    Bulls Dillos Match Report @insider

    The Dillos in FU terms made a relatively short trip up to NE Victoria in what was the 8th contest between the 2 inaugural grand finalists. The ledger seeing the Dillos with a commanding 7-0 H2H record including 2-0 in finals.

    The ladder leading Dillos were rightly short priced favorites heading in to this one as the Bulls early season form had waived somewhat with some lackluster outings over the past month, whilst the ladder leaders were flying pumping out 1358 & 1461 over the past 2 weeks.

    Injuries saw a number of Bulls on the sidelines with McEvoy, Rockliff, Vandenberg, Scrimshaw and S Hill all out and with the late out in Salem saw the Bulls take to the field with only 14 players.

    What ensued was a record breaking day, with the Bulls ala Billy Brownless in the 94 finals series finally "getting the Armadillo off the back' with a commanding 157 point victory 1318 to 1161. The Bulls were led by Coniglio who broke the Club Record for highest individual SC score with 207 points pipping Rocky's 204 against Serengeti in Round 11 2016. His 36 disposals included 3 goals, 13 marks, 10 contested possessions and 3 clearances in one of most dominate displays seen at Mill Park.

    The Dillos plight was not helped with 2 players going down with injuries with Bowes suffering 3rd degree burns whilst trying to tag Coniglio and Wingard pulling up lame whilst trying to run down Maynard off half back.

    Gawn (158) tried to lift his team and got the points in the big tap in a enthralling duel with Lobb (98).

    Coniglio was ably supported by Hooker (106) who dominated McDOnald (54). whilst Adel Lynch (109) roamed far and wide as a crucial link man with Maynard (100) & Hill who offered plenty off half back and through the middle.

    Ziebell (110) played a lone hand up forward whilst Stewart (99) got the points over Rich Lynch (55).

    All in all it was the lack of consistency from the Dillos with 7 scores under 75 unable to make up the gap to a 14 man Bulls outfit.

    With the mid season hiatus now upon us, both teams will be hoping to clear the medicos rooms over the next 3 weeks.

    3 - Coniglio SFB
    2 - Gawn AA
    1 - Ziebell AA

    Big Tap - Gawn

    Where oh where has it all gone wrong for the Serengeti boys? In a season that has never really got going for the Buffaloes, round 11 saw them hosting @eagle_eyed and his Southern Cross Sandgropers with a chance to spark some life into their season.

    Unfortunately for the loyal supporters who have become all too familiar with the boom or bust Buffaloes there has been somewhat of a mutiny amongst the playing group with factions in the squad refusing to play until management get themselves sorted and provide the team with adequate ruck support. The result was only 11 players taking to the field in what could have been even less if youngster Nick Coffield wasn't persuaded last minute to cross from the dissenting party.

    Despite the best efforts of a dominant and truly spectacular performance from the Serengeti forward line it meant very little as the Sandgropers went about their business with an impressive professionalism. Their midfield were well on top, lep by superstar Nat Fyfe (145) and the returning Brad Crouch (127) who looks to have well and truly put an injury riddled 2018 behind him. Although not as consistent as their midfield teammates, their was enough out of the backline with Michael Hurley (132) providing at least some resistance to the Buffalo forwards and Jack Darling (135) starting to find some ominous form to do enough up forward for Southern Cross to run out comfortable winners.

    Final Scores
    Serengeti 950 lost to Southern Cross 1303

    BAFFU
    3 Nat Fyfe SCS (145)
    2 Josh Kelly SB (138)
    1 Jack Darling SCS (135)

    Giant Tap
    Ryder 73 v ... 0

    The mid-season break couldn't have arrived quicker for the Buffaloes who will look to get their club back in order over the break while the Sandgropers will look to steel themselves for another run at the finals from their current 9th position

    Eden 1122 lost to Christmas Island 1282
    To cap off a first half of the year that would rather be left in history, the Whalers played an average game against a visiting Smugglers side. But the Smugglers had better motivation to win the day with Heppell finding a new gear to BOG. Taylor, Martin, Kreuzer (probably motivated by the aspertions I cast while running the Giant Tap) and Gray also topped the 100. Pendles and Harris Andrews led the way for Eden though showing that once I figure out the starter problem, there are stars in the Sapphire Coast.

    Votes: Heppell 3, Pendles 2, Andrews 1
    Giant Tap: Kreuzer 121 def Ivan the Awesome 52

    Groote Eylandt Barracudas 1,187 defeated by Cow Bay Crocs 1,212

    Coming off a significant loss to Banchang and a long trip back home the Cuda’s were counting the cost. The Crocs on the other hand had a solid win on their home turf and were feeling upbeat knowing this week they would have Lycett back on the field to snap at the Stan-ley.

    The cost was further exacerbated with Stan-ley being a late out and calling up defender Frawley to give it his best shot. With a massive 32 hit outs Lycett smashed his way around the ground picking up 4 free kicks as the frustration reared its ugly head early on in the match.

    The homesides defence in Houli who despite a head knock he played on with a shiner racking up 38 possessions, Lloyd cleaned up with 34 disposals running off the half back, Weitering, who had the job on Gunston did well and Guthrie had 17 touches as he did the run and carry through the midfield. For the Croc’s Ceglar pinch hit in the ruck plus slotting a goal, Martin followed Guthrie through the midfield while Gunston dislocated his finger in the 4th quarter after having 16 touches. De Goey starred with 3 goals, 16 possessions which included 12 marks.

    At the other end of the ground young Petrucelle played the small forward but just couldn’t find the space to use his speed, Mihocek could only get 3 points in a strong battle with McKenna who had plenty of touches and 6 hard contested marks. With the first goal kicked by Cripps of the Jamie variety things looked good for the Cuda’s as he had plenty of the ball as he kept his opponent Witherden quite while Hawkins was on target bagging 4 goals from 5 marks. There was two Croc’s defender that were on fire in McGrath and Blakely who used their speed very well running through the midfield stacking on the disposals.

    In the middle there was some great battles, this week Corn Boy Cripps had a Hopper in his back pocket and was man handled all game, Phillips played mostly on the wing and had Taranto to deal with who picked up touches in junk time. The Bont was quiet to start with, got rotated through the forward to try and shake things up and Zorko the Magnificent was pretty average with 1 goal assisted by a couple of free kicks. Young Croc Worpel racked up 25 disposals in a great athletic display.

    The rotations off the bench seen the Croc’s Bolton play some minutes in the forward pocket and Clark through the midfield and halfback even chiming in with a goal of his own. Local hero Burgoyne bounced back from last week’s horror game and dug deep with 21 disposals and young Naughton got man handled again, tagging in at times a couple of extras keeping the kid down and as the day wore down he was reported in the 4th quarter for striking.

    In the end the Cuda’s home record this year is shocking going down again, the Croc’s @fresh played it well getting the win by putting the right amount of pressure at the right time. Croc’s now sit 8th while the Cuda’s sit 10th.

    With a mid-year break, the Cuda’s will be looking to refresh and to look for a replacement for the now retired Boyd. All is not lost for this year, with some high scoring losses earlier and a depleted side, Groote look forward to getting their shit together and giving it a crack to jump up into finals contention for 2019.

    Probably worth reminding everyone that we can only take as many picks into the draft as we have list spaces.

    He retired not long after I posted that.
    Many of his teammates decided to follow suite, so you won't find them either, and the whole lot of them didn't even hang around for the final siren.

    Seriously, how did we fall apart from that!?!?!? The crumbling Australian Cricket team, in all its glory!
