Saturday the 16th was the 2nd pre-season carnival and our boys ran away winners
pretty convincingly. We were put into group A with Kats and Swans and played the Kats
in our first game.

With a squad of 45 players to rotate through the game there was always going to be
fresh legs on the ground.

The boys exploded out of the blocks against the Kats in the first game kicking 5 goals
to none in about 10 minutes. The Kats started to work into it late in the game thanks
to some undisciplined work from Cameron (sauce head) Ling.

The second half was similar with the boys kicking away early and the Kats working hard
to get back into. Towny swung the changed all game rotating everyone on the ground
through out. Some of the best players were Mangos, Wailu, Mudge, Simsy and Gavin
Jacks. We ran out comfortable winners.
The second game was against a tiring swans outfit and they were never in it, the boys
came out hard and once they kicked the first the flood gates open and we piled them
on. The boys structures were set up well across half forward and the centre with a
zoned wall that the swans just couldn’t get through. With everyone coming on
throughout the game the run never stopped.The boys won thanks to some good play
from Rhett, Micky, Dan, Wailu, Simsy, Rhys and Bruce.
After winning the first two games we made it through to play Port Hedland in the final
and after putting in the effort to get up and not wanting to let the Rovers have a win
against us early in the year the boys put in a big effort. The rovers had to play two
games in a row and were worn out from the start as the boys managed to work through
the game getting some extra run in the legs. As always it was a tough game against
them but we held through to beat them by 5 goals.
It was a good day for an exciting squad with lots of new recruits proving there going to
be challenging last years side for spots. Towny was pleased with how new players Simsy
(player of the carnival) played with some excellent pack marking, Toodles from down
south played well across the backline giving us some much needed height, young Dan
through the midfield and across half forward who attacked it hard, new recruit Ben
“the full forward” Brady who lead well and kicked 2 goals, to everyones surprise. Eric
“mudge” was also strong through out the day doing some exciting stuff in the forward







Stay tuned...
