Round 2 - Teams & Latest News

Fri 21st of April at 9:23 am Image

Our season resumes at Warringal Park where we take on Heidelberg in a rematch of last year’s Grand Final.


There are two changes to the side which won at Hurstbridge in round one. Josh Totino and first-gamer Luke Dowdle come in for Anthony Doherty (injured) and James Condello.

The under-19s will again cool their jets until April 29 as both Hurstbridge and Heidelberg, our opponents in the first two rounds, are unable to field teams.

There are still a few seats left for tomorrow night’s function. Cost is $85 a head, includes gourmet food, and pre-dinner drinks package between 6.30-7.30pm (beer, wine, champagne, and soft drink). Contact Michael Lovett 0418 380979 or

Tonight we are looking for volunteers to help set up for the function. Please be at De Winton at 5pm if you can assist.

This year’s lunch on Saturday, April 29, will feature former AFL player Lance Picioane who will speak about his battle with depression since retiring from the game. He is now helping others through his Me Love You program. Cost is $30 a head and includes a two-course lunch, with drinks at bar prices. Contact Leigh Moulden 0401 418342 or
