Game of the Week was between the Muso’s Mugs and Northern 1. 

This was a very lucky win for the Mugs as the Northern started with only 4 players this included a stray from the bar. With 4 frames down the Northern went on the attack straight away winning the first gave away the second won the next two then lost the rest making the score 3/3 going into the main break. 

The Northern continues the attack in the second half winning the first 2 gave away the next 2 won the next and lost the last making the score 6/6 going into the decider.

LEAGUE:

Saturday’s match saw a similar result to the week before. 

The backline held sway, the boys in the middle did well but we just couldnít find a key forward. 

Having said that the 8.8 we kicked was an improvement on the week before.

For many footballers, both young and old, playing on the hallowed turf of the Melbourne Cricket Ground is a dream that will never be realised.

But for 32 young footballers from Broken Hill, that dream is about to become reality this Saturday night, when they take to the ground at half time of the Geelong vs Collingwood blockbuster. 

The AFL is estimating a crowd of up to 75,000 for the rematch of the two teams who played in the 2011 Grand Final.
