Scouting notes: Herald Sun Shield Grand Final

ST BERNARD’S College have won the Herald Sun Shield, with a 16-point victory over St Patrick’s College at Simonds Stadium on Wednesday. In appalling first half conditions, both teams could only muster a goal each – with the wet conditions making for a sloppy first half. The sun came out in the second half and […]

Scouting notes: Herald Sun Shield Semi-Finals

SANDRINGHAM played host to the two 2017 Herald Sun Shield Semi-Finals, with St Patrick’s College and St Bernard’s coming out as the winners. The pair will face off in the Grand Final next month at Simonds Stadium. In blustery conditions, a handful of AFL clubs were watching on and Matt Balmer provides a few of […]

Weekend That Was – Round 10

A COMBINED 78 disposals, 16 marks, 12 clearances, 16 inside 50s and two goals to Geelong Falcons pair James Worpel and Cassidy Parish sunk the Bendigo Pioneers to bounce back from the Falcons’ only loss of the season. The Falcons proved too good for the Pioneers, who were missing a number of key players due […]

Weekend That Was – Round 7

A DROUGHT-BREAKING win to Calder Cannons on the weekend has ensured every TAC Cup club will have sung the song at least once by the midway point of the season. Calder won 18.9 (117) to Gippsland’s 12.13 (85), with bottom-age talent Jack Bytel racking up 34 disposals (17 contested) at 73.5 per cent efficiency, to […]

Sharp kickers shape up early

AS the saying goes, good kicking is good football. But exactly what is a good kick? Generally it is one that hits the target, but that can just be an effective kick. A damaging kick will influence a contest. As a general rule of thumb, the better kicks in the competition are usually outside players […]

Weekend That Was – Round 6

A STERLING victory by Bendigo Pioneers over Sandringham Dragons has helped the Pioneers move within percentage of a top eight spot. Bendigo led throughout the game, but it was a six goals to three third term which saw the Pioneers move 19 points clear, before holding on in a dour final term to win 11.13 […]

Looking Ahead TAC Cup Round 4

Bendigo Pioneers (10th, 1-2) vs. Oakleigh Chargers (4th, 2-1) Both Bendigo and Oakleigh contain some of their top-end talent despite the likes of Lochie O’Brien, Paddy Dow and Jarrod Brander missing due to school football for the Pioneers. The Pioneers’ strength in my opinion lies across the half-back line with all those players – Kane […]

Stats Central: Damaging duo omissions cause headaches

THERE are plenty of valuable players at TAC Cup level to their teams, but on the inside, few would be more sorely missed than Western Jets stars Cam Rayner and Lachlan Fogarty. They are creating talk around draft circles as likely first round picks – if not in the top 10 potentially, but while they were […]
