Firstly today we would all like to send a big Happy Birthday to Coach Chris McDonald, we hope you have a relaxing day as we prepare to host the Latrobe Demons at Pirtek Dial Park tomorrow!
Due to technical problems at the Advocate Newspaper, teams are not in today’s paper, with a bit of luck they will be printed in tomorrow’s edition.
It’s our annual Pink Day and Our Lady Blues are coming off a weeks bye and are ready to run back out on the Park to face the Demons. This is a must win for our girls to keep their finals hopes alive for season 2020!
The Under 18’s want to taste victory again after last weekends loss to the Dockers. In a positive game for the lads, not having the breeze in the last term made it very challenging narrowly going down.
The undefeated Reserve team had a slow start last week at West Park but found their rhythm in the last term. Daniel Oates was again fantastic up forward with four goals, Veteran Nathan Russell returned to the team and snagged a couple of goals also.
Beat on ground performances in the Reserves have seen Zach Walker and James King elevated to the Senior team tomorrow.
Joining them will be Aaron Viney as he returns to the Two Blues.
Aaron played a handful of games for the Two Blues last season before injury and work commitments forced him out of the team for the year.
Returning home to Penguin from interstate and training the house down, Aaron is a sound addition to the team.
The other inclusion to the side is Julian Brown as he returns from work commitments.
Out of the team are, Will Dau (inj) Michael Edwards-Grey, Lachlan Blakemore and Jack Weller (omit)
Looking to bounce back last weeks loss against the powerful Burnie Dockers where we showed plenty of positive signs and energy, including out scoring the Dockers in the second half.
Fraser Eaton was super impressive with his best on ground performance, Dylan Bramich out muscled star big man Nick McKenna and Jack Templeton was a shining light up forward again with four goals.
The boys will be desperate for the four points tomorrow over the gallant Demons to reclaim second position on the table.
