Grid game #2

Grid game #2 saw Ruskin Park @ the MCG for a night game between Collingwood and Brisbane. The boys played in front of a crowd of around 45,000 and didn’t waste any time getting a score on the board. Jesse, Dan and James were the major goal scorers with Ben adding his bag to the score. Caellam took a couple of really good grabs as he racked up some great defensive stats. Justin, Alex, Nicholas, Lochlan, Nathan, Teddy and Axel all played beautifully and Hi Fived the crowd as they left the ground. The Entertainment award goes to Coach Stuart for falling over the banner to a rousing reception from the magpie faithful, well done everyone.

Interclinic #2

Interclinic #2 was a great success and saw Ruskin Park host Croydon Auskick clinic. This clinic gave us a chance to see how a staggered day would work by bringing in the Seniors 30 Min’s later and by all accounts it worked well.The Juniors and Intermediates started the day on the main oval and later the soccer ground for their skills. The delayed day allowed the seniors to have an extended match on the main oval. Thanks to all involved for making this a great day.
