BULLetin – Round 16 Review

Round 16 saw the Masala boys come to Allard Park to take on the mighty bulls. With the wind in the first quarter the tigers were able to produce some silky skills to get on the scoreboard but it was the men from the north who would quickly gain the ascendancy. Jake George put on a show up forward and was able to kick 10 despite needing every chance he got to get to double figures. Chris Gregory’s used his sticky finger to take everything that came near him in his return to the seniors. Lucevic found some hot form down back and Ash Rae was lightning on the wings. With the bulls leading at 3/4 time by 77 points the game opened right up in the last, it would produced 15 goals, 11 of them went to the boys from Brunswick, finishing 124 points in front.

In the early game we took on the undermanned tigers in a game that would guarantee finals if we won. Despite a very, very late withdrawal from the game by ‘ankles’ Montalto which gave ‘the Pav’ his return from injury, the bulls were able to dominate from the onset kicking 10 goals to none in the first. The reserves boys were able to show their speed, pressure and sharp skills, even Johnny Tiernan pulled out some party tricks. One thing the bulls weren’t showing was any mercy and by 3/4 time had already piled on 200 points. With Goyne, Kiellar and Branch dominating the midfield, Salloum and Manoukian were provided plenty of chances, between the two of them they would combine for a total of 19 goals. The bulls would finish a massive 234 points in front and a spot in the finals confirmed.

In the early game the bulls started strongly with Donny Manoukian and Mick Salloum kicking us out to a 29 point lead at half time. The game changed after the break as the ‘wickers came out firing dominating the centre clearances and getting the margin back to within a kick before the last break. Fortunately for the bulls, the boys lead by Branch and Kaminski were able to wrestle back the momentum, finishing the game 22 points in front.
