USING ONE’S HEAD It can take a couple of years for a tactical trend in the AFL to flow over to the VAFA. In the last ten years, we have seen the flood and the huge increase in interchanges take their place on our fields and now we have coaches keen for players to employ the press. I am not totally au fait with this ploy but I am sure it takes a lot of education, time and buy-in from players for it to work. More will talk about it than be successful with it. Other changes to the rules or interpretations have been implemented by the AFL to speed up the game, increase spectator enjoyment or enhance the safety for the players. Some of these have not been introduced by the VAFA for reason of either lack of relevance or lack of man power to police them. One rule that comes to mind is hands in the back, which is still legal in the VAFA as long as there is no push involved. In 2007, the AFL introduced a tough stance on high tackles when CEO Andrew Demetriou referred to the head as “sacrosanct”. Accordingly all football competitions around the country followed this doctrine. All of our coaches were briefed on the correct way to tackle a player when approached head on. However, it seems now that players are seeking to use this doctrine to their advantage and the effect of this could be serious injuries. This week the head high tackle has been highlighted as players are endeavouring to slip under the tackle to allow the tacklers arms to slide up around their neck or to the head. The second and more dangerous method is where players are using their heads to force front on contact

and be rewarded with a free kick. This method needs to be outlawed for the protection of the ball carrier. I asked VAFA General Manager of Umpiring Brian Goodman, to explain the interpretation given to our umpires: “The player who ducks his head in an attempt to gain a free kick will not be rewarded. The umpires are instructed that if the player contributes to the high contact then ‘play on’ will be called”. However the umpires are instructed to protect the player going for the ball and therefore their natural tendency should be to always reward that player. This grey area is causing players in the AFL to test the umpires. In the VAFA, our players are not going to risk neck injury for the sake of a free kick. Or are they? Competitiveness, will to win and natural aggression all come into a contest and players might use their heads if they believe a free kick will result. The AFL Laws are there to ensure player safety and in my opinion this law doesn’t guarantee it. If you put your head down and make contact with a stationary player, then the player should not be rewarded with a free kick. However players are then unsure as to whether they can even lay a tackle and these players sometimes get a rite of passage. Should we go so far as to say, for the protection of players, that a free kick is awarded against players who lead with their head and barge into contact? In basketball, if the blocker is stationary, the foul is called on the ball-carrier. As for the press, I am not convinced that all clubs have the fitness to ensure mastery of it. I do know that if the ball comes over the top and behind the last line, it’s time to get the skates on and run like Billy Slater.

SANTA, WEARING RED, ARRIVES EARLY. It was Christmas in May as the Red Men’s “Jingle Bells” theme song echoed around Camberwell on Saturday afternoon, signalling the end of a long stretch of Xaverian dominance over the Cards. What all this means we will not know until later, but for now Scotch can look ahead with confidence and without fear. Its victory was convincing enough. It began well, pressed hard and withstood the inevitable challenge when it did come. Mark “El Condor” Passador played his best game for the club and Shane Neaves, who duelled with Cam Purss at the stoppages, did likewise. Sam Barnett returned to top speed and the defence did a great job of shutting down the Xavs forward setup. Only Brendan Goss, who booted four, reaped reward for his efforts, while Pat Ambrose again showed some form. St Bernard’s waited until after the long break to kick its first goal, but then added another four to climb back into the contest with Old Carey. Still, their hope was short-lived, as Ben Smithwick hurt the Snow Dogs and the goals came from Damian Yze and Julian Rowe and the classy duo of James Rimington and Carl Peterson got in on the act too. Andrew Merrington was a strong target for the Bernies and Toms Caven and Overman kept the flame burning on an otherwise dirty afternoon. Nick Sautner did not produce the prodigious numbers he did last time against the Ts and Collegians had to be satisfied with a hard-fought and slightly uncomfortable win. The Ts led at the half, though one sensed that inaccurate kicking had a bit to do with that, and it was not a surprise that the reigning premier stepped up the pressure in the third stanza. While Shura Taft and Nick Reis booted three for the Lions, the tireless and ageless Andrew Ramsden responded with six, a massive effort given that the Greens managed just eight for the day. Fergus Stewart and Luke Pacconi were in fine fettle for thevanquished, while Colls had plenty from Courtney Hylton, a worthy recipient of this week’s Rising Star award. At headquarters, Uni Blues looked quite comfortable for the first half and beyond but as 2

the third quarter wound down, the Fieldsmen jumped back into the game and threatened to steal it. Sadly for them, the classy Tom O’Sullivan missed one he would regularly nail and the momentum disappeared as suddenly as it had arrived. Jack Watts was again best for Blues and he had some strong assistance from Will Cuningham and Charles Shaw, while Andrew Lowcock is still a constant threat. In the thin white hoops, Max Slonim and Dean Scheetz were solid allies for the aforementioned O’Sullivan, but the Gladiators of Glenhuntly went home still winless. The Varsity won its first points for the season and in doing so showed signs of really putting its game together. De La Salle hosted its La Sallian cousin St Bede’s/ Mentone Tigers and showed it no mercy. Once again, the Seasiders were slower to begin and by the half, the game was well and truly over, given the conditions, which were described by one observer as “appalling”. Still, the condition of the ground did not seem to worry the home team, which kept the thumb on its opponent even after the result seemed certain. Sam Williams made a welcome return for the Blue and Golds and he and Jake Gotch seemed to enjoy chewing up the kilometres. Frankie Pickett booted three, Nick Roberts was again handy and the Brindisians could not find answers up forward. THIS WEEK: De La meets Uni Blues at Waverley and the conditions will be similar to last week’s. The home team may make some forced changes but may be a bit stronger. The Varsity won well here last year but might find repeating that dose a tough ask. Old Trinity returns to Daley for its clash with Caulfield Grammarians. As it has sorted itself in the first three weeks, this becomes a must-win for TODAY SELECTIONS IN BOLD De La Salle v University Blues Old Trinity v Caulfield Grammarians St Bedes / Mentone Tigers v Collegians St Bernards v Old Scotch Old Xaverians v Old Carey

each team. The heavier it is, the better chance for the home team. What will Rambo do this week? and will the Fieldsmen get a strong return from their talls? The Brindisians will defend the fortress against Collegians, who have not won at Mentone in this current epoch. Form and cast list would both indicate that the perfect record will be broken, though I have a funny feeling about this one. St Bernard’s head back to the Snakepit hoping to catch The Cards still celebrating their R3 win. Back in the day, St Bernard’s was about the toughest place to win in all of football and the cognoscenti

are hoping for a return to those times. It’s a big game and the Cards will not tolerate dropping this one. On Sunday at headquarters, (where admission is free throughout the home-and-away season) Xavs and Carey celebrate Mothers’ Day with a matchup that both sides are desperate to win. Coming off a loss, one would expect the Red and Blacks to be very tough, particularly in the ruck. “Chopper” Handley will miss after pleading guilty before his appearance in front of the stipes and his influence will be missed on the Ponderosa. Old Carey has a lot of class, but will need its forwards to kick a score.

ONE TOUGH MUDDER This weekend we say special thanks to Mum - in particular the wonderful collective Footy Mum. She who thought the filthy, muddy loads of washing were over forever when junior footy came to an end, and she could bid farewell to freezing hours on the sidelines, clubroom clean-ups and canteen rosters. Ah, bookclub awaits, a regular manicure, perhaps a midwinter getaway to a cosy B&B. Sorry Mum! Mind you, she probably also thought her strapping young adult sons would’ve moved out by now too. There’s a footy mum in particular who embodies all manner of devotion and multitasking excellence who deserves a mention, anonymously of course. We’ll just call her Kerry. She’s a single parent, a Thursday night Nigella creating mouth-watering pasta for the lads, and variously she is game-day kiosk lady, cleaner, team manager, uniform-steward, inn-keeper, raucous joke-teller and staunch confidante of all. She talks proudly of each player not just her son, the club captain. She’s as committed to the footy club as ever, and they don’t come any tougher. Or softer. She personifies the hundreds of wonderful Footy Mums at every club, and we wish all of you a very Happy Mother’s Day. A terrific turnout of Mums and WAGs enjoyed a chicken & champagne lunch at SKOB’s Ladies Day last week; the girls overseeing their boys in another resounding win. Old Melburnians hung tough though in the bleak conditions and in fact had the better of the second term. Alex Armstrong and Lachie Bennett kicked a pair each, but an inspired third quarter proved St Kevin’s most ferocious display for the year: Karl Wissell and Glen Chivers winning the hard ball out of the middle and driving it forward for a 10 goal term and an eventual 89-point win. In the local derby against Old Brighton, Brayden Haynes’ mum cheered ‘Des’ as he ran onto Banksia Reserve in his 200th decorated game 4

with Beaumaris. A hard-bodied encounter, the Sharks displayed superior kicking skills despite the conditions, but the ‘Tonners were revved up too with the return of Leigh Hendra’s aggressive tackling. Unlucky to lose key forward Tom Mentiplay early, Old Brighton’s David Jennings (3) stepped up while Andrew Edge was superb in defence and although dominant in the final term, the ‘Tonners fell short by 34 points. Tommy Dean continues his brilliant vein of form for Beauy along with Rob Cathcart, their hard running and tackling strength super impressive. Murton and Gowers kicked a trio each; the Sharks’ many teeth pushing forward to cover Matt Petering’s absence through suspension. Old Ivanhoe came tantalisingly close to a home victory over Werribee, leading at every change until the ‘Bees smashed them with five goals in the last to win by nine points. Adam Morrow led the way for the Tigers while Andy Panayi kicked three on VFL release. The Browns found their big go-to man in Brad Thompson (2), as Delmonte (2) and Nick Gieschen did the hard yards in a desperately disappointing loss, but kudos to Werribee for a grinding, fighting win. Oakleigh also came close to a first victory as they ran neck-and-neck with Old Haileybury for three quarters, just 4 points in it at the last turn. Ioannidis (3) was a solid contributor along with Wass, but the Bloods kicked away in an eightgoal final spree, shared amongst Ridgway, Nicolopoulos (3 each) and the finesse of Brede Seccull (2) also on VFL release.

Unable to score a goal until midway through the last, AJAX suffered its worst defeat in years at the hands of Uni Blacks with only poor conversion preventing the 76 point margin blowing out further. Geoff Measey and Nick Marks battled hard in the backline but were unable to stop Justin Crameri kicking five. He was ably assisted by livewire Charlie Richardson who snapped four in a best-on performance. TODAY A couple of cracking clashes today. Old Ivanhoe host Oakleigh in a fierce battle for that coveted first win. This will go down to the wire, Krushers for mine. Old Brighton fans were encouraged by a bit more G&D last week but simply won’t have the answers to a rampant St Kevins at South Road today, while the Jackas will shake

ROVERS RETURN TO BOSS JAMES That was fun while it lasted. We’ve only got to Round 4 and no teams left in the comp on maximum points (though we’ve still got two that are undefeated). Boasting a form line that’s been tougher to read than Finnegans Wake, it looks like Premier C is going to be a great season from start to finish, unless you’re a tipster. As the ‘Keep off the grass’ signs were being taken down at Boss James Reserve, ahead of its relaunch this Saturday, the Rovers were under siege against a rampant Banyule at the Cave. The Bears defence had a clean sheet at quarter time and kept Hampton to just two goals all day. The Rovers’ skipper, Leigh Fletcher was battling manfully in the middle and Cameron Sharp made a welcome return, but Banyule just had too many winners on the day in a 119-point victory. Adam Barclay was back to his best for the Bears with six goals, while Gayfer chimed in with four and Bart Walsh continued his good early season form. Monash was at Frearson against Old Camberwell and while it was a tight battle throughout, the Ashes were unable to capitalise on their narrow halftime advantage, with the Wellers getting home by nine points. In a low scoring encounter, Old Camberwell’s third quarter yield of 3.1 to one point ultimately got them home and with two wins and a draw from three games, they are now equal top of the ladder. Greg Tolson starred for the visitors and Ben Hart put in another dominant display, while Andrew Hickey was fantastic for the Blues, yet again.

Parkdale gained the early ascendancy on the scoreboard and managed to hold Rupertswood at arm’s length all day. Liam Platt was busy for the Vultures and David Robbins and Andrew Thompson celebrated their return to the side with strong performances. John Corso and Josh Smerdon had their best games for the year for Rupo and would be looking to build on this form as their team tries to return to the winners list in Round 4. The Eagles hosted Mazenod at Bulleen and Marcellin would be very happy to take the four points, just outlasting the Nodders in a cliffhanger. The loss leaves Mazenod at 0-3, which probably isn’t an accurate representation of how competitive they’ve been so far. It was the Bortolotto show at the college, with JB and Big B putting on a clinic, combining for seven goals in a sensational display. Augustine Patti was good for the Nodders in his first game of 2012 and Tim Bourbon was a solid contributor. Fitzroy, coming off a confidence-building win against Marcellin, went to PEGS, hoping to make it two in a row. But it was the home side that would continue its winning streak, with a big final quarter sealing the deal for PEGS. David Forrest was a great focal point for the victors, finishing with five goals and Towner, Skurrie and Biggs were all firing. Josh Vansittart played another great game for the Roys, Sam Baker performed well and Michael Cussen kicked four in a losing cause. TODAY SELECTIONS IN BOLD Banyule v Fitzroy FC

Rupo put the white shorts on for the first time of the Premier C season and the long drive home from Parkdale would not have been a happy one, succumbing to the Vultures by 32 points. 6

SPORTS INJURY CASUALTY - Get back in the game


This week, the Rovers are back at their beloved home, in what will be a huge day for the club. All three sides are playing there on the day and hopefully a massive crowd will be there to see the Rovers take on the Wellers. Old Camberwell has barely put a foot wrong in 2012, but they can’t afford to underestimate Hampton, who will undoubtedly be fired up for this one. Still, Old Camberwell has been very solid so far this year and I don’t think they’ll drop this game. Mazenod is back at home this week against PEGS and the Nodders would no doubt be feeling disappointed with no premiership points to show for three games, considering they’ve been thereabouts in all three games. It’s tough to go against winning form though, so I’ll tip PEGS in a tight one.

The Vultures get their third game at home in the first month, this one against Marcellin. This should be a great game between two quality sides and I’ll tip the Vultures to win at the Nest. Fitzroy travels to Heidelberg to take on Banyule in a massive game for both clubs. While the Bears won’t be a pushover, I think Fitzroy will get their season back on track with a good win. Two sides looking to bounce back clash at Salesian, with Rupo taking on the Ashes. It’s never easy to get out of Sunbury with the four points and I think Rupo will get the points at their fortress.

DEPTH BEGINS TO TELL Third XVIII football rolled on in R3 and there are now two unbeaten teams in Premier. Collegians is basking in greater depth, which has seen their Reserves join the upper shelf too, clipped Old Trinity to stay on track. Mark “Airer” Parrent was grand in purple while Tim Quarterman was best for the Ts, who led at early before being overcome. St Bernard’s beat Old Carey convincingly, with Matt Sweeney and Chris Godfrey combining for six goals, more than enough to take care of the Panthers. Veteran Justin Evans led the Snow Dog assault, while Matt Baker was in good form for the vanquished. Xavs beat Scotch to stay on track – Paddy Purcell and Josh “Tooka” Hanger were strong for the winners, while the Cards got plenty from Tim Melville. Uni Blues beat Caulfield Grammarians, with strong performances from two PMs, Keating and Barton, while Dylan Tobias was best for the Fields. In PB3, SKOB booted 33 goals – fives to Tom Crookes, Nick Marchesani and Simon O’Connor and Matt Lucas – yes, Matt Lucas – kicked six. Jamie Doran and Josh and Jake Paola tried hard for the Krushers, but the Kevs were in dazzling form. Reigning premier Xavs beat AJAX with a great performances from Jim “Mojo Rising” Morrison and Dan “Sail On” Selir. Jon Sacks was in good touch for the Jackers. Uni Blacks beat the Tonners in a low scoring game, with Rob Moffatt’s hat-trick being decisive for the

Old Melburnians edged Northern Blues with a cast that looked like a list of Victorian Liberal leaders – Baillieu, Doyle and Thompson were all in the best. In PC3, Kevs beat Banyule,with Dan Kerr grabbing three. Fitzroy was strong over Mazenod, with Jim Harding and Max Oliver starring for the Lions and Jake Little best for the Nodders. The Wellers were too strong for Marcellin at the finish, winning after trailing most of the afternoon. Sam Ayoub booted four for the Eagles, but the combination of Josef Atkinson, Sam Flanagan and Rock Kwok got it done for the Two Blues. Ben Lane goaled three times as Old Mentonians beat an inaccurate Friars.

AND THEN THERE WAS ONE In the blink of an eye, there is but one undefeated team. The unconquered Pirates are alone at the top of the ladder after defeating the previously unbeaten Whitefriars. With the intermittent rain making for slippery conditions, it was a close low-scoring tussle at Friar Park, particularly for the first three quarters. And when the Friars booted the first two goals of the final term to draw within three points, it was well and truly “game on”. However, Peninsula seemed to have the answers all day long and they duly banged on four unanswered goals to draw away with a 34-point win. Gary Carr was a rock in defence for the Pirates, while Paul Celotti was excellent for Whitefriars. As well as savouring the hard-fought win, Peninsula president Phil Coghlan was celebrating the fact that he had six sons turn out for the Pirates last Saturday: James, Tom and Will in the ones, Luke and Eddie in the twos, and Andy in the 19’s! It was a tough game of footy at Keysborough, where the Panthers played host to the first tie of the season against Ormond. Defences ruled in the heavy conditions. It was goal-for-goal, but those goals were at an absolute premium; indicative of this was that both teams scored only a point each in the second quarter! In what could have been a fitting finale to his 150th game, a mere three seconds before the siren Ormond’s Shane Metz had a shot at goal which would have secured victory. But it narrowly missed and the match ended in a stalemate. Best for the Old Mentonians were Cam Duncan, Zach Nelson, Tim Wigney and Sam Johnson, whilst Ormond’s stand-outs were Boyd Upstill, Luke Duthie and Richard Keane. 10

After a tight first half, Glen Eira’s seven-goal third term ended St Johns’ hopes of breaking its duck. The Saints pulled away from their archrivals to record a big win, their first for 2012. Best for the Saints were Andy Spink, Justin Mills and Tom Paterson. St. John’s were in the game early, but tired badly in the second half: best for JOCs were Glenn Costas, Liam Mara and 17 year-old Josh Green. Back on the familiar surrounds of Gillon Oval, North Old Boys-St Patricks looked a completely different team against MHSOB, booting seven first-term majors to put the previous week’s horror show behind them. For NOBs, big Todd Patterson (6 goals) finally got amongst them, whilst Sam O’Connor was a deserving winner of the “Past Players Mark Sheales Award”. The Unicorns were never in it, possibly thinking too much about that night’s annual “Mr. Unicorn” festivities. It’s been some years since Old Geelong tasted success at Williamstown, but they will be more than satisfied to run out convincing 58-point winners over a CYs team who are struggling to fire a shot at present. OGs best players were Angus Macdonald and Paul Ellis whilst Willy’s better players were Daniel Calman-Orr and Benny Gray.

both entertaining and a test of just where the Oggers are at. The OGs looked much improved, but I am expecting the Friars to bounce back from the disappointment of their defeat last week and win by 14 points. Ormond should also be on the winning side of the ledger when they play host to St John’s. A win may not be too far away for the JOCs but it will not be this week; the Monders to be 30 points too good. When Williamstown and North Old Boys-St Patrick’s last met at the Fearon, the result was a draw. I reckon the Towners would settle for a measly two points at this stage of proceedings, but NOBs will not be giving any ground to their struggling opponents here, and will win by 15 points. Peninsula, who are at home only twice in the first six, are on the road again; but the

Pirates form is such that they should have little trouble dispensing of MHSOB by 40 points. Apart from their round-one shocker, Glen Eira have been competitive, but the Saints will be no match for the new-look Panthers. I’m tipping Old Mentonians by 25 points. Smokie says: Many correspondents are reporting that visiting clubs have been quite keen to partake in after-match socialising. As one who does not need an excuse for a chat by the bar after the final siren, I hope this spirit continues on throughout the season.

STEP ASIDE. IT’S OUR TURN. It was only a mere three years ago when wetday football was all but extinct. The slower, more wholesome players found the going tough, while the taller, athletic players flourished, clunking the pill at will, sending their stocks soaring akin to Microsoft shares in the 80s. Through some procrastination-spawned research, I have since learned that Australia is currently experiencing a La Nina event, which in layman’s terms, translates to a whole lot more wet weather footy. So, like me, if you have a frame that falls under the “wholesome” umbrella and you have a centre of gravity lower than a Mini Cooper, our time to prosper has arrived. For our genetically gifted 6-foot plus teammates, step aside; you’ve had your go. La Trobe University has finally freed itself of Maiden status after a strong second half to defeat a disappointing St Mary’s Salesian at home by 20 points. Boasting arguably one of the best playing surfaces in the competition, the first half was peppered with skilful passages of play and free flowing movement despite the inclement weather. Grasping a narrow first half lead, the Saints were unaccountable in the third and final terms, kicking a miserable two goals to the Trobers’ seven. Jack McMeel’s 5 goals in the wet proved instrumental for La Trobe while David West and Sid Jones performed admirably for the Saints and will enjoy the forthcoming wet weather this season. Emmaus St Leo’s remain the only side without a win in 2012 after a heartbreaking 2 point loss to the resilient Old Paradians at Bennettswood Sports Ground. Leading all day, and with a six point buffer going into the final stanza, players and fans alike started warming the vocal chords for the first belting of the song. Whispers coming out of the St Leo’s camp have it that a new recruit, upon realisation he had no idea what the song was, came to the bench to ask a club stalwart for assistance. Alas, the scrambling was in vain, a resurgent Old Paradians, trailing all day, led 12

when it mattered. The Baranello brothers were sensational for St Leo’s as was Thomas Foreman. For the victorious Paradians, it was Warren Jeffrey and Wayne Connelly who impressed. Seemingly content with their newfound underdog status, Prahran-Assumption prevented the Turtles from raising their colours for the first time this season, running out comfortable victors by 27 points. With little more than a kick separating the two sides all day, it took Adam Sleight’s size 13 Puma King and some handy work from James Musster to blow the game open in the final term. Joining his skipper in the best for the four Blues, full-back Jack Matherson kept the ever-damaging Sab Ciavola goalless. It begs the question, “beat Ciavola, beat Eltham?” Bulleen Templestowe has further cemented its position as ladder leader with a comprehensive drubbing of Monash in atrocious conditions at East Caulfield Reserve. Despite rain falling for the entirety of the match, Bulleen’s skills and tenacity never wavered, proving too much for the topheavy Gryphons. Similar to the family cat with an innocent field mouse, the Bullants toyed with their prey, before delivering inevitable death, slotting 9 unanswered goals, and creating an unassailable lead in the process, running out eventual victors by 73 points. Justin Khouri, colloquially known henceforth as “The Titanic” was too strong for the Monash defenders, slotting 4 and Anthony Lucisano appeared to have his own footy. For Monash, it was Clint “The Butcher” Mackie and the feisty Adrian Flowerday that were marginally brighter lights than the rest.

Closely fought up until the last 10 mins of the match, South Melbourne lead by Josh Lambert and Elliot Costello managed to stay within arm’s length for the majority of the match. For the Lions, it was the Costello brothers and Eugene Benson that ensured Therry would stay in the top four. Similar to every week, and probably more as a guise to shelter my own self-esteem, I tip with hesitation again. In the game of the round, Eltham hosts ladder leaders Bulleen. While the Bullants

Monash should re-join the winning fold this week against St Mary’s, if it doesn’t, I shudder to think of the consequences. Prahran-Assumption should account for Therry easily while La Trobe will firmly stick the Cellar Dweller label across St Leo’s forehead. Rounding out the week, South Melbourne will have a resounding win at home against Old Paradians.

GOOD, BAD, NOT EVIL Oh Katrina! Why you gotta be mean? Hurricane Katrina that is, she was definitely the bad this weekend. She said ‘let it rain’ on Tuesday and four days later it hadn’t let up, producing tough playing conditions come 2pm Saturday. Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the greatest of them all. Well at this point it’s Yarra Valley, which left UHS-VU with cold hands after they had very little action. In fact they were not even in the same suburb as the Bushrangers. The top team made light work of its opposition at home to make it a perfect start to the season. Sam Savage and James Amos starred in the difficult conditions. St Francis Xavier gave Hawthorn an absolute strafing on home soil. The X-men certainly lived out their mantra of the day which was to start well. Not only did they start well, but they dominated the middle and then came home with a wet sail. A disappointing day for the Hawks was compounded by the fact that they now sit at the bottom of the table. Hawthorn, surely the bad. The good was the game between Albert Park and Old Westbourne. In an old fashioned slugfest at the Peanut Farm, there was hardly a kick in it all day until Albert Park drew away towards the end. Westbourne were first to adjust to the stormy conditions and started accordingly, kicking away to a slight lead at quarter time. However it didn’t take long for Albert Park to get into the swing of things and when they did they ran right over the top of the boys from the West and took the four points. In the clash between Ivanhoe and Kew it was all 16

about Duck Wood who played his 200th game for the Hoers. Despite an early cock up (the banner being destroyed before the Duck ran through it) the day could not have gone better for Ivanhoe. They led at every change and claimed an easy victory. Ash Close was in the minority in terms of mastering the conditions and finished with six goals and six equally dramatic celebrations. In a huge upset Richmond Central defeated Aquinas by plenty. While the Snakes had to make six changes from their team that defeated Hawthorn last week, it didn’t prevent them coming out with a fierce attack on the ball. Aquinas didn’t fine-tune their game plan to suit the surroundings and were unable to attack with any real swagger opposed to Richmond who went long at all costs hitting up their tall forwards. And finally the ‘not evil’ or is it just evil? A draw! Elsternwick and Power House could not be split in the storm. In agonising scenes, both teams scrambled to get that final point that would divide the two, but it wasn’t to be and Division Three had its first tie of the year. The House staged a remarkable fight back in the final term to almost steal a win, but the Wicks who were without stars Lachie Bedingfield and Brian Mahoney managed to hang on.

This week: UHS-VU to bounce back after they were a ghost of their best last week. Yarra Valley will be like bad kids, showing no respect for the Wicks or authority. I feel St Francis Xavier will make it a repeat of the Div 4 grand final last year and defeat the Stationmasters. Ivanhoe should account for the Hawks who won’t be able to get their heads off the block. Kew will be too good for the House at Victory Park and Aquinas will bounce back from a shock loss to defeat Old Westbourne.

WET CAN’T DAMPEN TIGES For the first time this season the weather came into play in a big way. Melbourne’s unpredictable weather on Saturday saw most teams wake up to bright blue, clear skies, which would have brought with it much optimism for the two hours that count on any given Saturday in winter. However, by 2pm the weather had taken a major turn for the worse and all grounds across Melbourne were sopping wet and still copping a hammering of rain. The forecast earlier in the week predicted wet weather football so coaches would have selected their teams accordingly. Yet, there would have been some coaching panels wondering if they’d made the right decision earlier in the morning. The five games on the weekend may have been played in less than ideal conditions, but the teams that will feature prominently at the business end of the season stamped their authority on the competition. Consistency is critical in this competition, and it is was no more evident than on the weekend when runaway leaders South Mornington and Swinburne Uni continued their convincing start to the season with comprehensive victories. At the other end of the spectrum, whilst they are improving by the week, Manningham and Chadstone continue to carry the tail. South Mornington has started the season like a steam train. Ninety point winners in round one, followed by ninety-five point victors in round two, the Tigers have stamped themselves as the team to beat this season. Box Hill North made the trip down the Peninsula on the weekend for the toughest trip in the division. And Despite holding South Mornington to six first quarter goals with the wind, the Demons were never in the ball game and the floodgates opened. By the end, the Tigers had run out 101-point winners, finally breaking the ton barrier that had narrowly eluded them in recent weeks. Jesse Albrecht continued his 18

devastating start top the season booting 8 majors to take his tally to 22 for the season. West Brunswick hosted Mt Lilydale in the battle of the two relegated teams from last season. At the beginning of the season the collective feeling was that these teams could be a cut above the rest of Division Four. However, the first two rounds have told us that they will be nothing but one of the many contenders in this competition. Coming off last weeks hiding, Mt Lilydale lead this clash from start to finish sending a statement. It appeared as if the Magpies didn’t even want to be out there at times. Several undisciplined off-the-ball incidents could come under scrutiny with the Match Review Panel this week. Either way I’m sure that there will be some changes down Brunswick way. Jesse Pulkka and Daniel Cerra were instrumental for the Rams in the win. A team with a win-loss record over the past couple of years like Chadstone may be forgiven for having the weekend off rather than making the big trip down to Point Cook on the weekend. However, the Synners came out of the blocks with all guns blazing on the weekend, playing with a pizzazz and a flair that haven’t been associated with Chadstone for a long time. Point Cook was stung into action after quarter time, kicking twenty-one of the last twenty-six goals to blow the Demons away. Encouraging signs though for Chadstone and maybe that elusive victory isn’t too far away after all. Aaron Marsh dominated the forward fifty with a bag of seven goals, whilst Tristan Furr continued his rich vein of form picking up disposals at will across the ground. Swinburne Uni has firmed in some premiership markets after another telling performance on the weekend. The Razorbacks are yet to be challenged this season and appear to be making up for their finals meltdown last season.

hosted North Brunswick on Saturday and found themselves down at quarter time against a highly competitive outfit. However, the Razorbacks shifted into overdrive in the second half to put the Bulls away by seven goals in the end. Jason Brun was everywhere and Aaron Pettifer collected a swag of possessions and potentially some votes. Eley Park Sharks were many pundits’ premiership tip at the start of the season but their shaky form continued on the weekend with another less than convincing performance. Taking nothing away from the vastly improved Cobras, the Sharks wasted plenty of opportunities before just sneaking over the line in a tight last second half. Zaal Khariwala was the Sharks shining light, as was David Viola who chimed in with half a dozen goals. For the maligned Manningham side, Scott McPherson continued his outstanding start to the

RESERVES

Tom Brain

MEMORIES Where were you and what were you doing in early September 1972? E Reserve Section that year threw out many great games. At the end of the Home and Away season we saw AJAX on top, followed by the then State Savings Bank (my team), Old Ivanhoe and Marcellin. These were four very evenly matched sides, with each having had a victory over the others during the season. Old Ivanhoe accounted for Marcellin in the First Semi, and had the week off waiting for AJAX and SSB to fight out the Second Semi. Led by their big ruckman and coach Hiram Janover, the Jackers absolutely thrashed the Bankers, who went away with their tails between their legs having to regroup for the next week. Unbeknownst to us and the Hoers at the time, the Grand Final was set down for the Jewish Day of Atonement, which precluded the Jackers from playing. Despite repeated requests by AJAX to have the game moved to another date, the VAFA administration of the day denied this request. And so the 1972 E Section Reserves Prelim became the Grand Final. The day dawned bright and sunny and as I drove to the Brens Oval, I had a great feeling of anticipation and anxiety. No one had any idea what would transpire and in the SSB rooms, we were decidedly nervous. We had plenty of support from the senior players, who would have their day in the sun the next week in their own big dance. At the first break, it was the Bankers who led by a couple of twins. Old Ivanhoe, not to be denied, clawed their way back into it and led by a couple of points as we headed to the rooms for a rest. There were no such things as rotations in those days. SSB veteran coach Kevin Stafford implored us to stay composed and the breaks would come our 20

way, it was nip and tuck in the championship quarter with first one then the other taking control, but never fully, so much so that at the final break the scores were level. “Keep going, they will break eventually,” repeats Staffo and for a while it looked like happening. We controlled the play and opened up an 8 point lead with 10 minutes left. Both sides were desperate, diving on the ball and creating plenty of stoppages. The Hoes got one back and were points behind with about a minute left. That minute seemed like an eternity. The ball entered the Hoes’ goalsquare and a brown sock in a pair of then new Adidas boots touched the ball. As it dribbled towards the goal, three SSB defenders made a gallant but fruitless attempts to smother it. The Hoes were home by 4 points. There was in us a feeling of desolation and devastation when that final siren sounded. Chances to play in the ultimate game of the year and to win a flag with one’s mates doesn’t happen often (or often enough!) Although hurting, the Bankers were quick to shake hands and congratulate the victors. It was great to see the Field Umpire Ian Jenkin come into our rooms and commiserate and say how courageous he thought we had been. For the pundits, the better players for Old Ivanhoe were, Carroll, Gibbs, Gill, Dickson, Gurney and Wiltshire. And for SSB, Jeff Dawson (who would play in a premiership with the seniors a week later) Barnes, Dumbrell, Phillips, Brain (yes, me) and Hatfield. So any clubs, past players or officials out there who have vivid memories of special games in their careers send me an Email to brainco@ optusnet.com.au or an SMS or phone call to 0423 433 488 by 5pm Monday nights.

RETRO

Geoff Reilley

12 MONTHS AGO – 2011 Collegians became the only undefeated team in Premier A Section following their comprehensive victory over Old Carey, 18.17 to 8.11. Shura Taft was at his brilliant best for the Lions as they systematically took Old Carey apart. Best – Tardif, Shaft (8), Strachan (3), Kondarovskis, Croft, Cassidy (Collegians) and Smithwick, Howat, Willingham, Josephs, Evans (Old Carey). Premier B revealed a great result for Marcellin when they proved too strong for Beaumaris in an entertaining contest. Trent Carlson and Jonathan Bortolotto were in outstanding form for the Eagles while Matt Petering and Callan Buckley worked extremely hard for Beauy. After a slow start Beaumaris fought back to be only 2 points down at half time. Marcellin’s accuracy kept them in front at three quarter time and they consolidated by the end of the game 13.7 to 9.12. Best – T Carlson, J Bortolotto, Newnes, Birrell, J Carlson, Viney (Marcellin) and Petering, Buckley, Duggan, Atkins, Ensor, Haynes (Beaumaris). A ‘Big V Memories’ article in The Amateur Footballer featured the recollections of one of amateur football’s real characters, Brett “Bomber” Burden, former Kew champion who went to Ormond late in his career and played in the 1990 A Section premiership with the Monds and subsequently to SKOBS. ‘Bomber’ was a colorful and talented midfielder who played under three legendary coaches at State level - Bernie Sheehy, John Fisher and Mike McArthurAllen (pictured). He was selected in the All-Australian team in 1988 and was great company off the field! 5 YEARS AGO – 2007 South Melbourne Districts, after a sluggish start, overcame a determined Glen Eira, 9.13 to 6.8, and became the only undefeated team in D2 Section. It took a 6.4 last term by the Southerners to get over the line and they would certainly need to be more 22

rounded in future games. Glen Eira dropped out of the top four as a result of this loss. Best – Atherton, Costello, Kealy, Kohnesheen, Batchelor, Mahoney (South) and Prantzos, Clark (3), Stuchberry, Tkocz, Massis, Clements (Glen Eira). The field umpires were Alan Stubbs and Santo Caruso, two of the VAFAUA’s long serving contributors. Swinburne Uni ‘broke their duck’ in D3 Section with a strong win over Kew 15.13 to 9.8. It was the second half before Swinburne took control of the game, they certainly looked far more cohesive after half time. Best – Dell’Olio (5), Whiting, Prior, Farrington, Lyons, Walsh (Swinburne) and Wyley, Williams, Looker, Ridd, Evans, Sortino (Kew). Ryan Robertson and the legendary Anthony Damen were the field umpires. St Mary’s took some time to shake off a very determined Box Hill North but their 6 goals in the third quarter was the game breaker. BestArmstrong, Dwyer (12), Papaluca, Gatehouse, Lane, Purcell (St Mary’s) and Riscalla, Penny, Cook, Vagias, Martini, Irvine (BHN). St Mary’s received an added bonus when they were awarded $500 from the AFL Victoria draw for Bronze Level Clubs recognizing the club’s Quality Club Program. 10 YEARS AGO – 2002 In D2 Section, Parkside opened up with 5.2 to 0.3 against top four team Peninsula Old Boys. By half time Peninsula had made up some of the difference but Parkside were looking strong, determined and dangerous. A rousing half time address stirred the Pirates into action and, with an 8.7 third quarter and showing better fitness and run, they raced ahead of the Red Devils. Peninsula held control throughout the final term to win 15.15 to 11.8. Best – A Parson, Cannon, Warner, Payze (4), Bowen, Kent (Peninsula) and Romano, Martinez, Hockey, Barlow, Moodie, Schwabl (Parkside). It was an entertaining contest in D3 Section between Richmond Central and Power House that belied their respective positions at the bottom of the ladder. With only 2 points separating the two teams it was Power House who surged in the third term with 7 goals to 1 and everybody had a hand in the scoring. Power House continued THE AMATEUR FOOTBALLER 2012


on in the last quarter 20.14 to 13.14. Best – Burt, Robinson, Robertson, Haseler, Rainer (3), Boland (Powerhouse) and Trotter, Smith (5), C white, O’Sullivan, Avery, Barry (Richmond). North Brunswick remained undefeated in D4 section with a narrow victory over Old Westbourne 17.11 to 16.9. It was only in the last quarter that North Brunswick took control. Best – Care, Closter, Verga (5), D Newton (7), Adams, Twaddle (NB) and Bouloh, Horsburgh (4), Wilson, Leitch, Huntington, Fairfield (OW). 20 YEARS AGO – 1992 The ladder in D Section evened out when Preston Marist Brothers defeated Old Ivanhoe 17.17 to 17.12 in a thriller where there was never more than a goal the difference from half time. Best – O’Brien, McGaw, Hepburn (5), S Tanner (4), A Philp, Smith (Preston) and G Farlacas, M Huber, B Yarwood (3), Young, I Wells, J Weddle (Old Ivanhoe). Doveton defeated Bulleen United 17.24 to 14.13 in E Section allowing Doveton to stay in touch with the top four. Best – Forgiarini, S Reiger, J Johnston, Ladgrove, Pauline (3), Giddens (Doveton) and Snape, Thompson, Hopkins (5), Deany, May, Cotterill (Bulleen United). 30 YEARS AGO – 1982 There were only three senior teams remaining undefeated across the sections; Old Camberwell and St Kevins Old Boys in C Section and Old Ivanhoe in D Section – the scribe was predicting a great season in this section. Old Camberwell were far too strong for St Kilda CBC 21.10 to 11.11 and St Kevins trounced Fawkner 30.15 to 12.8. Crothers (6) and Steven (3) were the main goal kickers for the Wells and J Griffin, Hanna (4), Beale (3), Callanan (3) for SKOBS. The two leading teams in A Section, Marcellin Old Collegians and North Old Boys had comfortable wins and scored freely. Marcellin 25.9 to Old Xaverians 15.21 saw some excellent kicking for goal for the winners, not so good from the Xavs. Best – Cullinan (3), Jones, B Cooper, Reghenzani, T Holmes (4), P Holmes (Marcellin) and Atkinson, P Curtain, J Morrissey (3), Millard, O’Shaughnessy THE AMATEUR FOOTBALLER 2012

(4), Carmody (Xavs). Old Brighton’s accuracy in their B Section match against Ivanhoe got them over the line 14.7 to 11.17 and the Hoes were very disappointed with their wasted opportunities. The win for the Tonners was their first for the season while the loss for Ivanhoe saw them slip out of the top four. Best – Wilson, Grant, Beck (5), Charge, Draper, Kent (OB) and Cameron, Aristotle, Stewart, Course, Bye (6), Baker (Ivanhoe). 40 YEARS AGO – 1972 State Savings Bank continued on their winning way in E Section and easily defeated their banking rivals, ANZ. But what shocking kicking by the winners – 7.25 to 4.8. Best – Allen, Spithill (3), Muir, Brennan, James, Tobin (SSB) and McGregor, Pearson, Male, Sicily, Trimboli, Kirby (ANZ). Elsternwick won again and were the in fine form, this time versus Old Mentonians. It was close until half time but the Wicks ran away in the second half with precision footy. Final score 20.20 to 12.13. Best – Sharpe (4), Ramsay, Comber, Curtain (4), Cornehls, Street (Elsternwick) and Wood, Broderick (5), Hartman, Sullivan, Francis, Uren (Mentonians). Alan Metcalf became only the second player to record 200 games for AMP Society. Affectionately known as “The Flea”, Alan had seen seven coaches come and go and had won the team’s Most Consistent Award three years running. 60 YEARS AGO – 1952 Duncan Anderson, (pictured) Uni Blues’ champion full forward, kicked 12 goals in their big win over Old Paradians 20.16 to 9.13. In Ivanhoe’s big win over State Savings Bank, the stars were Jim and Jack Neeson, Ken Aldred and John Manuell for the Hoes. Commonwealth Bank (9.14) just scraped in from Hampton Rovers (9.12). 23

FTLOTG Former Caulfield Grammarian and Uni Blue John Kanis, who is doing a spot of broadcasting with 96.5 Inner FM this season was presented with his old Fieldsman jumper at Sportscover last Sunday. Uni Blue fan Warwick Hutchins handed John his old guernsey, which he had bought at auction on the occasion of JK’s 300th game, with the proceeds split between his two clubs. Hutchins and Kanis were guests at the Winning Edge Presentations lunch held prior to the first Sportscover Arena Match of the Round.

Young VAFA umpires Ben Nicholson and Andrew Heffernan have been selected as participants in the the AFL Victoria Umpire Mates Program, which has a successful track record in connecting flourishing local umpires with professional AFL umpires. The pair will be under the watchful eye of Shane McInerney, who has umpired over 300 games, THE AMATEUR FOOTBALLER 2012

HAPPY MOTHERS DAY A very happy Mothers’ Day to all of our Mums. Thousands of Mums have made significant contributions to the VAFA and to our clubs over the years and we thank them for their service and their influence on their sons. Every day should be Mothers’ Day, but make Sunday especially memorable.

officiated in AFL finals, including grand finals, and been the AFL Umpire of the Year. The aim of the program is to create an environment in which a ‘mateship’ is formed, which will help the personal development and acquisition of knowledge and skills that  are required for young umpires to progress towards an AFL career. 43


FTLOTG FAST, FURIOUS . . . We think our footy is pretty hot, but it’s also family-friendly. This pic was taken at Sportscover last Saturday. The young ones didn’t seem too interested in the form of Tommy O’Sullivan or Al Austin. The dog seemed more amused by the kids playing in the Elsternwick Park water feature. UMPIRES APPRECIATED It has come and gone again and all of our umpires were feted in fine style by our clubs. At Sportscover, Dave Hindle was waving the flags in his four hundredth VAFA game, while at the opposite end we had Chilli Segota, who is looking forward to 700. Both were among the panel of umpires introduced to the crowd before the game. At Williamstown CYMS, which instituted the idea in 2008, popular AFL goal umpire Chelsea Roffey tossed the coin. 44

MILESTONES

200

Old Mentonian David Alexander has been a great contributor to the Panthers over the years. A product of the Club’s Under 19s, David has been a great clubman over the year and a regular senior player. David’s outstanding fitness indicates that he has a few seasons left and we look forward to seeing that unique left foot kicking style for many more games to come. Fellow Panther Justin Costello has been an integral part of the club since 1999. Justin has done just about everything for the Panthers including being Club captain, Club Champion and President and has been an inspiration to all at the Panthers both on and off the field. and remains an important part of the OMFC team in 2012.

150

Ormond’s Shane Metz first Senior game was in 1996, and in the same year he captained the U19’s. Shane played a significant role in Ormond’s Reserves flags of 2007 and 2008. In 2011 he won the Club 18 South Best and Fairest and goal-kicking. Shane has started 2012 showing great form.

150

Marcellin’s Luke Considine was a key member of the 2008 B Section premiership team, and the Best and Fairest winner in 2009. He played his first senior game in 2002 as a back pocket and over time has moved into the midfield where he has displayed his hard running ability and thirst for the contest. Luke has battled serious injury over the last few years and today’s milestone is just reward for the diligence he has shown right through his rehab and into training, post-game rehab and pre-game preparation.

150

Old Mentonian Nick Fisher has been an outstanding contributor to the Club and has played at senior, reserves and U19 levels at the Club and won the Reserves’ best and fairest award in 2010.

100

Old Mentonian Tim Speers is the second player of the U19 ‘class of 2006’ to reach the 100 game mark. Tim is a great contributor to the Panthers off the field and he is also an integral member of the Club’s senior team.

50

If you would like a player milestone recognized, please email Olivia@vafa.com.au by noon Tuesday. Please include a pic of the player where possible.

Another product of the U19 premiership team, Old Mentonian Matt Jenkins has been a great contributor to the club over the past six years. Old Geelong’s David Andrew started at the club in 2009 where he played in an U19 premiership in his first season. West Brunswick’s Chris Ashley started his career in 2006, and the 50 game milestone has been a long time coming. Marcellin’s Matthew Gasparini has been a very welcome addition to the The Nest and has shown some great promise as a halfforward/on-baller with his incredible pace and hardness at the footy. Aquinas’ Adam Wilczynski.

DE LA GETS THERE - JUST. We wrote last week about the daunting task faced by some U19 Premier teams when playing against competition giants. De La hit the field with a percentage of four hundred and might have expected a fairly short sharp effort to draw clear of the 1-1 St Bede’s/Mentone Tigers. However, the Bellers led narrowly at quarter time and after failing to kick a major in the second term fell behind by sixteen points. They reduced that to just two points at the lemons and finished slightly the stronger to win by five points. A great effort from the Tiges, but DLS got the win. Fitzroy had its issues last week, but showed up a lot stronger this time out. The Lions fell behind in the first term, went further back in the second, but mounted a strong effort in the second half to prevent further flooding. Eamonn Scott booted four for the Roys while Dylans Patcas and Leech were high in their best. Old Xaverians beat Old Scotch in a tight one. Though they led all afternoon, Xavs failed to shake the Red Men. Nick Sharkey and Lachlan Smyth traded hat-tricks as the Red and Blacks held the Cards at bay. St Bernard’s stayed unbeaten when it was too strong for Beaumaris. Mike Hughes slammed though five and was best on as the Snow dogs Rolled. Nathan Heaton was best for the Sharks. The Varsity Derby is always a highly anticipated event and a hotly contested affair. Les Bleus led this one by fifteen points and won it by twenty, with Pat Gardiner booting four of the victors’ seven majors. In Section 2, St Kevin’s shot away in the first term and again in the last to beat the previously 48

loss-less Fieldsmen comfortably. Zach Ginies was best for Kevs and Lachy Nankervis booted three, while Caulfield was best served by Matt McTernan. Old Brighton took on Werribee Districts in top versus bottom fixture, but the game was close throughout. A point the difference at the half, five points at the lemons, but fifteen at the end as the Tonners steadied to take the points. Tom Hamilton was named best and Mick Tregear got three for the winners, while three Matts – Turner, Fitzpatrick and Despott – were in everything for the Bees. Another close one in the Bulleen Derby as the Ts beat Marcellin by a goal, or, to report inaccuracy more accurately, six points. The Eagles began better but blew its first quarter. Trinity were as prodigal in the second and at three quarter time, Marcellin led by 14 points. Trinity not only had shots in the final term, they nailed them to steal the points. Old Haileybury trailed for most of the afternoon but not at the final siren. Old Carey faded in the fourth and went down. Matt Mitchell kicked four for the Magentas, while Jordan Ceppi had the same for the Panthers. In Section 3, Mazenod was all over Ormond and beat them by 98 points. The Greco Bros booted five between them and Alex Benbow got three as the Nodders jumped away early and were never caught. Blair Atkins booted the Monders’ only major. Northern Blues easily accounted for Collegians, with Damon Marcon and Leigh Judd in top form. The Lions were well served by Nick Blackney and Lindsay Apted. THE AMATEUR FOOTBALLER 2012

PEGS rumbled over Bernies in the Northwest Derby. Matt Semini and Brett Hannah were omnipresent for the Peggers, while Andrew Zammit was in good form for the Snow Dogs. Old Xavs managed just a solitary behind in the final term and was overrun by the Wellers. Toms Schipper and Stayner were in everything for Camberwell, while Xavs were well served by Tim Fenton. In the North, La Trobe pounded Emmaus St Leo’s, but best for the plucky Two Blues were Robert Staley, Justin Petrulis, Alexander McDougall, Sam Symeonidis, Steven Downie, Adam LaRiccia Melbourne High was no match for Therry Penola, but Jerome Ah-kan , Liam Ferris, THE AMATEUR FOOTBALLER 2012

Tom Fernie, Peter Melilli, Sam Hayes, Michael Hughes, Sam Shearer, Marco Dogliotti, Jake Duell and Tom Fernie plugged away for the Unicorns. Willy CYMS kept Old Geelong at bay and won by twelve points. Trent Dimitriou slotted for for CYs, while Rupert Kemp from OG vied with CY’s Nick Holdsworth for best on ground honours. Ivanhoe ploughed AJAX, though Ashley Shenker, Adam Lerner, Jordan Rubinstein, excelled for the Jackers, who were always against it after a slow first term. In the South, Lewis Emmerson booted eleven as Parkdale Vultures pelted Beaumaris. “Emmo” was accorded BOG honours, while Josh Nicklin was best for the Sharks. St Bede’s/Mentone Tigers sneaked home against top of the table De La Salle, reversing the fortunes from the U19 Premier clash. Steve Lay got six for the Tiges and Rob McCarthy nailed four for the Bellers and both were praised highly in their respective team’s dispatches. Hayden Brodie dominated action as the Pirates over-ran Hampton Rovers. The Green and Gold could muster only a solitary goal in the first half and despite doubling that output in the second, were no match for their Southern cousins. St Mary’s Salesian beat Monash Blues, with Chris Hill kicking four. Chris Wheeler kicked four for the ‘Ashes, who shot straight, but not quite often enough. Billy Anderson was best for the Sainters, while Ollie Fitzpatrick was strong for the Sky Blues. 49

UMPIRES

Steve McCarthy & Cam Davidson

CAM’S BACK! Cam- It’s fantastic to be back in Melbourne, and back to the VAFA after a few weeks in China. A big thanks to Macca for looking after the column for the first couple of weeks, and to the coaching panel for appointing me to the first two games in Premier C. A draw and a 2-pointer in the first two weeks....not sure I want to move back up the grades! “Wow, those two are hot!” A member of the VAFAUA executive received a text from his much better half last Saturday afternoon who had been watching a friend play at Beaumaris. It read along the lines of ‘I spent the afternoon perving at the two field umpires.....Joe (Hartwig) and some other young guy’. Further investigation revealed that Hoops also had that game (let’s assume he’s the “young guy”). Sadly the third umpire didn’t rate a mention. ‘Droppy’ must be on the wrong side of 40.....

from Yarra Valley OB a few years ago and is yet another example of a club person succeeding with the transition to the whistle. Umpire Appreciation Day Once again Umpire Appreciation Day was acknowledged by the Williamstown CYMS Football Club last week. The day was also acknowledged throughout all VAFA sections and we as a group appreciated it. Hopefully we can keep the respect going.

Family Football (continued) Following up a story from two weeks ago where we listed all the family members on our list, as expected we missed a few, so major apologies to the following. Father and son Ray (goal) and Frank (field) Stokes, and of course father and son field umpires David and Tom Windlow. With this year’s influx of new young boundary and goal umpires we’re sure to have missed a few more so feel free to let us know. We do however note the Meadows’, the Adams’ the Quinlivens, the Bevans, the Booths, the Powers, the Andersons, the Logozzos, and the Locandros. Fantastic to see such a huge family involvement within our ranks. Milestone Another one this week as Andrew Hartnett notches up 50 VAFA games. Andrew joined us 56

BEES BUZZ KRUSHERS Dane Thomas kicked six and Kieren Delaney four as Werribee Districts beat favoured Oakleigh by five goals. It was an even start, but the Bees moved into gear in the second term and blitzed in the last. Mason Smith and Nick Christou stood tall for the Tiges, while the Oaks had Luke Daidone and Luke Gogis travelling nicely.

This week, it’s tough to see Oakleigh going down to Willy, but expect a stronger showing from the Seagulls. St Bernard’s welcome Rupertswood and their overlapping histories provides an interesting backdrop. I think Rupo here. I suspect Werribee Districts will be too strong for UHS-VU Flemington, who return after the bye.

THE STRONG STAY STRONG With twenty per cent of the season played, the ladders have taken shape with only three of the twenty-two competitors undefeated. Conditions experienced during Round 3 games may have contributed to some unexpected results as the comparative ability of the competitors became more apparent.

twenty two point defeat on Richmond Central Snakes. Forward, Raymond Steer had a day out for Therry Penola by kicking nine goals. Leader Hawthorn was much too strong for UHS-VU whose players were again unable to apply scoreboard pressure as Hawthorn won by one hundred and twelve points.

In Section 1, the big surprise (at least to me) was St Bernard’s forty-seven point defeat of Monash Blues for whom the “Great Trek” and early morning start must have added to the Snow Dogs’ on field supremacy. At Darling Park, Old Xaverians maintained its unbeaten record with a fifty-nine point win over Prahran/ Assumption, whose poor form must be causing concerns around Toorak Park. In the afternoon game, De La Salle moved into fifth place through its forty point win over Williamstown CYMS. De La Salle’s accuracy was a feature of the game, which sent the CYs tumbling to seventh place. Fitzroy won its first game with a fifteen point margin over Therry Penola, which remains winless. In the 3079 showdown, Ivanhoe, with Tim Sheahan outscoring Old Ivanhoe himself, moved up to sixth place through their forty six point victory. North Old Boys/ St Patrick’s lead in the competition was short lived because through their seventy five point defeat by Old Melburnians, the Brunswick based side slid to third place.

TODAY: Section 1: Two early morning games are scheduled i.e. Williamstown C.Y.M.S. and St Bernard’s and Therry Penola playing De La Salle. I favour Williamstown CYMS mainly through its home ground advantage. De La Salle should consolidate their top six position by recording a big win over Therry Penola, who languish eleventh. Old Melburnians should continue on their winning way against Monash Blues even though the game is at the University. Ivanhoe, with Tim Sheahan dominant up forward, should account for North Old Boys/ St Patrick’s even on the Gillon Reserve. First meets twelfth when Old Xaverians host Old Ivanhoe. It would surely be one of the all time VAFA upsets if Old Ivanhoe were to win this game. Prahran Assumption journey to Clifton Hill to play Fitzroy. The Four Blues bring little form to this game although their long standing stars Craig Berger and Jason Storer are capable of troubling Fitzroy. At home

In Section 2, two of my five selections proved wrong. Old Geelong, whose form is a tipster’s nightmare, easily defeated the previously unbeaten Bulleen Templestowe by eighty eight points. At Bundoora, Kew proved me a poor judge when they won their first game by beating Old Paradians by eight points. Richmond Central Cardinals moved to third place with a one hundred and six point win over Eley Park. Unbeaten Therry Penola kicked the Section Sweep when they inflicted a one hundred and 60

I select Fitzroy … just! Section 2: Bulleen-Templestowe should regain “that winning feeling” today by defeating UHSVU. Old Geelong travels out east to meet Eley Park, which is yet to win. This is one game Old Geelong should win. I select them despite an uneasy feeling based on Old Geelong’s enigmatic record. In what could be a final preview, Richmond Central Cardinals journey to Hawthorn, who certainly must be flag

favourites. Hawthorn is my selection although the margin should give a good guide to the Cardinals’ rating in the Section. Therry Penola journey to Kew where they should prove too talented for the home side. Richmond Central Snakes welcome Old Paradians to the Bartlett Oval. The Paradians disappointed last week and today, I suspect they will just take the four points after a dour struggle.
