BLOODHOUNDS TASTE FIRST SUCCESS SINCE 2002

GRAND FINAL AT WALLAROO - KADINA 12.11 (83) DEF BUTE 7.8 (50)

REPORT - Lawrie Colliver, Editor Countryfooty.com.au

Sunday September 19, 2010

Kadina produced a dominant display in winning the 2010 YPFL Grand Final by 33 points. In what was expected to be a close affair, the Bloodhounds ran away to a 32 point lead in the first term and were never headed. Bute put up a fight in the middle two terms and got to within 4 goals in the last term, but in the end Kadina’s desire and a strong midfield proved too strong as they won their first Premiership since 2002.

In windy conditions, Kadina kicked to the Netball court end in the first term and dominated play from the word go. Ruckman Jon Lee was dominating at the centre tap outs and a strong midfield was providing numerous opportunities for tall forwards Willy Serle (2 goals), Brendon Papps, Loren Franz who all kicked goals in the first term. Small forward Trevor Harradine was dangerous  in the first quarter which saw the Bloodhounds lead 5.4 to 0.2.

Bute were trying hard but couldn’t get clear possessions, with Kadina tackling superbly from the get go. Bute’s Mail Medalist Sam Trengove was working hard but under pressure most of the time, while Chris Langford was getting most of his possessions in the back half - at times his disposal by foot let him down.

In the second quarter Kadina goaled early and it looked as though the game was turning into a rout. But the Roosters started to work themselves into the game with Haydn Cock getting his hands on the ball up forward. Nick Polkinghorne and Dan Avery were working hard for Bute getting the ball inside 50 and had Cock made the most of his three set shots, where he only ended up with 1.2, things may have been closer than 36 points at half time.

Kadina were still having their moments, but in general field play Bute were doing well, however their forward line – apart from Cock - wasn’t functioning at all. Scott Gunning was completely unsighted with also some poor disposals from the Roosters causing them problems. Kadina led 7.5 to 1.5 and looked to have the game at their mercy at half time.

The third term opened up with both sides having a crack, Stewart Wehr made his presence felt with some good marking and two vital goals which gave Bute a sniff. After a period of domination from the Roosters, Kadina defender Derek Sansbury found himself forward of centre and charged down to kick a goal which gave the Bloods their 6-goal lead back. His presence in defence all day was vital, but at that moment which he did push forward, it deflated Bute who were starting to look a bit like that side that had won 12 games in the season. Ben Adams was giving some drive across half back for Bute, but again some of his teammates were letting the side down with poor disposal via foot.

Serle also kicked a goal in the third term – his 4th as both sides traded two goals apiece – ¾ time saw Kadina still ahead by 35 points, 9.6 (60) to 3.7 (25)

Bute knew they had to score early and rapidly if there were come home with the breeze and pinch the Grand Final. Finally Scott Gunning came to life and he kicked two early goals, suddenly the Rooster supporters had something to cheer about as they drew inside four goals for the first time since the opening quarter.

With Kadina under threat, Cam Faulkner really came into the game getting the ball forward with five or six key possessions. Trevor Harradine after a couple of quiet terms sprung into action and goaled and then Tim Honner kicked a vital goal with 10 minutes to play, that put the game beyond doubt. Kadina home by a 33 point margin and deservedly so.

Jon Lee was a fine player in the ruck for the Bloodhounds all day and was very deserving of the Best on Ground award. He dominated the centre bounces and took many marks all day around the ground.

Ben Waller was strong around the ground all day,  while Cam Faulkner was a hard man to stop around the ball, he had a fine last term when his team needed it.  Brendan Papps kicked two goals and was hard to stop up forward while Indigenous duo Trevor Harradine and Derek Sansbury were strong performers, in particular Sansbury who was cool in defence all afternoon.

For the Roosters, Dane Avery was a solid four quarter contributor across half back, sneaking forward to kick a goal in the last term when Bute made its final surge. Benn Adams tried hard in defence all day and won plenty of ball. Adam Cock had a interesting duel with Harradine and split the honours on that match up, while Chris Langford who was obviously playing under a fitness cloud played well early but faded as the match wore on. Matthew Millard worked hard up forward and Nick Polkinghorne had his moments on the wing when the pressure was on.

All up, Kadina were deserved Premiers, their first flag since 2002.

TRENGOVE WINS MAIL MEDAL

FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 17, 2010

Bute’s Sam Trengove has won the Mail Medal in 2010, this years count held at Ardrossan last Sunday.

Trengove finished on 23 votes, one ahead of Kadina’s Zac Edwards. Edwards led at the half way point by a massive 8 votes having polled 19 to the midway point, but only scored  three more votes for the second half of the season.

Both players will be involved in this weekend’s Grand Final, to be played at Wallaroo, in front of what should be a big crowd.

Bute has beaten Kadina in both encounters this season, but despite that the Bloodhounds are deemed to be warm favourites.

BUTE AND KADINA FACE OFF

August 1, 2010

The battle between  two of the YPFL Premiership contenders Bute and Kadina was an extremely tight affair in the first half, with three points separating the sides. After having nothing in it at half time, the Roosters away in the third term on their home turf to add 6.3 to 3.1 to set up a 17 point lead. It would prove to be enough – in a lack lustre last term neither side could dominate the Roosters went on to win by 21 points

Michael Polkinghorne and Jess Kenny were best for Bute in their 10th win of the season, while for Kadina, Jonathon Lee and Cam Faulkner were best with Willy Serle kept to a few touches and just the one goal.

It was a day for the Pasky forwards, as they trounced the Demons at Moonta by 73 points. Matthew Bryant (9 goals) and Matthew Rodda (5 goals) dominated from inside the forward 50 for the Magpies while for Moonta, Ben Talbot (3 goals) and Dylan Gaston had good days in another disappointing performance.

Ardrossan beat the CY Cougars in the clash of the cellar dwellers by 40 points at Ardrossan. The Roos controlled the game right from the start, winning every quarter to capture their third win of the season, George Rowntree and Andrew Pryor their best two players. For the Cougars, who are destined to finish bottom for new coach Jay McCauley, Max Daniel and Tom Van Schaik (3 goals) played well.

While Wallaroo ensured its spot in the finals with a comprehensive 90 point win over the CMS Crows at Minlaton. Scores were levelat quarter time, but it was one way traffic after that as the Dogs added 17 goals to two in the remaining three quarters.

Next week, Ardrossan host Moonta, Paskeville travels to Maitland to play the Cougars, Bute heads to Minlaton to meet the CMS Crows, while in the match of the round, Wallaroo play the Southern Eagles.

WALLAROO BEAT BUTE, PASKY WIN AT EDITHBURG

There were a couple of upsets in Round 13 of the YPFL, the first being Wallaroo's defeat of Bute by 43 points. Bute started well, leading by 14 points at quarter time, but could only manage two goals for the rest of the match as the Bulldogs defence dug its toes in at its home ground. Wallaroo stitched up the game in the third term adding 5.2 to 1.1 with Brad Pearce kicking 4 goals for the match, Jake Summerton and Matthew Grillett were strong in their teams 7th win of the season. For Bute, only Nathan Hewett, Shane Slade and Sam Whelan were sighted in the best players list, in what was a poor performance coming off the bye.

Paskeville traveled to Edithburg as underdogs against the Southern Eagles, but came away winners by 33 points. They dominated the first term, kicking six goals to two before wrapping the game up in the last term adding 5.1 to 4.2 for a comfortable victory – moving a game clear in 2nd spot. Stuart Daniel and Brad Price in a team that had ten different goalkickers, while for the Eagles Matthew Allen and Jack Barlow were best.

The CMS Crows continued their excellent form of late, making it three wins in a row with a 78 point thrashing of Moonta at Minlaton. Ben Millar took advantage of plenty of ball from the midfield to kick seven goals with Daniel Glazbrook kicking four. For the Demons, Aiden Zwar (3 goals) continued his excellent form with Hayden Fowler also in the better players.

As expected, Kadina dealt the CY Cougars a 114 point hiding with Willy Serle ramming home ten goals in a fine display.

KADINA AND EAGLES HAVE SOLID WINS

Kadina continues to push for YPFL Premiership favouritism, after a 36 point win at Ardrossan. Willy Serle (6 goals) and Trevor Harradine (4 goals) were dangerous up forward, helping the Bloodhounds kick 8.5 to 1.0 in third term to decide the match. For Ardrossan, Luke Carter was a clear best with five goals.

The Southern Eagles outfit might disagree that Kadina are the team to beat, after winning at Moonta by 57 points. Jack Barlow and Jarrod Spencer were best for the Eagles while Sam Barlow dominated up forward kicking seven majors. For Moonta, Hugo Drogemuller and Brock Oliver were best while Aiden Zwar kicked four goals playing to his usual form.

The Crows continued the CY Cougars pain in 2010, winning at Maitland by 63 points. Adam Pitt and Jared Poulton were best with Jamie Kemp kicking five goals. For the Cougars, Max Daniel and Matthew Dalla were in the better players – the Cougars have now lost their last five games with their most recent win coming on May 15.

Paskeville defeated a disappointing Wallaroo by 22 points. The Magpies dominated the first three quarters to lead by 8 goals at the last change, before the Dogs regained some respectability in the last term, more than doubling their score. Stuart Daniel and Tim O’Hare were best for Pasky while for Wallaroo Jacob Coleman and Jake Summerton played well.

This week, Moonta heads to Minlaton to play the Crows, the Eagles host Pasky at Edithburg, Bute travels to Wallaroo and Kadina plays host to the CY Cougars.

BUTE WIN TOP OF THE TABLE CLASH

At home, Bute scored an important win in the top of the table clash against the Southern Eagles, winning by 33 points. It was tight in the first three quarters before the Roosters pulled away in the final term adding 6.0 to 1.6. Shane Slade and Peter Nicholls played well for Bute, while Scott Gunning kicked five goals. For the Southern Eagles, experiencing their second loss in a row, Jack Barlow and Jon Coombe were in their better players.

In the other big clash of the round, Kadina were too good at home in the end for Paskeville, winning by 52 points. The Bloodhounds led by just two goals at three quarter time, but blasted their way to victory in the last term adding 8.1 to 1.3 to win easily – Cam Faulkner was named best with Willy Serle kicking six goals. For Pasky, Stuart and Mike Daniel were best in a losing side.

Ardrossan travelled to Stansbury with high hopes against the CMS Crows, but it wasn’t to be with the homeside winning easily by 82 points. The Roos were never really in it with Ben Millar and David Marner best, Jamie Kemp the dominant forward of the day kicking six majors. Hayden Piersen and George Rowntree tried hard for the battling Roos.

Wallaroo cemented its spot in the top five, with a 45 point home win over the Cougars. Best for the Bulldogs was Shane Dunstan, while Brad Pearce was in top form up forward with five goals. The Central Yorke lads, who put up a fight for three quarters, had a functioning forward line for once, with veteran Greg Dyett best with five goals and George Davies (six goals) also in fine form.

The teams pause for Zone Championships this weekend, but after that on July 10, Moonta off the bye hosts the Southern Eagles, Paskeville meets Wallaroo, The Cougars have a visit from the CMS Crows and Kadina head seaside to play Ardrossan

ROOSTERS GIVE MAGPIES A FOOTY LESSON

Round 8 wrap, May 31, 2010

Bute gave Paskeville a football lesson at the weekend, winning at home by 114 points. The Rooster smashed them in all departments, with Nick Polkinghorne and Sam Trengove best, while Scott Gunning kicked six goals in a fine team performance. For Pasky, who slip to second now on percentage it was a very ordinary performance, they have a bye this week and with a week off for Inter-League which will give them plenty of time to reassess where they are heading into the second half of the season.

Moonta were accurate on the scoreboard and made the most of their chances, with Aiden Zwar and Dylan Gaston in top form, along with Brad Wilksch who kicked four goals in the damp conditions. For the Cougars, Adam Schulz and Todd Twelftree tried hard.

Kadina overcame a strong challenge from Wallaroo, to record a 20 point away win. The Bulldogs lead at half time before the Bloodhounds added 4.2 to 2.2 to grab the lead. They went on with the job in the last term to record their 5th win of the season and a share of third spot. Their best were  Jon Lee and Cam Faulkner while for the Dogs, Shaun Miller and Brad Pearce (3 goals) played well.

In wet conditions at Ardrossan, the Southern Eagles were too good for the homeside, winning by 22 points.  Goals were tough to find in the first half before the Eagles kicked 5.2 to 1.1 in the third term to establish a match winning lead. Jarrod Spencer and Jon Coombe played well for the Eagles, while for Ardrossan, George Rowntree and Matthew Schulz were their best.

PASKEVILLE STAY TOP IN YPFL - Round 7 update

Paskeville held off a game CY Cougars outfit to win by 10 points at Pasky. The Cougars could have had a better lead at quarter time, 3.6 was wasteful in the good conditions.

Brad Muster and Brendan Ramsey (3 goals) were best for the Magpies, with Shaun Hasting and Adam Hamilton best for the Cougars – George Davies in top form up forward, kicking six goals.

The Eagles took over in the last term to add 7.3 to 1.1 to run out winners by 36 points. Jack Barlow and Jon Coombe were best, while for the Bulldogs Ben Abela and Reece Page were best with Daniel Penney slotting home four majors.

Ardrossan caused an upset, thrashing Moonta by 102 points –recording their first win of 2010. A nine goal to one blitz in the first term set up the win, with Matthew Schulz and George Rowntree creating most of the havoc. Andrew Pryor and Matthew Stone kicked six goals each as the Roos chalked up their first win of the season in style. For the Demons, Aiden Zwar continued his excellent form, with Rick Mackereth and Lucas Gordon doing their bit in the horrific loss at home.

In the weekends other thrashing, Bute hammered the CMS Crows by 153 points. Scott Gunning was best afield with eight goals, while Matthew Millard kicked six. For the Crows, Sam Mumford and Adam Pitt tried hard.

COUGARS BREAK THROUGH FOR A WIN - ROUND 6 WRAP

After six rounds of the YPFL, the Central Yorke Cougars have finally broken through for their first win of the season.  They were out of the blocks in the first term adding 5.1 to 1.3 and held that margin for the rest of the day to run out winners by 27 points. George Davies was the spearhead up forward blasing home seven majors in what was Ja McCauley’s first win as coach.  Matthew Dalla and Nick Twelftree also played well in what was a much needed win after floggings in the previous two weeks. For Ardrossan, Rhys Evans and Hayden Pierson who are still winless this season.

Paskeville played host to Moonta, who were on fire early kicking 5.1 to 1.0 to lead nicely at quarter time. They maintained that advantage until the last term, when the Magpies came home strongly to hit the lead, adding 5.5 to 2.2 to run out 7 point winners in a good contest.  Ryan Secker and Stuart Daniel were best for the homeside with Aiden Zwar  best for Moonta along with Rick Mackereth.

Bute came from behind to blitz Kadina in the second half to win by 56 points. It was a bad loss at home for the Bloodhounds, who led 5.9 to 5.3 at half time. Matthew Millard was best afield for the Roosters with eight goals, while Hayden Cock chipped in with four. Zac Edwards and Cam Faulkner were best for the Bloodhounds.

An inspired nine goal efforts from Wallaroo’s Daniel Penney saw them to a comfortable 41 point win over the CMS Crows.  Glenn Bretten and Shane Dunstan both played well in the win, for the Crows  - Adam Pitt  and Jared Poulton were their best.

This week, Moonta played host to Ardrossan, Paskeville takes on the Cougars, the Crows travel to Bute and the Southern Eagles come off the bye to play Wallaroo at Warooka/

DEMONS ON THE BOARD IN 2010

Moonta finally secured their first victory of 2010 with a 25 point home win against the CMS Crows, mid-fielder Aiden Zwar and Brad Wilksch were the stars of the day, both kicking five goals. For the Crows, Adam Pitt and Jared Poulton were best, with Jarryd Dixie slotting home four majors. The win will be a boost for new coach Travis Skipworth, in his first season coaching the Demons.

The Southern Eagles upset Paskeville’s centenary season, with a 7 point victory, giving Pasky their first loss of 2010. The Magpies were good early taking comfortable 25 point lead at half time, before the Eagles pegged them back in the third, keeping them goalless while adding 3.7. The last quarter saw the Eagles do enough to win, Jon Coombe and Jack Barlow were best for the Eagles, while for Pasky Gareth Bowes and Mark Rundle were best.

Kadina gave the Cougars a 125 point whacking at Maitland. Willy Serle was back to his best kicking seven goals, with Benn Waller and Zac Edwards named best. For the Cougars, Paul Linke and Todd Twelftree were best in a disappointing effort.

The Roosters won their second game of the season with a comprehensive 45 point win over Wallaroo. The homeside were on fire in the second term, kicking eight straight to 2.1 to lead by 45 points at half time. Sam Trengove and Shane Slade were best with Simon Moroney kicking 5 goals. For the Bulldogs, this was their second loss on the trot – their best were Jacob Coleman and Brenton Cuthill.

This week, Paskeville will host Ardrossan, Moonta meets Bute, Kadina heads for Curramulka to play the CMS Crows, while the CY Cougars head for Warooka to meet the Southern Eagles.

EAGLES BEAT DEMONS IN GRNAD FINAL RE-MATCH

The Southern Eagles made it two wins on the trot after defeating Moonta by 4 points at Yorketown. After a slow start where they trailed at quarter time, they got into gear in the second term adding 4.4 to 0.3 to lead at halftime by 13 points.  Moonta fought back to narrow the gap to 7 points at the last change and in a hard slogging last quarter, the Eagles hung on to win despite being outscored. Luke Abell and Jon Coombe were best while for Moonta, Aiden Zwar was in good form along with Rick Mackereth and Ben Talbot

Paskeville’s continues to travel well in their Centenary year, beating Wallaroo by 7 points.  The Bulldogs paid for their early inaccuracy, with scores level at quarter time, despite having five more scoring shots. The Magpies sneaked away to lead at the half by 15 half time and maintained their lead to the final siren. Gareth Bowes and Matthew Bryant (5 goals) were the standouts for Pasky, while for Wallaroo, Kersrook recruit Brad Pearce (3 goals) and Ben Abela were best.

The CMS Crows lead the CY Cougars all day at Curramulka to win by 8 points.  The Crows were strong early kicking 5.7 to nothing in the opening quarter, before the Cougars fought back in the second to narrow the gap to 16 points at half time. The Crows stretched their lead to 35 points at the last change, before a late charge from the Cougars saw them fall short, in what was an encouraging finish to the game for their new coach Ja McCauley. Best for the Crows were Adam Pitt and Ben Millar, while for the Cougars Max Daniel and Corey Graham were best.

Ardrossan put up a game effort at Kadina, the Bloodhounds overwhelming them in the last term to win by 13 points. The Roos were great early, kicking 5.1 to 1.4 in the opening quarter, before the homeside fought back to have a narrow lead at half time. Ardrossan put themselves back in front in the third term and added 6.2 to 2.2 to give themselves a chance at three quarter time with a 17 point advantage. Sadly for the Roos, Kadina were too strong in the last quarter adding 4.6 to nothing to record the win. Derek Sansbury and Brett Burnell (4 goals) were best for Kadina with Matthew Schulz and George Rowntree doing best for the Roos.

Next round sees Moonta host the CMS Crows, the Southern Eagles travel to Paskeville, the Cougars visited by Kadina at Maitland and Bute play Wallaroo

WALLAROO AND KADINA START IN TOP FORM

Wallaroo showed they will be one of the big improvers in the YPFL in 2010, starting the season in style with a 70 point win against Moonta. The Bulldogs were far too strong for last years Grand Finalists, dominating the first half kicking 11.6 to 1.7. Josh Weight and 2009 Best and Fairest winner Glenn Bretten were best, with Kersbrook recruits Brad Pearce and Dylan Bingos also featuring in their first games for the club. For Moonta, Rick Mackereth and Aiden Zwar were their better players.

 

A day out from Willy Serle saw Kadina have a 9 point victory against the Southern Eagles. Serle was best a field with an eight goal haul as the  Bloodhounds kicked 5.5 in the first term, while holding the Eagles goalless. They maintained the lead to half time, being 31 points clear at the main break and stitched up at three quarter time when they led by 48 points. To the reigning Premiers credit, they came home with a wet sail, adding 7.4 to 1.1, which shows they may be one of the fitter sides in the competition. Apart from Serle, Zac Edwards and Brendan Papps were the stars for Kadina, while for the Eagles, Matthew Travis kicked seven goals in a fine display, with Shaun McWaters and Brad Coles also high up in the best players.

 

Paskeville got off to a great start in their Centenary year, with a 53 point victory over the Crows. It was a tight first half at Curramulka, before the Magpies pulled away in the third term, adding 6.3 to 0.1, before going on with the job in the last quarter for a comfortable win.  Brendan Ramsey (4 goals) and Ryan Price were best for the Magpies, with Brad Price kicking 6 goals for the winning side. For the Crows, Adam Jolly and Jason Marner played well, with Jay Parsons kicking three goals.

 

Bute started 2010 with a win at home against Ardrossan, beating the Roos by 47 points. It was all over at half time, with the Roosters in front by 59 points. Sturt recruit Dane Avery was best kicking four goals, with Chris Langford also playing well. For Ardrossan, ex-Salisbury player Andrew Pryor best on his debut with the club while Benn Coleman and Matthew Schulz playing well.

 

This week, unbeaten teams Paskeville and Kadina meet at the Magpies home ground, Bute travels to Yorketown to face the Southern Eagles, the CY Cougars start their campaign hosting Wallaroo while Ardrossan plays the CMS Crows with both teams looking for their first win. Moonta has the bye.

EAGLES COACH GREEN LOOKS FOR CONSOLIDATION IN 2010

by Lawrie Colliver

Inside the bowels of the Vetnor Hotel in Port Vincent is a man in his fifties running what is a very busy establishment. Situated in a prime spot in the town, it’s been another summer of busy trade at the pub smack bang in the middle of one of Yorke Peninsula’s most popular tourist spots. But once the holiday makers leave and many think about a new year of school, some of the focus can shift from the Hotel to the coming football season. For Publican and two-time Premiership coach Peter Green, his mind begins to turn to the Southern Eagles who are striving to go for their third flag in a row in 2010.

 

“Winning isn’t everything and the focus will be getting the club into a position where it was be competitive long after I am gone” says Green on the eve of what may be a history maker for the Southern Eagles, the result of a merge in the mid 1990’s of Southern Yorke Peninsula teams - Yorketown, Warooka and Edithburg.

 

Was it easy to be talked back into coaching again?

 

“One footy-trip too many” was his quick response when Green was asked why he was back on board again. But the real reasons on Green’s mind were to ensure the club was strong in the years to come.

 

“The main focus will be on developing the younger players, particularly the ones who were involved in the 2008 premiership. At the forefront of my mind for this year is the long term and ensuring the Southern Eagles are competitive for the next ten years.”

 

Delegation of responsibility has been a big theme so far in 2010, with B Grade coach Daniel Goldsmith and key-player Luke Abell, taking much of the pre-season training so far. Green sees it as part of a possible succession plan after being talked into coaching the team after back to back flags.

 

Having Coached at Mt Torrens, Ardrossan, Arthurton and now the Southern Eagles Green is one of the most experienced coaches going around in the competition and this plays its part on match day.

 

“I do have a good bench, but I also have a few people around the ground who provide feedback during the game. Often if something does happen on the bench, you can get a bit too focused on that and forget what else is going on in the game. It’s an advantage to have others at points around the ground and not just in the box keeping a eye on things.”

 

Green is all about getting more people involved with the club. The Eagles will also use 2 or 3 runners this season, giving the opportunity for others to be involved in the team. “They will also sit it on selection at various times during the season to experience and understand how the process works. It’s also handy to have a back up plans as well.”

 

The club will experience some player turnover this year, with four of last years team missing. Tom Wigley, who was best on ground in the Grand Final, returns to Adelaide, Jacob Selfe is heading for Noarlunga in the Southern League, Dion Woolford is returning to the family farm at Buckleeboo on the West Coast and John Preiss is heading to Jamestown having picked up an apprenticeship. But the good news is that Sam and Jack Barlow return to the team having traveled overseas in 2009. “It will be good to have to lads back, who were part of the 2008 Final win.”

 

There are a few other recruits in the pipeline ahead of the first game on April 10 at Kadina, which Green thinks will be a tough one first up.

 

“Kadina appear to be the big improvers at this stage along with Bute who have a couple of new recruits” says Green who faces those teams in the opening games of 2010.  Ahead of that, the club has a couple of trial games, playing Hills Club Lobethal away on Saturday March 20, before hosting United from the Adelaide Plains League on Sunday March 28.

 

In the past two seasons the club has had an incredible finals record – having won  7 out of 7 – despite having won only 18 games in the minor round over the same period. Giving the players the power to make their own decisions is an important key thing in the mind of Green when he is coaching. “I want the players to be resourceful enough to be able to make their own mind up when they have a split second to make a decision on the ground. Giving the younger players the confidence to make the call is important, if it turns out to be wrong, we can always reassess later at a break in the game.”

 

“The good thing about the club is we have a youthful group, which is responding well now, this is the year for us to establish the club for the years to come.”
