Match Report

5 Best

  1. B. ‘Roughie’ Kearon taking a hanger in the goal square in the fourth quarter and converting from point-blank range to put the mighty NOBs in front with 10 to play.
  2. M. ‘Dukes’ Karunaratne getting ton of footy on the M.Karunaratne Memorial Wing (TBC) including a strong display of overhead marking under pressure.
  3. Welcoming a further swag of new NOBs to the clubbies fold including:

    1. B. ‘The Flying Bouffant’ Hartford-Davis – New to the game of AFL but it didn’t show with plenty of toe on display by this likely looking type off the half-back flank.
    2. P. ‘Rory’ Sloan – Unflappable professional who is at ease playing off a forward or back flank or doing a turn through the middle.
    3. Johnny Meat-Axe (last name unknown so nickname substituted for surname) – Meat-axe – will split some packs this one.
    4. C. ‘mini-Lawty’ Incoll – Silky smooth disposal with plenty of game sense and a knack for popping up in the right spot at the right time.
  4. Welcoming back club stalwart L. ‘Indian Rubber Man’ Fogarty and human barometer T. ‘Dr Annan’ McLeod for their first games of the season.
  5. Solid turnout by the NOBs at the Grandview after our first home game. #thirsty

5 Worst

  1. Losing a winnable game through costly turn-overs and a lack of two-way running after getting our noses in front mid-way into the fourth quarter.
  2. M. ‘Free’ Piazza outrageously getting pinged for a free-kick and 25 metre penalty after taking matters into his own hands when the umpire overlooked a clear case of holding the man/attempted decapitation from the OGs defender.
  3. C. ‘Fridge’ Roberts being unfairly sin-binned simply for trying to improve Melbourne-Geelong bilateral relations through some friendly jumper punches.
  4. Still waiting for the return of last year’s competition B&F B. ‘3rd Best Rig’ Lawty, leading goal-kicker T. ‘Handball’ MacLeod and speccy exponent T. ‘Moose’ O’Halloran.
  5. The time it took to get a beer at the Grandview, queue out the door and did I mention we were a bit #thirsty.
