Season 2017 has started and we did it in perfect fashion claiming 2 wins on Saturday against St Francis Xavier.
The seniors put the X-men away in the first quarter using the wind to our advantage kicking six goals to nothing. From then the game was only going one way, while Jake George and Maxxy Coutts were impressive on debut and Luke Mahoney was jumping over everyone. It was the Irishman Johnny Tiernan who stole the headlines with his 4 majors. By the time the Saturday storm had hit the job was done and with the lightning over the city backdrop the final siren went with the bulls winning by 66 points.

In the earlier match the reserves were tested by a physical St Francis side, after leading at half time by 24 points the bulls were challenged, the margin had narrowed to one point just before a Donny goal on the 3/4 time siren. From then the hard work in preseason payed off finishing the game the strongest and winning by 20 points.

Masala V North Brunswick
@WJ Turner Reserve, Noble Park North
We will have this weekend off due to Easter period and be will be back the following week for our first away trip of the season, taking on Masala. Masala had a bye in round 1 so will be very fresh for their first game of the season. The boys with ‘spicy footy’ are tipped to be big improvers this year so will be a big test for us bulls as we endeavor for back to back wins.
