A best-on-ground performance from off season recruit Taylor Hine helped Diggers Rest maintain its unbeaten start to the Riddell District Football League season. The Burras easily accounted for Lancefield on Saturday, running out 49-point winners. Hine, who came to the club after playing in the AFL with Gold Coast and North Melbourne, kicked a goal and won a lot of important ball around the ground. His efforts helped Diggers Rest get off to a flying start with the Burras kicking eight goals in the first half. It wasn’t just at the attacking end that the Burras were clicking – defensively, they conceded only two goals to half-time. With the groundwork laid, there was no cause for concern in the second half with the Burras adding another six goals in the 14.14 (98) – 7.7 (49) win. Brandon Kilty was also impressive for Diggers Rest, kicking two goals, with Cole Laurie and Sean Egan also working hard. The Burras will take on Romsey this week.
