Whilst they went down by 70pts to Narooma there was a big improvement over the previous week with some terrific skills on display and impressive linkages of play out of the backline. Welcome to new players Brendan, Adam, Nik and Kaine - great to see them on board.Jeff, Shannon, Lambey and Brendan were strong across the middle along with Jules who has lost little of his first grade flair - brilliant!
In ACT AFL, Batemans Bay Seahawks travelled over the mountain to face divisional powerhouse ANU.They fought hard but were ultimately out enthused by the Students, going down 11.8.74 to 7.7.49. The Reserve Grade were again weakened by no-shows and were humbled 21.19.145 to 0.2.2 in an embarrassment to the club. Well done those who travelled and battled hard though.
