A warm autumn day greeted the unusually late start to the VAFA season for 2012. Two hundred and forty-two teams were sent out in the chase for the twenty-five premiership cups and on the surface, the battles in all the senior sections are going to be hotly disputed. As with the AFL, one should never judge the fate of a team until they have played all the others. Who knows whether your team met the premiership favourites or a team that will be staving off relegation?

The VAFA is proud to have the first application that will have the live scores immediately updated in a coordinated digital link to the timekeepers. It was great to be able to follow the scores and the time of quarter at each of our games. First up we had twenty-two of our thirty six matches on live and we are hopeful that all clubs will be on board with this simple process this week.

we are trialling a final six conducted over a three week period. It can be argued that the preliminary finals are the best games of the year and this method allows for two. In the first week we have three matches, first v sixth, second v fifth and third and fourth. Week 2 will see two preliminary finals contested between the three winners of Week 1 plus the highest home and away season will be guaranteed a place in the preliminary final. The two winners has been very successful at Premier and sub district level of cricket and we are hopeful it can work in VAFA football. It all goes on again this week and remember to download the app and keep abreast of all the action from the thirty-six senior matches.

PROMISES, PROMISES Opening Day promises so much to so many that it cannot possibly deliver it all. It always brings joy and disappointment, but this year provided plenty of heartache and April seems too early for that. The round gave us three games decided by less than a kick, a blowout and a tension packed afternoon under the spires that was not so much a gripping contest but a series of strange momentum switches that saw each team assume at different times play the roles of both master and slave. It began in high tension following a curtainraiser decided by just a point. For the first fifteen minutes, the weather was warm and the footy was hot. Then Collegians edged, then galloped away with little resistance from Uni Blues. But for some wayward kicking, the Lions might have already won it half way through the second term when Nick Sautner misjudged the acoustics as well as the goalposts. The arbiter thumbed him. The game turned immediately. The Varsity jumped back into it in spirited fashion, hauled in the reigning but becalmed premier and took the lead early in the third term. It then skipped away to a lead approaching five goals and the Purple coaching crew was wondering when the resistance would emerge. Late in the third, Jack Watts was thumbed, capping an unhappy day for the Woodrow Medallist. He seemed to me to be trying too hard to deliver singlehandedly the victory for his brother, who was debuting as coach against the club for which he played. That, as they say, was that. Collegians booted seven goals to none in the final term to grab the points. Blues went to the sheds disappointed, but they have uncovered some good ones, especially the master midfielder Peter Summers. 2

The pre-season skinny on the Brindisians was that their ballroom days were over. Write them off at your peril. Mick Dwyer’s team showed typical Tigerishness and came home hard when most needed. Old Carey had a chance late to restore the lead it had held most of the afternoon, but Julian Rowe slammed the Sherrin into the woodwork and the Panthers went home empty. It’s a tough place to win, particularly when the wind blows. If the Tiges can’t kick straight, it’s no wonder visiting teams can’t either. Featuring strongly for the home team were ruckster Dan Sceney and Mark Geschke, while the fraternal centurions Al Parton and Lachlan McQueenMiscamble did their best for the visitors. Xavs atoned for their defeat at Marles in R2 last season with a twelve goal victory. Only woeful final quarter goalkicking marred their performance. Pat Ambrose booted three while fellow debutant Tom Carey impressed in defence. Old Trinity has a reputation for fast starts, but didn’t have this one in the season plan. Rob Humann picked up where he left off last year and Luke Pacconi gave his all in this unwelcome drubbing. Caulfield Grammarians hoisted the flag but soon slipped behind St Bernard’s, the team it beat in the 2011 Premier B grand final. It booted seven in the last term but couldn’t get the four points. For the victors, Jake Bevanda impressed, while fans of the Snow Dogs will have been happy to see Tait Wilkinson and Tom Overman back in the colours. Tom O’Sullivan was a winner for the Fieldsmen and new boy Matt Kremmer booted three. Had he made it four with less than a minute remaining, the Fieldsman would have won.

and nick Jamieson had a chance to win it for them after the siren. No good: De La wins! While the Cards didn’t collect the points, they won a few new fans with their perseverance. DLS won because of Nick Roberts, who booted four in a display that indicated he is back to his best. He was well assisted by the high-flying Frankie Pickett. Mark Passador’s four goals would have gladdened Scotch hearts, but it was Max van den Broek who really stole the show with five goals in a BOG effort.

home, this time against Old Carey. I’m leaning to the home team, but it will be close. Collegians raise their flag but then must contend with De La, which seems to relish wearing the clash strip on the Trott. I’m with the visitors here. The Snow Dogs will be waiting for Old Trinity and on last week’s form, should be 2-0 tonight. Old Xaverians meet Blues at Toorak Park. While the Varsity has recruited well, it will need to be in top form (and without the long lapses it suffered last week) to have a chance. Red and Blacks here.

LIVE SCORES LEAVE ME FOR DEAD I’m not sure about the wonderful world of social media with its instant-click-tweets, clever little memes and totally suss wiki pages. Spelling and general accuracy are often casualties. Besides, sports reporting in Melbourne has traditionally been fairly speedy and reliable anyway. Stylish too. Remember the trademark pink substrate of the Sporting Globe? Saturday night’s edition had all the day’s VFL, metro and country footy scores, golf, bowls and a dozen other sports featuring lovely crimson-hued photos. The paper came out about 7pm; more comprehensive than the afternoon Herald it had the complete race results and umpire’s votes from ‘round the grounds. So it was possible for a bloke who’d put in a blinder to have a hot shower and a few sherbets in the clubrooms, pick up a copy of the Globe and some Chinese on the way home and read all about himself as he sat down to a steaming saucepan of Chicken Chow Mein. Yes, the VAFA Live Scores App is brilliant, but can you smell it, frame it, or chuck it in the bin in disgust? And how on earth do you wrap tomorrow’s fish ‘n chips in it? For more info go to: http://m.vafa.livescores.redtxt.com.au The friendly folk at Pine Lodge put a positive spin on the Hoers dismal round one performance against Beaumaris (smashed by 127 points at home) by invoking St Bernard’s miraculous 2011 turnaround after a similarly woeful season debut. Hayden Heta and Nick Gieschen were welcome returns, but fitness and forward options were otherwise sporadic. The Sharks on the other hand looked well-drilled and unified, albeit hard to judge just how good they are given the lop-sided opposition. Best was Callan Buckley hard at the ball all day, De Fontenay on the wing and Gowers bagged six to shoot to the Sharpshooter lead. In stark contrast, the battle at Soldier’s Reserve between Werribee and St Kevin’s was pressure packed, end-to-end footy. The Tiger sweepers from half back combined well with their on-ballers in furious forward waves, finding Brent Morrow (5) more often than not. New Skobber coach Harford 4

administered some home truths at half time, McPherson and Brick lifting in response. The game see-sawed, the ‘Bees looked home late in the final term, but St Kevin’s big man Anthony ‘Plugger’ Lynch had other ideas, kicking true from 50m to seal a three point victory just before the bell. Wow, pencil in the return game. Fellow-relegatees Old Melburnians and Old Haileybury met at the Junction Oval, jostling for a positive psychological start to the year. OMs got a two-goal jump amid a slight breeze, but the Bloods shook off their malaise easier than a Selwood shrugs a tackle, reeling in the scoreline to trail by five points at the half. OMs broke clear in the third kicking six goals to three, telling in the end as they snared an eight point victory for new coach Nathan Brown. Ex-captain James Beaumont’s decision to focus on his football paid off with a best-on performance, while Haileyburian debutant Josh Alkemade showed impressive poise at full back. AJAX unfurled their two Premiership flags before taking on Old Brighton in another tight tussle. The Jackas looked faster and cleaner in their disposal, Routman scintillating in his 100th game while the ‘Tonners at times fumbled and squandered opportunities. They regrouped however, forcing the Jackas wide and counter-attacking via Austin and Riley. A heart-stopping, lead-changing final term featured dashing Jacka defender Nick Marks breaking Old Brighton’s grip, AJAX nailing the sealer in the final minute to salute by eight points. Lew and Fayman kicked five apiece, as did Jordan Portelli who made an exciting return to the ‘Tonner’s lineup.

Oakleigh and Uni Blacks took part in a moving ANZAC tribute prior to their Sunday fixture at Warrawee Park, a tough and physical dual appropriate to the occasion. The hard-bodied Krushers came out strong in the first quarter, big man Stephen Ott was impressive in the ruck and rotated forward, while Mick Harold snapped an early pair as heavy clouds loomed in the distance. Blacks revealed a much more competitive edge in the second term led by Dan Costello and Tooradin recruit Adam Cook (4) taking a ten point buffer into the sheds. Oakleigh were committed but unable to regain their early spark, Uni pulled away to win by 5 goals as a freak downpour took much of the sting out of the game.

Uni Blacks, however coltish, could also struggle at home against Old Melburnians while AJAX continues its storming form with an away victory over the Bloods.

RUPO KICKS THE YEAR OFF IN STYLE In a predicted year of transition for Rupo, there was a question mark over what would be reasonable expectations for 2012. And after a twenty-goal win to kick off the season in front of its home crowd, chances are there would be a bit of optimism out Sunbury way ahead of Round 2. It was an emphatic performance out at Salesian, with Rupo gaining control of the game early and the margin being pushed out past eleven goals by half time. Leigh Brennan had a dream start to the year in front of the sticks, bagging ten majors to lead an otherwise even spread of twelve goalkickers. Jordan Gay and Matthew Quigley were also lively in the demolition. Jackson Ward and Leigh Fletcher never gave up for the Rovers, who had half their side making their senior debut for Hampton and lost a couple of players during the game to injury.

patch. O’Reilly and Vansittart were brilliant and Luke Ablett received a big tick for his first up performance.

The 2011 finals rematch out at Central Reserve looked like being one of the games of the round and it certainly was a tough contest, with the visitors, after a rejig of their forward line, skipping away in the second term and withstanding a couple of Nodder rallies in the second half to run out winners by 23 points. Simon Bennett and Warren Carlyle were great focal points for the Wellers, with some timely contested grabs and conversions halting potential Nodder comebacks. Mazenod’s Chamath Jayaweera, contributed five goals and was a standout for the home side.

While Graham Arnold can be satisfied with a season that yields a top finish on the ladder, out at Banyule the Bears certainly had some unfinished business from the disappointment of the 2011 finals series. Banyule opened its 2012 campaign at Brockwell Oval and managed to get an early lead, but Monash gained the ascendancy, with four straight goals to finish the first quarter. It didn’t take long for the Bears to find their touch though, piling on six goals to one in the second quarter and then seven to two after the main change. The pressure was immense on the Blues’ defenders, with Banyule pumping the ball inside 50 68 times for the game and Sam Baring stood up admirably for Monash. It was Adam Barclay with six goals and Abe Williams was everywhere

The Vultures unfurled their flag at Gerry Green and ensured the celebrations continued into Saturday evening, with a five point win over the highly fancied Fitzroy. In a tight contest, the Vultures managed to get a valuable early-season win, with Sam Kelleher and David Robbins leading the way. The Roys lost no supporters from their gallant performance and will be eagerly awaiting the rematch on their home 6

There’s plenty of history involved whenever PEGS and Marcellin lock horns. The AGS rivals and 2008 B Section grand final combatants did battle again at the College and the first stanza was not one for the archives, with a combined 1.5 kicked. The game opened up a bit after that and while the Eagles ultimately had a comfortable victory, PEGS will be ruing their missed chances, with a late surge in the last quarter producing 3.8, to make it 5.17 for the day, against Marcellin’s 10.11. Steve McPherson would be pleased with the Bortolottos, while Trent Cummings would be similarly encouraged by the early season form of Cam Livori and Mark Wilson.

for the Bears. Joe Cosgriff had a great game in the ruck for Monash, combining well with Tim McKenzie. This week we see Monash Blues hosting Hampton Rovers in a clash between two sides who will be hoping to bounce back. The Blues were still in last week’s game up to halftime and at home, I’ll be backing them to square their ledger for 2012.

be hoping they’ve recalibrated their kicking radar. The Bears were impressive in their Round 1 win, but I think PEGS might get over them here. Rupo is at Salesian against Mazenod and chances are they won’t have things quite as easy in Round 2. Nevertheless, it’s tough to go against a team with a percentage over 300, so I’ll stick with Rupertswood. Fitzroy is back at Brunswick Street against the Eagles. Seeing the Roys go 0-2 to start the season would be a surprise and I think they’ll win an epic encounter.

THIRDS From one, to two and now three sections of Third XVIII football in three years and more graduates of the U19 program have reason to stay with their VAFA clubs and push for senior selection. It’s not always easy to get that third team together, but once on the park, the extra numbers create pressure on the Resssies and Seniors and give clubs another opportunity to unearth some diamonds. In the past two seasons, several players have begun the year in the 3s and been in the 1s by season’s end. So to last week’s highlights… a very close one between Caulfield and the Bernies, De La slashed the Scotchies, Xavs torched the Trins, while Collegians and Blues played out an interesting duel. In PB 3, the Tonners whacked AJAX, Northern Blues were too strong for the Krushers, and St Kevin’s binned OMs with the Marchesanis sharing 9 goals. In PC3, the Nodders belted the Friars, the Wellers monstered Banyule, Fitzroy went gigantic on Mentonians, booting 200, while Kevs (2) beat Marcellin.

DIVISION 1

Darren Dawson

SPANKINGS GALORE The new season was ushered in by some glorious autumnal football weather. Under clear skies, spectators across Division 1 were, in the main, treated to some good old-fashioned thrashings. The skinniest winning margin was a not-so-lean 22 points, and even that should have been much larger if not for some wastefulness in front of goal. Glen Eira will be looking to turn their form around quick-smart or a return to Division 2 will be a formality. The Saints were completely outplayed by an Ormond outfit which put some indifferent practice match form behind them. Stalwart Shane Metz provided the Monders with the target they needed, slotting back into the forward line like he had never been away to boot 12 majors. Percentage may play a part come the pointy end, so whilst early wins are important, big early wins are like gold also. The second-biggest spanking of the day was handed out by the Pirates, who look determined not to repeat last year’s mistakes, when it was their ordinary early season form which ultimately cost them a finals berth. Led by the seemingly ageless Shaun Payze (5 goals), with support from James Coughlin (4 goals) and Will Sansom, Peninsula showed no mercy on a St. John’s team whose initiation into the higher grade could not have been more harsh. Best for JOC’s were Ryan Thomas and Glenn Costas. The closest match of the day was between North Old Boys-St Patrick’s and Old Geelong at Gillon Oval, but this was due in part to the profligacy of the NOBs forwards; their 3-12 first quarter set the tone for their day, allowing the Oggers to be only two points down at the main break, despite having seven fewer scoring shots! Whilst the home team recorded a comfortable victory, led by 2011 Pepper Medallist Matt Keown (6 goals), OGs’ coach Frank Dunell would have left Brunswick 10

with plenty of positives. Whitefriars, historically a much-better performed team at home, would be delighted to come away from Woodfull-Miller with a hard-earned four points. The Friars got the jump on their hosts with a 6 goal to 1 first quarter; the visitors then stretched the lead out to almost 10 goals, before some late goals before the half brought the Unicorns back into the contest. However, with newcomer Tom Pollett and winger Jarrod Scannell both on fire, and Dan Tibaldi and Luke Kaldor on top in the midfield, the early lead would prove decisive. Best for MHSOB were Will Taft and Heath Taylor, with Frank Carlucci notching up five goals. Undoubtedly the biggest upset of the first round was at the Fearon Reserve, where a new-look Old Mentonians thrashed a lacklustre Williamstown. The CYs had no answer to the run and carry of the Panthers, whose 6-goal third term sealed victory. Gareth Snow, with six goals (and probably even more behinds) was unstoppable up forward, whilst Sam Johnson and Cam Duncan were outstanding. Even to the somewhat untrained eye of your correspondent, the Panthers look a completely remodelled team, totally unrecognisable from last season. Willy coach Ian Rickman’s first foray into ammo footy left him recognising he has plenty of work to do if the Seagulls are to be a more competitive force in this division. Preview A couple of intriguing match-ups this week, with none better than the clash down at Mt Eliza where NOB-SP travel to the Pirates’ fortress. I am tipping TODAY SELECTIONS IN BOLD Glen Eira v MHSOB Old Geelong v Ormond Old Mentonians v St Johns OC Peninsula OB v NOBs/St Pats Whitefriars v Williamstown CYMS

Peninsula to be three goals too resilient in a close, hard-fought tussle. Ormond’s visit to Como Park will provide both the Monders and Old Geelong with some early indications of just how successful their respective seasons will be. For me, it’s the OGs by 7 points. Glen Eira, at home again, will be keen to atone for last week’s disappointing result. However, I expect MHSOB to bounce back from their first round defeat and to be too strong for the Saints. The Unicorns to post their first win by 25 points. A huge day is in the offing at Whitefriars, what with a triple-header and the club’s first luncheon of the season. The Friars should be far too powerful for Williamstown, who may still have memories of the shellacking they received at Donvale last season.

And speaking of luncheons, Old Mentonians will today be celebrating their big move to Kavanagh Reserve in Mordialloc with an off-field gathering attended by the AFLPA’s Matt Finnis, a past Panther player.

DIVISION 2

Rich Hummerston

Just when you thought you could put the 3B cream, Vaseline, Talcum Powder (insert preferred chaffing remedy here) away for the winter, Mother Nature puts on an Opening Day that had us reaching for the cricket whites rather than the customary footy shorts and Puma Kings. The completion of round one usually brings a sigh of relief for players, coaches and scribes alike. For the players, the completion of round usually signifies the end of the push-ups, the hill sprints and the 3 km time trials, replaced with the far more enjoyable match simulations and goal kicking drills. For the coaches, the game plans devised over the summer BBQ’s and camping trips get their first live run. And for the Scribes, the off-season, prediction plaguing rumours and innuendo make way for cold hard statistics and legitimate playing lists. While incorrect tips in round 1 are inevitable, I certainly wasn’t expecting the game at Garvey Oval to be one of them. The highly fancied Old Paradians quickly found themselves under the pump as they played host to the not-so-fancied St Mary’s , surrendering a 4-goal deficit after a quarter of play. Led by new skipper Brett Gatehouse and hard nut Sidney Jones, the Saints continued to apply crippling pressure on the inaccurate Paradians, running out eventual winners by 39 points and gifting Coach Erwin Leyden his first win from as many starts. For St Mary’s, Jack Flynn joined his skipper in the best, Joshua Lidyard and Daniel Spitty performed admirably and Tommy “Tim Tam” Clancy was dangerous on debut. In contrast to the baffling result between St Mary’s and Paradians, the Therry Penola, Emmaus St Leo’s played out in far more predictable fashion with Therry strolling away with a very comfortable 80 point win. A controlling second term led by Luke Kowalski (6 goals) and Michael Pell ensured order 12

was restored and the Division 2 faithful wouldn’t walk away from round one with zero correct tips. Jarrod Egglestone joined his talented mates in the best for the Lions while Phillip Carey and Ryan Harding gave their all for the visitors. La Trobe arguably had the worst start to a season in their long and distinguished history, managing only a solitary goal against Eltham Collegians at home. Coming off two games decided by less than a kick in 2011, perfect conditions and a large crowd, the stage was set for an almighty contest. What ensued was anything but, Eltham taking a commanding lead from the opening bounce. Sabastian Ciavola was unstoppable with his first Michelle of the season while John Galvin appeared to take his own pill onto the field. An address from South Melbourne’s number one ticket holder Bob Maguire couldn’t help the Bloods get over the line in their contest against Monash, going down to Division 2’s newest team by 54 points. After a fierce and closely fought opening half, Monash, boasting a host of recruits in the ilk of Chris Heppell and Matty Savage found their groove, piling on goal after goal, cementing their position in Division 2 in the process. Sam Sheehan and the ever-consistent, ever-great Lee Wells were sensational for the Gryphs while Viv Butler and Hugh Griggs impressed the South Melbourne faithful.

minutes, let me assure you, you weren’t alone. After a less than mediocre season last year and pitted against possibly the most dominant Div 3 side in the amateurs history, little hope was given to the Bullants on Saturday. Bulleen, (now colloquially known as the Dragon slayers) with a plethora of new recruits, and a brutal pre-season behind them, have arrived in Division 2, arrived in a big way. Leading from post to post, Paul Florance up forward headed a host of sensational performances demolishing the once dominant Four Blues by 16 goals. For Prahran, it was Jack Matherson and Adam Sleight that stood tall in very unfamiliar territory. Today I’m tipping Prahran-Assumption to bounce

DIVISION 3

Nick Wynne

EN TOUT CAS – IN ANY CASE Aquinas made their first game in Division 3 for sometime a memorable one with a 25 point victory over newcomers St. Francis Xavier. A brilliant opening half saw the Bloods run away to a 65 point lead and what an ordinary punter would have thought an unassailable lead. But in the second half the X-Men, led by Dimitri Dimakopoulos proceeded to come back like last night’s pizza and looked to cause a real upset. It was not until Paul Jess and Fossil Toomey reintroduced some sanity back into proceedings that Aquinas got back on top and won the day. Richmond made a promising start at a ground they had not visited in nearly a decade leading Elsternwick by a Major and a Lieutenant at quarter time. Seb Angus and Ben Zelencich were playing some super football allowing Richmond to move the ball with precision and purpose. Some soul searching was needed in the Wickers huddle at the first break and Alan ‘Gangsta’ Patey was apparently overheard threatening mayhem if Richmond’s lead blew out further. Luckily for Gangsta the lead was dissolved and Elsternwick were comfortable winners. Cesario’s paddock was utilised to full effect with Justin Hunter and Scott Grace kicking 14 sausage rolls between them in a stunning display. Ivanhoe crashed the Albert Park Party. Mali Jacobs was in extraordinary nick for the Hoers. He was so pleased with his first half performance that he told Coach Cole to print out an AFL Draft nomination form. Albert Park managed to steady the ship after the main break, Blizzard and Dallas able to get first use, but it wasn’t enough and Ivanhoe were first past the post. Ryan Fort was inspirational for the Hoers coming up with a Polly Farmer-esque rucking display. He had THAT many hit outs that he was literally smoking post game. UHS-VU went out hard against Hawthorn, and then brought it home to win easily. The 4th placed 16

team in 2011 look to be a slicker collective this year with an obvious injection of youth helping their improvement. The Hawks were held to just two goals in the first three quarters. An eight goal to four final stanza in favour of the Hawks added some respectability on the scoreboard. Declan Barlow and Daniel Musil set the game up early while Tom O’Halloran was excellent all day for UHS-VU. David Tremewen was best for the Hawks kicking half their goals. Premiership favourites Yarra Valley had an absolute day out on Power House’s home turf. The first quarter provided one of the few highlights for the House when Gerry ‘Piggy’ Turbridy weaved through 10 opponents to kick a magnificent goal. The fact that Piggy had used the whole season’s supply of sunscreen was most likely what made him so evasive. After that it was all the Bushrangers. Coach Drew whose team was noticeably fitter than Power House would have been proud of the way his troops ran out the game. Another promising sign for the Bushrangers was the way that first gamers Daniel Ricketts, Chris Hodgens and Todd May stepped up. Kew’s second quarter blitz set up a 66 point victory against Old Westbourne. In a tight opening the two teams fought hard for the ascendency, but none could be gained. With a two point buffer at the change of ends Ian Aitken said a few choice words and after quarter time it was all Kew. Michael Bailey was everywhere in an inspired performance while Joel Keeble was outstanding on debut.

to the drawing board as they hope to open their account against Power House this week. This Week: Both UHS-VU and Kew were super impressive in round one. UHS-VU are full of confidence after a big win last week and home turf will get them the points today. Yarra Valley is looking a delicious prospect for 2012 and whilst Ivanhoe was impressive last week I can’t go past the Bushrangers at home. Match of the round, without a shadow of a doubt. Elsternwick take on Aquinas and will have to adapt to the intensity the Bloods would have picked up from Division 2 last year to win this game. I’m tipping the Wicks to roll on in an extremely tense clash.

Bitter rivals Hawthorn and Richmond do battle at the Snake Pit, and I think Richmond will improve on last week to come away with the chocolates and the win. St. Francis Xavier takes on Albert Park in what could be a spiteful bout. Albert Park will need another great performance from their midfield to make it a contest, but X-men will have the fire power up forward to get the job done. Old Westbourne will notch up their first win for a while in front of a massive home crowd against Power House in another close encounter.

GOAL GLUT! In sensational conditions, Opening Day brought with it a mixed bag of results across the five games. Pre-season form and off-season recruiting always makes the task of telling fortunes difficult and this round was no different. The deceptively hot weather made the difference between good and bad pre season preparations even more noticeable. Of the two relegated teams, Mt Lilydale enjoyed a return to the winners list. By contrast, the heavily fancied West Brunswick suffered a shock home defeat to Eley Park, which looks like it may have the team to challenge at the pointy end of the season. Cellar dwellers from 2011 Manningham Cobras and Chadstone sadly continued last year’s form, going down comprehensively to Swinburne Uni and Box Hill North respectively. The upset of the round was in the battle of the ‘car trip’ which saw the South Mornington boys undergo a 110km drive to Point Cook and blow them out of the water in the second half to win by 15 goals. Box Hill North opened its account this season by pummelling the hapless Synners by 95 points at Elgar Park. Chadstone fans were hoping that a new campaign would bring with it new hope but it would seem that one week into the season and already their season is in tatters. Demons spearhead Dan Penny had a day out bagging ten majors, and he was fed plenty of quality delivery from star onballer Cam Liston as the Box Hill North on ball brigade ran riot. James Sutton-Sheehan was the only shining light on a dark day for Chadstone. In a hotly contested battle in balmy conditions at Mt Lilydale Mercy College, the Rams got the 18

job done in the end over the impressive North Brunswick line up. Max Hampton kicked ten goals in a best on ground performance for Mt Lilydale, which went a long way to influencing the outcome of the game. For the Bulls Pat Notaro snagged six goals whilst Dean Gee found plenty of the ball all over the ground. In a disappointing day for the Bulldogs in front of a home crowd, Point Cook was belted in the second half by South Mornington, raising large question marks over their fitness levels. The Tigers kicked fifteen goals to five in the second half with a whopping ten different goal kickers highlighting their even spread of contribution. On a dirty day for Point Cook, Tristan Furr was one of only a handful of Bulldogs to not have his colours lowered. For the victors, Michael Clark and Jesse Albrecht were the standouts. After Saturday’s stellar performance against quality opposition away from home, the Sharks have stamped themselves as genuine contenders this season. Eley Park grinded out the win after only three goals were scored in total in the first half. The football wasn’t pretty but it was a tough, ferociously contested game. Billy Wood and Matt Holmes were the stars for the home side but unfortunately for the Magpies they weren’t good enough to get West Brunswick over the line. The Eley Park Sharks appear to have improved even more on last season’s finals appearance and with strong performances from utility Tim Miller and Al Renshaw they could go all the way in 2012.

Definitely the team to watch this season. After bowing out of the finals in straight sets last season the Razorbacks have marked this season as a year of redemption. Their performance on the weekend supports this drive after a dominant ten-goal victory over the Manningham Cobras. Off-season departures have been a worry for Swinburne Uni but the massive contribution by Ben Mason’s eleven goals has their worries at ease for the meanwhile. The football seemed to follow Zac Scrase around St James’ Park as he racked up phenomenal numbers. For the Cobras, Scott McPherson’s presence up forward was encouraging as was David Gibson’s ball winning ability in the middle.

This week’s fixture sees the Demons head out to North Brunswick to try and go back to back over the Bulls. Mt Lilydale make the trek out to South Mornington in the game of the round. West Brunswick gets a chance to redeem themselves against the lacklustre Chadstone away from home. Point Cook have now got to come all the way to Manningham and respond well to their dismal round one performance. And in the other juicy encounter for round three, the Sharks host Swinburne Uni in an intriguing battle.

RESERVES

The Legends of the Late Morning returned last week and not before time. It’s great to hear that first whistle pierce the air and the chatter around the ground as all players tell themselves “here goes” and take that first step toward a premiership. I remember those days myself, though I don’t recall too many seasons ending in flags. It’s particularly tough to win one, tougher to repeat and tougher still to grab three or more in a row. And it’s tougher to do in the Ressies than it is in the seniors, because of promotion and relegation. Unless your club is in Premier or Div 4, it’s at least four new opponents every year. In fifty two seasons of Ressies, Ormond has won a few curtain-raiser cups to go with the more expensive silverware collected by the seniors. The Monders have won Reserves flags in Premier, Premier B and Premier C as well as the now defunct South East Section. Its best effort in Premier Reserve was a three-peat 84-86, won four on end in Premier B 1965-68 and in Prem C Reserve in 1998 split up Old Brighton’s four flags. A look at the lists of premiers is a veritable walk down memory lane, with quite a number of clubs amalgamating, moving or disappearing altogether. St Pat’s Mentone (now Parkdale Vultures) saluted in Div 4 Reserves in 1992. Uni High (Now UHSVU) won Div 4R in 85 and twice in the 90s. Bentleigh, Doveton, Preston Marist, St Pius and Fawkner all chaliced at one time or another: now they all gone.

wins premierships every year with its heavy and healthy branch support of VAFA clubs. So, a quick scan of Opening Day reveals some big scores and some big scorers. Who topped the lot? Rhys McConville-Brain (now there’s a great football pedigree) slotted ten for South Mornington. Jake Archdeacon had eight for Peninsula, Marc Brazzale (Ivanhoe), Chris Van Dam (SFX) and Jarrod Belsey (Therry Penola) kicked eight apiece. Tim Hunter (Kew), Mitch Sweeney (UHS-VU), Caine Hillier (Old Camberwell) and Tom Kennedy (Swinburne) were in fine form with seven each. About half the blokes who took the field on Saturday will have lowered their expectations after R1. Some will realise their team is not so great and there’ll be no flag this season without a miracle. Others will have realised that their team is great, but the time might be coming when the coach comes over to tap the shoulder suggesting it might be time to commence the victory lap. Ignore it all, boys, keep it going as long as you can because you’re retired a long time and dead even longer. Please let me know about any action, fun and photographs from around the ranks of pre-noon football. Email me on tbrain@austbulk.com.au.

Bank teams did OK in the warm-ups too. ES&A won a flag in ’65, ANZ in 69 and 74 (all E Section Ressies, 74 being my first year with ANZ and the VAFA.) while State Bank won Div 1 Res in ’77 and ’88 and won E South Ressies in 1997 in the merger with Commonwealth Bank that was known as Southbank.  Of course, the most successful bank in VAFA football is the Bendigo Community Bank, which 20

CLUB WAREHOUSE RISING STAR 2012 This week’s club Warehouse Rising Star is Jacob Williams of De La Salle. Jacob played all his junior football at Ashburton Junior FC, finishing as captain of Ashburton Colts in 2010 and playing off in the Colts Grand Final in the same year. In 2011 he followed his older brothers Sam & Luke to De La Salle and after a couple of U19 games spent the rest of the season playing for the Oakleigh Chargers TAC Cup team. He was a key member of the team that reached the grand final against Sandringham Dragons. Jake was awarded the Oakleigh Chargers best midfield award, a wonderful achievement given the strength of that team in 2011. Rather than take the traditional TAC Cup path of playing in the VFL, he returned to De La Salle this year and played his first senior game against Old Scotch in Round 1. He was adjudged best field for De La Salle a wonderful achievement for an 18-year-old debutant. Jacob hopes to establish himself as a senior player at De La this season and hopefully play alongside both his brothers in the same senior game.

* to be eligible for the club Warehouse Rising Star, a player must be born no earlier than 1991 and playing his first full season odf senior football.

VAFA BEIERSDORF TRAINER OF THE YEAR Each week the VAFA will acknowledge a trainer from a club who has worked to ensure the wellbeing of the players at their club. The award is sponsored by Beiersdorf and the weekly winners will receive $100 of personal care products. At the end of the season there will be an award for the Trainer of the Year. This week we would like to acknowledge the work done by our trainers as part of the Big V pre-season program. A big thank-you to Ian Wheeler, Kylie Da Fonte, Ben Seeley and Nikki Phillips. Nikki (pictured) from Old Paradians, was the 2011 Trainer of the Year. THE AMATEUR FOOTBALLER 2012

RETRO

Geoff Reilley

12 MONTHS AGO – 2011 Old Trinity defeated Old Xaverians in Premier A for the first time in six seasons. Led by new skipper Brendan Iezzi the run and discipline was responsible for the hard fought win, especially in the dying moments when the Xavs could have taken control. Final score 9.10 to 8.8. Best – Iezzi, Stewart, Aitken, Butler, N Hunt, J Hunt (Trinity) and Howard, Allan, Williams, Prowse, Lees, Smith (OX). The match of the day in Division 1 was between North Old Boys/St Pats and Old Mentonians down at Mentone playing fields. There was little in it all day although NOB’s held sway for the majority of the time. When Mentonians surged in the final term NOBS held firm to take the 4 points in a nail biting finish, 11.10 to 10.12. Best – Gill, Harwood (3), Porter, Cassell, Keown, Tonkin (NOBS) and Johnson, Norton, Ironmonger, Macquire, Cochrane, Snow (Mentonians). Ben Spencer was the leading senior ammo goal kicker for the round when he bagged 13 for St Francis Xavier in Division 4. 5 YEARS AGO – 2007 Old Brighton joined Old Xaverians as the only undefeated teams in A section when they won a very tight tussle against Old Scotch, the final term being so tense it resulted in an old fashioned “all in”. Matt Gadsden was best for the Tonners and Big Gerta impressive for the Cardinals. No more than a goal the difference at each change, Brighton won the contest 16.22 to 14.17. Best – Gadsden, Hendra, Perrett, Tolj, Edge, Buckley (OB) and Gertsman, Widmer, Nettleton, Routledge, Davis, Barton (OS). In B Section AJAX’s inaccuracy was costly against 22

Marcellin Old Collegians with 12.16 falling to match 14.9. Best – Symes, M Bortolotto, Carlson, Abrahams, Cullinan (5), Redmond (Marcellin) and Rapoport (5), Routman, Israelson, White, Henzel, Ritterman (AJAX). Steve McCarthy and Leah Gallagher were again reporting for Umpires’ Corner as well as controlling games as field umpires of undoubted ability and experience. 10 YEARS AGO – 2002 Brad Beitzel (pictured in umpiring days) was the A Section scribe and was also writing the popular column, For The Love Of The Game (FTLOTG). Brad correctly described Old Xaverians as the benchmark and so it seemed when they kicked 7.5 to 2.2 against St Bernards in the first quarter and maintained control of the game for the rest of the day. Final score 20.17 to 18.12. Best – Mollard (3), Orlando (5), Ruyg, Parton (5), Brushfield, Dillon (OX) and Harvey (6), Mount, L Wilkinson, Cousland, Byrne, Legudi (StB). Rob Sneddon and Albie Firley were the umpires in control. In B section, the Therry Penola versus Ormond match went down to the wire with Ormond triumphant 11.15 to 11.10. Best – Kelleher, Cramly, Wilson, Miller, James, Martinov (Ormond) and Kuret (3), Elliott, C Bannister, Appleford, Castaldi, O’Sullivan (Therry). Peter O’Donohue’s Life Membership of the VAFA was highlighted in FTLOTG. Captain of THE AMATEUR FOOTBALLER 2012


Hawthorn in the VFL from 1950 to 1952 and that club’s senior coach in 1966, Peter came across to the VAFA in 1970 to coach University Blacks. His achievements included the A Section premiership in 1974, Senior Rep coach between 77 and 79, AAFC coach in 1979 and service to Old Melburnians, Marcellin and La Trobe. Peter had also served on the VAFA’s Independent Tribunal and Permit Committee. A great man for football is Peter O’Donohue. 20 YEARS AGO – 1992 St Bernards went to the top of the A Section ladder after disposing of Ormond comfortably at Ormond. Looked good early and led until just before half time but it was St Bernard’s great work rate that allowed them to win the second half comfortably; final score 15.17 to 105. Best – Fraser, A Capes, J Gollant (5), Calthorpe, Wood, P Capes (StB) and McConvill, D McDonald, Schuhkraft (6), Orr, A Grace, Jobling (Ormond). A Section field umpires were Mark Bushfield, Russell Francis, Andrew Kilner, Steve Clinch, Richard Simon, Justin Toohey, Darren Dalgleish, Robert Bell, Steve McCarthy and Geoff Ridd. In an extraordinary turn around in B Section, Monash Blues overcame a ten goal deficit against Banyule at half time 0.8 to 10.8. The Blues kicked 13 goals to 3 in the second half winning 13.17 to 13.14. Best – Hildebrand, J Quin, Seaton, A Quin, Spencer (4), Barker (Monash) and Turnbull, Short, Broster, Pyers, Fidler (5), Witchell (Banyule). 30 YEARS AGO – 1982 Ormond proved too strong for Old Xaverians in A Section 16.24 to 11.20 in a fast and furious style of game. Best – McCooke, Ritchie, Bourke, A Mehrten, McAsey, Kitely (Ormond) and THE AMATEUR FOOTBALLER 2012

Steve Curtain (pictured), Atkinson, Thomas, Ryan, Brimacombe, Meehan. North Brunswick ran all over the top of Parkside in the last quarter in D Section 17.10 to 8.18. Best – D Demir, Spinner, D Di Marco, Campbell, Morritt, Strickland (NB) and B Clarke, Sweeney, T Gard, Allen, D Clarke, Rowe (Parkside). 40 YEARS AGO – 1972 The closest game in A Section was between Old Paradians and MHSOB. After leading at the first break, The High School boys fell behind and were fortunate that Paradians were not all that accurate in front of goal. Final scores OP 13.20 to MHSOB 11.8. Best Carroll, Kyne, Denavi, Johnson, J Tudor, Burt (OP) and De Raad, Silberberg, Ternes, Ponton, Wilson, R Wood (MHSOB). In B Section, Kew were cruising at half time but overran Tooronga Malvern in the second half to win 17.16 to 12.13. Best – Hayes, Berry, Aitken, Anderson, Mullin (3), Holzer (Kew) and Cartledge, Casey, Davie (5), Cameron, Carde, Hogan (TM). 60 YEARS AGO – 1952 Laurie Mithen (pictured) made his debut with Ormond Juniors, went on to win the A Section best and fairest the following season and then became a star centreman with the great Melbourne premierships of the 1950’s. 23

FTLOTG This week’s rising star winner Jacob Williams caps off a big week for the family. Eighteen year old Jacob debuted brilliantly in the clubs spirited win against Old Scotch. Father Dick (pictured left) took over the presidency of De La Salle this year and officiated at his first President’s lunch prior to the match. Meanwhile, brother Sam, a regular Big V underager, played for Collingwood in the VFL and was in their best. Also at Collingwood, other VAFA Development players Jack Hellier (SB/MT, second best, and Matt Boland (Parkdale Vultures) who kicked two goals. This follows up Matt’s effort of 6 the previous week against Northern Blues.

The other VAFA Development player, the 2011 Club Warehouse Rising Star Dan Garside (SBMT) debuted for Bendigo and kicked a goal.

THE AMATEUR FOOTBALLER 2012


ANZAC CEREMONIES AT OAKLEIGH The Oakleigh Krushers commenced the season at Warrawee Park with a Sunday game against University Blacks to commemorate ANZAC Day. The day commenced with a luncheon at the RSL hosted by Ann Barker, the local member for Oakleigh and the secretary of the OakleighCarnegie RSL. The guest speaker was Brigadier Keith Rossi, AM OBE RFD ED and he spoke of the history of VFL footballers who have represented our country in wars. Keith is a historian for the RSL and he passed

on his amazing knowledge of the ties between football and the World Wars where football games were played on battlefields. The lunch also celebrated the 90th anniversary of the dedication of the Oakleigh RSL building. Following the lunch, Ann led an ANZAC ceremony on the ground prior to the start of the senior’s game and after the match awarded the cup to University Blacks who were the winners on the day. Other clubs will hold Anzac ceremonies this week.

THE AMMOS AND WORLD WAR I L.A. Adamson, Amateurs’ president from 18961932, after whom the Premier cup is named, believed that sports should not be automatically stopped during war. He argued in early 1915 that “from its moral side the British love of games has provided a magnificent asset to the Empire” and that sports were both excellent preparation for greater conflict and a way of keeping physically fit. Yet Adamson was critical of the then VFL, believing that footballers receiving money would be less likely to serve their nation on the fields of THE AMATEUR FOOTBALLER 2012

battle. He argued in early 1915 that the VFL should cease competition, and offered as evidence that while the 1914 VFL premier had lost one player to war service, eighteen from the Amateur premier had enlisted. Adamson was also chairman of the Australian cricket Board of Control and let fly at the Victorian Sheffield Shield team for not enlisting in the same numbers as their New South Wales counterparts. In response, the Melbourne Cricket Club produced a list of its members who had enlisted and the 109 who had already died. Many of these would have been Amateur footballers. Dickie Adamson remains the singular most important person in the development of the VAFA and someone should make a movie of his extraordinary life. 43


FTLOTG INNER FM FOOTBALL SHOW Don’t forget the increasingly popular 96.5 Inner FM VAFA Footy show on Saturday mornings between 9:00 and 11:00am. Now in its 15th season and streaming around the world via innerfm. org.au , Ken Petrucco and his team discuss the issues and events around Ammo nation. Last Saturday, Big V star Nick Wynne (pictured with Ken and Michael Crooks) made his radio debut and offered some insightful analysis. As the hard man of microphone Ken Petrucco offered afterwards “Nick has the voice, the knowledge and the dress sense for radio”. CHAMPIONS OF THE CANTEEN One of the great traditions of VAFA football is the club canteen that provides food to hungry spectators and players and makes a few welcome dollars for the club. Many of these gourmet garages are run by hard-working volunteers who work hard to source the best available footy fare from wholesalers and bring it to you at the best price. This week, FTLOTG focuses on Box Hill North, where Jane runs the show at that land of hope and glory, Elgar Park. In sunny weather, Jane says that her ham and salad rolls are very popular, while the colder weather means more of her delicious roast beef rolls will be sold. 44

Good hot dogs, hot fresh pies and excellent pasties are on sale too. Send your nominations and pictures for Champions of the Canteen to Olivia@vafa. com.au THE AMATEUR FOOTBALLER 2012


St.Bernards’ favourite son Luke O’Sullivan captained the U19’s before his senior debut 1999. He was CHF in the 2002 A Grade Premiership side and played in the 2003 and 2004 Grand Finals.

North Brunswick’s Trevor Ackland, a two time Best and Fairest winner, and an in and under player is never afraid to go into packs to try and extract the ball. A current committeeman and leader his passion for the game and the club is fantastic.

St Kevin’s Patrick Aughton started his career ten years ago and has spent the majority of his career playing off the half back flank. Patrick’s attack on the footy and competitive spirit is a hallmark of his game and has outlasted many, a tribute to his commitment and passion for the club. Currently Patrick plays a vital role in the senior side as a forward and will be looking to build on his goal tally.

Luke has been a Vice Captain and Runner-Up Senior Best and Fairest on two occasions. A very popular clubman, Luke loves the social side of the footy club and always leads the charge to the bar after a win at ‘the Snakepit’.

Old Geelong’s Hayden “Beautiful Downtown” Burbank will reach the 100 game milestone this weekend. Hayden joined the Club in 1992 and marks this milestone at the ripe old age of 40!

UNDER 19 Week One of Under 19 Premier re-established some widely held views. De La Salle and Old Xaverians are going to be good. “What else is new?” I hear you ask. Beauy might be around the mark too. It led all the way against Uni Blacks for a handy win to get the season started. McDonagh booted five and was high in their best, while Sharp was a shooter for the Varsity Noir, slotting five. Bernies went big on the Royboys. Wall kicked eight in a best on ground performance, enough to win it off his own boot. The Lions will improve on this effort. St Bede’s/Mentone Tigers ran away from Old Melburnians in the last term, exhibiting greater fitness, finesse and style. Cross kicked four for the Brindisians, while Spargo got four for the Dark Blues. De La was comprehensive and clinical in its destruction of Old Scotch. It just kept on moving away like a finely tuned vehicle moving into its work. Too many grand players to individualise for the Bellers, but Watts was good for the Cardinals. Xavs pumped Uni Blues, with Berengo and Lachal kicking five apiece. A nine goal second term opened the floodgates. Blues came hard in the last, but the game was gone. Section 2 The big winners of the Section were Old Brighton, who smacked St Kevin’s. Graham got four for the Tonners, while Barrie did likewise for SKOB. Haileybury moved away from Werribee Districts after an even first half. Mitchell and last year’s 48

vote magnet Pinot got three apiece in the solid first outing. Trinity threatened Caulfield Grammarians, but couldn’t get them. Trailing by over three goals at the half and six at the long break, it was a mighty effort for the Greens to come back. Not mighty enough, as the coach will no doubt tell his charges. Stacker and Hagreaves were great in Green, while the Fieldsmen were helped by Vivian and three slots from Small. Carey and Marcellin went at it all day and io the end, the Panthers got home by four points. Evans kicked four in the Carey win, while Millsom steered through a quartet for the Eagles. U19 Section 3 Collegians tripped up PEGS with Goodman and Hibbins (a familiar Lions name) managing four each. Northern Blues beat Ormond in a one-sided affair with Powell booting five for the victors . The Olsons battled hard for the Monders to little avail. Proska booted eight and Howells five as the Wellers ran away from St Bernard’s after a tight first quarter. Mazenod atoned for last year’s GF defeat at the hands of Old Xavs when it beat the Red and Blacks. Harry Healey booted nine in a losing effort. U19 North Old Geelong beat Ivanhoe in a low scoring affair it should have lost. The Hoers kicked 2.8 in the final stanza, which cost it dearly. De Crespigny was a champion for the OGs while Stevie Nix THE AMATEUR FOOTBALLER 2012


was effective for the vanquished.

U19 South

Therry won a squeaker over La Trobe with Calfiore, Egglestone and Gumley doing well for the Penolans. The Trobers led for much of the game, but didn’t get the points.

Beauy was too good for its neighbour Hampton Rovers in an interesting affair. Ballard shone for the Sharks, while DeLisle was excellent for Rovers.

It rained goals for Willy CYs as the Westerners pumped AJAX. Dimitriou slotted seven and had plenty of mates in a big first up effort. The Jackers wee slow to begin, but plugged away and became more competitive as the day progressed. Melbourne High booted 200 in destroying Emmaus St Leo’s. Thrre Unicorns – Melilli, Dimitropoulos and Shearer – all kicked five in the rout.

De La Salle clipped Peninsula with McCarthy getting four and Harvey best on ground. Pomeroy and Rothery were excellent players for the Pirates, who tried hard but were outclassed. St Mary’s/Salesian is a happy place to be right now and its win over St Bede’s/ Mentone Tigers underlines it.. Carolan kicked four, while his team managed 14.26. O’Connor got five for the Tiges.

UMPIRES

Steve McCarthy & Cam Davidson

WELCOME BACK! Milestone We start with a big milestone this week. Former boundary umpire and current field umpire Brendan Corcoran reaches game 350 this weekend. Brendan has had a pretty successful career on the boundary but has really enjoyed his move to the centre circle in the last twelve months. He’s umpired quite a few grand finals and representative games but lists his highlights as the 2003 A Section Grand Final, the 1999 B Section Grand Final, and of course the “Game of the Century” 2006 C Section grand Final. Brendan has also had an involvement off the field and for many years served as Captain Blood for the VAFAUA encouraging and organising group visits to the Blood Bank. Well done Brendan, have a great day and hopefully there’s many more to come. Family Football As we all know the VAFA certainly promotes family aspect of the game, and here at the VAFAUA we are leading that charge. Last week in an under 19 game we saw young Bridget Morton make her debut as a boundary umpire. (Photo below) Big brother Jarryd ran the other boundary and of course eldest brother Nathan was one of the field umpires. Not forgetting dad Brett who was waving the flags in Premier B. Hopefully mum will join them soon? Made us think of all the others we have out there.

Brother and sister field umpires Damien and Alex Anthony. Sister field umpires Jayde and Tayla Daly. Brother field umpires Russell and Cam Davidson. Father and son field umpires Peter James and Julian Maccioni. Father and son Colin (goal) and Ben (field) McElwee. Father Byron (goal) and sons Alex and William (boundary) Sedgwick. How could we leave out the first family of VAFA football the Scullys? Father and son field umpires Sean senior and junior are out there each week and of course a couple of years ago we even had Dan in the goals and James on the boundary. Apologies if we’ve left any out. Please let us know. Well done to the VAFAUA and its members for creating such a welcoming and family friendly environment. After match Paperwork Last week was our first attempt at the new online system. A few little glitches but all in all it went pretty well. Give it a chance and we’re sure it will all start to fall into place. A big thank you to our president Luke Holmes who has spent hours and hours of his own time designing and conducting training sessions on the system.

UNDER 18 The U18 results are often a case of watch this space. Teams can vary in strength, clubs apply different selection policies and one can never quite be sure how the day will pan out – particularly for Round 1. Werribee Districts and Rupertswood battled it out all afternoon and goals were hard to come by. The Bees managed three in the final term and that was enough (just) to win by the narrowest. St Bernard’s did it in style against Williamstown CYMS, which did not draw twin calicos until the final stanza. Russell kicked six for the Snow Dogs, who barked loudly with fourteen second half goals. What is going on at St Mary’s Salesian? What a week it had and the U18 team joined in the fun with a 114 point munching of UHSVU/Flemington. Most of the damage was done early, with the Saints going to half-time leading by 84. In the second half, the Combine provided a better contest, but could not prevent further seepage. This week, Oakleigh meets Rupertswood. On exposed form, I’d take the ‘woods, but who knows. The Combine hosts St Bernard’s and the Snow dogs make make short work of a short trip. The Bees host St Mary’s Salesian and I’m picking the visitors to continue the club’s grand start to the season.

VARIED FORTUNES ON OPENING DAY Section 1.

Preview of Round 2

Near neighbours Therry Penola and North Old Boys/ St Patrick’s met at the Fawkner Reserve in what became a one sided affair as the visitors from Brunswick ran out eighty three point winners. Two of the 2011 finalists in Old Melburnians and Old Xaverians played an evenly contested game at Albert Park. The home side led early but a third quarter lapse saw the Xaverians wrest the initiative and build a lead which they held until the final siren. Victory thus came to the “Crocodiles” by ten points. The much vaunted Prahran/ Assumption started with a big win over Old Ivanhoe, who finished ten goals in arrears. This victory in some ways compensated for the Four Blues’ Division 2 losses. The closest game of the day was that at Monash where the Blues ran reigning premiers De La Salle to four points in a nail-biting finish. Williamstown CYMS proved too good for Fitzroy and won by twenty two points. St Bernard’s overpowered an inaccurate Ivanhoe to win by seventy points.

Section 1

Section 2 Therry Penola opened with a resounding win over UHSVU The ex students, who managed just one goal lost by one hundred and nine points. Likely finalists, Hawthorn commenced their sophomore season with a seventy one point win over Old Geelong. Kew, won their comeback game against Richmond Central “Snakes” by twenty four points. Newcomers, Eley Park proved no match for the returning Bulleen Templestowe which won by one hundred and fifteen points. In the afternoon match, Old Paradians went down by fifty four points at Bartlett Reserve, to Richmond Central “Cardinals”. 60

The clash of the Round will be that between last season’s Grand Finalists at Darling Park. De La Salle will unfurl their flag while the Old Xaverians watch and contemplate what might have been. A close encounter should ensue before I believe the Xaverians will again emerge with a narrow victory. It is hard to select the winner of the Ivanhoe and Fitzroy match as both teams lost last week. Traditionally Ivanhoe Park has proven to be a losing venue for visitors across the eight Sections in which Ivanhoe has competed. For no other reason than history, I select Ivanhoe. Two R1 winners North Old Boys/ St Patrick’s and St Bernard’s meet on the Gillon Oval. Home ground advantage I believe will enable a narrow Combine victory. Monash Blues visit Old Ivanhoe for another match between two Round 1 losers. I lean to Monash as their form last week was better than that of Old Ivanhoe. Two of the 2011 finalists meet in Albert Park when Prahran/ Assumption visit Old Melburnians.

last week; Old Melburnians did show a lot of skill in their display against Old Xaverians and for this reason they are my selection. Williamsown CYMS should win again as their form last week was far better than that displayed by today’s opponents, Therry Penola.

season. Out east, Hawthorn should record a big win over Eley Park. I suspect Kew will play close to its Old Geelong opponents and that its strength will see the home side triumph. In the early match, I select Old Paradians to defeat UHSVU., which again has experienced difficulty scoring goals. At home, I favour Therry Penola to defeat Richmond Central Cardinals because the Fawkner Oval has presented great difficulty to visitors over many seasons.
