Brunswick (as NOBSPC)
We were embarrassed at Ormond on Anzac Day. Without wishing to trivialize the solemnity of the occasion, after the minute’s silence the Rouse was played, but only the home side responded to its call.
The first half was an ordeal. Most of the time we chased tail and, when we did get it, turned it over in the worst possible ways. Six times we conceded goals to Ormond after kicking it to them in their forward line and the disposal into our 50 was even worse, if that is possible.
The starkest fact to emerge was that over four quarters from halftime against St Mary’s to halftime on Anzac Day the score line was 23.20 to 4.6. Against.
Some late goals provided a modicum of respectability on the scoreboard, but let’s not kid ourselves that our ladder position after three rounds is not a true reflection of our efforts.
Division 1 is obviously very competitive this year, with some fit and well drilled teams out there. The time to show that NOBSPC is amongst them starts next week against Whitefriars back at Gillon Oval on Past Players Day.
