Three out of three again! And suddenly all grades have won their last two on the trot! The President’s Luncheon saw the opportunity for a great meal, company, and a chance to listen to an AFL great Ian Stewart tell us the story of his career! This weekend sees a number of our junior teams finishing up their seasons, we thank everyone involved in our juniors and congratulate them all on their seasons.

Best of luck to our three sides tomorrow as we take on the Sorell Eagles in our last home game for 2017.
A bit more on last week’s games with the Seniors really lifting their efforts protecting Luke Sullivan in the middle, and with Sam Reeves (8 goals straight), Dylan Huxley (5 goals) and Luke Sullivan (4 goals) all piling them on for the Tigers. He played well, but imagine how big the win would be if Tim Langdale kicked straight! Hobart started the last quarter just 2 points up before kicking 8.3 to 0.2 to win by a huge 51 points against a side sitting in the top five. The only sour note for the day was Corey Murphy shattering his collarbone in the last quarter, we wish him best of luck with a speedy recovery and look forward to his return in 2018!

The Reserves kicked a couple of late goals in another close win showing character, and what can we say about the Under 18s, with Will Perry’s boys steam-rolling another contender to remain undefeated.
