    Today our last game of the season against Sorrento Duncraig Lions was a challange in the first half. We were made to work hard and chase with Sorrento using the ball well and having unmarked players. We fought back well and took our opportunities in front of goals. The second half the boys took the game by the scruff of the neck and dominated with good football by all the boys, also by some outstanding runs and goals by individual players. Was a good game by all and a great season.

    The game today against the Stirling Saints was the best game the boys have played all season. The oval was the biggest they played on and I thought they relished the space by using what we have been doing at training and converting it to the game, with great skills with kicking, handballing, marking, tackling and most importantly playing as a team. Today all the boys played well and did all that was asked of them during the game. They played with all their hearts and it showed in the result. Well done boys what a great game it was.

    Our third last game of the season against Carine Cats was a tough one to match up on with lots of running and tackling. For most of the first half they out played us in the middle with good passing to each other and marking, fortunately our defence stood firm and only allowed Four goals through the whole day. The boys picked up in the second half and started to win in the middle of the park and delivered to the forwards who did well all day to put points on the board. All over the park it wasn't easy for the boys but they persisted and kept working.

    The game against Kingsway today was a tough and gruelling game with slippery conditions, with lots of tackling and pressure. Our tackling was a bit off today with the opposition players slipping through tackles and getting into space, the boys found it hard to take clean possession and deliver to each other with success. When the ball was on the ground we would have numbers around the ball but waited for someone else to get in and win the football. Again the boys managed to grind it out and never give the game up, to come away with a great game.

    Today against the Kingsley Tigers was a game of good skill and errors. The ball was slippery so it didn't make it easy for either teams, but we didn't adjust and made more errors than the other team. At times during the match we dropped easy chest marks which then resulted in turnovers and our kicking was off in front of goals and to each other. Something we will have to go back and work on at training. Our pressure and tackling was good however sometimes dropped off and it gave them some easy passages of play. The boys tried their hardest as the always do and resulted in some good play and sharing the ball around. Well done boys but there is areas we have to continue to work on.

    This week the boys were tested going up again some strong big body opponents. I was impressed with the pressured applied in our back line with some courageous tackles on a much larger opponent.
    Xavier had an absolute blinder of a game, calving it up in the forward line taking strong overhead marks and converting well struck goals. Fin, Liam and Jayden were also impressive displaying some great skills to link play and contributing to the scoreboard.
    The weather made it difficult to control the ball but I still would have liked to see a better effort from our boys to be first to the ball. When we had the ball we were efficient by moving it on quickly into space or to a player on their own on a lead.
    Overall it was a great 4 quarter effort from all the boys today and they should be proud of the quality of football the produce each week.

    Today was a high pressure football game, more than any other game. For all 4 quarters every kick, handball and mark was under pressure. Not a bad game to come back to after two weeks off. There were basic skills that we did not do well at times, like kicking the ball to our team mates, marking the ball, dropping marks in crucial positions which should have been taken, running into space and marking the opposition. There were many times where they had free players. The boys played there hearts out, and with no sub's in a game like that, they did well to stay in the game. Well done boys.

    This weekend the boys were asked to focus on correct tackling techniques and completing overhead marks. This was achieved more consistently in the second half which allowed the boys to maintain majority of the possessions. All the boys played their positions well with just a few friendly reminders to return to their zone. Once again it was difficult to pick out just a handful of best on ground players as all demonstrated four quarters of quality footy. However I'd like to mention Rearhn, Callum, Riley and Xavier who showed improved core basic skills and the ability to follow coach's instructions from interval breaks.

    What a beautiful day for the great hard game of football the boys played today. It was another very intense game with lots of big pack tackling which made it hard for the boys to get the ball into space and use our running game in the first half. There were mistakes we made, as did the opposition, due to the numbers around the ball but the boys managed to keep the ball moving forward and kick some great goals and defend well. The second half of the game opened up and we then found our run, had some great kicking to each other and used the ball well. Sorrento Duncraig Hawks came at us hard but the boys did not back down and stood their ground. Well done on another great game.
    Well done!

    Today was a good test for the boys after the weekend off. We welcome back Xavier after some time off and he had a solid game.I thought all the boys had a good game and contributed at some time.
    In the first half we looked a bit behind the other team, at the ball and positions, so we did a lot of chasing. We were slow to respond and the boys worked hard and got back in the contest slowly but by half time they were even teams. In the second half the boys really excelled in passing, handballing and importantly playing as a team and they got the result and played some great football. I was proud of the boys today.
    Well done!

    Today was a slippery, physical and demanding game on the boys. It was hard to keep hold on it to pass to each other, so it made it scrappy. We had good periods running and taking on players that work out for us. Other times we look out of sorts and were doing a lot of chasing and second to the ball. In the end the boys didn't give up and worked hard to the end. Well done boys on the hard work.

    The boys played a very well fought out game in difficult conditions. There was some great passages of play when things dried up and team effort was well displayed.
    At times our backline was drawn up field which allowed the opposition forwards to kick on open goals. Fortunately our boys had leg speed to run them down and apply quality tackles.
    I believe if we are to improve our scoring opportunities, all the boys really need to practice kicking on their non-preferred foot.
    The boys were asked to play 4 quarters of hard running and second efforts which payed off. All the boys played to the best of their abilities which made it difficult to pick out individual performances.

    Today was a challenging day for the boys, high tempo game, very physical and a few bruised boys.
    The first half I thought we were second to the ball, a bit lost of what we were doing out on the ground and always playing catch up. However the boys still managed to keep in touch at half time. In the second half the boys they came back strong being first to the ball and and playing as a team, they defended well taking strong defensive marks. Particularly Sam and callum. Our wing and forwards started to work well and deliver. It was a tough game against a another good team.
    Good hussell boys. See you Wednesday night.

    Today was a good day all round, I thought the boys played great football particularly in the 2nd and 4th quarter. There were some lapses in the other quarters when Sorrento got on top, but to our boys credit they fought back and came back to get back on top. Good to see we shared the ball around using our hand balling to get out of trouble, all the boys were getting in strong with the tackling, it was a good hard game, well done boys.
    This coming training we will try to work on leading for the ball, moving in to space and presenting ourselves to be a target to pass to, also one thing to remember is to stay on our players and try to give them no room to move or make a run. See you Wednesday.

    I would like to thank everyone for a great 1st game of the season. It was good to see the new and old players coming together as a team and everyone playing with confidence. My focus was that everyone had fun and there was maximum inclusion. I believe we achieved this by the smiles on faces and sweat on brows.
    At training we need to practice not kicking around the body but to take possession and look for one of your team members and attempt to hit the target. We also need to fine tune our tackling skills to ensure we aren't giving away easy free kicks. I was happy to see that we stayed in our designated positions most of the time and weren't just flooding into the forward line or always contesting the area around the ball.
    Looking forward to our next game and covering our focus areas at training.
