Selection for Round 1 v Turvey Park Bulldogs - Maher Oval - Saturday 17 April
It's finally here. After seemingly eleventy billion days we are back to competition sport this weekend where we travel to Maher Oval to take on the Turvey Park Bulldogs.
For first grade coaches Mark 'Curl' Carroll and Jake Barrett, Reserve Grade coach Mitch Robinson, U17.5s coach Ryan Bartholomew, A Grade coach Claudia Barton, A-Reserve coach Sarah Hooper, B Grade coach Sonya Buchanan, C Grade coach Rylie Macauley and U17s coach Tracy Puntoriero, it's the end of a busy summer, some fantastic trials, amazing training attitudes and a build up of tension in kick starting the season. We are ready!
For first grade football, it's welcome to the Hoppers for first game Club debutants in Alex Carroll, Jeremy Sykes, Jayden Carroll, Zach Oliver and Tennyson Vance. It's also welcome to first grade in debutant Tom Holden, rewarded for a great off season of training and trials. And it's also welcome back to the Hoppers to Marshal Macauley and Luke Gerhard. Last but not least, it's congratulations to Marshal on 150 first grade games for the Coolamon Rovers.
Post game the teams will venture to the AFL Rules Club for a drink with the hosts, before re-settling at the Wagga RSL Club, downstairs in the Bowler's Room adjacent to the Sportman's Bar. Team Awards will get under way around 6.30 pm, together with an opportunity to hear the thoughts from the coaches on getting our season underway.
