bagged six “sausage rolls” and the Hog’s Breath award, while Joel Tancredi is hitting top gear at the right time of the season and took home the Wagga Meat Supply Voucher.
Once again, thanks to the under 17s. Ryan, Johnno, Gus, Elliot, Ed, Will & co. have saved us all through the season.
I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all those who have helped out during the year. Thanks to Griffo (Andrew) for doing the running for the majority. Andrew does a fair bit around the place, and his work doesn’t go unnoticed. Thanks too, to, in no particular order, Ed Molloy, Dan, David G, Anna, Phab, David F, Nicole, Chris, M, Ange, Kester, Scott, James, Pete McLay, umpires, Sharon & Carmel, and anyone else I missed, thank you.
Now we move into the serious part of the season. Well done to Jared and Geoff, and Trav and Wayne, and to the netballers for getting all teams into the finals. Now, let’s work bloody hard, PAY THE PRICE, and get the job done.
