Great to see the colts bounce back with an outstanding win on Saturday with another youngster from Bunbury having a strong day on debut.

Patrick Farrant has been playing good footy for Bunbury footy club, and had just completed the Landmark carnival before coming up for a run. His 4 goals and a number of scoring assists showed that he has a lot to offer.

Due to technical issues and an uncharacteristic display from the colt’s, the report somehow got lost in the system. However, Xavier’s impromptu recovery session in the warm, bath like Swan River post match will no doubt sharpen the boys up for this week’s contest against the young bulldogs…that’s if they haven’t picked up a nasty rash from a winter algal bloom.

After thawing out on Saturday night it was good to look back on our day out at Lathlain and know we cobbled together 3 wins.

The colts kicked us off and the boys handled the wet conditions brilliantly. By half time the game was over after the young ducks had piled on 9.3 to a solitary point. That dominance was on the back of a break out game from Blake Pescud who had a staggering 36 touches. Grayden Wilson returned to give us drive off half back and Greg Humphries played one of his best for the year to be strong over the footy all day.

Really good response from the boys on the weekend with all 3 grades responding well.

Even though the young Ducks went down in the colts by 58 points, they battled hard for the first 3 quarters before being overpowered in the last. They are very, very young at the moment, and we are playing so many boys from across the state that we make it hard for them to gel every week, but that’s what we do.

Disappointing day all round at the new Claremont oval and we came away with donuts from all three grades. The colts started well and matched it with the young Tigers for a half, but like last week the pressure took its toll and the opposition ran away with the contest in the last 50 minutes. Oscar Matthews continued his consistently strong form in the ruck and also added a nice contested mark and goal when resting forward.

Horrid day all round with all three grades losing in sub par performances!

The colts were in it at 3 quarter time but a physically bigger and stronger Falcons unit broke the game open in the last and stormed away to an 8 goal victory. Mitch Bain was outstanding all day and finished with 26 touches and Oscar Matthews was a dominant force around the ground with his ruckwork and general play. William Reidy bounced back to good form down back and Joel Curtis showed a heap of potential in his second game of colts footy.

Coaches Blog Round 11 2017

Thursday, June 22, 2017 - 11:46 AM

A good day for the club upon our return after the double bye, where 12 points were banked even though I didn’t think we played our best footy in any grade!

The colts closed out the game by 23 points in tough conditions. They may as well have played in torrential rain given the state of the oval! It was incredibly dewy and the deck didn’t dry out until 3rd quarter time which meant any sort of clean ball handling or high skill level was made impossible.

Coaches Blog Round 8 2017

Thursday, June 22, 2017 - 11:43 AM

The old saying’ “you only get out what you put in” was pretty apt on Saturday with just the one win coming from a committed reserves outfit.

The colts were really flat and trailed all day before an amazing 5 minutes of footy from Tommy Whittle almost pinched it! Incredibly, he nailed 4 goals after being swung forward from defence and with 2 minutes to go it looked like our kids had stolen the win. But the footy gods got it right and the young lions went down the other end and scored to quite rightly secure a deserved win. Their effort was far superior and they were the better team.
