Was a big day for the boys coming off the bye and it was a slow start, going into the quarter time break at 1 goal a piece. We slowly got our game going but it is fair to say that it was bit of a grind. Eventually though we got the chocolates to win by 5 goals. Rhys “ The Truck “ Brown was doing it all, winning the hard ball and spreading to provide opportunities for the boys up forward. Ryan “ Shane “ Watson was pivotal on the wing and is becoming a real utility for the side. Big NATO Moon was dominating the ruck dual giving the boys first use of the footy all day. Connor “ Speedy “ Gibbons was running the wings up and back for the 4 quarters and was a solid outlet for the boys. Brad “ The Fossil “ Fawcett wound back the clock with bulk rebounding efforts and setting the boys up around the ground, he was all class. Tommy “ Pots “ Walker was a machine on the inside, reading the tap and setting the game up, he played an amazing game. Woof Woof #upthe2s
