Our Under 19s team this week squares off in what shapes as a fierce Preliminary Final against the Southern Storm. This time in the contest we will throw our best 22 at them. Two weeks ago we put in a below-par performance. Unfortunately, we only had 18 players available in our qualifying final loss against them.
Last week against Sorell it was all about responding to the previous week’s performance. In what we knew would be a tough physical contest, our desire to win and get back to playing our brand of footy really shined through. Standout performances on the day were Tyler Raspin playing his best game for the year in the ruck and giving us first use out of the centre, our skipper Shaun Clark was a brick wall in the backline. Meanwhile, Angus Evans and Brock Daniels were dominant around the stoppages. Our semi-final win was a tough finals game where everyone played their role. We’ve had a long injury list so these guys that have been coming back over the last few weeks will only be better for the hit out and this week we will embrace the underdog tag and promise to throw everything at the storm in order to gain a grand final berth.
Eat ‘em alive you Tigers. Thanks to our supporters who made it to Dodges Ferry on the weekend and we encourage you to head along tomorrow to support your football club! Across the board – we’ve had a tough season as a club. We are all extremely proud of our Colts side, well done to the guys on getting this far, and we all firmly believe that you are capable of playing off in the big dance!
See you tomorrow! (Saturday 7 September 2019) – 9.30am at North Hobart Oval

The Hobart Football Club wish to advise that Life Member Brian Harvey has sadly passed away. Brian served many years as match manager, a board member and Vice President. Brian was instrumental in the Hobart/St Virgils partnership in the early 2000s. His contribution can’t be understated. Our deepest condolences to Sue, Mat, Trent and Justin.
Thanks to the various supporters, members and players who attend the service to farewell Brian.
